Anthony Beare has won a record fifth National Street Stock Title at the B&S Earthworks Timmis Speedway, when he won the Speedway Sedans Australia, Mental Racewear, National Street Stock Title on Sunday night.
Beare was too good, leading from lap three after Mark Jennings and Shane Roycroft swapped the lead in the early laps.
Roycroft would be the first to retire on lap six after sustaining a flat tyre and would soon be joined by Dylan Campton.
Mark Jennings was involved in a great battle for the minor placings including Troy Russell, David Barrie and Rhys Heinrich as they all chased Beare who had opened a handy lead.
The race would be brought under caution again, with the demise of Mark Jennings in turn four. Jamie Lock would also retire from the race while in sixth place at the same time with re-shuffled the lead group.
Beare continued to lead and drove away from the field again, as David Barrie was joined by Mick Dann and Heinrich. The battle for the minor placings was brilliant as it become apparent Anthony Beare was not going to be caught with only a mechanical issue going to stop the defending Champion from winning again.
Heinrich would lose a wheel in the back straight with ten laps remaining, and would be joined by Troy Russell as another retiree which again shuffled the placings behind Beare.
The race would just get back under way when a section of the track lights went out, resulting in a further stoppage. Drivers were happy to continue, and Beare would race away to his fifth title victory.
Mick Dann would hold on for second place, his third time as the runner-up in the event, while Darren Giacometti would be third, with Nigel Reichstein and Nathan Barbeler completing the podium, while David Barrie would be the final driver on the lead lap.
