After being a runner up on three occasions, Matt Pascoe has won the New South Wales Super Sedan Title on Saturday night at Morris Park, Dubbo, continuing his stunning season, which has seen the Queensland based driver amass a staggering fourteen Feature Race wins.

Defending Champion and six times winner of the event, Darren Kane, would start on the front row, along side 2015 winner, Lachlan Onley, with Pascoe starting on the second row with Victorian Mick Nicola.

Kane would lead the first lap, before Onley took the lead, with positions remaining unchanged through the first eight laps, before Pascoe made his move, firstly passing Kane, before getting the better of Onley a lap later.

Kane and Onley would have a good battle for the minor placings behind Pascoe, with Kane taking second place again on lap fifteen.
Behind the lead trio, National Champion, Callum Harper, was making progress through the field, moving to fourth. With twelve laps remaining, Harper would move to third, as Pascoe opened a handy lead on the opposition, while Kane had also got clear of Onley.

In the concluding stages, Pascoe would pass fifth placed Mick Nicola, on his way to a 2.507 win over Kane, with Callum Harper third.
