Gunnedah Speedway celebrated the week of speed with a blockbuster meeting on Saturday 16th March. With seven divisions of racing there was plenty of action for the big crowd.
The late model sedans made their first appearance of the year with Darryl Gimsom taking out the feature from Bruce McKenzie and the “young” rookie driver Graham Lillford. Talking of rookies a graduate of the junior driving program Jessica Cassidy excelled at her first meeting on a “walled track” coming home fourth in the feature. Jessica had earlier “won” a heat only to be disqualified for running on the inside of the cone at a restart.
The super sedans turned on their usual no holds barred racing. Brett Smith took out the feature from Wayne Dick and John Perkins. Bernie Roberts finished second however he was penalised two places for passing Wayne Dick on the infield. John Perkins had a return to form placing in two heats and beating the boss home in all four races.
The wingless sprintcars also made their season debut with honours being shared in the heats between Brian Briton, Jay Waugh and Brian Briton. The feature saw Mark Blyton taking the win from Geoffrey Piekar and Jay Waugh.
The street stockers featured the final round of the Pit Crew and EFI Spares Newcastle club championship. The heats were hotly contested with Aaron Barnes and Craig Henderson winning two each. The feature winner and new Newcastle club champion Aaron Barnes drove a superb race to take it out from a dogged Trent Keeler and Ross Morris.
In the benders Scott Riley took the win from Glen McArthur and Steve Brennan. The 4 cylinders went to Justin Partridge from Hutcho and James Rodd. Luke Whaler took out the juniors from Mark Layton and Blake Eveleigh.
