In their Return to Avalon this season, the TJ Chassis Formula 500 Stampede Series put on a show for fans. Fast paced side by side action and slidejobs a plenty from the formula 500 class.
Justin Bowen opened the gates, bringing the V33 into victory lane for Heat 1. Jett Speed showed he had it, when dominating heat 2 in the V14. The Australia 1 of Josh Buckingham, proved why he is the best when he took out Heat 3.
Tim Rankin brought the V47 home in 1st for heat 4 in a stout drive. Heat 5 was taken cleanly by the V4 of Jack Bell. The V95 of Dale Sinclair had it sewn to bits in the 6th and final heat of the night.
Matthew Balcombe, Leigh Van Ginneken, Shane Van Duynhoven and Declan Robinson were the top 4 transfers from the B Main.
After a hard fought feature race with a high and low line for the formula 500s, it was the V9 of Jordan Rae who took the win. Narrowly over Jack Bell and Tim Rankin. Josh Buckingham and Dale Sinclair completed the top five for the TJ Chassis Formula 500 Stampede Series at Avalon.
The Dutton Garage Victorian Speedcars converged on the Place for Pace for the second time this season. The series that always brings with it fierce competition and any number of favourites for the win.
Travis Mills finally found the form he’d been searching for at Avalon, getting the win in Heat 1. Joe Lostitch proved he was simply too good in heat 2, rocketing that car forward. Adam Wallis was stellar in heat 3, driving the V21 to heat glory. Justin McMinn just held out Lostitch for the win in heat 4, giving the fans 4 different heat race winners.
Travis Mills did everything he needed to, putting the Dutton Garage Mills Motorsport V10 in to Victory Lane for the A Main Win. Adam Wallis managed to put back Nick Parker in 3rd, Taylor Gore and Domain Ramsay made up the top five for the Dutton Garage Speedcars. In doing so, Travis Mills would win his 3rd Skip’s Race and head over to NZ to take on their best.
The much anticipated return of the V8 Dirt Modifieds was electric around the Avalon Raceway Clay. Heat 1 was taken out by Zeke Edwards. Todd Hobson was simply too good in heat 2, getting the heat win comfortably.
Todd Hobson would go on to be victorious in the Rocket Signs A Main. In doing so, becoming the only driver to podium in 2 different classes at Avalon this season. Zeke Edwards would hold off Daryl Hickson who threw everything but the kitchen sink at Edwards for second.
That would cap off what was an excellent night on a fast race track at Avalon Raceway.
