IPSWICH driver Matt Pascoe's run of results at Charlton Raceway continued on Saturday night as he took the early lead in the National Super Sedan Series.

Pascoe beat home Steven Pearce by just under four seconds to take the chequered flag in the first round 50-lap feature race.

Kodee Brown was just over one second slower in third.

Pascoe has had some good results in Toowoomba previously and picked straight back up on Saturday night.

He also posted the fastest lap of the final, which came in the 44th lap.

"We had an electrical fault the whole way through the race but it probably helped me actually," Pascoe said. "The car was getting better and better."

"We're probably about 135 points ahead of the guy in second for the series.

"It's always good to get a good head start."

The series moves to Gympie on Friday night and Kingaroy on Saturday night before heading to the southern states.

Meanwhile, Toowoomba driver Brendan Kennedy enjoyed a victory in the Modified Production A main at Charlton Raceway on Saturday.

Fellow Toowoomba driver David Whell had success on Saturday night as well as he claimed victory in the Lightning Sprints category.

Mark Robinson also took out the V8 Dirt Modified feature race.
