While it’s common in speedway to follow in the footsteps of family members, the Howard and Walsh clan have proved that an aptitude for speedway is quite clearly in their blood, with successful racing careers having spanned three generations.

Off the back of winning the Podger Memorial earlier this season, Andrew Howard once again found himself in victory lane on Saturday night, winning the Victorian Super Rods Title at Mortlake’s Mid-Western Speedway.

The Super Rods took to Geelong’s Avalon Raceway last Saturday night where they contested the Combined Waste Services feature race and it was Darryl Nelson who claimed a late-race victory ahead of Andrew Howard and Howard Stansfield.

Last Saturday night saw the Super Rods in action at Hamilton’s Western Speedway for round one of the Western Cup and it was Jason Kavanagh who returned from retirement to take the win in the Grayland Racing machine, ahead of Shawn Duynhoven and Troy Gleeson.
