Can Luke land inaugural USC SA Sprintcar Points Championship?
Luke Dillon stands on the brink of creating history tomorrow night at Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway as he leads the inaugural USC SA point score.
The hard charging second generation racer clings to a narrow 20 point lead as the final round of the USC SA plays out.
It’s far from over however as realistically there are four different drivers who can stand up as the #1 USC SA driver in the game.
Some 66 different drivers have scored points across the various rounds held at Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway.
And now, with one round remaining, it’s Luke Dillon clinging to a narrow advantage over Matt Egel and Ryan Jones tied for second and Robbie Farr in fourth.
With a swag of interstate invaders adding some real spice to the event including living legend Max Dumesny making his USC SA debut and sons Matt and Marcus, plus fellow Sydneysiders Sammy Walsh, Damien Hart, Tasmanians Shaun Dobson and Tim Hutchins, Victorians Jamie Veal and Darren Mollenoyux plus a horde of South Aussies anxious to defend their territory it’s going to be a monumental battle.
Throw in the fact that it honours the memory of the legendary Ross Wright and there’s plenty to play for.
It’s the final Murray Bridge Sprintcar event for the season and the first round of The Chase as the teams head the following night to Premier Speedway Warrnambool for Round Two.
The top ten in USC SA points after each driver drops their worst round is:
Luke Dillon 438 Ryan Jones 424 Matt Egel 424 Robbie Farr 418 Steven Lines 402 Brad Keller 398 Aidan Hall 388 Hayden Pitt 374 Jake Tranter 374 Steven Caruso 370 Marcus Dumesny 370
