Last season Todd Bayley upspeced his Dirt Late Model and was on for a cracker of a year. Things went well in the opening few shows but unfortunately, he sustained serious engine damage that put him out the for the rest of that season.
Last Saturday night all his hard work came to fruition as his family run team fronted for the first NSW round of the Ultimate Speedway Championship.
Bayley timed 3rd fastest in his group in qually, Ran second in his first heat, Won his second heat and won the pole shuffle defeating Ex Aussie Champ Darren Kane.
Starting off pole in the A Main Bayley dominated for the first five laps. Kane made a bold move to take the lead. These two swapped positions numerous times in a thrilling race. Lap 22 Bayley hit the cushion on turn three hard. This did terminal damage to the race leaders’ car and he was forced to return to the pits.
“We may not have won but we put on a great show and our motor program is back on track” stated a deflated Bayley.
“Can’t wait till this Saturday night (26th October) to do it all again” he also went on to say.
