Gold­fields speed­way duo Jack Barnewall and Dean Shore jus­ti­fied a trip to Esper­ance last week­end to grab a third Street Stocks 20/20 Chal­lenge ti­tle.

The well-known Kal­go­or­lieBoul­der driv­ers edged fast-fin­ish­ing sib­lings Josh and Hamish Ma­calpine.

An­other Gold­fields com­bi­na­tion, Bob Wake­field and Peter Walker, fin­ished third.

A mixed bag of plac­ings meant there was no clear favourite head­ing into the last of the heats, with 11 nom­i­na­tions ad­vanc­ing to the fea­ture. It was not, how­ever, plain sail­ing for Wade Rigney and Sean Bar­rett, with a hard hit in traf­fic tak­ing them to the in­field.

Zane Humphrys also had a greet­ing with the wall in a last-ditch bid to go on the out­side of the fi­nal plac­ers.

It was a des­per­ate ef­fort to grab a podium fin­ish, with two cars un­able to fin­ish. Shore set the pace early, cruis­ing through the first 20 laps and paving the way for Barnewall to grab a big ad­van­tage head­ing into the last 20.

It also set the tone for a bumperto-bumper clash in front be­tween Barnewall and Hamish Ma­calpine.

Ma­calpine led, but half­way through the 20 laps, the class of Barnewall lifted him to a rous­ing vic­tory and ex­tended a su­perb record in the event.

Three wins with Shore and two along­side Aaron Mur­phy make Barnewall a five-time win­ner in seven an­nual 20/20 chal­lenges.
