It took just two race meetings back from illness for Bryan Mann to achieve what so few have been able to this season, racing to a feature race win to take out round 13 of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (March 23). In what was a superb spectacle, Manns win was perhaps overshadowed by a stunning run from Luke Oldfield that ultimately produced no result but drew boisterous approval from those fans fortunate enough to witness his heroics. In a race that delivered many memorable performances, previous round winner Lachlan McHugh charged from 13th to finish second ahead of Randy Morgan, Andrew Scheuerle and Brent Kratzmann.

Despite the fact that more than 50 drivers have taken part in the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship across 12 rounds so far this season, only five drivers have found their way to victory lane. It is remarkable that so few drivers have been able to deliver a feature-race winning performance and time is running out for those hoping to join this elite group with only four more rounds remaining, the first of which is this Saturday night (March 23). With 29 drivers converging on Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway for round 13, and 25 of these still desperate to finagle their first win of the year, expect a new level of intensity when the cars hit the track. Although Dirt Modifieds have been removed from the program due to a lack of nominations, there will still be plenty of supporting action courtesy of Compact Speedcars, Modlites, Formula 500 Juniors and Ford vs Holden vs Sigma sedans.
