Jamie Oldfield wins from the B Main
Jamie Oldfield has won a thrilling AVEG WA Street Stock title at Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway on Sunday night, before a big crowd, in what was an extraordinary 40 lap A Main.
Oldfield came from position eighteen after winning the B Main, to defeat Manjimup driver Jack Favero, Justin Brumfield from the Northern Territory and defending champion Jack Barnwall.
The race had it all including a two lap restart after Mick Hamon was deemed to have spun Barnwall with two laps remaining.
The race started with Anthony Beare and Mick Hamon sharing the front row, with the duo having won seven Street Stock National titles between them, Justin Brumfield and Jack Favero would share the second row, with the race running clockwise.
Hamon would lead Beare and Favero, with the first move being from Favero, who moved to second on lap three.
In a spectactular opening, the race went green through the first ten laps with positional changes a-plenty.
After ten laps, Jamie Oldfield had already made his way through to twelfth position, As Hamon opened a small lead over Favero and Beare, who both were continually swapping second place, Behind them Brumfield would be engaged in a battle with Clint Hadley and Jack Barnewall with the trio also swapping positions continually.
With seventeen laps remaining, Hadley spun in turn four, bunching the field, The race would change completely soon after with Mick Hamon spinning while leading, spread eagling the field, with Hamon dropping to eleventh place, putting Brumfield into the lead for a lap before Beare took the lead for the first time in the race.
Beare's time leading the race lasted one lap, as the four times state champion suffered mechanical issues, putting Brumfield back in front, Jamie Oldfield's ascension to the front of the field was remarkable, moving to second and within two laps Oldfield had moved to the lead.
Brumfield would fight back, but couldn't stay with Oldfield, with Favero and Barnewall engaged in a great battle for the minor placings and amazingly they would be joined by Michael Hamon again in what looked destined to be a great finish.
With Oldfield taking the white flag, the drama hit new heights as Mick Hamon and Jack Barnewall made contact in turn 4, resulting in a 2 lap restart with Hamon deemed the primary cause, sending the 2 times National champion to the rear of the field, Hamon elected to park on the infield and didn't contest the last 2 laps.
The drama was not finished as Barnewall moved under Brumfield on the final lap, taking both drivers high, Jack Favero was able to get under Brumfield as the trio were seperated by just 0.385 of a second as they crossed the line.
The officials deemed the pass severe and relegated the defending champion to fourth, elevating Favero to second, with Brumfield third.
