AHG (Automotive Holdings Group) has long been a Proud Supporter of Sprintcar Racing in Western Australia.

This year was no exception, with the AHG Sprintcar Series followed by the Mini “Blue Ribbon” AHG Triple Crown Series providing the best and most competitive racing the state of WA has ever seen.

The racing in the mainstream AHG championship was incredibly competitive with the series lead within grasp of many Drivers throughout the gruelling 6 month program.

Ex Queensland Racer Cameron Gessner who now calls WA home prevailed against a great spread of talent to take the coverted AHG Sprintcar Championship for season 2014/15, while Jason Kendrick in arguably one of his most consistent seasons took 2nd and David Priolo who showed that typical “true grit” took 3rd.

The unique AHG Triple Crown Series is a relatively new initiative to extend the WA Sprintcar Season after the mainstream Blue Ribbon AHG Series has concluded.

It is a great opportunity for Drivers to have another shot at stardom after perhaps and unlucky season or some indifferent results.

It came as no surprise that “in-form” Driver Jason Kendrick was going to be in the mix, indeed Jason managed to take the mini-series win from former Junior racer Carl Dowling (fabulous effort) and Jamie Maiolo (3rd).
