Blight Brilliance in Albany

Katanning’s Kye Blight showed his high side brilliance to take out Round nine of the Maxima Racing Oils Pro Dirt Series at Albany’s Attwell Park Speedway. Blight defeated Warren Oldfield and Lee Watt in a thrilling affair.

On a freshly surfaced race track that proved to be top dominate at the start of the night. Blight had the upper hand on points through the three qualifying events where he chose to start off the outside front row where he was joined by Jamie Oldfield, but it was Oldfield who was able to get the jump and lead the opening four laps until trouble struck and he slowed onto the infield, handing the lead to Blight who was holding on for grim death as Brad Blake and Marc Giancola.

David Nylander would spin in turn two which would bring the yellows on lap six. From the restart Lee Watt and Warren Oldfield who started out of positon six and eight started to creep up the field and by lap 15 Oldfield and Watt had moved into second and third.

Blake and Giancola continued to slip back in the field as Matt Goodlad clawed his way into fourth place as Hayden Norman pulled to the infield with mechanical dramas.

Blight though had no match, as even through lapped traffic had the upper hand on his competitors charging his way to take his second ever Maxima Racing Oils Pro Dirt Series win.

With the short turn-around for Late Model Drivers Attention quickly turns to next weekend’s round at the Perth Motorplex for the DiCandilo Steel City ‘Show us Your Steel’ Late Model Topless event.
