Ryan stars in the Riverland
Media posted Monday February 17, 2020.
After a mid-week call from Scott Perrett
asking if he would like to run the car at
Waikerie Ryan Jones and the PFR team parked
the car in Victory Lane. “Every time we hit
the race track we showed improvement,
Michael made the right adjustments and by
the end of the night I think we had the
fastest car here and it showed.
can’t thank the track guys enough Chris
Evans and all those that chipped in, we
actually had a racy track, we had a couple
of groves to move around and I think it
showed there was some good speed and
everyone seemed pretty happy with it.” Jones
said as part of his post-race interview.
Last night’s RD 9 of the Mainline
DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series saw VA8
Dan Evans take out high points to line up in
P1 and SA33 Mr. Quick Time Mark Caruso
beside him in 2. V29 Michael Tancredi & SA98
Jones behind in 3 & 4. After a traditional
salute to the crowd Caruso took the lead
with Evans, Jones & Tancredi in line behind.
After only a few laps the yellows
were bought on by SA36 Clint Warner. At the
restart Tancredi’s engine expired not
allowing him to accelerate; behind him young
Ben Morris and Steven Caruso both pulled
wheel stands but avoided any carnage. Caruso
again led the start with Jones quickly up
into 2nd and a couple of laps later managed
to drive past Caruso for the lead.
Mid race a red was called so the Ambulance
could attend an incident in the pits,
fortunately it was not serious and the race
could get back under way after a short
delay. Jones lead comfortably the remainder
of laps but in the meantime SA95 Jarman
Dalitz was coming on strong after starting
in P8 and in the dying laps passed Caruso
for second. SA10 Steven Caruso finished in
4th and V16 James Wren taking out 5th.
With his first hit out with the series
this season young charger Ben Morris had a
strong result in the SA3 coming home in 6th.
SA42 Jamie Hendry was please to survive his
hoodoo track bring his care home safely for
7th. Darwin local Jamie McInness after
flying in on Friday for the show was
consistent finishing 8th. VA8 Dan Evans was
the last car home.
The series now has
a weekend of R&R to recoup, rebuild and
recharge for the final round being held at
Timmis Speedway, Mildura on 29th February.
