Jason Kendrick claims fourth AHG Sprintcar Series win :
SUNDAY JANUARY 26, 2014
IT WAS AS EASY AS ... 123 For JASON Kendrick took full advantage of a front row start to win the 20 lap sprintcar feature race from Kye "The Hot Foot" Scroop and "Marvelous" Mark Wells at the Perth Motorplex Speedway on Saturday night.
This was Kendrick’s fourth win of the season with the team shaking off much of the bad luck they endured early in the championship.
The hard luck story belonged to Callum Williamson and Trent Pigdon who were both in for a podium finish but came together as they tried to avoid a spinning car on lap eight and both had to restart from the rear.
They were locked in a great duel in the second half of the race but unfortunately it was for seventh and eighth.
Jake Beard-Miller, who was a late nomination, after scrapping his original plans to contest the 360 championship in Esperance, drove well for fourth with Troy Beckingham finishing his first feature race in a long time, claiming a well-deserved fifth.
“We have obviously got this car set up unreal and hopefully we can just keep this run going with all the big guys coming in from over the east,” Kendrick said.
“We have got an awesome team.”
Scroop was pretty impressed with the podium finish, suffering a wretched run in recent times.
“It’s been a real hard six weeks, we have not finished a race for six weeks and this is for all the boys,” Scroop said.
“Without them we just couldn’t do it.
“It was just good for us to get a finish and get rolling leading into World Series.”
Wells, who started from position eight in his new white car, finished strong for his third.
“Yeah we have gone back to a bit of old school,” Wells said.
“This car was supposed to be here in November but it got here a bit late.
“A lot of people like the white and a lot like the black, but I hate silver (this is Wells’ 25th season) so it had to be white.
“We were all doing the same speed but I had nothing for him (Scroop), I was virtually flat out.
“It was good to get some laps with the new car.”
