With just two weeks until the National Junior Sedan Title, and the final event at the venue to host the event, Erik Wallace has won the Junior Sedan Silver Crown at the Fraser Shores Maryborough Speedway on Sunday night.

Wallace would lead all twenty laps to record the win, with Casey OConnell coming from position four to chase Wallace all the way. Ryan Harris and Braith Hogan had a good battle for the minor placings, behind OConnell, with Mason Cameron, Kurtis Peall and National Champion Ardie Jonic engaged in a three way battle, behind the leading four drivers.

Wallace held a two car length lead for most of the race to win by 0.721, with OConnell a similar margin ahead of Harris and Hogan. Peall, Cameron and Jonic would literally cross the line together, with Mitchell Pammenter, Ashleigh Moller and Bailey Barnicoat rounding out the top ten.

Drivers will contest the Queensland Title this Saturday night at the Mothar Mountain Speedway, Gympie, before heading back to Maryborough for the National Title.
