Tonight’s events for SSA Junior Sedans at the Perth Motorplex were quite simply dominated by the Buszan family.
The opening heat saw Jaxon Buszan claim the win while older brother Brandon was in third (split by a strong performance from Kaden Harrison in second) while in the second heat it was Brandon who took the win from Jaxon, setting up a Buszan front row for the ten lap feature event.
As the race went green Brandon jumped out ahead of Jaxon, while Kai Leeson would hold down third place.The first yellow light stoppage of the feature would be for Harrison who unfortunately spun down the back straight.
After a full restart Brandon again got out ahead of Jaxon and Leeson, but Leeson would bring out the yellow lights with two laps complete as he came to a stop in turn one and ended his race on the infield.
This would elevate Jesse James Samuels into third for the restart, with Jayden Haddon and Olivia Earle then passing Samuels the next lap.With seven laps complete the yellows would come out once again, with Izzak Delaporte and Ryan Mellor making contact, seeing Mellor up against the turn four wall and Delaporte relegated to the rear on the restart.
The two Buszan’s were close on the restart with Haddon in third after starting from position nine while behind him Samuels and Earle were continuing their battle.
In the end though it was Brandon who claimed the win from Jaxon, with Hadden third and Earle and Harrison rounding out the top five after Samuels came to a stop just shy of finishing the race.
Courtesy of the results, Brandon also grabbed the win in the Track Championship ahead of Jaxon, while Earle would be third overall in the series.
