Herbert salutes the flag
Matthew Herbert has put on another impressive display at the Nickol Bay Speedway at the weekend, coming up trumps in an eight-strong stock car field.
Herbert led from the front for most of the night and wasn’t to be denied in a final race which saw a few hairy moments, including Trevor Herbert attempting to become part of the wall on the reverse run.
Special mention went to Al Couper for managing to get his car out on the track despite rearranging the front end in the second-last heat.
Troy O’Keefe got his slice of the pizza in the wingless category despite going for a spin on the first lap.
Chantelle Magerl got the wood on the boys after the restart and looked to be in control, but O’Keefe nailed a second restart with a few laps to go to take line honours.
Magerl ended the race in second place, half a lap behind O’Keefe.
John Magerl weaved his way to victory in the sprintcar feature race, winning out over the two Rail Possessions Australia cars after starting at the rear of the pack.
The next Nickol Bay Speedway meet will be held on September 19.
Drivers come unstuck in the penultimate stock car heat.
