Anderson Dose it Again with Another Eureka Series Win
Author : Ian Vale

With nearly all the elements that mother nature could throw at you Avalon Raceway persevered on Saturday night to get round two of 2019-2020 Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series run and won in an action packed show that eventually saw Eureka Series round one winner Grant Anderson back up his round one win from last week to take his second straight round win of the Series.

The heat race action was worth the price of admission by itself with so much passing and hard racing that had the drivers using all the track from the top to the bottom with some outstanding drives mainly in the second round of heats form the likes of Peter Doukas, David Murcott, Grant Anderson and Corey McCullagh who all came from the back of the heats to take wins.

David Murcott topped the points table after the time trials and heat races were run and won that would see him joined by Grant Anderson, Charles Hunter, Bobby Daly, Tim Van Ginneken and Peter Doukas in the two pole shootouts for the Eureka Garages & Sheds A main event that also double as the Fireball Derby on the night.

So The A Main field was now set that had Grant Anderson in pole position after setting the best time in the shootouts, David Murcott would line up along Anderson on the front row followed by Peter Doukas, Tim Van Ginneken, Bobby Daly, Charles Hunter, Rhys Baxter, Mike Van Bremen, Brett Milburn, Chris Solomon, Corey McCullagh, Tim Hutchins and the top six drivers from the B Main that was won by Eddie Lumbar from Jordyn Charge, Tate Frost, Dennis Jones, Terry Rankin and Mark Carlin.

Eureka Garages & Sheds A Main time and the field rolled around to take the green flag only for the caution lights to come before a lap was completed. Well it nearly became a marathon the get the race underway with five attempts punctuated with drivers spinning before a lap could be completed. Although the attempted starts were interest with both Anderson and Murcott taking in turns to win the starts, two to Anderson and three to Murcott.

Finally the race was under way and Murcott had the lead but Anderson was right on his tail tank, as the field settled down Daly quickly moved past Van Ginneken to take up third place before the caution lights were on once more after Carlin spun leaving Lumbar with nowhere to go but over after contact was made.

Take six and Murcott was off holding a slight lead over Anderson with Daly, Van Ginneken and Jones who had moved up thru the field from his sixteenth starting position to catch and quickly make the pass on Van Ginneken over Milburn and another fast mover Frost who also came from deep in the pack.

Half race distance and the action was happening throughout the field but Anderson
Was sitting right with Murcott to find a way past, the traffic was getting a little heavy for the leading pair but not for long when Van Ginneken’s machine came to halt bringing on the caution lights once more. With clean air Anderson was off on the restart to open a small gap back to Murcott. Daly was doing a great job holding down third place but it was Milburn who was mixing it up with Jones, McCullagh and Frost for fourth place. As the laps wound down Murcott was not out of the hunt yet but as the old saying goes catching Anderson was one thing and passing was another, meanwhile Daly was still holding a strong third place while Millburn continued to hold off a snarling pack but as the laps were nearly run Frost was still charging to take both Jones and Hutchins in the final couple of laps.

Up front Grant Anderson was driving where ever he wanted on the track to go on and take his second straight Eureka Garages & Sheds Series feature win in a row from a close finishing David Murcott while Bobby Daly came home in third place from Brett Milburn, Corey McCullagh and Tate Frost. Rounding out the finishers Dennis Jones, Tim Hutchins, Chris Solomon, Rhys Baxter, Jordyn Charge, Mike Van Bremen and Terry Rankin.

With so many good drives within the Eureka Garages & Sheds A Main if there were a man of the match it would have to go to Tate frost, Tate came from the last transfer spot in the C Main to the rear of the B main event then drove thru the B Main to transfer to the all important A Main where he went on to finish with a very creditable six place.

The B Main event was won by Eddie Lumbar from Jordyn Charge, Tate Frost, Dennis Jones, Terry Rankin and Mark Carlin who transferred to the A Main event.

Brenten Farrer took the win in the C Main from Grant Stansfield, Michael Tancredi and Tate Frost to go to the B Main.

Heat races on the night were won by Bobby Daly, Charles Hunter, Corey McCullagh, and Peter Doukas while both David Murcott and Grant Anderson took two wins each.
