Kent Kings climbed to second place in the National League on Monday night - their highest-ever position.
Their 57-37 home victory over Buxton Hitmen leaves Kings on the verge of clinching a play-off place.
Kings won nine of the 15 heats - including six one-twos - on a night that saw No.1 rider Ben Morley lead the way with 15 points.
Benji Compton shrugged off a blown engine to rack up four heat wins for a 12-point haul.
Stand-in captain David Mason (9+3), Aaron Baseby (8+3), Danny Ayres (7+1) and Jason Garrad (6+1) completed Kings' tally.
Kent travel to play-off rivals Stoke Potters on Saturday, followed by the rearranged return fixture against Buxton on Sunday.
