This Saturday the Riverside Speedway is set to host the final round of the Southern Bullet Series for Modified Sprints.
Jason McMullin leads the series heading into the final and despite only having a slender lead of just two points, he shouldn’t feel any pressure.
McMullin has been Mr Consistent the entire series, he is yet to win a race, but hasnt had to, if he can remain consistent this Saturday he should claim the first ever Southern Bullet Series Trophy.
Ray Phillips sits in second but he has been the opposite of McMullin, Phillips has easily been the quickest car on track, but reliability has cost him dearly as has Kev Fulton who sits a further six points back in third, Fulton led after round one but has also been hit with mechanical woes.
Scott Williamson shares third spot and like McMullin has just put runs on the board each meeting, the lead is certainly still in Williamson’s sight after what has been an impressive debut season.

The club will also host the Southland Saloon Championships, Euan Shearing and Camden Crack have been the in form drivers since New Year and must feature as the championship favorites, Crack is only in his first few months of Saloon racing and has certainly left an impression on the field.
In his debut year Mark Dobson has been impressive, Dobson will be another to watch closely while the experience of Dean Shearing will be hard to ignore. Jeff Richardson and Nigel Olsen also come of age last meeting and also should not be discounted.

The final grade battling it out for the Southland Championship are the Production Saloons, reigning champ Tam Clements will have his hands full with not just the opposition cars but with his older sister Asha who has had the better of him in recent meetings.
Sibling rivalry will be at boiling point when these two go head to head.
Trying to spoil the Clements party will be Tony Jones and Dylan Mountney who have claimed a number of race wins this season, and Acacia Mitchell along with Emma Phillips have also been threatening, this championship will be a real lottery.
Racing gets underway this Saturday night 5pm.
