Chloe Dellar and Darryl George have claimed Round One of the JSRA Country Super Series for their respective divisions at Moora Speedway last night.
Dellar dominated proceedings in the New Star division, going through the event undefeated, while her fellow drivers jostled for the minors places. Jade McKeagg started the night well, before mechanical dramas ended her night. Brock Lake, Matilda Hull and Deagan McNally; all in their first season of speedway racing, raced hard all night, though could not match the pace of Dellar.
With a quality field of Top Star drivers entered, the night promised some great racing and lived up to it’s expectation, with drivers racing two and three wide. Geraldton’s Ahryn Curtin began the night in the best possible fashion, winning the opening heat, while Darryl George would also claim his first heat win.
Bunbury’s Brandon Buszan would defeat a very quick Kurtis Blackburn to win the third heat of the night, before Beau Oldfield fought off his fellow racers, who through everything at him to win heat four.
The final round of heats, would see the night’s fifth different heat winner, demonstrating how even WA Junior Sedan racing can be, as Blake Webb defeated Rohan Thomas and sister, Tanika Webb. Darryl George would become the first multiple heat race winner, as he crossed the line to win the final heat of the night.
The twenty-lap feature would see Darryl George and Kurtis Blackburn start from the front row. George would hit the front from the outset and would endure a number of yellow light stoppages. Rory Elsum-Beaumont was the first retirement with a flat front right tyre, as Blake Webb started to look quick behind Kurtis Blackburn.
Further back in the field, Lachlan Dellar who suffered damage earlier in the night would begin his charge through the field, as younger brother Kayne would retire from the event.
The battle in front started to heat up, as Kurtis Blackburn and Blake Webb closed in on race leader, Darryl George. Blackburn would soon fall back through the field, as Beau Oldfield, Bryden Southwell and Brody Day battled for the minor positions.
With laps winding down, Darryl George would do enough to defeat Blake Webb and Brody Day to claim Round One of the JSRA Country Super Series.
Attention for the JSRA will now turn to Round Four of the JSRA Metropolitan Series, which heads to Avon Valley Speedway next weekend. The next JSRA Country Super Series will be the weekend after, at Geraldton City Speedway on Saturday December 8th.
