A WARRNAMBOOL-based speedster and a West Australian youngster departed Premier Speedway in the thick of celebrations after a class-packed Saturday night of racing.
Nirranda footballer Luke Weel defeated Glenn Watts and Luke Storer to emerge victorious in round five of the Wingless Sprint Super Series.
West Australian driver Mitch Glynn, meanwhile, emerged with the prestigious Neville Pike Cup.
Premier Speedway general manager David Mills said the club was proud to see another south-west driver – in Luke Weel – having success.
“We’ve got a great local contingent. They mightn’t necessarily be members down here, but they could be at Laang, or Simpson,” he said.
“We’ve got that core group of guys pushing in the upper echelon of sprintcars right through to junior drivers doing well.
“The south-west has been a hotbed for great junior motorsport for years.”
