Snow cleans up as speedway youth turns out in force at Scunthorpe track
Australian Tyson Snow, 17, was the dominant force in the latest amateur meetings at Scunthorpe’s Eddie Wright Raceway as he relegated Summer Championship leader Steven Jones and 2009/10 champion Gary O’Hare to the minor podium placings.
However, the most pleasing aspect of the meeting was the number of junior entries.
Sixteen youth riders rode in three classes with Lewis Whitmore, Luke Woodhull and Liam Carr being class winners.
In the other adult sections it was Glyn Edwards who won the Support Class ahead of the Pearce brothers (Martin and Simon) while the Novice Class saw Callum Harris, Jimmy Culbert and Ivan Howarth fill the first three places.

Sadly one rider, Jay Atkinson, broke a foot during his debut at the track.
Organiser Richard Hollingsworth declared the meeting another success.
“We had forty riders and fifty-six races so that has to be good," he said.
“To have so many youth riders, especially the day before a British Championship round, was really impressive and was definitely a record.
"We even had a couple of real youngsters in the new 80cc class. They had to do three laps but it is great to keep attracting new kids to race.
"They are the future of the sport and the way the numbers have gradually increased over the last couple of years it can only be good for the sport."
“The next round will be on Sunday, October 7 and will see the Summer Championship titles awarded.
