The Geraldton City Speedway has wrapped up its second event of the season in a cloud of dust.

Visiting driver Luke Fraser won the modified sedan series round three event on November 27.

Fraser added the prize to his 2013 Australian Swift Racing champion title.

“What a meeting it was,” the speedway committee said.

“Some amazing racing demonstrated by all divisions over the night. The modified sedans definitely put on some awesome racing during the heat races, the kind of racing that’s got you sitting on the edge of your seat.

“Then, come feature time, it kicked up a notch.”

Fraser found himself battling for a top-three spot before spinning and having to go rear of the field for a restart, but started to pick off other cars and found himself back in the top three after a couple more restarts.

In what turned into a three-way battle for the lead, Fraser and Jayke Malcolm were both trying to pass Anthony King before Fraser made his move with just a few laps to go and held on.

Benny Curtin won the productions division, Darcy Auld won the senior Formula 125 class and Hailee Berry won the junior Formula 125s.

Emma Ahearn won the junior sedans, Daniel Guy super mods and Nathan Chant sprintcars.

The next meeting is on December 11 and nominations for junior sedans, Formula 125s, production sedans and limited sprintcars are open until midnight December 8.
