• Western Australian Speedcar Champion Dayne Kingshott bounced back from the disappointment of the night prior as he stormed to convincing victory on Easter Sunday at Adelaide Motorsport Park in front of a huge crowd to claim the Speedcar Stampede, which was presented by The Speedway Shop. After winning both of his preliminary heats, including setting a new 10 lap track record, Kingshott led the entire 25 lap race to defeat newly crowned South Australian Champion Nathan Smee and Michael Stewart, who announced it was probably his last drive in the Stephen Dillon owned #9.

    “The car in that feature race was on rails. The boys put in a huge effort tonight. We were really disappointed after last night and we wanted to make amends. The track in the final was really good and it was a lot of fun to race on” added the Bunbury resident on the podium.

    Fourth across the line was Victorian Nick Parker with regular Sprintcar racer Luke Bowey the best of the locals back in fifth. Victorian Andy Pearce, Ben Hall, Clint Leibhardt and Rory Jackermis rounded out the finishers.

    Earlier the heat winners included Kingshott (2), Smee and Stewart.

    The second of the feature events on the “Easter Thrillerama” program was Night 3 of the Easter Wingless Sprintcar Trail. Earlier in the weekend the series visited the Timmis Speedway on Friday, with Dale Gesell claiming the win, with Anthony Tapley winning night 2 at Renmark.

    Going into the Grand Final three were three drivers in contention for the overall series win and after claiming the A-Main it was New South Wales Champion Jason Bates who walked away the overall Easter Trail Champion.

    After finishing second in the 25 lap final Australian Champion Joel Chadwick did enough to secure second overall despite not winning a main event.

    Third place on the night went Dale Gesell, with Matthew Kennedy, Aaron Doe, Tapley, Victorian Clint McLaren, Mitchell O’Brien (NSW), Andrew Seery (NSW) and David Cuppleditch rounding out the top 10.

    In the remaining support categories Paul Hayes was victorious in the Street Stocks, Kooper Greig in the Junior Sedans and Jake Armstrong was a convincing winner in the AMCA Nationals.

    The Easter Thrillerama also featured a Demolition Derby to cap off the night with Andrew “Grinder” Grindley smashing his way to victory.

    The Grand Final of the inaugural Adelaide Motorsport Park season will take place next Saturday night with the running of the 2017 South Australian Late Model Championship and the Final of the MJS Street Stock Series.
