Three winners from 2013 will be back to defend their titles in Saturday’s second annual Quad Memorial Night at South Buxton Raceway.
Merlin’s Eren Vanderiviere will be looking for a third straight Len Bryden memorial race victory in the Tirecraft Sport Stocks.
Vanderiviere led all 25 laps of the 2012 Bryden feature and took the lead on lap five to lead the rest of the way last August.
Vanderiviere leads the Sport Stocks with four feature wins this season and leads the division by 68 points in search of his fourth straight championship.
The race is held in memory of Len Bryden, who along with his wife Peggy ran South Buxton from 1981-91 and ‘93.

Updated Modified information
Two race teams ran with heavy hearts on Saturday night.
And both teams were able to pay tribute to a departed friend the best way they could - with feature wins at South Buxton Raceway.
Chatham’s Jeff Daniels captured the Schinkels Gourmet Meats UMP Modified mid-season championship and Blenheim’s Shawn Hope won the Autotech Bombers feature.
Kyle Hope also won a checkered flag, taking the first heat race in the Tirecraft Mini-Mods.
The three Hope brothers - Brett, Kyle and Shawn - along with Daniels, displayed ‘Teddy’ decals on their cars in memory of Devin Tedford, a 21-year-old Blenheim native who died last Monday.
