Hempnall's Luke Parfitt got the new season at Swaffham Raceway off to a dramatic start on Sunday afternoon.
Parfitt, trailing long time leader Great Yarmouth's Michael Allard, went for the last bend lunge on Allard and pulled off it off to great effect to win the Impact Videos-sponsored two-litre National Bangers Open.
Allard held on for second spot with Pulham St Mary's Gavin Bond third.
Team-mates Parfitt and Clarke won the allcomers races before the day concluded with a destruction derby. Allard sought revenge on Nigel White with the latter's son Lewis (Dereham) finishing off Allard. Victory went to King's Lynn's Jay Chilton.
