PHOTOS: Kingaroy crowns king and queen of the track
AIDAN Raymont will line up at the modified sedan Australian title in April in Kingaroy with an advantage over his competitors.
He is the reigning king of Kingaroy speedway after taking out the 2019 Kings Royal on Sunday night.
After three days of racing Raymont scored poll position in the 50 lap A main feature race.
He was challenged during the race by one of his best mates, Western Australia driver Clint Noakes.
Noakes retired from the race with a mechanical in the closing laps and Raymont proved to be too strong to cross the line first.
"I had a perfect weekend from the start, everything that could go right did and that's what it takes to win a massive event like this," he said.
"That was the best part of the race, racing with one of my mates and it was unfortunate that he didn't finish."
Raymont has had his sights on the crown for a number of years but luck hasn't been on his side but this year the car held out just until he crossed the line.
"I broke something over the checkered flag and I wouldn't of been able to do another lap," he said.
It was a family affair on the kings royal podium with brothers Shane and Nathan McDonald finishing in second and third.
Brodie Boss finished in fourth place followed by Johnno Collins in fifth.
In the women's Queens Royal Maddi McGee defeated her opposition for the second year to continue her reign.
McGee started in poll position and despite a late challenge from Jessica O'Meara she maintained her lead to cross the line in first place in her brothers car.
"To win it back to back in a car that I have only driven once is pretty cool," she said.
"I was expecting it to be closer for the whole race but to see it was only close in the closing laps it was still really good to get the win, that's for sure.
"The fact that you are supporting females and nurturing the growth of females in the division is pretty cool and to run it in a meeting that is so big like the Kings Royal is awesome."
O'Meara finished in second place followed by Amy Evans in third.
