SUPER RODS

Last Saturday night saw Shaun Walsh taste feature-race victory at Simpson Speedway as he took out the prestigious Trevor Podger Memorial for a record seventh time throughout his illustrious Super Rod career.

While it’s common in speedway to follow in the footsteps of family members, the Howard and Walsh clan have proved that an aptitude for speedway is quite clearly in their blood, with successful racing careers having spanned three generations.

Off the back of winning the Podger Memorial earlier this season, Andrew Howard once again found himself in victory lane on Saturday night, winning the Victorian Super Rods Title at Mortlake’s Mid-Western Speedway.

The Super Rods took to Geelong’s Avalon Raceway last Saturday night where they contested the Combined Waste Services feature race and it was Darryl Nelson who claimed a late-race victory ahead of Andrew Howard and Howard Stansfield.
