JORDAN Rae can't put a foot wrong at Simpson Speedway.
It seems whenever the Bannockburn-based speedster hits the south-west circuit, he winds up waving the chequered flag.
Rae's affinity with the track broke new ground on Saturday night when he saluted in the formula 500 feature from Brodie Davis and Angus Hollis in a historic night for the volunteer-run club.
It had a record 135 nominations across the wingless sprintcar, speedcar and the formula 500 classes in a major tick for the sport.
Rae, who raced again at Premier Speedway on Sunday night as The Standard went to print, said he relished tackling the popular Simpson track.
"It was a perfect night. I won the qualifier, I won the heat, we couldn't put a foot wrong," he said.
I've been spot on at (Simpson) so I think I'm a one-track-wonder these days.- Jordan Rae
"The car was absolutely spot on and the track was cool. You could pass on it so it was just a good night overall for us.
"I've had a lot of luck down there lately. I've won three for three at Simpson.
"I've been spot on at the one track so I think I'm a one-track-wonder these days."
Rae said Simpson simply suited his driving style.
"It's probably the only track at Victoria in the moment where you can actually run two lanes," he said.
"There's a lot of room for passing, especially in our class.
"There's always room - start of the night, end of the night - you always have two lanes so you normally see the quicker guys up front.
"That's the best thing about Simpson. You get a lot of other tracks where you just get stuck behind cars in a single lane and you're in trouble.

"Things are so tight in my class at the moment and you've got probably 40 or 50 of the best drivers in the country so it definitely makes it hard."
Rae said his season had been travelling well after winning the Speedweek series.
"We won the first week at Simpson and ended up winning the series," he said.
He said he'd "take it as it comes" in terms of planning the rest of his season.
"We'll probably try and continue on with our Stampede Series. We've only done one round of that so far," Rae said.
"It depends on COVID too because days change so we'll just take it as it comes."
In other results, Portland driver Luke Storer defeated his brother Daniel in the wingless sprintcars feature. South-west driver Alex Ross was sixth overall while Cobden's Carly Walsh did not finish.
Travis Mills was successful in the speedcar class, defeating Nathan Smee and Matt Jackson.
All three classes were again in action at Allansford's Premier Speedway on Sunday night.
