Brad McKendrick secured the biggest payday of his racing career last night at the Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway located just outside of Launceston in Tasmania.
With an entry list in excess of fifty cars to contend with, McKendrick lead thirty of the forty laps in the main event for the Killa Earthworx Stockie Showdown to earn a payout of over four thousand dollars.
McKendrick defeated Brett Waddington Memorial winner Troy Russell by 0.52 with former Tasmanian champion Corey Bauld officially third.
A fierce battle at the front of the field raged between the top five as Tasmanian champion Nathan Russell retired within sight of the finish with a fuel issue while running in the top five.
A significant amount of prize money was raised for the inaugural running of the event with plans already underway for the 2022 Killa Earthworx Stockie Showdown with interest already high amongst mainland competitors.
