The only summer storm at Powri Lismore was the Hunter Valley Hurricane

The only summer storm that threatened the Lismore Speedway and round three of the POWEi Speedcar Super Series was the Hunter valley Hurricane aka Adam Clarke.
A reduced field of 20 competitors arrived at the Lucas Ols Lismore Speedway as a result of the frightening storm experienced last week in Brisbane.

Clarke and the Jack Berry Racing  Polar Ice Team fired the warning shots early in the night by setting the quick time for the night over Nathan Smee and Michael Stewart.
Smee and Clarke headed the points tally going into the Feature, Smee 103 Pts to Clarke 101

.
The defending POWRi SSS Queenslander Brett Thomas started his night in the worst possible way with a flip during the hot lap session. The Illuminated Team repaired the race car but Thomas could not get back the lost momentum and did not figure in the final placings.Lismore has not been kind to Thomas during last January’s POWRi World Midget show Thomas suffer a terrible crash just past the pit entrance .

The two best Speedcar drivers is the country Smee and Clarke shared the front row as they rolled to the start. Smee on the pole, Clarke on the outside.
Right from the start this was looking like a 30 lap match race and the first part of the race certainly did not disappoint. Clarke was strong right across the groves and was holding back Smee’s attack. As the race developed Smee would start to fall off the pace depriving the crowd of a terrific finish, a slowly deflating right rear tire was the culprit. Smee held on long enough to finish 5th and still grab dome valuable POWRi point s.
With Smee his main challenger out of contention Clarke took the JBR Polar Ice #1 across the line a comfortable winner from Michael Stewart and young Queenslander Rusty Whittaker.

After conceding the Championship race to Brady Bacon before the start of the final race in the 2014 race calendar Bryan Clauson drove his TSR/Chev/Performance Beast race car to a wire to wire win beating Dave Darland and Brady Bacon across the line . Clauson won the race but Bacon took the Championship honors for 2014  by 56  points with Darland a further 13 points back in 3rd ..
The night started with Bacon holding a 60 point lead with 63 points available . Darland set the canyon Park Speedway alight with a blistering lap during qualifying to break Bryan Clauson’s track record set in 2012 .After the heats and the Feature lineup confirmed there was no way back for Clauson or Darland  and in true Championship style both Clauson and Darland raced as if their title chances were still alive . Darland was the big mover running from P8 to P2

.It was fitting that the three leading driver all year in the series finished the year on the podium . While the race win and the $5,000 were welcomed by Clauson and his team it must tough to see your Title slip away .

Brady Bacon and his Hoffman Race Team are the USAC/AMSOIL Champions for 2014 .This was Bacon’s first USAC Title and for Hoffman Racing their 10 USAC Title and 87th win since being founded in 1929

Driver quotes

Bryan Clauson . “I just love Canyon Speedway. We may not have won the war, but we won another battle. Tonight wasn’t nearly as easy as the box score will read. I was moving all over trying to find a way through traffic, knowing I had two guys behind me who are just waiting to pounce. I never knew how close they were, but I knew I was probably a sitting duck. I tried to mix it up when I could, but I felt really good in open track,” Clauson said.

Dave Darland : “I don’t know what would have happened, but I know my opportunities were better if we had stayed in traffic those last five laps. But we had a shot at it, and the track was racy and getting better as it went. Traffic put us in position to take second and have a shot at the win, too. I’m so proud of my team, and what we’ve been able to accomplish racing against the caliber of racers and teams out here. Its fun racing with those guys up there,” Darland said

. 2014 Champions Brady Bacon : “It’s a pretty cool feeling, especially doing it with a team like this. They know what they’re doing and take so much pressure off me. It’s nice to just show up and drive it, and know that it’s gonna be good. We didn’t have a DNF all year, and that’s a major contributor to the championship. They’re never satisfied, and neither am I. It was relieving to get it out of the way tonight before the feature, especially after the tumultuous night last night. It was fun to just be able to race for the win in the feature, and the top three in points finishing in the top three of the feature was cool. We had a couple shots tonight, but it just didn’t work out,” Bacon said

The Carling Muffler supported series would have had fans and race promoters disappointed with the entry list for this prestige event , 17 teams nominated for the round but only 16 faced the program start .

Todd Waddell set tongues waging early with his first up pace setting the quick time during qualifying .The Bennett Motorsports Toyota Eagle had set the mark but there more was to come During the heat races first South Australian Brock Hallet broke Steven Graham’s longstanding track record set back in 1998 then Todd Waddell lowered it further and the mark now stands at 14.117.

Rain during the show had forced the schedule to be changes with the pole shuffle being dropped. Heading the points as the teams moved to the line for the feature was Lee Redman from Mark brown and Brock Hallett . The feature started with rain in the offering and a damp track that started to get very hooky and would cause early cautions and together with mid race rain force the officials to declare the race with only 13 laps in the book .

Rain interrupted race are filled with both good and bad luck , depending just where you are at the time of the rain . Sydney’s Mark Brown was well on his way to breaking his terrible South Australian racing luck only to have his Spike /hawk started to misfire allowing his Bennett Motorsports teammate Waddell into the race lead .At this point mother nature took control forcing the declaration of the round 5 Carling Speedcar Pro Series .

At race end Todd Waddell had this to say
“”So many times in speedway, these drama filled races work against you, so on the rare occasion they go in your favour, you take it with both hands!” Waddell said as he celebrated, unfazed by the pouring rain as he exited the cockpit.
