Matty Pascoe has won the GP53 Graham Pascoe Memorial for Super Sedans at the Ausdec Patios, Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night, a fitting result for the National Champion, to win the race in honour of his father.
Pascoe did not just win the race, he romped in, winning by half a lap in the 53 lap A Main.
After a series of eight qualifying heats, a Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Shootout, it would be Daryl Moon and Kyall Fisher who would start the prestigious race on the front row, with the opening fifteen laps, seeing a multitude of passing moves through the field.
Daryl Moon would lead early, but would surrender the lead to Justin Randall on lap six, but it would be Pascoe charging though the field which captured everyones eye. Pascoe who started on the fifth row, moved to second on lap ten, and by lap fifteen, Pascoe had the lead.
Justin Randall drove a great race, and chased Pascoe hard in the middle stages followed by Tasmanian Steve Latham and Moon.
Lathams run was thwarted mid race, dropping to tenth, with Sean Black taking advantage of the situation, passing Matt Williams and Moon in one lap to move to third.
In the meantime, Pascoe was moving well clear of the field, and lapped traffic, as was the case in the National Title was no issue.
Randall and Black had a good battle for the minor placings, with Black getting the better of the exchange late, but Pascoe was at the opposite end of the track, winning the race by half a lap.
Behind Black and Randall, Ash Bergmeier would finish fourth after dropping as low as ninth, while Daryl Moon and Matt Williams completed the top six.
It was Pascoes ninth win of the season, and win number forty in the last six seasons, and a great way to complete the Brims Concrete Series for 2018/2019.
