If you weren’t at LismLiore Speedway on Saturday night, you missed a great program of racing. There’s something about the noise and the smell that gets your blood pumping. There was a bit of everything for the racegoer with heats for modified sedans, street stocks, wingless sprints, fast 4s, litre sprints and the junior sedans. There was even some ‘fire’ works after sunset for that extra added burst of adrenalin.

Aiden Raymont was definitely pumping in car 28, a BA Ford Falcon, when he made a back-to-back win to be first past the post in the 30-lap Lismore Nissan & Kia 3 Grand Slam. Greg Worling in the number 3 car was hot for the scent of Raymont’s rubber but it was just too tough job a keeping up with Raymont’s quest for the chequered flag.

Results for the meet were: modified sedans: 1st Adrian Raymont, 2nd Greg Worling, 3rd car 42; street stocks: 1st Paul Reeves, 2nd Mark Quirk, 3rd Lewis Gamble; wingless sprints: 1st Aaron Ackerley, 2nd David Eggins, 3rd Robert Mazzer; fast 4s: 1st Brock Armstrong, 2nd Kevin Willis, 3rd Neil Claydon; litre sprints: 1st Kurt Wilson, 2nd Brad Seagrove, 3rd Justin Pirlo; junior sedans: 1st Ryan Green, 2nd Matthew Layton, 3rd Ryan Gorton.
