All Stars Media posted Thursday February 9, 2017.
Nominations have rolled in for the 7th Tyson Perez Memorial with entries from N.T, ACT, SA, Vic and the USA and all the 360 hot shots wanting to be a part of this emotionally charged event.
Numbers are already in the mid 30’s and the race paying $3000 to win with a total payout of $12K on the A Main. For the 6th year in a row Travis Rilat has flown in from Texas this week to compete in the race meeting held to honour his mate and again will be driving the PJS Motorsport USA29 XXX. Rilat winning the event last year is focused on repeating his efforts again.
Tony Bartlett Auto’s SA75 Cool has won the event 2 times in the past with Matt Egel behind the wheel. Bartlett has Chris Solomon driving this season and both Solomon and Bartlett will be giving it their all to take out the win.
This event is very special to car owner Tony Bartlett as he knew Spud for many years, with a young Spud travelling with the Bartlett team on the road for World Series. TB would dearly love to make it No 3 for the team. Chris also has special memories of Tyson and won the inaugural event so No 2 would be special for him also.
SA22 Chad Ely was close mates with Tyson and will be there to be part of the night. Ely has been on the dais many times for this event and a win has been on his ‘bucket list ‘since the race was introduced but he hasn’t just quite managed it.
Competition will be hard and fast with V7 Paul Solomon, V34 Brenten Farrer, SA44 Dan Evans, V77 Darren Mollenoyux, SA33 Mark Caruso, SA69 Cody Atkins, V36 Tim Van Ginnekin, SA45 Jake Tranter just to name a few of the stars rolling out for the event .
Be a part of this very special event. The emotion is sure to be raw and the racing fast. Borderline Speedway, Mount Gambier Saturday night 11th February. On track action starts at 5.30.
Travis Rilat & Chad Ely performs the National Anthems at last year’s running of the event.
