Nine years after his last feature win at the Motorplex, Anthony Beare tonight broke through for another feature win, this time in the third round of the SSA Street Stock Novus Glass Month of Madness.
Beare was in solid form all night, though would not claim a heat win or even start from the front row in the feature race after a new format was used in conjunction with the Month of Madness to trial something different for the drivers.
At the drivers meeting a six invert was drawn, meaning the heat race fields set by last night’s feature results were inverted by the top six.
The top three from each of these heat results (Jamie Oldfield, Stefani Ameduri and Lenny Bates in heat one, and Ray Leonard, Peter Herbert and Beare in heat two) would then do a draw to determine their starting positions for the feature, while the remainder of the field was set by their finishing positions from the heats.
Stefani Ameduri would start from pole in the feature alongside Peter Herbert, with Herbert immediately into the lead while Anthony Beare quickly made his presence felt from the fifth position, racing into the lead on the third lap, displacing Herbert.A couple of yellow light stoppages would bring the race to a temporary halt; first of all for Lenny Bates who turned hard left into the turn four wall, then another for Stefani Ameduri spinning with Ben Norman in the same corner.
Beare led Herbert and Jamie Oldfield through each of these restarts, with Oldfield taking the opportunity to draw alongside Herbert on lap seven and then pass him, setting out after Beare.
Behind them was a number of cars shuffling positions, none more than last nights third place getter Daniel Ameduri, who was again making his way through the field from position nine, picking off a number of cars until he found himself in third place on lap twelve.
From here the front four order never changed, though behind them was a great battle for fifth, with Ray Leonard, Jace Kempton and Jake Hoath all holding the position in the final few laps. In the end though it was Hoath, racing all the way from position fifteen who claimed the fifth place result.
With tonight’s results taken into account, the gap has closed once again in the overall Novus Glass Month of Madness standings, with Beare leading the series, now only twelve points ahead of Jamie Oldfield in second place, while Hayden Norman is eighty-six points further back in third place.
With one round of the series remaining, to be held next weekend at the Geraldton Speedway, it will be great to finally bring this Month of Madness to a close, with the official series winner to be crowned in the mid west venue!
