David Fall has grabbed the feature win at Manjimup Speedway on Friday night, after fighting his way through from position five to grab the lead from pole sitter Damien Amato on lap ten.

Daniel Stanley started alongside Amato on the front row for the fifteen lap feature and got the initial jump, but Amato was quick to fight back and race away.

Over the next few laps Amato would build up a sizeable lead as Fall worked his way past Collies Ethan Genev and local boy Shane Whild and then set out after the lead.

Amato got caught in lapped traffic and by lap nine Fall had closed the gap and was looking for a way through. All of a sudden he got his opportunity, with Amato forced wide by a lapped car and Fall diving underneath to grab the lead.

Fall would then race away to grab the win while Shane Whild would get underneath Genev in the final lap to grab fourth place.

Matthew Thomson raced away to grab the win in the Junior Sedans on the same program.

Street Stocks and Junior Sedans will both return to action tomorrow night at Margaret River Speedway.
