MChugh is first QLD Legend Honoured for Toowoomba Opener

Jamie McHugh is the first Queensland Speedway legend to be honoured at Hi-Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway for the 2018/2019 season.

The Miami (Gold Coast) former national champion will have his career celebrated this Saturday night as part of the season opening USC �Carnival of Power� proceedings on a night where his son Lachlan now has even more incentive to get the A-Main Sprintcar win.
