Stratford - Saturday 29 January 2005
Memorial Night for Streetstox and Midgets

Report and pictures by Mike Pollard

Well I could have gone to Wellington for the finals of the Std Stox Team Champs, but I was all teamed out. Instead I went to Stratford to watch some racing! And I wasnt disappointed.The feature of the meeting was the Memorial night for both Streetstox and Midgets.

Midgets Heat 1

#1NZ Michael Kendall was quickly past #99S Eric Beardmore and quickly managed to put half a lap on the rest of the field. At this point Kendall eased back of the gas and simply cruised round for the win ahead of Beardmore and #9S Tony Kroff.

Midgets Heat 2

#6S Neville Thompson was first away just ahead of #42S Greg Jones. Kendall started at the rear of the grid, half a lap behind the rest of the field. 3 laps in and Kendall was up to 3rd as Jones moved in front. A lap later and Kendall was challenging for the lead. jones did a great job holding out kendall, but with 3 to go kendall stepped up a gear and moved to the front on his way to collecting the chequered again. 2nd was Jones ahead of Thompson.

Midgets Heat 3

This time it was Thompson, #24S Neil Willans and Jones who put daylight between themselves and the rest of the grid as Kendall decided to start this time 3/4 of a lap behind the rest! Jones showed good speed and quickly shot into the lead only to develop a misfire, and came coasting to a halt as the field swept by. This brought out the yellows, at which point it was Thompson ahead of Beardmore, #22S Jim Dodunski in 3rd with Kendall up to 4th. On the restart it was Dodonski who moved swiftly into the lead ahead of Thompson and Kendall. 2 laps later and Kendall shot past the
two leaders as if they were standing still. At the flag it was Kendall with a hat trick ahead of Dodunski and Thompson.

Streetstox Heat 1

#24S Andrew Dodunski was the first to show ahead of #6S John Young and #27S Paul Shodder. Shodder moved ahead of young before the reds came out for #28S Steve Lewis who was in a precarious position. On the green Young was swallowed up by the pack. Into lapped traffic, and a problem for the leader Dodunski who was pinned against the wall for a time by #78S Derek "Animal" Henderson, which allowed Shodder to take up the running to the chequered ahead of a recovered Dodonski with Young in 3rd.

Streetstox Heat 2

This time it was Shodder who was first away, ahead of Henderson and #58S Paul Blinkhorn. Both Henderson and Blinkhorn swapped positions a nuber of times before a red was shown to remove a dead car. On the restart Shodder moved further ahead for his 2nd win of the night with Blinkhorn confirming his 2nd spot ahead of Henderson finishing in 3rd.

Streetstox Heat3

Lewis was pinned against the wall in this one by #23S Harvey Edgecombe while young together with #18S Stuart Cadman and Andrew Dodunski lapped the track comfortably to finish in that order.

Run-off

After the points were tallied, there required a run-off for the title which was headed by #27S Paul Shodder and #24S Andrew Dodunski. It was no surprise to see Shodder move a few car lengths ahead early on, and try as he might
Dodunski just couldnt see enough daylight to be able to attempt the pass. The win going to Shodder.
