Troy Russell proved too good at Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway on Saturday night, winning the 50th Anniversary Meeting, Street Stock Feature Race, leading all the way.

After five qualifying heats were contested of which Russell won both of his events, Russell would lead from the drop of the green flag, leading Ben Riley and Corey Bauld.

Bauld moved to second place at the half way mark of the event, with Riley moving to third. At the same time, Dale Riley Jnr moved to fourth, passing Damien Hall who dropped to fifth.

Meanwhile Troy Russell had moved well clear of the rest of the field, leaving Bauld and Riley to fight out the minor placings. Dale Riley Jnr who was fourth for the second half of the race, was half a lap behind Russell who cruised to victory, with only six cars finishing on the lead lap.

It was Russells first Feature win of the season.
