The first night of action was simply excellent.
Twenty eight car put on a show, worked together to ensure the show ran smoothly and showed why Late Model Racing in Western Australia is going from strength to strength.
The exciting thing is, we get to do it all again tomorrow, for the final night of the Di Candilo Steel City Late Model Nationals!
Although not all cars will return, with some suffering some damage, there will still be a good field determined to put on a show and of course fight it out for the honour of winning the Late Model Nationals.
‘Mr Smooth’ Billy Moyer showed why he is one of the World’s best with an amazing run to claim the feature on Wednesday night, but fellow countryman Joe Godsey also put in an astounding performance to be leading the points after Night One after a second place finish. They were joined on the podium by Michael Holmes and as the first Australian home he was thrilled with his performance, but now all three have put that behind them and are focused on what lies ahead.
Others who had good runs included Ryan Halliday, Tyler Erb and Kye Blight, but they too are not content to rest on those results, keen for bigger and better things this Saturday night.
A whole host of other drivers will also be looking for a better run, with names like Warren and Jamie Oldfield, Jay Cardy and even Brad Blake not quite where they were hoping to be.
The good thing about Speedway is that anything can, and will, happen, so make sure you get your backside trackside this Saturday night and bring someone to hold onto! You may pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only be using the edge as the Late Models power their way round!
