After the celebrations of turning 100 last weekend it is now Phil Locks turn to celebrate 100. The Series stalwart has only missed one round since the series commenced back in 2007-08 and as he rolls into Heartland Raceway for RD8 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series this Saturday he clocks up his 100th show. “What an incredible effort this is. His loyalty, passion and dedication to the All Stars is amazing and we cannot thank him enough for his support over the years. He was the first member of our Hall of Fame “Legends” Award back in 2011/12 and he has won the Drivers Driver Award 8 out of the 10 times it has been given. Our drivers have actually renamed the award and affectionately call it the “Locky” Award. Phil has been supported over all these years by the same crew members and these guys must also be thanked for not only their hard work with Phil but also their loyalty to us also.” Promoter Searle says.
Matthew Reed is returning to try and double up his victory in his V92 Maxim. Reed has 2 series wins so far this season so No.3 would be a bonus. V29 Michael Tancredi showed speed last weekend and wants to repeat his RD2 victory. SA44 Dan Evans has secured a Maxwell lease engine for the night and will be one to watch. Current Series Champ Paul Solomon & Chris Solomon are both making a return this Saturday. Throw in SA33 Mark Caruso, SA96 Brendan Guerin, V77 Brayden Parr, V78 Chris Campbell all wanting to take out first place. With a strong field nominated teams will be looking for consistency to lock in points for the Championship
Driver giveaways and autograph sessions and with cooler weather forecast at Moama it should make for perfect racing conditions. Come and be part of the All Star action and help to celebrate Lockys 100th show.
Heartland Raceway, Moama where the actions starts at 6.00pm.
