Geraldton Sprintcar champion Callum Williamson clocked up plenty of kilometres over the weekend, pulling double duty across the Sprintcar Association of WA (SAWA) and Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series. Bunbury Speedway hosted the penultimate round of the SAWA series with Williamson holding a slender 25-point lead over Ryan Lancaster heading into the season’s final weekend. Williamson had a fast car winning his first heat but was involved in a multi-car crash in heat three which saw the team scramble to get the car repaired in time for the dash. Luckily the damage was minor and the team got the car turned around in time for the B Dash where Williamson was the class driver of the field taking the win by more than three seconds and starting the feature in the midfield. With a delayed start after Troy Lawson failed to start bringing out the red flag, Williamson made a quick getaway passing Lancaster and working his way up to third in the opening laps. From then on Williamson was locked in a battle with Tom Boujas for second but could not find a way through, with Mitchell Wormall taking the feature ahead of the pair with Lancaster in third. But there was drama after the race with Wormall’s car found to be underweight at the scales and was thus disqualified while Lancaster failed to report to the scales and was also disqualified. This bumped Williamson up to second and open a huge lead over Lancaster heading into the final round in Perth. Williamson just had to make sure he stayed out of trouble in the final race and did so by qualifying on the front row of the feature. There he led from start to finish in a commanding performance, finishing ahead of Lancaster in second and sealing the title. “It has been a great race season with the Midland Truck Sales Team and I can’t thank David and Katrina Graham for the awesome opportunity to jump behind the wheel of the #15,” Williamson said. “The team podiumed every feature but one, got the Australian #3 and finished with a Championship, thank you to both the Midland and Williamson crew, sponsors and race fans for the season.” Perth also hosted the penultimate round of the Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series with Williamson needing a strong result to have any chance of defending his crown. He qualified the fastest of anyone carrying over his good form from the SAWA events but come the heats the car would not start, leading the team to scramble to address the issue. With the help of other teams Williamson managed to get through the mid-pack dash and start 15th for the feature. With work to do Williamson charged through the field making his way to the back of Lancaster in seventh by the midway point of the race. Wormall retired with 11 laps to go moving Williamson up to sixth but he could not make any further moves in the closing laps. It was a strong drive but championship leader James Inglis finished in fourth to increase his lead over Williamson to 58 points heading into the final round. There are 150 points on offer in the final round, with Williamson needing to take all of them and hope Inglis finishes well down the order to have any chance of defending his title.
