Images compliments Gary Reid
Comeback King Adrian Maher used the high line to perfection in the 30 lap Sprintcar track championship round at Valvoline Raceway last Saturday 26th Oct. Maher, a driver with a
strong and impressive record at the metro west circuit, has been missing from local competition after parking is #10 car towards the end of last season.
The timing for a return was near perfect with Maher charging to the front of the pack with American Kody Kinser in hot pursuit. The longer the race went the harder Kinser worked the inside line until he found a way past Maher who appeared to catch him by surprise.
Almost at the same moment two cars touched which brought on the caution light and placed Maher back in front on the restart.
Veteran Max Dumesny, driving the Valvoline machine, stormed under Kinser to take over second while Kinser held on to third and Victorian Ryan Davis a solid fourth.
Maher flashed across the line to take the Valvoline trophy and thanked his sponsors Blackshaws Motor Body Repairs, A-One Charge Air Coolers, Total Care 4WD, Fleck Earthmoving and Valvoline.
Earlier in the night track curator Cameron Ware joined the upside down club with a gentle roll, followed by NT ace Troy David who made an impressive debut.
