Lindsay McAuley has scored his second 2023/2024 Stevens Ceilings WA Modified Sedan Series round win in as many rounds, after claiming Round 3 of the series last night at Narrogin Speedway.

A field of nine drivers arrived in the pits ready for Round 3 of the 2023/2024 series, supported by local family owned and operated business, Stevens Ceilings. Mitchell Moody was unfortunately a withdrawal during the week, though this was made up with the inclusion of longtime Modified Sedan competitor, Clint Noakes, who returned to the series in the ex-Brenden Selleck Holden Commodore.

Lindsay McAuley started his night in the best possible way, winning the opening heat of the night, continuing his winning ways after claiming Round 2 of the series at Geraldton City Speedway in late October.

Anthony King would return to the series for the first time this season and would see the Narrogin venue continue as a happy hunting ground for him, by claiming the second heat from Clint Noakes and Lindsay McAuley.

King would continue his winning way by taking out the third and final heat race from a very consistent Lindsay McAuley and former WA Modified Sedan Champion, Branden Fraser, who also returned to the series for the first time this season. Unfortunately, Jamie Higgs would fail to make the call for the third heat race, as his night came to an early end with engine dramas seeing his Holden Commodore sidelined.

The Field Mining Services Group Shootout would be next on the schedule, with Lindsay McAuley defeating Clint Noakes to claim pole position for the feature race and the nice cash bonus.

As the green flag dropped for the final, it was Lindsay McAuley and Clint Noakes who would start from the front row and would race in close proximity with Shane Brittain for the first part of the race, as Branden Fraser and hometown hero Paul Stevens battled for fourth and fifth.

McAuley started to settle into the lead of the race, with Noakes and Brittain continuing their squabble for the last couple of spots on the podium, with Branden Fraser soon fighting his way into the battle for second after managing a pass on Stevens.

Brittain soon made his way through to second as Noakes ran slightly wide in turn two with Fraser also making a pass on Noakes a couple of laps later to make his way onto the podium.

Clint Noakes would then retire from the event, as Shane Brittain started to slow down the backstraight. Lindsay McAuley would extend his lead, as Branden Fraser and Paul Stevens now rounded out the final places on the podium, the positions they would finish the race as the checkered flag flew, with Kevin Ellement and Steve Beres rounding out the finishers.

The West Australian Modified Drivers Association would like to thank Narrogin Speedway Club for hosting Round 3 of the 2023/2024 Stevens Ceilings WA Modified Sedan Series, as well as our round sponsor, Stevens Ceilings for their ongoing support of Modified Sedan racing in WA.

The 2023/2024 Stevens Ceilings WA Modified Sedan Series will now move to Collie Speedway on Saturday, December 16 for Round 4 of the series in conjunction with the annual Christmas Cup event.
