The opening round of the Banjos Bakery, Street Stock Series at the Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway has been won by Dale Riley Jnr.

Riley took the lead at the half way mark of the twenty lap Feature Race, sneaking up the inside of Corey Bauld in turn three, while the duo were in heavy traffic.

Bauld and Luke Williams started on the front row, but Williams retired while in the lead after six laps, setting up the ensuing battle between Bauld and Riley Jnr.

Steven Harvey who started out of postion three, was effectively third for the majority of the race, with Riley Jnr and Corey Bauld almost half a lap ahead of Harvey and the remainder of the field.

In a tense final few laps, Bauld was all over the back end of Riley Jnr, as the pair weaved their way through lapped traffic, but Riley Jnr held his nerve to win by a car length.

Earlier Matt Crawford and Brendon Green won heat races, along with Bauld who won both of his preliminaries.

Round two of the series will be held this Saturday night at Latrobe.
