Street Stocks National Round Up

By Tameika McClure

With 48 cars nominated to hit the track at Latrobe for Round Two of the Tassie series, there was bound to be some carnage. Heat 6 saw a double rollover with Rebecca Hammond and Matt Bessell simultaneously taking a tumble. In the A Main the race it was Andy Russell who took a massive tumble on the last lap. The final was crazy with battles everywhere throughout the field. Matt Atkinson had heavy contact with the concrete wall which resulted in substantial damage. With the final being a green white checker Dale Riley Jnr crossed the line in 1st place before being relegated back to 3rd. Final result was Ben Riley 1st, Matt Hammond 2nd and Dale Riley Jnr 3rd.

Prior to the A Main all cars were parked on the track where they held a minute silence for Brett Waddington. The whole venue was just so silent and it was a great mark of respect for a former champion of our class.

The consolation final was full of heart stopping moments. 1st Brock Inches, 2nd Daniel Cunningham and 3rd Damien Hall.

Kingaroy hosted the Spring Spectacular which was also round 2 of the Edge Automotive and Performance Series. Nathan Barbeler took home the win in all 3 of his heats. Robert Trapp won two heats while Ryan Kahler took home the other heat win. Quite funny actually as the three heat winners actually ended up being the top 3 in the final. Nathan Barberler finished his night with a clean sweep of wins, Robert Trapp 2nd and Ryan Kahler 3rd.

Rockhampton had a small field of cars. John Roycroft was the winner of heat 1. Heat 2 was taken out by Matthew Storer and heat 3s winner was Ryley Haynes. In the final the top 3 home were Kenny Simpson, Ian Hardsman and John Roycroft.

Bunbury also had Street Stocks and the top 3 were Ethan Genev from Damon Thomson and followed by Colin Metcalfe.
