In-form Worling chases cash at Modified Sedan Nationals
GREG Worling hopes to continue his recent run of success when he contests the Lismore Nissan and Kia Modified Sedan Nationals at Lucas Oil Lismore Speedway tomorrow night.
Worling, a regular Lismore winner over a number of seasons, is the form driver after dominating major events in the past month.
The former Australian champion took out the rich Kings Royal race at Kingaroy Speedway and soon after followed up with another lucrative main event win at Toowoomba Speedbowl.
Worling will race a VY Holden Commodore when he meets some of the top drivers from NSW and Queensland.
Promoter David Lander is delighted with the nomination list, headed by current Australian champion Aidan Raymont (BA Ford Falcon).
"The line-up includes Australian champions and state titleholders and there are plenty of drivers capable of taking the honours," Lander said yesterday.
"While Greg Worling on form is one of the strong favourites, there are a number of other genuine contenders."
Lander is offering some good prizemoney for the Nationals, paying $1500 for the win. There is $1000 for the runner-up, $750 for third and $550 for fourth, with further prizemoney for placings down to 10th.
Max Clarke (VE Holden Commodore), another former Australian champion, and NSW titleholder David Jacobi (VE Holden Commodore) are also among the entries.
Another Lismore star and former national champion Jason Jolley (VZ Commodore) is certain to be among the top point scorers from the qualifying heats. If he secures a good, upfront starting position in the Nationals final he will be hard to beat.
Steve and Shannon Blackburn, who will travel from Roma, will line up in super-fast TE Ford Cortinas rather than the Holden Commodores or Ford Falcons driven by most entrants.
