Another Avalon Sprintcar night and another fire

This time Grant Anderson had a fuel line issue that sprayed fuel around his feet and legs forcing him to the infield and out of the car with his fire resistive suit on fire.

Word has it he may not have been wearing suitable long john style undergarments making things worse

Well done to J Mac on beating Brooke Tatnell and to both of them playing the young bull/old bull game for the public to a tee

He didn't go to hospital. He has some deep burns on his calf but walked back to the pits.

...and IF he wasn't wearing his fireproof underwear, then he really should be taken away (if you get my drift).

If the drivers behave and get their arses out onto the track as each heat finishes you should be able to get through a nights events without even getting close to the curfew.

There's too much sitting around waiting for the cars to be ready and wheeled out of the pits.

I'll update the latest stuff I've been up to...

I did a bit of a highlights montage of a practice night from the infield, including when the poor young fella up ended his Sprintcar in his first time out.

Knoxville Night 1

Three of the five Australians nominated for opening night at the 52nd Goodyear Knoxville Nationals made it through to the preliminary A-Main, headed by Brooke Tatnell who finished the opening night encounter in sixth placing. Both he and Kerry Madsen are now locked into Saturday evening’s Championship night program.
After timing in 31st, Tatnell made it to the A-Main through victory in the opening heat. Sitting mid-pack for much of the feature, Tatnell through some shrewd manoeuvres along with attrition to befall other competitors was able to elevate himself to sixth at the drop of the chequers.
Joining him in the A-Main in a solid performance was emerging Sydney racer, Glen Saville. The former karting star avoided the B-Main, directly qualifying after finishing third in his heat. He was able to continue circulating throughout the feature to record a 16th placed finish. He will, however, have to race his way into Saturday night’s competition on Friday after finishing outside the top 16 cutoff.
Kerry Madsen had a solid run going before pulling in at half race distance. By virtue of his heat race win, he locked himself into the bottom half of the top 16 – right behind Tatnell – and is into Saturday night’s competition.
West Australian Trevor Reynolds performed exceptionally to make it into the B-Main, where he crossed the line in 18th position after qualifying 43rd among the 48 strong field, whilst Knoxville regular, Lynton Jeffrey was recorded 19th after timing 22nd.
The A-Main was won by 20-year-old Knoxville Nationals rookie, Kyle Larson – who has a development program position with Chip Ganassi Raing. The Georgia racer has been on a winning streak this week, taking out the non-winged $15,000 to win Ultimate Challenge A-Main at Oskaloosa on Tuesday night and many are tipping he could go on to surprise a few people come Saturday night.
Another youngster, in Davey Heskin was the early race leader and was fairly comfortable in front until the mid-race Safety Car, triggered by Mike Reinke pulling up in turn four. It was at this point where Kerry Madsen pulled infield and out of the race, whilst second placed Randy Hannagan’s engine endured a massive flameout, forcing the veteran to the work area.
Hannagan’s misfortune moved Jason Sides up to second and he didn’t need two invitations to slide past Heskin and take the lead. He looked certain to go on to claim the preliminary victory when his left rear tyre blew with six-and-a-half laps remaining and he rolled out of the race.
When the race resumed, it was Larson leading from Brian Paulus. Paulus triggered a yellow flag when he tagged the turn four wall coming in to receive the white flag, which led to a green-white-chequer finish.
In the end, Larson held on to add a win at the Knoxville Nationals to his Belleville Midget Nationals and Gold Cup Race of Champions trophies from Hesketh, whilst Donny Schatz finished third. Fourth home was Craig Dollansky who transferred from the B-Main and now heads the points and fifth was Lucas Wolfe.
“Getting a win at Knoxville is so big, but it is only prelim night,” said Larson. “It will be a lot better if we can win it on Saturday night, but it will be a whole lot tougher. I think we have a car good enough that we can get up front. It is so cool winning here at Knoxville. I grew up watching these races. This is my first Nationals. I have been racing Sprintcars for six years. I’m glad to be able to run here and I’m glad to be able to win here in my first try.”
The big news is the performance of 12 times Knoxville Nationals Champion, Steve Kinser. Kinser wasn’t able to make it out of the B-Main and is in danger of having to race for his life on Friday night just to try and make it directly into the A-Main come Saturday night. He sits well down the points order at the close of the first night.
Tomorrow, qualifying night two will be held. Officials will be hoping for clear weather conditions – a huge storm that swung through Knoxville just prior to hotlaps threatened the program and put it back by two hours. Australians, James McFadden, Ian Madsen, Jamie Veal and Domain Ramsay will get their first shot at Nationals competition for 2012.

Knoxville Night Two

The second qualifying night for the 52nd annual Goodyear Knoxville Nationals has been another great one for the Australian contingent, with Sydney-sider, Ian Madsen setting the quickest time in qualifying and then qualifying for the preliminary A-Main with compatriots James McFadden and Jamie Veal.
Despite hitting the track 15th of the 50 qualifying cars, the younger brother of World of Outlaws regular, Kerry Madsen blistered around the half-mile in 15.491 seconds, almost a tenth of a second quicker than fellow Knoxville Raceway regular, Brian Brown.
Veal was 29th quickest, McFadden 33rd in his first Nationals attempt, Marty Perovich timed in 43rd quickest with Domain Ramsay stopping the clocks 46th.
In the heats, Madsen slotted into the A-Main after finishing the first heat third, McFadden got through heat three in second placing, whilst Veal finished third in heat number four to line-up on the biggest stage possible. Ramsay would have to be content with a B-Main start after finishing eighth in his heat. His night ended in the B, finishing 17th.
Perovich failed to front for his heat race before going on to finish eighth in the C-Main.
Multi World of Outlaws Champion, Jason Meyers took the preliminary feature victory after assuming the lead mid-race after a strong battle with Mark Dobmeier.
Madsen was in the thick of the action, spinning during the course of the race only to be collected by Danny ‘The Dude’ Lasoski. After a visit to the work area, he was back into the fray.
There was a fantastic battle for second over the closing laps involving Dobmeier, Stevie Smith and Kraig Kinser – but it was 2010 Nationals Champion, Tim Shaffer who was the runner up with Kraig Kinser third, Smith in fourth and Dobmeier being relegated to sixth behind Lance DeWease.
McFadden was the best of the Aussies in 13th with Veal in 15th. Madsen wound up 16th in the end.
Ian Madsen is the only Australian that has – thus far – directly qualified for Saturday night’s $150,000 to win Championship A-Main.

Spent the night out at Hidden Valley's Northline speedway, they had Northline's 30th anniversary meet and the fields where a bit small but they put on one hell of a show with the feature race being a 15Lap Sprintcar event.

Top little circuit with excellent amenities(put some southern tracks to shame I reckon)and they had a pretty awesome fireworks display prior to the main events running. Great night.

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

There's been a lot of crap happening there and some pretty lousy shows.

The only problem I had with the place was that the commentator was pissing in the pocket of the Labor Governments Chief Minister and the local member at every given opportunity!!

NT Government puts in a fair bit by the sounds of it but this guy was completely over the top: surprisingly, the guvment heads didn't get booed?

Good litlle meet though, got the Speedway bug going again.

We have a pretty big modified production meet here next weekend - The Northern Nationals, I think they've called it which is a name from a long time ago.
I will head out for a look.
