King's Lynn 63, Newport 31
LYNN celebrated a new team sponsorship deal with their biggest Premier Trophy South win of the season at the Norfolk Arena.
Club officials unveiled long standing backers Roger Warnes Transport prior to tapes up before Rob Lyon's men eased back into top spot.
The Norfolk haulier will now adorn the club's race jackets for the rest of the season - including next week's live televised Premier League curtain raiser at Somerset.
“This is fantastic news for us and hopefully the start of an exciting partnership,” said Stars' co-promoter Buster Chapman. “I'd like to say thank you to Roger and everyone at Roger Warnes Transport for deciding to come on board with us. I know Roger very well, we go to some away meetings and they are a lovely family. They're a very successful business and we want to be a successful club so it should work well.”

Newport never remotely threatened to spoil the party but American rider Chris Kerr did serve up the best race of the season with a thrilling last bend heat eight surge to eclipse Darcy Ward.
Lynn's cult hero Emiliano Sanchez produced the pass of the year three races later to wreck Kerr's tactical mission after weaving past his team mate Mark Lemon.
Tomas Topinka and Chris Schramm were faultless for the second consecutive Saddlebow outing but Christian Henry (paid ten) deserved some plaudits for his finest night in Lynn colours to date.
National League racer Darren Mallett bagged a second successive home race win aided by minder Topinka in heat six after Lemon had split the home duo in the opener.
Kyle Newman wiped out James Holder in the reserves as Ward cashed in on his first Stars' tour since an impressive Polish League debut for Torun.
Schramm played hardball to box in Paul Fry behind the super slick Henry before Jordan Frampton and Holder were the latest Wasps to hit the shale. Holder dragged his machine off the track but Frampton endured the wrath of the Stars' fans after forcing another early stoppage.
Kerr stunned Ward in heat eight but Schramm was awarded the next to move Lynn 22 clear at the interval.
Former Stars' team boss Laurence Rogers deployed his American ace on a tactical mission for the Wasps in heat 11 but it was Lynn's South American who sparkled.
Sanchez chased home Topinka before Lynn's maximum men claimed a routine finale in front of their watching team mates on the inner track.
Stars: Topinka 13+2, Henry 9+1, Schramm 14+1, Sanchez 10+1, Graversen 4+2, Ward 8+1, Mallet 5+1.
Wasps: Lemon 7+1, Kerr 8, Fry 8, Werner 1+1, Frampton 2, Newman 1, Holder 4.
