Solid Night for Reidy

By Daniel Powell

Although Danny Reidy would’ve liked to had left last Saturday night’s latest round of the Sydney Speedway Sprintcar Track Championship with a podium result, he was still pleased overall with his performance.

The NT # 5 Desert Palms Resort – Alice Springs supported J&J driver was challenging for second place on the final lap before losing momentum and finishing in fourth place at the fall of the chequered flag.

“I had a go at Robbie Farr for second on the final lap, but I was chopped off and lost all my momentum,” explained Reidy, “Due to losing that momentum it allowed Ben Atkinson to get a run on the outside, and he took third place from me.”

Reidy’s night was overall strong after he was able to benefit from a late pill draw in time trials to record the third fastest lap. Starting from position six in his heat race, he moved forward to finish in third. These results qualified Reidy out of position three in the feature race field.

The next scheduled event for Reidy is going to be the three night Tri-City Shootout this coming the Easter Long Weekend. It begins on Friday night (April 6) at Maryborough Speedway (Maryborough, QLD); followed by Saturday night (April 7) at Archerfield Speedway (Brisbane, QLD); and the final round at Charlton Raceway (Toowoomba, QLD) on Sunday night (April 8).
