Australian champion Aidan Raymont leads the way after night one of the Australian Modified Sedan Title here at Attwell Park Speedway in Albany.
Raymont was brilliant in his three qualifying heats, blasting his way to victory and remaining undefeated ahead of the final night of competition.
The defending champion leads the point's standings with 108 points in his attempt to become only the fourth driver in history to win back-to-back national modified crowns.
Mark Carlin and Aydan Trewern were the other dominant drivers in the three rounds completed last night, the pair tied on 100 points with one round of qualifying heats remaining.
Carlin who won his maiden national title at this very venue, won the first heat of the title in stunning fashion as he came from position 10 to down fellow Victorian Martin Hawson by 0.036 seconds.
Trewern, an Albany local, was the best of the WA chances with two impressive heat race victories and a narrow second to fellow local member Laurie Dowsett in heat 9.
Interstate drivers Greg Worling (95 points) and Rodney Pammenter (92) round out the top five on points after the first 15 heats of the event.
The final 5 heats will be run tonight along with the C-main, B-main and A-main title decider while the marathon 50-lap final for Super Sedans will help decide the Bill Gibbings Memorial.
Racing starts at 6pm with gates open at 3pm this afternoon.
