SCUNTHORPE equalled the biggest win in the Championship this season with a 63-27 demolition of Kent at the Eddie Wright Raceway.
The Scorpions made it seven straight home wins with their most emphatic victory in over three years, since beating Redcar by 40 points in May 2018.
Tero Aarnio completed a paid maximum (14+1) with reserve Jordan Palin (10+2) and guest Steve Worrall (10+1) both in double figures for the second-placed hosts, whilst Scott Nicholls scored 10+1 for the Kings.
Aarnio said: ““I believe my last maximum at Scunthorpe was 11 years ago. I think it was against Glasgow in 2010.
“Scott Nicholls is class. There’s a reason why he was in the Grand Prix series for many years. I love riding against a rider like him – it’s even better when I manage to beat him, and I beat Scott twice tonight.
“I think the whole team has a good understanding at the moment, and we all ride well together. It’s good fun to come here on a Friday night. It doesn’t feel like work. When everyone is relaxed, you get good results.”
