The USA’s ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer
All Stars Media posted Friday January 17, 2020.
Brad Keller Racing is making the overnight drive from NSW to Simpson to compete in the All Star Challenge.
Another name added on short notice after the cancellation of Valvoline Raceway’s who has managed to source a 360 and come and have a go at the $10K to win show. Driving for Keller Racing is none other than the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer. Shaffer only flew into Australia this week and they planned on racing in Sydney this weekend and the Classic week but the weather had other plans for them.
So now the Shaffer gets to check out Heytesbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway for his first race in Australia. Shaffer is one of the worlds most respected & accomplished sprintcar drivers having won the Knoxville Nationals in 2010 and many other major events including the $100,000 to win Sprintcar World Championship at Mansfield Speedway in 2018.
“What can I say? Wow…. I am a bit speechless. Thanks to Brad who managed to make this happen. And source probably the last 360 lease engine around. Brad raced with us last season at the Spud Show at the Mount in Jack Gartner’s car. He really got the thing flying. What a privilege to have Tim Shaffer run with us.” A very surprised Mandy Searle told us.
So if you weren’t sure about it now you should be. Make the trip to Simpson for tomorrow nights All Star Challenge - if two teams can drive from Sydney and change engines then you can get there too.
