Graeme Simms is currently celebrating his 50th year of drag racing, and is hoping to punctuate it this weekend with a win at the Prestige Lock Service Goldenstates at the Perth Motorplex.

Over the past half-century, Simms has always competed in the Super Stock bracket while dabbling in “too many other classes to count” including a number of seasons in Pro Stock, holding records in B/Gas and F/Gas as well as B, C and D/MP.

Round two Supercharged Outlaws winner Alan Mahnkoph might have missed the last two rounds of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series due to work commitments, but that hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm for this weekend’s round five at the Perth Motorplex.

The Prestige Lock Service Goldenstates will be held at the Perth facility this Saturday, November 11.
