Peter Walker wins Street Stock Stampede at Manjimup Speedway
Peter Walker won the Street Stock Stampede at the Tyre Power Manjimup Speedway on Sunday night.
With two wins and a second in the heats, Walker scored 100 points and the pole position in the feature.
Manjimup driver David Fall fell short of the top spot as he finished with a win and two seconds in the heats to total 92 points. Shane Whild also put in some good racing to end up with 81 points.
Other drivers to stand out were Trent Claybrook and Daniel Standley with each recording a win in the heats.
The feature race over 25 laps was all Walker as he led from the start with Whild in second place.
Fall held the third spot on the track for the first four laps then faded quickly before retiring with only six laps completed.
Stanley stepped into third position following the withdrawal of Fall.
The race continued at a fast pace to the finish and a well- earned victory to Walker.
Production sedans also put in some top racing and in the feature it was all Aiden Trewern who led from start to finish.
Wayne Leviston started well and held second place before Rickie Nuccini, coming from position four on the grid, moved into second place.
Leviston slowed quickly heading up the back straight and was run over by Shane Dubberlin.
Dubberlin was forced to retire with a flat front right tyre while Leviston also went infield.
Nuccini then had the gap between himself and Trewern cut back to zero for the restart.
Trewern was not to be outclassed and quickly re-established his commanding lead.
Another restart in the latter stages of the race gave Nuccini another chance however Trewern was never in danger, winning the race by a comfortable margin.
Mitchell Killeen, Mark McDonald and Matthew Jones had a tight battle for the miners but an incident on the back straight resulted in Jones entering the car park on the infield.
Killeen beat McDonald to the line to fill the third position on the podium.
Legend Cars turned up with a field of 10 drivers with all of them starting in the feature.
Nathan Brennan looked to have control of the night having two wins and a third in the heat races.
Steward Clive started next to Brennan in the feature and jumped to the lead and was never really challenged by Brennan throughout the 15 laps.
Ricky-Lee Beard showed much improvement as she worked her way into third place after a tough battle with Dean Finlan.
Ben Boyd was also driving well on the night winning heat two but could not show the same form in the final as he finished in fifth place.
Super mods had a small field of five for the night, with State champion Grant Campbell winning all four races with relative ease.
Jarrod Hobley was his main threat finishing in second place in the first two heats, Hobley failed to start in heat three and the feature leaving Campbell unchallenged.
Mark Broome and Luke Jury tried hard but were in a different league to Campbell.
The next event is on February 5 when Modified Sedans return to Manjimup.
