Less than a week since their last show, the flying Formula 500’s will be back in action again this Friday night as they enjoy the extra coverage that supporting World Series Sprintcars brings. The event will be the first time the Formula’s have run at the Motorplex this year, their last show at the venue back in December 2019, and will also be the fifth round of the Perth Motorplex Track Championship. Another good field of fifteen cars has nominated for this weekend, with a number of drivers similar to the Bunbury field that competed last Saturday, with just a couple of changes. Last start winner Matt Brown will be looking to make it two in a row after his success in Bunbury last weekend, and with his raw speed should be one of the favourites this Friday night. Chris Dymock and Brendon Marshman rounded out the podium last weekend and would love to improve on those results again, Dymock in particular looking to peg back the twenty eight point difference between himself and Glenn Carstairs in the Track Championship points score. Carstairs will be back in the field on Friday night and with two wins, a second place and a an eighth from the four rounds held so far has certainly been the model of consistency so far as he looks to claim his second Track Championship. Cody Turacchio sits third overall in the Championship and after a strong night last weekend with two heat wins and a victory in the pole shuffle before a disappointing result in the feature race, he will be keen to bounce back and grab another victory for season 2019/20. Mother and son team Amy and Nash Waldron impressed at Bunbury last weekend, Amy passing a number of cars in the feature to make the most of playing her Ace Card while Nash, who was in his first meeting since stepping up from the Junior division also put in a great showing and matched it with some of the more experienced competitors. Both will be racing at the Motorplex this weekend and come in full of confidence, which will only help them on the wide open spaces of the Motorplex track. Todd Broadwood and Mark House are two exciting additions to the field this weekend. Both are feature race winners at the Motorplex venue so know what it takes to run up the front and with a little bit of luck could be real contenders come feature time. Jamie Nardini will be running solo this weekend as brother Luke is away, which will only see him pull further in front in the Track Championship standings where he currently runs fourth. It is only a relatively small gap to third place in the Championship so he too will be looking to bank some solid points. Jeff Ross and Troy Samwell were both in the field last weekend, with Ross coming home eighth while Samwell pulled infield in the dying stages. Now with some more laps under their belts, both can be expected to record some even better results this time out. David Carstairs and Damien Della are the other two additions to this weekend’s field and will be keen to record some good results in what is sure to be another exciting program. Friday Night is Speedway Night!
