Hat-trick of state titles for local wingless speedway racer

SPEEDWAY: Maryborough wingless sprint car champion Scott Thomsen completed a hat-trick of State titles on Sunday night.

Thomsen crossed the line first in the wingless sprints in a time of just over 18 minutes.

He led home Cody O'Connell and Tinana racer Dan Moes.

Maryborough Speedway president Wayne Moller was impressed with Thomsen's drive.

"He smashed the opposition,” Moller said.

"He sat behind Dan Moes for the first few laps, passed him and never looked back.

"He hasn't been racing a lot locally but he is always fast.”
