Tonight at the Murray Machining & Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway a new event was staged with the inaugural Active Motor Wreckers 20/20AMCA Feature along with the Sedan Muster featuring Super Sedans, Late Models, Street Stocks, Modified Sedans and Junior Sedans. In the feature event of the night it was a clean sweep for Michael Sharpe and David Hartman as they dominated both 20 lap features to win overall.
Second overall went to Danny Prade and Steve Letts, who failed to finish the first segment but stormed home in the second 20 lapper to edge out Nicole Hill and Sprintcar drivers Scott Bogucki in what was clearly the performance of the night.
Other notable performers throughout the AMCA events were Bill Miller (Super Sedans), who finished fifth in leg one, Joel Chadwick (Wingless), second in leg one and Luke Dodding (Super Sedans) who stormed from the back to finish sixth overall.
Pre event favourites Ryan Alexander and Michael Millerailed to get past lap five of the opening 20 laps with car sustaining an engine failure while Miller was at the wheel.
The Super Sedans were also a standout with Luke Dodding capturing his maiden Feature win after starting from the third row and in the process he executed a number of impressive outside passes. Second across the line was Dave Gartner with Bill Miller completing the top three.
In the remaining sedan classes Stuart Hill made a last lap pass on an ailing Steve Vaughan to capture his first late Model Feature win, Rhys Heinrich was victorious in the Street Stocks, Tony hardy made a triumphant return to the dirt to defeat a small field of Modified Sedans while Cooper Grieg was the class of the Junior Sedan ranks.
The event also w a dose of open wheeled racing courtesy of the Formula 500’s and Wingless Sprints with Scott Dungey winning an entertaining F500 feature while Todd Wigzell won again in the Wingless Sprints.
Unfortunately several drivers entered the upside club with a number of multi car roll overs with Latisha Helyer and Victorian Tyler Beasey came to grief in the Formula’s while Lucy Evans and Cody Atkins has a big incident in the Wingless feature.

The 2012/13 South Australian speedway season began in fine style on Saturday night (October 6) at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway with good car counts and some tough hard racing, especially in the Formula 500 and Super Sedan ranks. On the night the two major winners in the featured classes were Bordertown’s Brad Tink and Michael Miller aboard his #36 Dominator.
Due to the large numbers in the F500 ranks the field was split into two groups with four entertaining heats going the way of Scott Dungey, who remained undefeated in the heats, Victorian Dylan Willsher and Tink.
As a result Dungey and Tink stated on the front row but it was Tink who was able to lead the entire 15 lap journey defeating Dungey and Angelo Karoussis. The feature also incorporated round 1 of the Speedway Australia South Australian Rookie Championship with Josh Michaelmore being the first rookie home ahead of Lisa Walker.
In the Super Sedans it was an all the way win for Michael Miller but he had to fight hard in the early stages to fend off rookie David Hartman. By the end of the 15 lap event Hartman had slid back to third behind Luke Dodding, who was driving the Anthony east #17.
The Wingless Sprints also put on a great show with some competitive racing but they were unable to stop Australian Champion Todd Wigzell as he defeated Joel Chadwick and Shannon Barry. Wigzell however had a moment with around 5 laps remaining as he made contact with rookie Renee Pestka sending her car spinning in turn four.
In the remaining categories Ryan Alexander “got out the broom” as he clean swept the AMCA races, Kooper Greig had a similar result in the Junior Sedans, Darren Brumfield survived an entertaining Street Stock feature to edge out Neville Nitschke while Brock Hallet and Todd Bennett were the class of the Speedcar Match Races.
A field of seven Sprintcars were also on hand to compete a series of hot laps with Brad Keller, mark Reuter, Luke Dillon, Justin Sloan, Darryl and Brendan Guerin and Brendan Quinn in attendance. Finally Laurie Rosenberg won the Demolition Derby in what was a fun way to end the opening night of the year.
The next meeting at the Murray Bridge Speedway will be on October 20 with the Bill Wigzell battle of the Bridge with the likes of Farr, Brazier, Dobson, Lines, Dillon, Young, Lacey, Bell, Pestka and Jones all set to compete.
