The 2021 Latrobe Speedway Sedan Drivers Association annual Ironman event for SSA Street Stocks is on tap this Saturday Night at the Gulf Western & Independent Oils Raceway.


With over $5000 prize money kindly donated by some generous sponsors, the 2021 Ironman event will serve as great prelude to the 2020/2021 SSA Street Stocks Tasmanian State Title to be held in a fortnight’s time at the same venue.

In what is a very unique format the driver who qualifies in pole position for the forty lap A Main will earn $200 before having to start from the rear of the field and will choose who starts alongside them. This will happen right through the field until the grid positions are all allocated


With the size of the field that will converge on the Gulf Western & Independent Oils picking a winner of the “Ironman” will be extremely challenging as is the case whenever the class hits the racetrack.


The Holden Commodores of Tasmanian Champion Nathan Russell, Steven Harvey, Matt Hammond and Brad McKendrick have each had turn to taste victory in main event competition this season and are sure to figure this weekend.


Five Time Tasmanian Champion Troy Russell can never be discounted in his Ford Falcon along with Dale Riley and Corey Bauld who also campaign the blue oval brand.


Competitors will be racing in honour of the late Rex Shepard who has been a massive supporter of the sport in Tasmania for many years.


SSA Junior Sedans will provide some quality support action with racing getting underway from 6pm.
