Jubilant winners race to finish line

MARK Heaton (Compact Speedcars), Kyle Mock (Wingless Sprints), Stephen Kurtz (Street Stockers) and Jack Murphy (Junior Sedans) were all jubilant winners at Valvoline Raceway in Granville on Saturday night.

Heaton, the Australian Compact Speedcar Champion, took out the prestigious and inaugural running of the Alan Streader 34’ event with the great man himself in attendance, held over 17 laps.
Steven Kurtz was a jubilant maiden main event winner in the 20-lap Street Stocker side of things after moving past early leader Stevie Walsh and jetting away largely untroubled for the remainder.
“This is the first time up here getting a win, I’m just stoked,” he said.
“I’ve come close a couple of times but now I can finally say I’ve done it.
“When I got past Steve (Walsh) I just concentrated on clicking off the laps and hitting my marks.”

The next event at Valvoline Raceway this Saturday, October 19 and will be the Hi-Tec Oils Ultimate Speedway Challenge featuring USC Sprintcars for the first time this season, Speedcars and Late Models plus fireworks.
