Victorian, Matt Nelson has won the Queensland Street Stock Title at the Hi-Tec Oils Raceway, Toowoomba on Sunday night, after the program was washed out on Saturday night.
Nelson, would lead all forty laps after starting on the front row for the main event with Lenny Bates, while Nathan Barbeler and Steven Gartner would start on row two.
It would not end well for Barbeler, after he, Darren Ciesiolka, Andrew Burgoyne and Corey Sandow all lasted just two laps.
On the restart, Queensland Champion Robert Trapp moved to second, but Bates took back the position on lap six.
