NEXT MEETING: January 5/6 - Super Sedan State Title, Limited Sprintcars feature, local divisions

Musarra and Potts claim opening round victories in weather affected meeting

Rick Musarra and Jacob Potts were deemed the official round 1 winners of the Southern Production Sedan Series and Junior Sedan Racing Association Country Super Series at Albany's second meeting of the 2015-16 season.

Amid lightning strikes and rain showers the second meeting of the Albany Speedway Club season was held on Saturday night, which had more than its fair share of drama.

Attwell Park Speedway played host to the opening round of the Junior Sedan Racing Association Country Super Series along with the first round of the Southern Production Sedan Series.

In the top star division of the junior sedans a terrific battle between Jacob Potts and Jayke Malcolm developed in the 20-lap feature race before a yellow light stoppage brought proceedings to a halt on lap 14.

With the lightning getting worse and rain rapidly approaching stewards declared the race but there was controversy surrounding who was officially the winner as Potts and Malcolm traded places for the lead in the lap when the stoppage occurred.

The computer lap scoring system had Potts in the lead of the race at the last completed lap, handing him the win from Malcolm with Hayden Thomas third and Jake Avins in fourth place.

The new stars junior sedan final was won by Blake Fletcher from Izak Davies and Luke Malcolm.

The production sedan final took place after the declared junior event and was only four laps old when Nathan Penn was spun in front of the majority of the field, causing a multi-car crash involving Kane McDiarmid and Frank Does.

Does was taken to hospital but later released however as they tried to get the race re-started the lightning got to a dangerous stage and then a heavy shower forced stewards to declare the race a non-event and end the meeting.

Rick Musarra was declared the winner of the opening round from Penn and WA champion Mick Hamon.
