Ellement was under pressure from Mark House and George Eaton who both kept within touch of Ellement throughout the 20 lap A Main. All eyes were on Glen Carstairs the winner of the first round.

Carstairs started well back in the feature and worked hard to make his way forward amongst some strong opposition.

When it looked like he would move into second place he nearly came to grief with a lapped car not once but twice and lost valuable ground.

Somehow Carstairs recovered and went on to finish second behind Ellement. Carstairs remains on top of the West Coast Series after round two at Collie.

Mick Hamon won the Thomson's Auto Parts Collie Street Stock championship with a start to finish win.

A restart with about five laps remaining allowed Paul Briggs to stay with Hamon to the finish.

Wayne Thomson of Bunbury was not far back in third place followed by Josh Martinelli and Josh Davies.

The Street Stock night was not without drama however as in heat race two, Ethan Genev took a ride on the wild side when his car was tagged on the back end as he entered turn three resulting in a wild roll over destroying the car.

Genev was able to get out of the car without injury.

Top Star Junior Sedans again only had a small field of cars with Seth Hinsey having control.

Mitchell Baker stayed close to Hinsey throughout the racing and managed to win heat three. The final race came to a stop midway through when Erin Fraser rolled her car coming into the front straight.

Fraser was able to climb out of her car unaided and with the car back on its wheels it was able to be pushed back to the infield.

Erin has since indicated that both she and the car are OK and had there been another race on the night she would have been able to take part.

Deagan McNally won the New Star Junior final but was under a lot of pressure from Alyvia Ferarro throughout the heat races with Ferarro taking two wins.

Kai Leeson finished third in each of the four races while Vince Lindsay finished in fourth,

Junior numbers a expected to grow at the next meeting with their Collie Championship up for grabs. Already WA1 Blake Iwanow has nominated for his first meeting at Collie for this season.

More drivers are expected to nominate as just two race meetings are left before the Moyle Engines and Race Parts SSA National Junior Sedan Title comes to Collie.

December 7 will see a full program with Super Mods, Wingless Sprints, Junior Collie Championship, Street Stock and Production Sedans all listed to race.

As normal the gates will open at 4-30pm and the first race will happen at 6-00pm
