It has certainly been an up and down 2019-20 season. Totally Speedway’s Daniel Powell has gone out and put together his Top 5 driver rankings for the Super Rods.

1: Jamie May (Vic)
There is no question that the Super Rod Cup at Premier Speedway and the Trevor Podger Memorial at Simpson Speedway are regarded as the two biggest events on the Super Rod calendar every season, and it was May who impressively take out both events and it naturally earned him the top spot in this season’s rankings. In what was a fantastic season, he also won the Southern Rod Showdown (Super Rods VS SDAV Hot Rods) in style and in early February claimed a minor podium finish (third) at Laang Speedway.



2: Troy Gleeson (Vic)
Like May, Gleeson was a front-running contender throughout both the Super Rod Cup and Trevor Podger Memorial events and he was able to come away with minor podium finishes: third and second place. Outside of those two standout performances, he drove to the feature-race spoils at Premier Speedway in late February.

3: Neville Gange (Vic)
Gange enjoyed a consistent run throughout the season and finished fourth in the Super Rod Cup and sixth in the Trevor Podger Memorial. There was also a third-place finish in the Southern Rod Showdown and picked up a feature-race win over the Christmas-New Year period at Laang Speedway.

4: Michael Coad (Vic)
Linking up with the Duynhoven family team this past season, Coad managed to give a good account of himself during the season. At the Super Rod Cup, he finished in sixth and other standout results during the season included a fourth in the Southern Rod Showdown, a victory in the season opener at Simpson Speedway and a pair of second-place finishes at Laang Speedway and Avalon Raceway tracks.

5: Paul Verhoeven (Vic)
In what was a standout season, Verhoeven’s season highlight without a doubt came at Avalon Raceway, where he won his maiden feature race. Other results from the season were two second-place finishes in the opening two race meetings of the season, along with another second at Premier Speedway in late February, a fifth in the Southern Rod Showdown, a ninth in the Super Rod Cup and a seventh in the Trevor Podger Memorial.
