TENNANT Creek Speedway
opened the 2015 season on
Saturday night with a feel-
ing of excitement but sad-
ness in their hearts.
A lap of honour and a minute
silence was held to remember
Geoff Harwood, a valued volun-
teer of speedway; one of the most
volunteers you would ever come
He was always there to lend a
hand and was always the first to
jump in and help and will be sadly
missed by all.
With Formula 500s, NT Sedans,
Street Stocks and two lots of Ju-
nior Sedan classes – Rising Stars
and Allstars – it was bound to
be two nights of action-packed
Due to a lack of nominations, the
60-Lapper had to be postponed to
later on in the season.
Formula 500s were definitely a
crowd favourite with local Justin
Hooker taking on Boysie from
Darwin and new contender, Ker-
Justin was flying until he had
some engine troubles and had to
pull out of the race which gave
way for ‘Greasy’ to show his stuff
and let everyone know he could
still race with the best of them.
Kerrin took out the feature race
on Sunday night followed by
The rising stars showed they
may be new to racing but they
were going to give it their all.
Local favourite Michael Jones
showed he had some of his dad’s
genes when he took out the first
heat of his first-ever race.
Lachie , Charlie, Shane and Bro-
die raced hard and put up a good
challenge with Lachie taking out
the last race Saturday night.
Brodie thought he would put his
sister’s car to the test and kissed
the wall in spectacular style.
Final results for Sunday were
Michael Jones taking the che-
quered flag, Shane Greening
second and Charlie Cook in third
The Junior Sedan class may still
be young but they handled the
track like legends.
Local Jayden Giezanndanner
and Jack Yates challenged the out-
of-towners with some first class
racing and Lance Carew showed
why he holds all titles in the NT
by taking out the feature followed
by Corey Greening and Jack Yates
in third position.
NT Sedans were loud and crazy
and one ended up on fire on
Saturday night but was able to
rectify problems to continue rac-
With contenders from Kununur-
ra and Katherine they put on a
Tom Pfennig got the chequered
flag followed by Tim Westwood
and Brett Thompson.
The Streets Stocks put on some
very close racing with Rod Berry
taking on the local boys in their
Commodores and showing them
the Ford was something to be
Alan Spence gave up one of his
races to allow racing to continue
when the firies were called to a
fire in town and racing had to be
stopped for safety reasons.
Without Alan giving up racing to
fight the fire the event would not
have continued on Saturday night.
In the final Brett Brooks took
off like a demon and no matter
what the other boys tried to do
he held out to take the chequered
flag, followed by Col Fry and
