Jacob eyes third straight dirtriders victory



TANNUM Sands star Jacob Wright has his sights set on three straight wins when the Gladstone District Dirtriders Club hosts the final Orange to Ocean Interclub Series round at Benaraby tomorrow.

Wright has been in superb form so far, winning the two previous rounds held at Mundubbera and Yeppoon and is searching for a clean-sweep in the 85cc 9-11 years division on his home track.

Trying their hardest to stop the rampant Wright will be Moura's Brody Vivian and Blair Pearce.

Blackwater sensation Jake Gook is going to face a tough ask in the 85cc 12-15 years class, with Gladstone duo Hayden Brown and Scott Campbell keen for a hometown victory.

Campbell, the bridesmaid in the first two rounds is keen for a home-town victory, but won't get it his own way against the speedy Brown who already has one round win to his credit.

Another top Gladstone rider Daniel Boyce is riding high in the 65cc 10-12 years class and like Wright is on the lookout for a clean-sweep of round wins.

Judging by the form Boyce displayed at both Mundubbera and Yeppoon, he should do the business at home. Gladstone's Jack Greenough faces a big ask in the 50cc division against the well-named Yeppoon pair Storm Messer and Jake Edwards, while Mackay's Bailey Coxon is expected to win the 65cc 7-9 years class.

Meanwhile, the Junior Lites shootout between Scott Sears and Shannon King should prove to be very exciting.

Racing begins at the Benaraby track from 9am. Admission is $2 a person or $6 a car. Inquiries Julie Maeyke on 0428 452 645.
