Clark Takes Final Win in 1300 Stock Cars
Saturday 9th March at Lochgelly Raceway once more seen some fantastic stock car action on display. The tight nature of the Lochgelly Raceway always ensures that the racing is close, exciting and proves challenging for the drivers. Lots of overtaking, swapping of positions, hard hitting action and nail biting door to door action is a regular feature of the venue.

Without any visiting drivers, grids were healthy throughout the night, with a number of new drivers in some of the formula. In the 1300 Stock Cars, we seen Stuart Hall make his debut, taking to the track for the first time in his brand new race car, whilst Gary Nicholls, Michael Stewart, Charlie Henry and Samuel Douglas all made their first outings of the season. In the Ministox, Halle Wishard made her racing debut, whilst Stuart Shevill made his first appearance in the formula after graduating from the Ninja Karts. Jack Connor also made his first appearance of the season.

The ProStocks made their first appearance of the season, and it was a fantastic start for the formula. A formula that many had written off only a couple of seasons ago, is once more flourishing, with excellent racing witnessed on Saturday night. With things looking up for the class, we hope that numbers can continue to rise and that drivers can provide the sort of entertainment they displayed on Saturday, throughout the 2024 season here at Lochgelly Raceway. There were lots of excellently turned out cars, with Jamie Doyle, Hollie Richie, Robert Conway, Jamie George, Owen Bonner, and Becki Ritchie all standing out. A special mention to John Mason who enters his 35th season of racing, with another well-presented car. John Jackson, raced to a great win in the opening heat of the night for the formula having overcame Grady Ross in the closing stages of the race. The pair hard raced close for a number of laps beforehand but with Paul Barron closing, Jackson made his move and into the lead, holding Ross on the outside for the last lap or so. Ross found himself under attack from Paul Barron on the last lap, with a hit coming in forcing 694 car wide with Barron moving into 2nd. Former multi-champion Paul Barron finished 2nd behind Jackson, with the returning Grady Ross taking 3rd place. Lochgelly track champion Gavin Ritchie raced from the rear of the grid to finish in 4th having overcame Owen Bonner on the final lap of the race. Heat 2 seen another great race, with Grady Ross making some early moves to once more, move the front of the pack. Behind Grady though, there were some great battles, with Jamie George, John Jackson and Jamie Doyle battling for 2nd place for a large proportion of the race, and it was Jackson who broke clear of the duo, with Doyle dropping out of proceedings later. Jamie George drove well to finish just behind Paul Barron, who crossed the line in 3rd. Ross would see the win removed from him though, due to an infringement, which seen John Jackson move up to take his 2nd win of the night, with all other drivers also moving up a place. By the time the meeting final had came around, the track was now wet. Up front though, it was once more Grady Ross battling for the lead of the race, overcoming Owen Bonner early on after disposing of the 999 car on turn 3 and 4. Paul Barron had quickly moved up the grid and was soon up into the top 5 places in the first half of the race. With 5 laps remaining, Grady continued to lead the way with old foe Paul Barron chasing in 2nd place. The bumpers continued to go in further back, with Graeme Fleming and John Jackson tangling on the exit of turn 4, with Fleming forced into retirement on the infield as they battled for 3rd position. Grady would take the win ahead of Barron and Mark Boyle, with a few cars coming together on the last lap of the race. McIvor racing across the line in reverse come the end of things.. Just outside the points.

