Bunbury, AU — (February 11, 2015) — Two-time ENZED World Series Sprintcars champion, James McFadden has broken an almost two year hoodoo by winning round 11 of the series at Quit Bunbury Speedway, while series leader Dave Murcott suffered a points thrashing after failing to finish both heats and claiming a very conservative thirteenth place in the final.

Jamie Veal claimed his second consecutive Revolution Racegear QuickTime cheque to start the night, while Steven Lines added a heat win and a third on top of qualifying 14th to cement his place on front row for the feature race, and claimed the pole spot by winning another Race Safety Equipment Gold Shootout to put Veal on his outside. McFadden started from third on the slick surface after promoting himself through the shootouts with Ryan Farrell on his outside, however the Bunbury Auto Group #26 had an engine change prior to the feature, and was pushed off but failed to fire, sending him infield before the grid was assembled. Kyle Hirst continued his nightmare end to the season, failing to finish despite starting fifth, and realistically ending his points chase for the series. Ian Madsen was another casualty while running second, opening the door for Lines and Brooke Tatnell to then claim third. Jamie Veal slotted into fourth while Jamie Maiolo claimed the hard charger honors after starting from thirteenth and finishing fifth. The World Series Sprintcars Facebook page has post race interviews with McFadden, and also with Brooke Tatnell who edged to within seventy points of the series lead. Murcott and Kyle Hirst also give insights on their heartbreaking nights. The series is put on hold for this weekend for the Australian Title at Bunbury, before getting set for a cracker Grand Final on February 21st.
