Pezzutti the Mr Modified favourite

ANDREW PEZZUTTI enters tomorrow night’s 50-lap Mr Modified championship as the form driver and is a strong favourite to take honours.

Pezzutti returns to Lismore Speedway a last start winner after he took out the main event in the inaugural appearance of V8 Dirt Modifieds at Rockhampton Speedway last weekend.

Pezzutti has enjoyed a successful season and there’s nothing he’d like better than to wind down his 2009/10 season campaign with a win in the prestigious Mr Modified race at Lismore.

With some of the best Dirt Modified drivers in the country entered, Pezzutti knows he faces a tough assignment but is up for the challenge.

“Any race is a challenge, but it’s good to enter this one at Lismore a last start winner after winning at Rockhampton,” he said.

The Mr Modified championship final will be highlighted with a mandatory pit stop after the completion of the first 25-lap stanza.

Crews will be stationed on the infield to service their cars with fuel and tyres in a time out period in preparation for the final 25 laps.

It all adds to the spectacle of the show.

“When you have the likes of Mark Robinson, Andrew Pezzutti, Darren Latimer, Kevin Britten and Phil McNamara in the field, it sets the scene for an exciting main event,” Lander said.

Meanwhile, national Super Sedan series winner Matt Pascoe will again saddle up for V8 Dirt Modified competition after a highly successful season racing sedans.

Pascoe recently raced to victory in the NSW Dirt Modified championship at Lismore and will definitely be one of the drivers to beat tomorrow night.

Lander will again admit all children aged 12 years and under free of charge accompanied by an adult.
