Herne grabs NSW speedway title
Stuart Herne was back to his dominant best at Bartercard Lismore Speedway on Saturday night, winning the Quantum Racing Industries NSW V8 Dirt Modified Title.
In a thrilling race that was run without a stoppage, Herne gained the lead at lap eight, and was never headed.
The Farmer Charlies entry used the highline of an excellent racing track to pass the lapped cars at will, with Tim Morse and Luke Oldfield taking second and third.
The hard charger of the night award went to Victorian champion Tim Morse who advanced from position 11 to be second at the end.
Stuart Herne was quick to praise his crew. "We have had some up and down results lately, but the crew stuck to their guns tonight, and I brought it home for them."
Tim Morse, although happy with second place, revealed a problem through the feature: "We lost power steering toward the start of the feature, and being such a fast track, you needed very good car direction. There are not many tracks that you can pass on the outside like that."
The Production cars put on an a great display, with Australian champion Peter Lack taking a victory from Greg Worling and Steve Jordon.
AMCA racing was a torrid affair, with the race being declared with two laps remaining after a collision that involved the top four cars. Nick Stubbs was awarded the win from Jim Night and Stuart Hall.
Jason Green had his first feature win in the Stocker division with fellow Grafton driver Jai Stephenson second and Scott Owens third.
Luke Grey was successful with yet another feature win from Geoff Rose and Mark Shannon.
In Four Cylinders, it was Matt Gamble from Cody Armstrong and Cassie Salked while the Junior podium consisted of Thomas Duncan from Reagan Burley and Kyle Armstrong.
