Rep’s Race Reports …..

Superstocks – Barry
Superstock numbers were again boosted with five visitors, giving a total of 16 cars.
The track conditions were ideal for fast racing, with a slick surface catching out some drivers and resulting in spin-outs at crucial times.Race One saw Quinn Ryan (46B) in the ex Shane Penn/James Buckrell owned car, take out the win after starting from grid 4.
Wayne Talbot (23B) was second after starting from grid 3, with the big mover being Joe Faram (4B) who started from grid 12 to finish a creditable third place. Unfortunately, Joe was experiencing steering box problems and withdrew for the night after the first race.Also out was Calyn Clarke (89R) with a blown motor, and Jason Wilson (17B) with a broken rear axle and no spare. Due to a computer hiccup, the race ran for 16 laps before officials pegged the result at 12 laps as scheduled.
Race Two was a benefit to veteran Andy McCabe (31P) who started from grid two, and with Joe Faram not fronting for his grid one slot, McCabe took off with the rest of the field chasing to race end. Quinn Ryan was hotly in pursuit after starting from grid 9, to finish in second place.
Third was Quintin Butcher (98B) who also had a dream start from grid 3, with open space in front at the start.

The third race was the Feature event with drivers raring to go after a possible no race due to the fireworks scheduled to start at 9.30pm.
Randal Tarrant (66B) in his first year of Superstocks drew pole position, but was spun out exiting the first corner melee, to allow Zach Lawrence (22B) starting from Grid 3, through to the lead.
Lawrence, in his lower powered six cylinder car led for several laps until the pack closed in, and with Quinn Ryan threatening to slip through, Ryan was expertly blocked by Quintin Butcher exiting the pit corner.
The resulting melee of cars then allowed Marty Cooke (86B) who started from grid two, to sneak through for the lead and his first win for the season.
Nick Vallance (45G), started from Grid 8 to finish on second, with Zach Glenny (47B) really flying to finish third after starting from the rear of the grid off 13.
Quinn Ryan (46B) has had a great start to the season with 40 points scored after two nights of racing, with the next driver being Zach Lawrence (22B) on 14 points.
We eagerly await the return of Jason Long (41B), Thomas Stanaway (87B), Adam Groome (9B), Steve Jude (16B) and Regan O’Brien (52B) who have some chasing to do to catch the in-form Quinn Ryan – bring it on.
Stockcars – Andrew
The Visiting Drivers didn’t have it all their own way this week, 261B Ethan Anderson Took Charge and came away with Both Heat Wins, while 14B Jemma Palmer Continued her Electric Start to the Season with Good 2nd and 3rd Placings.
Ministocks – Claire
Another good night of Ministock Racing, lots of level headed racing going on in both Groups which is what we like to see! Especially with our Ministock Team Challenge coming up on the 25th November. 12B Ryan Dorward took the Winning Honours in both Senior Heats with close battling going on all through the field. 99B Jacob Buckrell got his First Ministock Win in the Bag in Heat one of the “Junior” Group while visiting Driver 211R Maghan Dorrell took a very close second and the Win in heat two. Ryan Dorward took away the Driver of the Night, Proudly Sponsored by the Milne Family.
Saloons – Tracey
Bit of a mixed bag for the Saloons on their Opening Night with a few mechanical issues for 92B Kevin Martin and a run in with the wall for 27B Josh Smith in the first race giving the back runners a chance to fight it out for second and third places, with a runaway win for 29B Steve Martin! The second race saw Josh Smith taking the win when Steve Martin also run into some mechanical issues. Definitely an awesome end to the night with the amazing Fireworks display! Have to say the best this speedway family member has seen in a while! Glad to see more bangs in the sky instead of on the track for the Saloons.

Side Cars
A Great Track for the Sidecars, Ten Outfits turned out to get their first look at this Season’s Track Surface, one we hope will carry through to the New Zealand Champs here at Meeanee in January. The Honors were shared around, only 21B Andrew McNamara / George Olsen managed to grab a couple of Wins out of Three of their Races. Entertainment a Plenty. Roll on next Meeting…
