Last Night (Friday 24th Feb) Kerry Madsen led all competitors on a merry dance in Night 1 of the WSS Grand Final round at Perth Motorplex.

The current Australian Champion showed how good a Sprintcar talent he is by obliterating the opposition and winning the 30 Lap Night 1 A-Main by  a staggering 3/4’s of a lap.

His nearest rival was Victorian Jamie Veal and then came local Perth driver Jason Kendrick in the total A-Main  field of 20 cars.

Not far behind was Jamie Veal (13.982), then came James McFadden (14.346), Chad Ely (14.369), Brooke Tatnell (14.378) and first local in the scorecard Trent Pigdon (14.416).

Kerry Madsen came 2nd and 3rd in his heats.

Total nomination count for the WSS round was 26 cars with 8 teams being non-locals.

Fancied Brooke Tatnell battled most of the night.

After winning Bunbury WSS the week before, Tatnell produced a mediocre set of qualifying coming in 5th in time trials and a 4th and 7th in heats.

Heats were a mixed affair and went the way of Taylor Milling, David Priolo, Daniel Harding x2, Jason Kendrick and Kye Scroop.

Harding started the meeting with mechanical issues and was unable to post a time trial, which essentially put the nail in his coffin for the night despite his great heat racing victories.

Harding battled through impressively in the A-Main to eventually cross the line in 12th. Had Harding posted some sort of time in qualifying, he may have been right up the pointy end with Madsen and co.

The final Championship deciding round of WSS will be run tonight at Perth Motorplex. Check out Torque Tube for the full report.
