Jeff Montgomery, Aaron Cameron, George Jenson, Daryl Cahill and Jason Day all found their way to victory lane in Saturday’s season opener for the Richlock Rentals Wilroc non-winged sprint cars class at Western Speedway.
Duane Zeinstra and Dave Emmerson would lead the field to the green flag for 30 laps in the main event. Entering turn one, Tim Openshaw and Emmerson made contact, with Emmerson flying into Mike Haslam and both their cars were taken out of the race.
On the ensuing restart, Zeinstra inherited the lead before being passed by Montgomery on lap two. Montgomery would drive away from the field, leaving several racers to battle for second through to sixth.
At the end of the 30 action-packed laps, Jeff Montgomery crossed the finish line to start his 2017 season the same way as he ended his last, in victory lane.
James Miller finished a career-best second with Ryan Orchard, Jeff Bird and Zeinstra rounding out the top five.
This Saturday’s at Western is the Freedom Rent to Own Demo Night, featuring the Lordco demo series, bombers, mini figure 8’s, Loan Ranger Financial claimers and the Richlock Rentals Capital Drifters.
