SWAN HILL SPEEDWAY
Press release from the All Star 360 that raced on Saturday night
Scotty gets the ‘Sonic flash’
The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series held RD 3 at Sonic Speedway Saturday night and SA75 Scott Bogucki’s Bartlett’s Auto Centre Cool claimed the A main win. In what is apparently a tradition at Sonic Speedway with the spectator banks filled with cars the occupants flash their headlights with approval for each feature A Main winner and quite an impressive site to watch. Bogucki took the lead in the dying stages of the race from V91 Liam Williams. Williams lead for 24 of the 30 laps but lap traffic and a couple of yellow lights gave Bogucki the opportunity he had been waiting for as he snatched the lead. ACT15 Harley Bishop was working up thru the field after starting in P9 and managed to pass SA71 Sam Putland for 3rd place on the last lap.
Bogucki & Williams obviously both happy after their battle together congratulating each other after post-race weigh in on the infield after the event. Putland was 4th and young Dion Bellman in the Hickman’s Tree Maintenance ACT40 5th. Bellman so excited with his run immediately asked “that was great, can we do it again?” V66 Wayne Logue was having a brilliant night running 5th until engine issues caused him to park on the infield. His Ford engine retiring itself for the evening.
Taking out the Oval Express Magazine Quick Time Award was Phil Lock with a 14.805 on the big half mile track. Farmer Phil’s excitement evident as he was interviewed immediately after.
Current series leader V83 Chris Solomon had a night he would prefer not to remember. After an incident between Solomon and Forrell, Solomon had to start from the rear of the A and couldn’t make much distance up thru the event.
“We have to thank all the Committee at Swan Hill for their effort under trying conditions with the heat. The track held together well, racing was great and tyre wear minimal.” Searle says.
