Kalgoorlie local Jack Barnewall has held off some of Western Australia’s best to claim victory in the 2020 Goldfields Machining Stocktober held this past Saturday Night at the Boyes Equipment Kalgoorlie International Speedway.
Barnewall defeated Damon Lyall and Ray Leonard in the thirty lap main event at the season opening race meeting for the Goldfields venue.
When the lights went green Barnewall raced away from the field with Karratha’s Stevie O’Dowd quickly moving into second from Ethan Genev and Damon Lyall.
Colm O”Riordan brought on the first stoppage on lap seven with Barnewall again clearing away from the field.
O’Dowd’s race was soon over finding the concrete wall with Genev, Lyall and local Ray Leonard having a great battle for the minors.
Within sight of the finish the yellows again came on for the stricken Ben Norman with Barnewall being brought back to the field for the restart.
Damon Lyall had worked his way back into second place prior to the stoppage and threw everything at the leader but Barnewall narrowly held on from Lyall and Leonard.
Collie’s Ethan Genev finished fourth from the Ground Masters Holden Commodore of Evan Wakefield, Linton Dickerson, Lachie Dellar, Dylan Williams and Jeremy Ferris the nine finishers.
