The “Kentucky Colonel” Steve Francis dominated the three rounds of the 2014 Moyle Engines USA Invasion Tour aboard his Ozmine Racing USA16 BWRC.
Francis hardly put a foot wrong over the three night series with team owner Michael Holmes rewarded for bringing one of the world’s best Dirt Late Model drivers to Western Australia.
The “O Show Brad Blake was the standout performer of the Western Australian drivers aboard his Bunbury Honda & Kia Mastersbilt with a fine second place at Manjimup and a third place finish at the opening round in Collie.
Inaugural Invasion Tour winner American Jeremy Payne returned to Western Australia for his second visit once again teaming up with Halliday Racing aboard their Colonial Freightlines USA186 GRT. Payne drove a brillant race at the opening round at Collie charging through the field to finish in second place.
Steve Casebolt from Richmond Indiana made his first down under to pilot the Peter MacPherson owned Toolmart USA33 Mastersbilt. Casebolt had a frustrating opening weekend of the Invasion Tour with mechanical woes preventing him from showing his potential. At Ellenbrook he drove like a man on a mission wheeling his car to a fine second place finish to Francis.
The surprise packet of the Invasion Tour was Jason Oldfield aboard his MDR Transport WA55. Oldfield put in polished performances at all three rounds and finished in fifth place in the overall standings. Jason Oldfield is also the President of the Ellenbrook Speedway and put in a huge amount of hours leading into the final at his home venue, despite he drove faultlessly throughout the race meeting.
Late Model Racing Western Australia are already in the early stages of planning for the 2015 Invasion Tour with a number of venues interested in securing a round of the series.
