The Make Smoking History Collie Speedway once again proved why it is the ideal place to start the Ivix Industries South West Sedan Championship, as the event had about everything you could have in one night.

After it was done last night, there is still no clear standing on who will stand out driver who will come home with the Overall Championship.

Clint Hadley was the one driver who stood out the most, dethroning a field full of big names in the Street Stock Feature Race.

Starting on the front row with local Ethan Genev, the two drivers made contact on the opening lap as Genev tried to take control of the event.

The two though made contact, and though Genev did lead the opening four laps, the contact from the collision caused the left rear trye to deflate and Hadley to take the lead.

It didn’t just come easy for the Margret River driver after this, with Hayden Norman challenging Hadley for the rest of the event with Collie’s Paul Joss finding his way to the podium’s final step after a great threeway with Albany’s Trent Claybrook and Paul Bowman.

Kyle Sayer became the most winningest driver in the series’s short history, coming home with his sixth-round victory after running unchallenged all feature.

Starting off pole, it looked like a Sunday drive for Sayer, winning comfortably from Ayden Trewern and Josh Fraser.

While Sayer had it his way, it was a great brawl between the two drivers fighting for second and third, with the pair running side by side for most of the feature.

With their biggest field ever, Junior Sedans had their fair share of surprises, but it was Western Australian Jhy Pack who stood up and took control.

Like the rest of the winners, Pack took the win after starting on the front row, with Harrison Beres and Deagan McNally rounding out the podium.

The action was plenty all night long, with Wayne Thomson having a massive tumble in the opening heat race of the Street Stocks that tore the catch fence down and Brody Day hitting the concrete wall hard during the Junior Sedan A-Main.

The next series round will be held at the Trade Hire Augusta Margret River Speedway on November 20.