The ORCi Ministox raced in the first round of their 2024 JusBounce series, with the evening starting off with a whites and yellows race. All drivers that start the season as a white or yellow grade are eligible in the whites and yellows series throughout the season. Shevill had shown great pace in practice, though ran into issues throughout the night, resulted in DNF’s across the board for the youngster. The whites and yellows race would see Ollie Sime take the victory ahead of Shaun Boyle and Kevin Graham. The first main heat of the night was another excellent race, with both David Philp and Charlie Hardie racing neck and neck with each other for the best part of the race. Neither driver was able to shake the other off when they moved ahead, with the places swapping throughout the race. The pair couldn’t get involved in a tit for tat battle too much though, as they had Rhys Kelly sitting just behind, awaiting to pounce on any opportunity. On the final lap of the race, David Philp made a move for the lead of the race, moving onto the inside of the 7 Charlie Hardie car. Both cars went onto the back straight, side by side, with Hardie trying to muscle Philp out of contention, but Philp stuck in there with Hardie going sideways into the last corner, and Philp pushing him round. Meanwhile, Rhys Kelly was closing in once more, and the three drivers cross the line just a few car lengths apart – Philp would take the win ahead of Hardie, with Kelly just behind. Heat 2 seen a few cars fail to make it onto the now greasy track, with numbers dropping a little. Kevin Graham led the way early on in the race, with Rhys Anderson and David Philp sitting just behind. A race caution would be brough out following a coming together with Anderson and Declan Dixon, with Dixon stopped on the home straight. The yellow flag caution would bunch the pack together, and within a lap, Graham had lost his lead and dropped down into 4th position. Rhys Kelly took the lead of the race, with Dean Heep sand Charlie Hardie in 2nd and 3rd places respectively. Anderson, Philp and Graham meanwhile were battling closely for 4th position. Rhys Anderson soon found himself breaking clear of the others in the battle for 4th, and soon chased down Hardie ahead of him, with the pair running closely for the remainder of the race. Kelly would take the win ahead of Heeps and Hardie. The final race of the night seen the cars race on a wet track once more, and on the opening lap, Shevill spun to the infield and into retirement. Kevin Graham took a lead of the race ahead of Jack Connor and Rhys Anderson, with Shaun Boyle in close pursuit. Graham continued the form that he had shown in the wet last week opening up a healthy advantage. The battle for 2nd was soon a three way battle, with nothing between Connor, Anderson and Boyle. The trio battling allowed Hardie, Heeps, Philp and Kelly to close in and soon make it a 7 way battle for 2nd place. Bumpers would go in and Hardie moved into 3rd place behind Anderson, and ahead of Heeps, Philp, Connor and Boyle. Hardie and Anderson battled for 2nd for the remainder of the race, with Hardie coming out on top in that battle, with Anderson holding on for third ahead of Kelly, Heeps, Philp and Boyle. There would be no catching Kevin Graham up front though, who took another win for the season.

The National Hot Rods would see both Ethan Doull and James Robertson make their 2nd outings of their National Hot Rod careers. Gordon Alexander looked to have the bit between his teeth once the laps progressed, as he opened up a gap to fellow reds graded drivers, Ross McWilliam and Ian Donaldson behind him. Doull meanwhile, led the way ahead of Robertson and Darren Scott. Darren Scott looks to have found comfort in his new car, and is putting in some good performances, as he looks to become a top 5 driver. Just after halfway in the race, McWilliam had closed the gap to Alexander ahead, whilst Alexander battled with Robertson for 2nd place. Alexander would make the move on Robertson, with McWilliam taking full advantage of this as well, as he too made the move on Robertson in the same move. Doull would take the race victory, a couple of car lengths ahead of Alexander, with McWilliam just a few more car lengths behind. Heat 2 would see the cars take to the track on a dry track for the final time, with Doull once more leading the way in the early stages. James Robertson had made a better start on this occasion though, and soon found himself battling with Doull for the lead of the race. Doull would run wide and open up the door for Robertson to take full advantage, and into the leadoff the race. Ian Donaldson was the closest driver to Robertson up front, but with Alexander now in a clear track behind, soon put the foot down and closed the gap to Donaldson ahead of him. Donaldson wasn’t able to make any inroads into Robertson’s lead ahead, and soon seen himself drop behind Alexander and into 3rd. Alexander soon caught Robertson ahead, but with the laps running down, he was unable to put any serious pressure onto the 252 car ahead, with Robertson taking the victory just ahead of Alexander, with Donaldson completing the top 3. The meeting final had seen the heavens open, and Ethan Doull looked like a man possessed, as he stormed to a fantastic victory – over half a lap ahead of Alexander in 2nd place, and lapping every other driver in the process! Alexander took 2nd, with Darren Scott 320 finishing in 3rd.

