Chris's speedway career revs back to life this weekend
SPEEDWAY: Chris Szepanowski will make his return to racing in the super stockers at tomorrow night's McCosker Rocky Speedway Tin Top Smack Down.
"It's been probably three or four years since I've raced,” the Rocky driver said.
"I've been helping one of my mates out with his car and got the itch to get back in the car again.
"I've rebuilt the car from the ground up. I'll just play from the back and see how we go.
"I'm not looking for a placing or anything; if I can get the car on the trailer at the end of the night that's going to be a bonus for me.”
Rockhampton Saloon Car Club president Josh Keene said it was a jam-packed program, with the feature the Queensland production sedan title.
"We've got 30 cars for that division and in total we've got 96 cars in the pits so this is the most cars we've had for the season.
"We've got 50 travelling teams so we're looking forward to a big one.”
Mick Johnson and Russell Cowley will fly the local flag in the production sedans.
"The last meeting where we had the production sedans here Russell Cowley wasn't too far away but one of his relatives, Jim Cowley from the Sunshine Coast, actually won in a late-model Commodore.
"He'll obviously be one of the favourites because he knows his way around here now but anyone can win.
"That's the beauty of proddie racing; any one of the 30 has got a good chance and it's a 40-lap final and over 40 laps a lot of things can happen.”
Today's program also includes Round 2 of the CQ modified sedan masters series, super sedans, juniors and street stocks.
Gates at the Rockhampton Showgrounds open at 3pm, with racing from 5pm.
