In what was the last show of 2020 at the Moora Speedway, Dale Cockman, Paul Rumbold and Olivia Earle were convincing winners in the feature races last night.
Earle was dominant throughout the night in SSA Junior Sedans, recording wins in both of the heats to start the feature from pole position. Despite pressure from Jimahli Nunn Mohammed Dom and Tylah Steele throughout the event, Earle was able to hold her cool and go on to record her first ever feature race win against a good nine car field.
After a slow start in the SSA Street Stocks, Paul Rumbold grabbed a thrilling win from heat one winner Clayton Blee in the second race, then would repeat his efforts in the fifteen lap feature race, leading every lap. Blee held down second for around half of the race before Sean Bowen made his way through, followed by Gavin Minty. Daniel Ameduri, racing for the first time against his daughter Stefani, was fourth, with Blee rounding out the top five.
The SSA Production Sedans saw a good field of fifteen cars on hand, many looking to get laps under their belt in preparation for the SSA Production Sedan WA State Title to be held at the venue later this season. Current Victorian champion Beau Riley made the journey from Collie for the event and claimed the opening heat win from Moora local and Club President Dale Cockman.
Cockman would then race away to claim the second heat race win ahead of Riley, seeing them tied on points and sharing the front row for the fifteen lap feature. Despite pressure from Riley the entire race, Cockman put in another strong performance to claim the feature win ahead of Riley, while veteran driver Terry Main came home third.
The next meeting for the Moora Speedway will be held on Saturday the 16th of January.
