A wet Saturday night saw the Vodafone Springs Speedway opening night event moved to Sunday where weather allowed for an action-packed start to the season.
Jamie Larsen survived the carnage in the sprint car feature race to take the chequered flag in the 1NZ car by 1.8s from Keaton Dahmn.
Dean Brindle was third with Michael Pickens fourth.
Pickens, Brindle and Larsen each won a heat earlier in the night but the biggest action was a crash by Jamie McDonald. The Aucklander was the big loser of the meeting where most of the other big names had strong results.
