With Allan Smallwood Jr
Howdy folks welcome to Smalle’s Weekly Wrap for the first one of December and what is technically the first week of summer.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Esperance on the weekend for the sixth annual Street Stock 20/20 Challenge where Jack Barnewall won for the fourth time with his co driver Aaron Murphy winning for the second occasion.
Already looking forward to the seventh running in 2018!
Jack Does It Again
Jack Barnewall won his fourth Street Stock 20/20 Challenge at McD Contracting Esperance Speedway on Saturday Night storming through the field in the final twenty lap stanza to win. Zane Humphrys and Kody Kelman were extremely consistent throughout the night finishing runner up from local brothers Todd & Sean Barrett. Nineteen cars were on hand for the event which continues to grow in statue every year with the Esperance Speedway Association already planning next year’s event.
World famous Freestyle Motorcross rider Josh Sheehan was extremely impressive in Speedway Sedan debut with plans already to get him behind the wheel again.
Dylan Parkes dominated the Junior Sedans winning every event on the night with Bronty Humphrys narrowly winning the Production Sedan feature over Sean Barrett and Steven Reeves.
Billy Wins Production Feature
Long time great southern competitor Bill Penn won the Production Sedan feature on Saturday afternoon at the Mount Barker Speedway.
Penn defeated Jacky Moroney and Ryan Penn in the main event with Chris Pavlovich winning the Super Sedan Feature over Kevin Bell and Wayne Coleman. 2016/2017 SSWA Driver of the Year Peter Herbert won the Street Stocks with Taj Coleman collecting the Juniors. The Mount Barker Speedway club will now have break over the Christmas/New Year period before resuming in mid January.
Matthew Thomson won the Junior Sedan feature race at Manjimup Speedway with Nick Brown winning in the Street Stocks at Narrogin. Richard Baker won another feature race at the Geraldton City Speedway in the Production Sedans with the two Junior features going to Bradley Short and Bradley Chant.
The Late Models return to the Perth Motorplex for Round Six of the XLI Pro Dirt Late Model Series with a field of twenty five cars entered. Kye Blight and current Western Australian champion Jamie Oldfield make their first appearances of the season and will be more than competitive. Blight is debuting a Longhorn Chassis which is similar to the one Ryan Halliday has used to win three main events already this summer.
Albany’s Attwell Park Speedway will host their first event of the season featuring the annual Noel Pearson Memorial for all classes.
The Bunbury Car Club is hosting the opening round of the 2017/2018 South West Junior Sedan Series with good fields of Street Stocks and Production Sedans on the program.
