Masters Series | Garry Rush

Ten times Australian Sprintcar Champion Garry Rush is still, twenty years after his retirement, regarded as the greatest Aussie Sprintcar driver of all time.

His record speaks for itself, as do the memories that thousands of Aussies cherish having seen him wheel both Sprintcars and Speedcars to victory across a multitude of decades, states and tracks around the country.

From humble beginnings as an 18-year-old in the mid-1960’s he went on to conquer our sport like no other and with nearly 40 years going sideways (including a journey into black track racing briefly as well) Garry is revered both here and in the USA and NZ as our greatest ever.

“Ten Star GR” lives and breathes Speedway having spent two tenures at the helm as an owner of his beloved Parramatta City Raceway – a passion for the sport in Sydney that still to this day burns to his core. Known simply as “Rushie” this living legend of our sport is without doubt our Methanol Moonshine ultimate Master.

Ten Australian title wins, seven Warrnambool Classics, the historic win in the Speedcar AGP at the incredible Sydney Showground finale plus literally hundreds of Sprintcar victories across every State and Territory – the pic in the label was hand selected by Rushie and is captured by the late Bill Meyer at Canberra during Garry’s incredibly dominant era!

We’re honoured to add Garry to our list of superstars in the “Hall of Shine” that we started creating back in June 2020.
