The opening round of the Ellenbrook versus Moora Challenge got underway last night at the Ellenbrook Speedway, with drivers from both clubs competing across the Street Stocks, Production Sedans and Junior Sedans for points.
In the Street Stocks it was James Westerman coming from pole position alongside Ryan Penfold, but with battled three and four wide behind them it was surprise package Matthew Iwanow who came from position eight to grab the lead.
After an early race restart Penfold was spat out from the field, while Westerman moved through for second alongside Ben Norman before the two came together and spun. The field would restart with Iwanow going on to record the win over Norman and Penfold.
The Production Sedans took a few goes to get underway with Jake Blight leading Josh Fraser, Wayne Leviston and fellow front row starter Rick Musarra. With one complete Blight was forced infield with heavy smoke coming from the engine, which handed Fraser the lead.
Despite significant challenges, Fraser was able to hold on and claim the win from Musarra and a hard charging Jayden McCuish.
Courtesy of the nights results, preliminary points have Ellenbrook drivers leading the series, with the second round to be held at Moora on the 26th of October 2019.
