Albany Speedway Club has completed its 2018-19 season with the final night of racing on Saturday featuring the open club championships and demolition derby.

The open club championships for all local divisions were contested with Ron Belfield a runaway victor in the production sedans.

The former State and national champion proved too strong for Jason Batchelor and Robert Wolfenden.

State champion Braiden Jewell won the club championship after a thrilling finish to the formula 125 final, edging out Bill Beeck by 0.134sec. on the line at the end of the 15-lap journey while Jacinta Tester was close behind in third place.

Tyler Fulcher and Paul Bowman had a terrific battle in the 15-lap SSS final, Fulcher winning by 0.283sec. with Paul Spink in third place.
