Jonic And Harris Successful In Junior Speedweek Round
Ardie Jonic and Ryan Harris have won the twin Features on night two of the Junior Sedan Speedweek, held at the Fraser Shores Maryborough Speedway on Friday night.
Leading up to the twin Feature events, nine qualifying heats were held, such was the entry list, with Ellie Peacock, Mason Cameron, Hayden Brims and Jonic all winning heats in the opening round. James Ryan, Ryan Harris, Braith Hogan and Katelyn Storey were all successful in round two.
Jonic did not start on the front row for the opening Feature event, but was in front after the opening lap, and was effectively never headed. Jonic did have to survive a late stoppage, but he drove away in the concluding laps to record a good win. Casey OConnell who started on the third row, made his way to second with two laps to go while Mason Cameron finished third.
The second Feature would see Ryan Harris and Erik Wallace swap the lead through the opening laps, prior to Harris taking charge. Wallace then found himself with a challenge from Kasey Garlick who momentarily moved to second, before Wallace fought back. Garlick in-turn came under pressure from Braith Hogan who moved to third with six laps remaining, demoting Garlick to fourth.
The Junior Sedan Speedweek continues at Maryborough on Saturday night, prior to the fourth night Grand Final at Hi Tec Oils Speedway, Toowoomba on Sunday night.
Live Audio of Saturday nights racing is available from Speedway Sedans Australias website (Channel 2), with the first night of the Kurt Murdoch Classic for Production Sedans being the main event, attracting 45 entries. Racing will again commence at 4.00pm EST
