Here We Come Bunbury

For the first time this season the thunder and lightning brigade will make their way down the highway to race at Quit Bunbury Speedway and with a leading nominations list of twenty cars, higher than any other division racing on the night, one can expect a huge show from the Late Models.

In what will be round three of the Maxima Oils Pro Dirt Series, the drivers will all be out to gain maximum points and attempt to close the gap on the current first place holder in the series, Bunbury local Brad Blake.

Blake has been right on song so far this season with two podium finishes and will be hopeful of grabbing the win in front of his home crowd this weekend.

He is trailed by just eight points in the series by Jamie Oldfield who himself has claimed a feature win already along with a fourth place. He will be a tough nut to crack and with the leading duo already holding a twenty four point gap over their nearest rivals so far, they will both be looking to extend out that lead as much as possible with a repeat of the one two finish from last meeting.

Michael Holmes and Warren Oldfield hold down third and fifth respectively and will be hoping to improve those positions after Saturday night, but with eight of the current top ten cars in the series nominated, they will certainly have a task ahead of them.

Names like David Nylander, Matt Goodlad, Veronica McCann and Hayden Norman will be just some of those hoping to turn their last start results around, while Kye Blight and Ryan Ludlow, who finished fifth and seventh in the most recent feature, will be some of the drivers looking to get that little bit extra from their machinery.

Jay Cardy finished third in the last show, albeit with a heavily damaged car, and this is something he will be wanting to change this time around to further boost his current fourth place in the standings, while Jason Bond was just outside the top ten finishers in the last show and will be hoping to break through that barrier come feature time this weekend.

Add in names like Jed Rogers and Chris Pavlovich who are having their first runs for the season, while Alec Melvin will be looking forward to just turning some laps in anger after a disappointing mechanical issue at the last round, and we have everything needed for a great show.

Be at Bunbury Speedway this Saturday night for what is sure to be another ground pounding night of action.
