Esperance Speedway event

DANIEL Keen started from position two, alongside former Esperance local Steven Ford, and from early on dominated the ninth round of the 360 Power Series at Esperance Speedway on Saturday night.

The Bunbury-based Keen went on to win the 25-lap final from his younger brother Michael, with Kalgoorlie's Ray Leonard taking third.

Jamie Landrigan, who lives in Port Hedland, was fourth, from Darren Mewett, Ben Butcher, Cory Gilpin, Jacob Potts and Steve Adley.

Ford started from pole position after narrowly-defeating Daniel Keen in the pole dash.

Unfortunately he spun out early and went to the rear of the pack before heading infield.

There was contact early between Landrigan and Butcher that saw the latter dive to the middle of the track before rejoining at the other end of the circuit.

Potts and Troy Lawson came together a short time later that put Lawson out of the event while Potts was able to resume.

Shaun Bradford, who won the round in Kalgoorlie the night before, started from position three, and was forced to spin to avoid a spinning car.

He raced back through the pack and then tagged the fence when challenging for second, putting him out after putting 18 laps in the book.

Ford won the first heat race of the night from Michael Keen, Leonard, Bradford, Cory Gilpin and Casey Johannson.

The second heat went to Lawson from Darren Mewett, Daniel Keen, Landrigan and Potts, with Butcher crashing out.

Heat three went to Bradford from Landrigan, Ford, Mewett, Gilpin and Adley, while the final heat went to Daniel Keen from Butcher, Leonard, Michael Ken, Lawson, Johansson and Potts.
