JESSICA Moulden dominated the fourth and final round of the Intercity Signs Ladies of the Dirt series for Wingless Sprints at Nyora raceway recently.
Moulden in the Coastal Engines/Dromana Mowers #29 won both of her heats and then led local lass Ebony Hobson in her Lucas Oils/CTR Trucks #89 to the chequered flag in the main event.
Samantha Millar completed the podium in her Millar Motors/Bomb Disposals #93.
Hobson also took a heat win but the closest finish was reserved for another local favourite in Shona Bent who pushed Wayne Hurfords’ Bass Concreting/Victory Lane Racegear #73 to a heat win by just 0.03 seconds over Sandie Hickman’s Hickman’s Tree Maintenance #40.
In the Open event for Wingless Sprints it was Travis Millar in the #93 who took his second feature win of the weekend after also winning Saturday night’s event at Mid-Western Speedway.
Millar was grateful his sister hadn’t damaged the car in the earlier ladies events as he was able to score his third Nyora feature of the season, ahead of Ebony Hobson who was contesting both events and Ross Jarred in his Prism Powder Coaters #49.
Millar (2), Hobson and Warrick Taylor scored the Open heat wins.
Ray Klemm was the unlucky man who ended upside down in his Klemm Transport #92 receiving the Lucas Oils hard luck award.
The unlimited Sedans turned out to be a family affair with Wayne Alberni getting the upper hand on his son Jaydn Alberni in their pair of Farm Implements Commodores.
Wayne’s V8 engine version proved the difference over Jaydn’s six cylinder model with Travis Ramsdale only just being pushed back to third in his Plendrive #99 by half a car length.
Heat wins had gone to Ramsdale and Jaydn Alberni.
Standard Saloons saw an aggressive and exciting final with Travis Evans taking the chequered flag marginally ahead of Brad Hill who was given the victory by the stewards after Evans was put back a position for some on track indiscretions.
Bruce Bullard ran a clean race to complete the podium.
Mick Ardley and Evans had taken the heat wins.
In the VSC Junior division, it was Donald Young in his last drive in the category that took a clean sweep of heat and feature wins ahead of Ty ‘Toontown Terror’ Hutton and AJ Lawrence who finished with a virtually destroyed Commodore.
The 1200cc Juniors saw some brilliant racing between Ricky Cornwall and Courtney Meakins with Seth Bent completing the podium.
Cornwall and Meakins had taken one heat victory apiece but Kasey Garlick was the most spectacular rolling her Daihatsu Charade after hooking a rut.
Garlick was thankfully Ok but the car was done for the day.
The Vintage Super Modifieds and some not so Vintage Sprintcars also put on some very spirited demonstrations, especially Jason Andreatta in Mark Banks’ ex Bob Anderson Hot Rod who gave the wall a hit during his first spirited run.
The next meeting at Nyora is the season ending Bob Hickson Memorial/Southern 2000 for Unlimited Sedans on Sunday, June 28.
Also on the program will be Ladies Sedans, the amazing 1200cc Juniors and the equally impressive VSC juniors. On track action kicks off at 11am.
