Alan Streader recalls: I held the altitude record at Calperum Speedway, When I was living in Broken Hill I was a regular competitor at the racetrack, In one race two cars came together in front of me, I had no time to stop and no-were to go, I hit the back wheel of one of the other cars and launched myself high enough to take out the over head lighting.
At a later presentation night I was awarded a trophy for not missing a meeting in 2 years, based in Broken Hill I still competed in more meetings than the locals.
