Katanning’s Jake Blight has tasted success in the 2021 Amazing Albany 5000 at Albany’s Attwell Park Speedway in Western Australia last night.
Blight put together twenty five faultless laps to defeat local Aydan Trewern and Victorian Champion Beau Riley.
A late restart allowed Trewern an opportunity to pressure Blight for victory, as the two Holden Commodore were never separated by more than a car length as the race came to a close.
Riley and former two time National Champion Ron Belfield in his popular Holden Torana also endured a tough battle for the final spot on the podium.
In the SSA Junior Sedan Madness event, Riley Hanson’s Hyundai Excel gave up within sight of the finish after leading for nineteen laps handing victory to local Jasmin Kennedy.
Carnarvon’s Damon Lyall will take some confidence into the AVEG SSA Street Stock State Title to be held in Albany in a fortnight’s time after dominating the twelve lap feature race.
