Jones fights for the win
All Stars Media posted Monday March 25, 2019.
Driving his own SA63 an elated Ryan Jones won his 3rd Ross Wright Memorial at Murray Bridge Speedway Saturday night for RD 11 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series.
“Whether its 3 or 20 they are all just as special to me. I put a lot of pressure on myself and we were lucky enough to get away with it. The Wright family have done so much for me over my racing career and I have to win otherwise nothing else suffices. It’s been 2 ½ years since I ran the 360 and I was a little worried about that but the Bridge is home and it worked out.” Jones told us after the Presentations.
Darryl Wright lent Jones his old steel headed 360 to run the show which still proved strong. SA33 Mark Caruso led the early laps of the race before Jones slid him in Turn 3 and 4 but with a couple of yellows thrown in Jones had to work to keep the lead. SA44 Dan Evans, V34 Brenten Farrer and V29 Michael Tancredi were all on the heels of the leaders and fighting for the minors with Evans finally coming home in third, Tancredi 4th and Farrer in 5th.
The night started off well for the Caruso Family with Mark picking up a hat trick with the Oval Express Magazine’s Quick Time Award and making this his 5th for the season. Steven managed to get 2nd quick obviously feeling very comfortable with the 360 in place of his regular 410 engine. SA10 Steven Caruso locked himself into the Pole Shoot Out and started 6 in the A. Moving quickly up into P3 his night was ended when he got tangled up in a yellow and left him on the infield.
Farmer Phil Lock tangled with the concrete fence in Turn 4 and the fence won leaving Locky sitting on the infield without a front end. Young rookie Ben Morris whom has been running both 360 and 410s all season was another to pull infield with an ill handling car. Another Rookie to the Series James Aranyosi washed up to high in T1 mid race and collected the wall and was another to sit out the race on the infield.
“With the threat of rain all around us we got pretty nervous as it was spitting when we rolled out for the A but fortunately nothing eventuated and the light drizzle cleared and we managed to get it in. Unfortunately we had to drop our 4 wide salute to the Wright family but I am sure they would understand. With the SA Wingless Title on also both of us managed to get it done and still be finished before 10 for another fantastic night of racing. ” Searle tells us.
