The Junior Speedway Racing Associations 2017/2018 season of Junior Sedan speedway action is about kick off, with the first round of the JSRA Metropolitan Junior Sedan Series to take place this Saturday afternoon at Ellenbrook Speedway in the northern suburbs of Perth.

Two quality fields of Junior Sedan competitors have entered in both the New Star and Top Star divisions, with a number of drivers in contention for victory come final time on Saturday evening.

Jhy Pack, Beau Oldfield, Dean Schofield and Darryl George have all found themselves at the front of the field during the winter months this year and will once again be favourites coming into this weekends event. Matthew Thomson, Montana Pack and Jasmine Arnold have also shown that they have what it takes to be at the front of the field and will pose a serious challenge to their competitors at Ellenbrook on Saturday.

Kalgoorlies Kayne Dellar is a relative new comer to the sport of Speedway, following in his older brother Lachlans footsteps. Although new to the sport, Dellar has raced a number of times in the winter months and has shown that he will be provide quite the challenge as the season continues on.

In the Top Stars, Jackson Derrick comes into this weekend as the early favourite, having won all the feature races he has entered at Kellerberrin, Ellenbrook and Moora since the 2017/2018 speedway season began. Despite his results, Derrick will be up against some strong competition with Blake Iwanow and Blake Webb stepping into their Electronic Fuel Injected cars which will no doubt be at the front of the field on Saturday.

Lachlan Dellar, Corey Ameduri and Ethan Cooper can never be discounted in their Hyundai Excels, which will no doubt like the large Ellenbrook Speedway track and see them work towards the front of the field this weekend. Ameduri and Cooper will no doubt use their home track knowledge to their advantage to get the better of their compeition. Also looking to figure prominently will be JSRA regulars Bronty Fraser, Tanika Webb and Alex Swift, who return for yet another season in the ultra competitive JSRA series.
