Anthony Beare has won the New South Wales Street Stock Title at the Brobenah Speedway, Leeton, on Saturday night, and in the process broke more history.
In winning his 24th State Title, which is a record in itself, he becomes the first driver across any category in Speedway to win a State Title in every State and the Northern Territory.
On one of the longest tracks in Australia, Beare and Jacob Mills would start on the front row for the third running of the NSW Street Stock Title.
Beare immediately took the lead, holding off the constant early challenges from Mills, while Darryl Atkinson and Lenny Bates sit third and fourth.
Mills would take the lead off of Beare on lap five, only to have Beare take it back again, one lap later.
Beare would start to slowly create a lead over Mills, while Atkinson was still in third, while Brad McClure had moved into fourth place.
The race would go without a stoppage, with Beare winning convincingly over Mills, Atkinson and McClure, with Bates and Jason DeGoldi filling the top six places.
For Beare, it has been a massive year, yet again, reclaiming the National Title and the South Australian Title, and now adding the final piece of the National puzzle, his first New South Wales Title.
5 National Titles (one in Production Sedans), 9 South Australian Titles, 5 Victorian Titles, 4 Western Australian Titles, 3 Northern Territory Titles, 1 Tasmanian Title, 1 Queensland Title, 1 New South Wales Title.
