Worling worthy winner at Lismore Speedway
GREG WORLING took out the third round of the G and W Racing Modified Production Sedan Series at Lismore Speedway on Saturday night.
Rod Parmenter was runner-up and Darren Lester came third.
It was a race of high attrition. Only eight cars finished the event and with it went the usual hard luck stories.
Toowoomba's Peter Gray looked good early after starting from pole position. He showed a good turn of speed and looked a strong contender before an engine failure sent him to the infield.
Dennis Bullpitt also was impressive and ran strongly in fifth spot before he was sidelined with a broken axle. Another contender Matt Swarbrooke also fell by the wayside with a flat tyre.
But there were some impressive performances.
Parmenter's second placing came after a big drive, starting from 13th position, and Lester's third followed a Herculean effort after he started from the rear of the field.
Fourth man home was Gavin Fletcher, followed by NSW champion Steve Price. Mitchell Randell, Garry Maroske and Aiden Raymont were the only other finishers.
Other main event winners on the night were Roy Urpath (Formula 500s), Glenn Armstrong (four-cylinder sedans), Scott Quirk (street stocks) and Jimmy Knight (AMCAs).
Lismore Speedway next weekend will host one of the big shows of the season with a two-night Australia Day spectacular.
Highlights will be V8 Dirt Modified Masters, featuring the appearance of American champion Jimmy Phelps, and the Compact Speedcar Trans-Tasman Challenge.
