Kyle Francis TQs & wins at WA State Titles

Kyle Francis TQs & wins at WA State Titles

The Western Australian State Titles were held over three days with Friday being controlled practice, Saturday qualifying and Sunday finals. A two hour rain delay after two rounds of qualifying saw the track conditions go from great to slippery slop and in the┬áNitro Truck class, after four out of five qualifiers on the Saturday, the TQ would be decided in the final qualifier. Up front the lead had already swapped several times during the race and at the beginning of the final lap Kyle Francis had the slimmest of margins, 0.001 of a second. A fast mistake free lap saw him take the win along with the TQ spot. Sunday’s 45 minute A-main then saw Kyle dominate, leading every lap of the final and in a first ran the whole race without getting marshalled once. So much was the dominance that by the 30 minute mark Kyle had lapped the entire field, including second. He went on to win by two laps with this being his second truggy win in consecutive years. Josh Pain came in second while Dale Smulders rounded out the top 3 result.
