The ongoing battle for supremacy in the 2017 Speedcar Super Series between four times National champion Adam Clarke, former national champ Nathan Smee and rising NSW star in the making Michael Stewart will reach a new level this Saturday night at Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway for the Tim Crouch Memorial.
The annual affair, which honours the memory of tremendous young South Aussie Speedcar wheel twister Tim Crouch, will see the continuing points battle intensify around the awesome Murray Bridge bullring which was seemingly built with Speedcar racing in mind.
The Murray Bridge circuit will be the perfect boxing ring for this title defining bout as the time-honoured rivalry between Smee and Clarke continues and Michael Stewart looks to get one up on the NSW legends.
Drivers have come from QLD, NSW and Victoria to take on the local heroes - including the man with the most sentimental value to win - Jamie Crouch in his immaculate #7.
This will be the 66th SSS meeting and more importantly, the 7th running of Tim Crouch’s race.
The Series has paid out in excess of $600,000 since it's inception thanks to the hard work and passion of Ken Jenkins and his team of series officials.
