Seven times State Champion, Craig Williams, has won the Derrick Dunn Memorial at the Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway, which was also round two of the Statewide Modified Sedan Series.

Current State Champion, Brad Herbert and Josh Stephens would start on the front row for the twenty lap decider, and it wasnt a good start for Stephens losing all of his water, ending his night.

Josh Marston lost his power steering early in the race also, as Herbert started to come under pressure from Williams and Trent Quillerat.

Jake Taurian moved to fifth but soon after would break a shock absorber, with Taurian joining Marston and Stephens on the infield.

The field would be bunched up on lap seven when John Moles broke his steering, causing a stoppage in the race.

Herbert, Williams and Quillerat were nose to tail after the stoppage, with Williams seizing on an opportunity with five laps remaining to hit the lead.

Further back, Nathan Russell and Jakobe Jetson had a good battle for the minor placings but they were a third of a lap behind the lead trio, with Williams winning by a car length from Herbert, with Quillerat two car lengths further back in third.
