From Perth Motorplex
Perth, AU — (January 25, 2014) — Jason Kendrick took full advantage of a front row start to win the 20 lap sprintcar feature race from Kye Scroop and Mark Wells at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday night.
The hard luck story belonged to Callum Williamson and Trent Pigdon who were both in for a podium finish but came together as they tried to avoid a spinning car on lap eight and both had to restart from the rear.
They were locked in a great duel in the second half of the race but unfortunately it was for seventh and eighth.
Jake Beard-Miller, who was a late nomination, after scrapping his original plans to contest the 360 championship in Esperance, drove well for fourth with Troy Beckingham finishing his first feature race in a long time, claiming a well-deserved fifth.
“We have obviously got this car set up unreal and hopefully we can just keep this run going with all the big guys coming in from over the east,” Kendrick said.
“We have got an awesome team.”
Scroop was pretty impressed with the podium finish, suffering a wretched run in recent times.
“It’s been a real hard six weeks, we have not finished a race for six weeks and this is for all the boys,” Scroop said.
“Without them we just couldn’t do it.
“It was just good for us to get a finish and get rolling leading into World Series.”
Wells, who started from position eight in his new white car, finished strong for his third.
“Yeah we have gone back to a bit of old school,” Wells said.
“This car was supposed to be here in November but it got here a bit late.
“A lot of people like the white and a lot like the black, but I hate silver (this is Wells’ 25th season) so it had to be white.
“We were all doing the same speed but I had nothing for him (Scroop), I was virtually flat out.
“It was good to get some laps with the new car.”
Dayne Kingshott proved to be the hotshot when the New Year Speedcar Derby was contested.
It was the third successive year that Kingshott has won the event, taking the win from Scott Glazebrook and Daniel Golding.
He started the win from the pole and never looked back.
“That’s great and just testament to this crew and the guys who have helped me out this week,” Kingshott said.
“The guys put in a huge effort.”
Kingshott also paid tribute to his sponsors who helped him get to the eastern states recently and ultimately win the Speedcar Pro Series.
“Also a big thanks to the Perth Motorplex too, that was an awesome racetrack tonight.”
Former national champion Neville Lance, who started on the front row with Kingshott, was out after six laps with motor problems.
