JK AHG SPRINTCAR CHAMPION

JK has finally done it!
After being so close on a number of occasions Jason Kendrick finally clinched his maiden AHG Sprintcar Series championship at Quit Bunbury Speedway on the recent long weekend. This is on the back of being runner up and being so close in previous seasons.
Heading into the final of the 2017-18 championship in a three-way tussle, the points were close but the feature race fell Jason’s way at the first night of the Krikke Boys Shootout. He started 11th in the feature and stomped his way through to second to bag more than enough points and win in devastating style.
“It was great for Jason to finally win the AHG Sprintcar Series,” said team boss Geoff Kendrick.
“It is something that Jason and the entire team has aimed for over the past few years but it has eluded us. He did a great job on the night, on the back of a great job all season. The whole team is to be congratulated and it is a great way to thank all our corporate partners and fans for all their wonderful support over the years.”
With the championship pressure over the second night of the Krikke Boys Shootout was an opportunity for Jason to race hard and chase another win. Unfortunately a clash with a rival in the two-lap knockout races saw Jason crash hard and the car destroyed. This denied him another start at the front for the feature race.
Now the attention turns to the Australian 360 Sprintcar Championship at the Perth Motorplex this Saturday and Sunday nights.
“We are looking forward to finishing the weekend on the podium and building on the top three we took in this event last year,” Geoff said.
The team went along to practice on Wednesday night and the car was bad-ass fast.
“I would like to make special mention of Peter Morris from Maxwill Engines who has supplied us with an engine for the weekend.
“Everyone in the team is pumped to put on a good show against another strong field.”
