Carnar­von’s Wade Ma­son has come out on top of the stock-car pack at Nickol Bay Speed­way’s an­nual two-night FeNaClNG meet last Fri­day and Satur­day.

Ma­son was in the mix all week­end and saved his best un­til last, win­ning the fea­ture race in a time of 3min. 42sec. 855ms.

Barry Ma­son crossed the line in sec­ond by the skin of his teeth over lo­cal favourite Matt Herbert, 2.3 sec­onds be­hind the win­ner.

A strong field of wing­less rac­ers hit the track through­out the meet and it was Pin­jarra’s Mitchell White who ruled the roost.

White crossed in a time of 11:35.589, 1.4 sec­onds ahead of Man­durah’s Rus­sell Seery.

Kar­ratha drivers Peter By­wa­ters and Jayd Mathews have been go­ing toe-to-toe all sea­son, and it was the ex­pe­ri­enced head of By­wa­ters which got him over the line for the fi­nal podium place this time.

The pro­duc­tions fea­ture was won com­fort­ably by Kar­ratha’s Jack McAu­ley, who fin­ished one lap ahead of fel­low lo­cal Danny Ey­gen­raam and Greg Robin­son.

In a tight race, Broome driver Ray Clifton took out the mod­i­fied class in a time of 3:42.131, ahead of Broome’s Jeff Steele and Mick John­son. Jared Coutts and Bray­don Magerl won the two ju­nior fea­tures among strong com­pe­ti­tion.

The week­end also her­alded the first time for many years for­mula 500 and side­car rac­ers have taken to the Nickol Bay Speed­way track.

Ron­nie Hankin, Hugh Bri­otti and Josh Wells took their side­cars for a spin around the track while in the for­mula 500s New­man’s Brooke-Louise Sharpe squared off with Matthew Ed­wards-Pope, Rick Bell, Gavin Fer­gu­son and War­rick Bussen­schutt.
