10 seasons strong
All Stars Media posted Saturday March 25, 2017.
After celebrating 10 seasons the year was culminated by a formal Awards night and with a capacity crowd it just highlighted how successful the season had been.
Even though it was the 10th season it was also a season of firsts for the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series again creating history. It was the first time brothers have stood on the podium together and the first time two sets of brothers raced together in an A Main (Paul & Chris Solomon and Brad & Anthony Foster), also the first time we have had brothers share the honours of winning the Series Championship again proving the strong family influence within the All Stars.
The First time we have run a $10K to win show and the first time we have run a double header weekend competing at Adelaide Motorsport Park and Sunline Speedway, Waikerie both tracks being for the first time. With most of the firsts covered below sums up very briefly other achievements over the 11 round (16 week) season.

Inducted the 9th member into the Hall of Fame.
Series mascot Snowman somehow managed to survive his 9th season with the help of lots of superglue
And as always smiles, laughter, new friends, too many cans and of course a few tears!
To say we are proud of our achievements this past season is an understatement. We all worked hard to recognise this milestone achievement and we believe that we have continued to lift our image and professionalism but also managed to maintain the All Star family fun image which is very important to us. Thanks to those that shared it with us and roll on next season which by the way will start in about 7 months!! Mandy Searle tells us.
