After finishing on the podium in the last two state titles, Steven Harvey has broken through to claim a maiden victory in the 2020/2021 SSA Street Stock Tasmanian State Title held last night at the Gulf Western & Independent Oils Raceway in Latrobe
.Harvey crossed the line just 0.370 of a second ahead of five time Tasmanian Champion Troy Russell with defending champion Nathan Russell a further 0.663 of a second behind in third place.
The battle for the lead between the top three raged throughout the thirty lap finale with Harvey remarkably suffering a flat right rear tyre as he took the chequered flag.
The SSA Street Stocks put on a great display of racing across the two nights of competition at the Latrobe venue with the main event only seeing the one stoppage at lap twenty.
