Strong field for FeNaClNG

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

Matt Her­bert has put the dis­ap­point­ment of miss­ing out on a third straight Brett John­son tro­phy last month be­hind him, tak­ing out the Nickol Bay Speed­way’s FeNaClNG races street stock fea­ture at the week­end.

Her­bert won ahead of a 14strong field of driv­ers who had come up from across the State for the an­nual meet.

It came down to the wire though, with Her­bert and sec­ond-placed War­ren Vanzetti split by just 0.15sec.

The ju­niors have been a tight tus­sle all sea­son and the week­end was no dif­fer­ent.

Jorj Park got up over Jared Coutts and Matt Magerl, with Jayme Man­field and Sarah Stevens fur­ther back.

Shakira Moss failed to fin­ish after hav­ing a strong week­end be­hind the wheel in the lead up to the fea­ture.

As has been the case all year, the wing­less cat­e­gory was a shootout be­tween Peter By­wa­ters and Troy O’Keefe, with the for­mer get­ting the wood over his op­po­nent by 1.3sec. Jayd Mathews was one lap be­hind in third place.

Three of four pro­duc­tion class cars fin­ished their fea­ture race. It was an­other tight one which was won by Greg Mills, who crossed 0.5sec. ahead of Jack McAu­ley.

Con­tin­u­ing the close rac­ing for the night, the mod­i­fieds class was a dead heat, with Brett Mills and Brake Jack­son each cross­ing at 8min. 49.119sec. Tom O’Driscoll was less than a sec­ond be­hind in third.

Only two sprint­cars con­tested an eight-lap fea­ture. Kar­ratha’s Colin Stan­nard fin­ished 1.7sec. ahead of Tom Price’s Chris Man­field.

Matt Peaker and Matt Her­bert jos­tle for top spot in the heats.

Steve Car­man, 4, and Dwayne Meagher, 25, get tan­gled up in the heats.
