After an action packed opening five rounds, we have seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows for the drivers.
Race leaders have wrecked, parts have failed, tempers have flared, and the celebrations have been second to none.
All of which shows no signs of stopping, which makes the final two rounds of the series so exciting.
The points battle is a grid-lock between current leader Brock Atkins who ignited an engine in Parramatta and had to commandeer his brother Todd’s car to retain control on 447 points.
Meanwhile 2018/19 series winner Kye Walters, Australia #1, 2020 Kings Royal Winner and current second place standings holder continues his late season charge toward the front sitting on 405 points.
Its a 3-car battle for the final spot on the podium with the ultra consistent Andrew Blackwell aboard the N7 who locks it down currently on 315 points.
The second team tightly contending the third place battle is Brody Chrystie in the AX32 who up until an engine problem resulting in missing round 5, was inside that top two battle. He seeks redemption with the problems amended on 305 points.
In his maiden VMPA season, Super Sedan pilot Brad Wicks has been making his appearance known from the very first outing. Driving his iconic Bendigo 17 colours, Wicks has given the Modified Sedan young guns a real run for their money, leaving nothing on the table on 297 points.
This Saturday night, February 22 will be when the round six of seven will go down. Hosted by Heartland Raceway Moama, which has played a huge part in some of the best Modified Sedan action to date. An ultra-racey surface that is full of passing, thrilling multi lane racing, and elbows up action.
The Tritech Lubricants VMPA will run alongside the feature Eureka Garages Sprintcar Series running at Heartland Raceway also, creating a blockbuster for fans who will fill the arena.
Can Kye Walters edge one step closer to going back-to-back series victories hot off his round 5 win? Or will Brock Atkins keep his head cool, lock down a solid points haul and maintain the series lead.
Along with 20 other hard charging peddlers, its anyone’s race for round 6 at Heartland.
This Saturday Night, February 22. Tritech Lubricants VMPA Series Round 6 at Heartland Raceway Moama.
