Three Time Western Australian Super Sedan Champion Gary “Dusty” Higgs has claimed victory this afternoon at the Mount Barker Speedway in the annual Super Sedan Classic.
Higgs aboard his Marri Park Tavern Sweet went through the heat race competition undefeated before leading all twenty laps in the main event in the race meeting that doubled as Round Five of the 2021/2022 WA Super Sedan Summer Series.
Pleasant sunny weather greeted competitors at the daytime venue with the Super Sedans taking part in a street parade held in the main street of Mount Barker earlier in the day.
Adyme Harvey enjoyed a solid days racing to qualify on the front row with Higgs with state champion leading the early laps.
Harvey spun on lap two falling back to fourth with Ajay Hammer bringing on the yellow lights when she brought her Aylmore Motors Rocket to a stop on lap three after running inside the top five.
Kyle Larson & Adyme Harvey had a great battle for third for many laps with the Higgs beginning to work his way through the lap traffic by the halfway mark of the race.
Mount Barker Speedway Club President Tony St Jack brought his Insane Chassis to a stop in the middle of the back straight on with five laps remaining which would be second and final stoppage of the race.
Higgs would control the final laps to lead home Busselton’s Kevin Bell, Kyle Larson, Harvey with local Nathan Thiele rounding out the top five.
Super Sedan racing in Western Australia will now have a short break ahead of the 2nd annual Bert Vosbergen Memorial to be held at Attwell Park Speedway in Albany at Easter.
