Nyora had a huge crowd, champing at the bit for carnage and Captain Risky and the Demolition Derby fleet made sure that is exactly what they got. However some terrific racing also took place with the Wingless Sprint rounding out their series events for the season.
Wingless Sprints had two major events on the programme with the Ladies of the Dirt series round the first of the two. Former National Formula 500 champion Jessica Moulden came out on top of Pakenham woman Renae Eastham with Ebony Hobson from the Cranbourne area third then Samantha Millar and Bree Hall rounding out the top five.
A breakout night for Chris Temby who learnt his craft as a Speedway racer at Nyora back when the infield had a Speedway Kart track. He won the final round of the ML Automotive Nyora Nationals series for Wingless Sprints with Travis Millar who won the series finishing second on the night. Todd Hobson a great buddy of Temby’s finished third with Travis Evans from Bunyip next across the line ahead of Steve Loader.
Luke Fallon made a rare visit to Nyora Raceway and as one of the state’s best Sports Sedan racers who made sure of victory in their final. Jack Ramsdale from Pakenham, Lee Beach, Garfield racer Wayne Alberni and Scotty Smith.
Koo Wee Rup racer Rhys Lansdown was too good for Jack Yeomans in the Junior Standard Saloons. Kasey Ingram, Blake Smith and Deegan Benson rounded out the first five in that event and in the Speedway Sedans Australia Juniors for up to 1500cc race cars finished with a first ever feature win to Jayden Bryant who had in recent months been second at Nyora and Drouin before picking up this win over Zoe Young, Dillon Taylor, Logan Mair and Jessica O’Donnell.

Molly Johnson was third with Gemma Laidlaw and Kate Stuchbery rounding out the first five and in the Open Standard Saloon feature Mark Miles chalked up a win in front of Tracey Ingram, Shane Belk, Matt Reddecliffe and Neil Ingram.
Division Two Hot Rod racing results went the way of former Victorian champion Scotty Laidlaw winning from Peter Angus, Daniel Angus, Rob Tatterson and Dan Burke.
With entertainment from Pakenham’s secret resident Captain Risky leading up to the Demolition Derby and competitors such as Hudson Hornet and Batman unable to get the job done, Bevan Kemp became the latest Demolition Derby winner before fireworks sent the crowd home happy with proceedings.
