2019 - MANJIMUP SPEEDWAY 50 YEARS ANNIVERSARY 30th November 2019
A big crowd was on hand to witness Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway's season opener for the 2019/2020 season which also doubled as there 50th Anniversary event.
Over 75 cars were in the pits for the event, and none of the racing disappointed as there werethrills, spills and triumphs throughout the day.
Adrian Geary from Perth was victorious in the second round of the Super Sedan Summer series, on a day that produced great racing from the division and a spectacular crash in the A Main.
After 6 qualifying heats, West Australian champion Chris Pavlovich and Kevin Bell would share the front row, while local driver Ryan Gunson and Geary would be on row two.
In a hectic and exciting opening few laps, it would be a drag race to the opening corner, with Chris Pavlovich and Kevin Bell running side by side into turn one, with Ryan Gunson and Zac Minshull also challenging.
Joined by Geary the race was set at a cracking pace through the opening laps, with nothing seperating the top five, with Geary moving back to forth on lap five at the expence of Minshull and with the lead cars running so close, a small mistake from Bell saw him drop from second to forth on lap six.
On lap seven Nathan Bell would get sideways exiting turn four, unfortunately at the same time as he was being lapped by Chris Pavlovich who held a slender advantage, bringing on the caution lights for just the second time for the day, Bell was unable to restart.
When racing resumed the charge would be back on in earnest, with Gunson challenging for the lead but he would spin, leaving Geary and Kevin Bell no where to go, Kyle Larson spun but hit the stranded Gunson with Craig Gilbert then hitting Larson heavily, Gunson, Bell, Larson and Gilbert would all be eliminated from the race, At the same time a coil wire had come off Chris Pavlovich's car, which would see the leader also excluded from the remaining laps.
Adam Geary then assumed control of the race, and had to survive some late challenges from Adyme Harvey and a very impressive Zac Minshull with Geary eventually winning by 1.856 seconds, Tony St Jack, Darren Larson and steve Larson would be the only other finishers from the bruising encounter.
A large field of Street Stocks were on hand for the event, gaining valuable track time before their State Title in January.
Damon Thomson from Collie and Margaret River's Clint Hadley would start off the front row, with Jason Batchelor and David Fall from row two and Whild coming from sixth.
The start was set at a frantic pace, with Hadley getting the advantage over Thomson at the start, only a few laps into the race, Thomson would hit a rut coming out of turn two and roll spectacularly, ultimately ending his race.
It wouldn't take long after the restart for Whild to move through the field and assume the lead and was never headed defeating Jason Batchelor by 0.8 of a second with David Fall placed third.
Top Star juniors saw Bryden Southwell take the win from Jonty Barnsby and Jye Pack in third.
New Star juniors saw Jarrod Pearce take the win from a fast finishing Alyvia Feraro and Harrison Beres in third.
Production Sedans saw Drew Ogle from Manjimup lead home Kyle Sayer and Ken Melvin in third.
Jamie Ward took the honours in the Super Mods, leading home Wayne Bingham and Cameron McElister in third.
