SGP duo Bartosz Zmarzlik and Artem Laguta both raced to maximums for Vetlanda as they snatched top spot from Vastervik with a 56-34 win over the coastal club on Tuesday night.
Zmarzlik zoomed to a 15-point maximum, while Laguta went unbeaten over four rides on 12 to inspire their side to victory and a two-point lead in the final week of the regular Elitserien season.
Aussie racer Jack Holder was Vastervik’s top performer on 11, while triple world champion Nicki Pedersen notched nine.
This result guarantees Vetlanda a place in the play-off semi-finals. But they could yet progress in second place if Dackarna can overhaul their four-point lead and snatch top spot in their remaining two matches this week.
Elsewhere, former world champion Jason Doyle and Viktor Kulakov both raced to 13 paid 14 points for basement club Rospiggarna as they kept their hopes of avoiding the wooden spoon alive with a 50-40 win at home to Lejonen.
Former world No.2 Krzysztof Kasprzak collected 10 paid 12 for the Lions, while Mathias Thornblom notched nine paid 10.
Smederna survived Freddie Lindgren’s absence following his Scandinavian SGP crash to sign off their regular season with a 49-41 win at home to Piraterna in a rain-delayed match.
Andzejs Lebedevs starred for the hosts on 13 paid 14, while Michael Jepsen Jensen added 11 paid 14. Przemyslaw Pawlicki scored 10 paid 13 and Adrian Miedzinski accrued 10 paid 11.
Pawel Przedpelski top-scored on 12 paid 13 for the Pirates, with Niels-Kristian Iversen notching 11 and Mikkel Michelsen tallying 10.
In the day’s other meeting, Indianerna saw off Masarna 31-28 in a rain-shortened match in Kumla.
Krystian Pieszczek led the Indians scoring on seven, with Tai Woffinden racing to three paid four from three. German ace Martin Smolinski was Masarna’s best performer on seven paid eight.
