THE season's single race meeting at Leeton's Brobenah Raceway didn't disappoint on Saturday, with Andrew White and Jacob Mills claiming top honours in the Super Sedan Long Track Classic.
With two blue-ribbon events and two support classes on the program, "action-packed" was the perfect way to describe the night. Mark Gordon joined White and Mills on the winner's list, doubling up with two feature-race victories in both VSC Open Sedans and GOSA Sedans.
Guaranteed to go to a new champion with last season's champion Callum Harper not in attendance, the Long Track Classic had White continue what has been a solid run of form recently, picking up podium results in both the NSW Title and the Super Sedan Rumble at Goulburn Speedway.
Qualifying in pole position for the 20-lap feature race by virtue of two heat-race wins, White was sure to make the most of his position at the drop of the green flag, immediately taking over the lead and, despite later pressure from second-placed Peter Nicola, leading from start to finish to clinch the win.
Lining up on the inside of the second row, Nicola was quick to pip front-row starter Neil Whitnish on the opening lap, but that didn't stop Whitnish from responding during the second of half of the distance, reclaiming second place on lap 13 only to lose it again on the final lap when Nicola executed a late-race pass for second place.
Wayne Aylett and Wayne Dick rounded out the remaining feature-race finishers, while one of the favourites - Lucas Roberts - was unable to start the feature race due to sustaining a broken steering rack in his second heat race.
Racing a Production Sedan around the massive Leeton track for the first time since winning the 2011 National Title at the venue at the age of 17, Mills delivered a dominant performance to win the Graham Bourke Memorial, crossing the finish line over three seconds clear of his nearest rival.
Runner-up was Stephen Laidlaw, followed by Leeton's Wayne Bourke, who was hoping to take top honours in his father's memorial race, but was forced to settle for third.
Remaining finishers included last season's Graham Bourke Memorial winner and another Leeton driver Justin Hawkins, Danny Harrison, Brett Norman, Justin Granger, Glen Corcoran, Raymond Ussher and Rodney Anderson.
In the VSC Open Sedans, it was Gordon who clinched what would later become the first of two feature-race wins, with Joel Copeland and Frank Gordon coming home in second and third place respectively.
Once again asserting his dominance, this time in GOSA Sedans, Mark Gordon made it a pair of victories, while Jamie Atkin and Dave Walton joined him on the podium.
The track thanked sponsors, volunteers and committee members who helped bring the meeting to life.
