After a frustrating night at the Premier Speedway due to persistent rain the A-Main for Night 2 of the 2018 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic has been postponed and will now be run at 4pm on Sunday prior to the complete Sunday night program. After an extensive rain delay following time trails the opening round of heats began well behind schedule and just as the cars began to form up for the A-main the rain returned. With the time already ticking past midnight the decision was made to postpone the final.
The night began with young American Parker Price-Miller and Darren Mollenoyux topping their flights in qualifying prior to the rain delay.
Once the rain cleared the 12 heats ran relatively incident free other than the red light coming on for Lawrance Kirkham, who hit the wall and rolled in turn four. The heat winners were Parker Price-Miller, Jason Johnson, Grant Anderson, Darren Mollenoyux, John Vogels, Luke Oldfield, Matthew Dumesny, Brendan Guerin, Carson Macedo, David McKay, Jock Goodyer and Brock Hallett.
The C-Main saw Ian Madsen, Dennis Jones, Darren Jensen and Grant Stansfield progress to the B-Main. The B-Main proved to be a race of survival with only 9 of the 20 starters crossing the line. The race was marred by a big accident between Brad Warren and Max Johnston who both rolled heavily along the front straight after contact as they battled for the lead.
Jock Goodyer was another driver to bring on the red lights after rolling in turn one.
In the end Jack Lee, Jordyn Brazier, Tim Van Ginneken and Daniel Sayre managed to take the four transfer spots available.
Below is the starting line-up for the Preliminary A-Main to be held at 4pm on Sunday afternoon:
Peter Doukas, John Vogels, Jason Johnson, Luke Oldfield, Grant Anderson, Steven Lines, Carson Macedo, Darren Mollenoyux, Parker Price-Miller, Brent Kratzmann, Danny Reidy , James McFadden, Lachlan McHugh, Brock Hallett, Matthew Dumesny, Cory Eliason, Daniel Pestka, Matt Egel, Aidan Hall, Sam Walsh, Jack Lee, Jordyn Brazier, Tim Van Ginneken, Daniel Sayre
