Current Speedweek Champion Jock Goodyer was once again at his best on Night 2 of the Clay-Per-View Sprintcar Speedweek at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway as he dominated the 35-lap finale to take home his second $10,000 Speedweek winners’ cheque. Alon g with winning the final he also topped his qualifying group and won his heat, with Goodyer’s only blemish on what was almost a perfect night was a second placed finish in the dash to Classic Champion Brock Hallett. 

“As I said last night it’s just a great way to start a tough week. The track was completely different to last night. I felt really felt comfortable up there on the cushion. I could tell someone was down there, I found out later it was Aaron (Reutzel), as the dirt was being thrown up into the groove, but you can never tell if it’s a car for position or just the lapped cars. Murray Bridge has been good to us of late but now we are off to Mount Gambier to see what we can do” commented Jock after the feature event. 

After a solid opening night Texan Aaron Reutzel showed the sizeable mid-week crowd why he considered to be one of the best American drivers with a stunning performance as he finished second after a hectic battle with Matt Egel, Jordyn Charge and Lachlan McHugh. 

“The track tonight was awesome. To be honest it was one of the best tracks I have been to for a while. I really hope I can come back at some point and run here again. The track crew and the entire team deserve a lot of credit. Let’s hope we can take this form down the road to contest for another win” added Reutzel as they packed up the car. 

For the second night in a row the podium was completed by a local with Matt Egel bouncing back from a bruising crash on night 1 to finish third, which was a great reward for his team who put a brand-new car together overnight. 

Fourth place went to impressive youngster Jordyn Charge, who initially wasn’t even on the entry list. After a dominant win in B-main 2, Texan Chase Randall charged to a top five result getting the better of Lachlan McHugh late. Behind McHugh, pole sitter Brock Hallett picked up the Max Dumesny Motorsport / Hoosier Lucky 7 while Ryan Jones, Luke Dillon and Jessie Attard completed the top 10. 

The A-Main saw the red light come on for a lap 4 incident when Chad Ely and Glen Sutherland tangled on the back straight with Sutherland riding out a big crash that ended in turn three. 

Earlier the heat races produced some of the best Sprintcar racing seen a Murray Bridge for several years. Local racer Terry Pitt, Brock Hallett, Jock Goodyer and Jackson Delamont were the heat winners while Hallett, Lachlan McHugh, Jock Goodyer and Luke Dillon topped their qualifying groups. 

The heat races saw two major incidents with Steven Caruso rolling hard on the front straight after contact with Glen Sutherland in heat 2 while Luke Dillon crashed in turn three of the final heat. 

Birthday Boy Daniel Pestka, Jackson Delamont and Marcus Dumesny transferred out of B-Main 1 while Chase Randall, Keke Falland and Lachlan McDonough made the A-main via B-Main 2.
