ORANGE’S Lachlan Onley will head into this weekend’s National Super Sedan Series (NSSS) trying to stay on top of the competition ladder.
Onley leads the field after three rounds with 1273 points, 18 points ahead of Queensland’s Matt Pascoe (1255).
The NSSS is run over 10 rounds across Australia this season.
The next rounds are at Dubbo’s Morris Park Speedway on Saturday and Goulburn Speedway on Sunday.
Onley, who is running a Matty Pascoe chassis, carries momentum heading to Dubbo, after winning the third round at Kingaroy last month by the closest margin in NSSS history.
Onley battled with Mick Nicola and Wayne Randall on a late re-start and they went three wide to the chequered flag in a tight finish.
The Orange driver is hoping for a fast track in Dubbo so he can try and extend his lead heading into Sunday’s round at Goulburn.
“I have never been to Goulburn” Onley said.
“The track has been widened recently and will produce some tight racing.”
Onley says he’s main rivals for the series are Queenslanders Matty Pascoe and Darren Kane.
Pascoe took the first round opening night honours at Toowoomba, while Onley had mechanical trouble with the number 17A Ford Mustang.
But Onley is grateful he has come out of the Queensland rounds as Queensland Cup champion and NSSS points leader
