Kent Kings set a club record 11 heat maximums in a crushing National League victory over Scunthorpe Stags.

Kings beat the league's bottom side 69-23 at Central Park on Monday night to secure valuable points in their play-off bid.

Four of the Kent side were unbeaten by an opposition rider and it would have been five had Danny Ayres not shed a chain when partnering Ben Morley in heat four.

Among the highlights was Ayres' storming ride to win from a 15-metre handicap, while Morley (17+1) claimed his first maximum as Kent's No.1 rider.

There was also a maximum for skipper David Mason (14+4), with Benji Compton (14+1), Aaron Baseby (11+4), Ayres (9) and Jason Garrad (4+1) completing the tally.

Next up for third-placed Kent are back-to-back matches against second-bottom Buxton.

They travel to Derbyshire on Sunday, with the return at Central Park on Monday (6.30pm).
