After hardly putting a foot wrong across the two nights of the Australian Late Model Championship, Kye Blight has raced away to record a dominating win and grab that Australia #1.

Across the weekend Blight set the quickest time in qualifying, won his opening heat, came third in his second and then led every lap of his preliminary feature to be high points at the end of night one. Returning for the second night he started from the back of the field in his heat which he raced through to win, then won two out of the three pole pursuit races to start the feature from pole position.

Blight would go on to lead every lap while behind him positions changed multiple times, but in the end it was Craig Vosbergen and Warren Oldfield who rounded out the podium once again, the same positions they both finished back in 2012/13.

Joe Godsey was the best of the Americans, running second for a number of laps before coming home in fourth while interstate visitor Ben Nicastri, in a borrowed and unfamiliar car, rounded out the top five.

They were followed by Michael Holmes, Ryan Halliday, Jamie Oldfield, Brad Blake and Veronica McCann who was on a charge from the B Main to come home and round out the top ten.

Congratulations to Kye and his team on a well deserved Championship win!
