The Boyes Motorsport team made it a night to remember, knocking off defending champion Murray Parsons Jnr, to claim his first AMCA Flyin' 40 at the McD Contracting Esperance Speedway on an eventful night of racing. The 40 Lap final began with Greg Horan and Sean Mazzuchelli on the front row with David Boyes and Murray Parsons Jnr lined-up in behind them in positions 3 and 4. Boyes however was too good for the rest of the field, while Horan would narrowly finish behind him in second. Parsons would again finish on the podium in third.

The Esperance Outdoor Power Equipment Street Stocks put on a fine show for the local crowd with plenty of heat on a fast track. However, a heavy crash in the final soured things for Linton Dickerson and Wade Rigney. The collision between the cars became very serious as the passenger in the #83, Shannon Miller, had to be attended to by paramedics. Thankfully, Shannon has been given the all clear! It's going to be a late few nights in the sheds for Rigney and Dickerson to rebuild their cars ahead of the Street Stock State Title in Collie in just a few weeks’ time.

Josh Macalpine continued his dominance in the #00 Ford Cortina finishing clear first on points for the J & N Dickerson Fabrication Productions. Tim Green and Reece Parton had a good night out as they tasted success with second and third place on points respectively.

Another strong field for the New Era Shearing Juniors division once again made for a great show of racing. Hayden Mortimer made a great start to his 2019 with a second consecutive night's win, backing up his top of the table finish from last meeting. The Brown brothers in Kaden and Logan made the use of great conditions as they cranked up the Charades to finish on the podium in second and third.

Zak Swann & Sheehan Varney made their presence felt in the Esperance Combined Tyres & Mechanical Burnouts Division, burning plenty of rubber to run away as the top point getters for the night. It was Swann who just edged out Varney for first place in the end as Shannon Anthony and Jake Cracknell were terrific all night as they finished in third place.