The U-Pull-It 1300 Stock Cars were the final formula in action, with just under 25 cars taking to the track on the night. 6 white grades and 7 yellow graded drivers would mean that the blue and red graded drivers would have their work cut out to overcome many of the quick drivers up front. Stuart Hall soon found himself spinning in the opening laps and taking a bump over the kerbs. Samuel Douglas led the way, with Jake Wilson, Kai McNulty and Graham Campbell not too far behind. Charlie Henry, in the borrowed Chris Gold car, found herself pinballing around on the exit of turn 2, with cars hitting her all-ways. With the car seemingly stranded pointing the wrong way, a yellow flag was called for, which the race leader appeared to miss and continue racing, resulting in a DQ! Jake Wilson led the way from the restart, and controlled things from there on in. Behind him though, there was some fantastic action with McNulty in the thick of things. McNulty would find himself sideways on a number of occasions, but put in the bumper equally himself, spinning out National Points Champion Kyle Hegg around mid-way, with Hegg quickly rejoining. Danny Whyte, Blair Robertson and Craig Warner battled for 2nd place, with several cars just behind battling it out! Danny Whyte held on to take 2nd place behind runaway leader Wilson, with Fraser Clark managing to bring his car across the line in 3rd. Clark finished with Warner on his inside and Brant West on his back bumper with some excellent racing amongst them. Heat 2 had seen the rain start to fall with greasy track conditions. Once more though, this didn’t ‘dampen’ the racing, with some great action throughout. Wilson spun around Stuart Hall on the opening lap, with McNulty then putting the bumper into Wilson at the end of lap 1. Lap 2 would see Warner moved to the lead of the race, with Sammy Douglas, Wilson and McNulty trading blows. Graham Campell found himself as a passenger on the home straight, pushed sideways for the length of it, and into wall at the end. Warner meanwhile had opened up a healthy lead. Behind the leaders, a fantastic race ensued, with 12 cars racing hard, all on the home straight together. Sam Cavanagh found himself out wide with McNulty, Mike Courts and Fraser Clark pushing on. Sparks would fly as the cars clattered the wall on turns 3 and 4 in this fantastic battle. Bumpers would fly in, positions would be traded as the cars continued to dice for positions throughout the race. Warner would not be caught up front, with Gary Nicholls and Dany Whyte finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively come the end of the race. The meeting final once more, was another fantastic race. Stuart Hall took the lead on the opening lap, but was soon moved over as the pack came through. Kai McNulty took over the lead at the front of the pack. Jake Wilson, Craig Warner and Sammy Douglas followed through. A yellow flag for the stricken Graham Campbell car would see the pack closed up on the restart. Craig Warner, took a bit of a mid race mind blank, has he jumped the start well before green, that would result in a docking at the end. Dean Sievwright sat in 3rd place a few laps into the restart, but with Kyle Hegg, Fraser Clark, Kai McNulty and Darren Rae in close pursuit, it wouldn’t last long as the bumpers went in. Darren Rae and Kai McNulty came together, with Rae ending up spinning into turn 3. With 5 laps to go, Warner was out in front with Wilson sitting in 2nd, with Kyle Hegg in 3rd. Fraser Clark was just behind the 715 Kyle Hegg car, with a battle continuing for the minor places behind. Hegg would move the 42 car wide with just 1 lap to go, but this allowed 668 to close in, and the three cars with 42 a sandwich between, went into last corner of the race bumper to bumper. Hegg found himself pushed wide, with Clark taking full advantage, moving from 4th up to 2nd, crossing the line narrowly ahead of Hegg and Wilson. Warner would be demoted from the race win, with Fraser Clark taking the win by the narrowest of margins in the end.

We are back at Lochgelly Raceway this Saturday, with the 1600 Rookie Bangers, Classic Hot Rods, Superstox, CC Rods and Stock Rods all taking to the track, with a 5.45pm start time.
