The race, formerly known as the RDA 100, has been run at the speedway since 1976.

This year’s event attracted 43 WA drivers as well as three interstate drivers ” Brad McClure, Anthony Beare and Justin Brumfield.

After a lengthy break from racing and only one competitive drive prior to this year’s event, Ameduri returned to Ellenbrook with the hope of repeating his successes in 2012. He cruised to victory in his opening heat by close to half a lap.

After the day’s 12 heat races were completed, a 20-lap feature with 24 contestants was run to decide this year’s trophy winner.

There were numerous battles throughout the race before Ameduri emerged victorious.

‘I’m so happy that we went back- to-back this year,’ Ameduri said.

‘I knew McClure was coming and we raced side by side for a number of laps but I managed to withstand the pressure, maintaining the lead. You have to have a lot of luck on your side to win this event and I’m delighted that we were the team standing proud on top of the podium for the second year in a row.

‘I could not have achieved this without the great support of my team and our team sponsors who have supported us not only today, but with each meeting we contest. It’s also awesome to reward my family, my team and my sponsors with the win.’

Ellenbrook Speedway’s final meeting for the 2013 season will be this Saturday.

The special twilight meeting will start at 3pm.
