Jake Smith Claims Avalon Pro Sprint Triple Crown Series Round
Author : SRA Media

Making his Pro Sprint debut Jake Smith promptly went out and won round 2 of the A Plus Powdercoating Triple Crown Series at Avalon Raceway, Lara finishing ahead of early race leader Michael Tancredi with Matthew Symons finishing a solid third.

Smith started the 25 lap final on pole position being the highest point scorer following qualifying and heat race points were tallied however had to chase down early pace setter Michael Tancredi in traffic before he would go onto a popular win.

It was the first time Smith has raced anything other than his trusty 410ci and he hit the ground running as he managed to negotiate the heavy traffic and a mid race stoppage before taking the chequered flag ahead of Tancredi. Attempting a last lap pass on the outside through the first corner, Tancredi would however finish in the runner up spot as he continued his love affair with the Diggers Cup at Avalon Raceway in April.

Symons was once again on the podium finishing in third place ahead of a fast finishing Jordy Rae who’s daring performance elevated him towards the front. As the night doubled as round 7 of the C&H Trucking Pro Sprint Series, Rae’s result further cemented his point lead with today’s final round at Simpson Speedway.

Fifth across the line was Paul Solomon while Andy Hibbert’s sixth place has enhanced his A Plus Powdercoating Triple Crown Series point lead following his victory in the opening round of the three round series within a series at Warrnambool.

Chris Solomon was next across the line in seventh while Brett Smith, Nigel Laity and Sam Wren would round out the top 10.

Shane Steenholdt would finish just outside of the top 10 in eleventh with Corey Sandow, David Aldersley, Jack Van Bremen and David McKay rounding out the finishers.

Both Dennis Jones and Brett Milburn were non finishers after coming together mid race in the mid part of the A-main.

Earlier Milburn impressively won the B-main to transfer to the final winning ahead of Steenholdt, Aldersley, Sandow, Van Bremen and Daniel Storer.

Heat race wins went to Paul Solomon, Michael Tancredi, Brett Smith, Ben Micallef, Shaun Lyness and Chris Solomon.

Quickest drivers in their respective qualifying groups were Jake Smith, Michael Tancredi and Jordy Rae.
