Michael Hamon has won an action paced Street Stock Dan Love Summer Cup at the Quit Bunbury Speedway on Saturday night, leading all the way in the prestigious twenty lap main event.

Hamon had the measure of his rivals in a stop start affair, and at every stoppage, cleared away from the opposition.

In the early going, a quartet of Collie drivers, consisting of Paul Briggs, Ethan Genev, Damon Thomson and Cody Avins were racing in close confines, with Genev spinning exiting turn four. Stewards would deem Thomson as the cause putting him to the rear of the field.

His demise allowed Damien Amato to tack on to the chasing pack as Hamon again cleared the field. His lead was negated by several stoppages for minor incidents, before the remaining laps run their course.

Nine times Champion, Wayne Thomson came from well back in the field to move to sixth. Thomson would spin on the final turn in a desperate finish, with Thomson lucky not to be collected by half the field.

Meanwhile Hamon would win by a quarter lap over Paul Briggs and fellow Collie competitor, Cody Avins, while Damien Amato and Ethan Genev would complete the top five.
