Bunbury’s Brad Maiolo dominated round one of the USA vs. WA Sprintcar Speedweek series at Perth Motorplex. 

The LJM Racing star took out the feature race on December 26, beating out second-placed Parker Price-Miller and Jamie Maiolo. 

Brad Maiolo had raced to victory in heat two, crossing ahead of Price-Miller and fellow American racer Mark Dobmeier. 

The race was declared on lap 22, after AJ Nash was involved in a crash that saw him slam into the exit gate. 

Once again, Jason Kendrick claimed the fastest time in the Victory 1 Performance Quick Time session.

The Boxing Day meeting marked round six of the 2018/19 Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series. 

On December 27, drivers descended upon Collie Motorplex for round two of the USA vs. WA competition. 

Kaiden Manders led from start to finish in the feature race, finishing ahead of Brad Maiolo and Ben Ellement.

Dobmeier placed fourth after beginning the feature race in seventh.

Kendrick made it two Victory 1 Performance Quick Time wins from two, delivering a 14.128-second lap. 

The driver then took out the feature race in round three at Perth Motorplex. 

Kendrick claimed victory with a blistering 30-lap run, crossing ahead of Brad Maiolo and Northern Territory driver Chace Karpenko. 

The event served as part of the Merger Contracting Sprintcar Muster and round eight of the Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series.

Teams hit Bunbury Speedway for the fourth and final round of the USA vs WA series on New Year’s Day. 

Kendrick won the feature race, with Dobmeier and Price-Miller finishing second and third respectively. 

Claiming his second feature race in a row, Kendrick overtook Brad Maiolo on points to clinch the USA vs. WA Sprintcar Speedweek title.

Krikke Motorsport driver Kerry Madsen sits second on points following a gruelling five-round Speedweek Series stretch.
