Speedway was back on the track in Kingaroy on Saturday with a spectacular autumn night of action.
Racing was across five categories – from junior sedans (under 17s) through to the always-popular Modifieds, Super Sedans and Wingless Sprints.
There was action aplenty, with many local drivers finishing in the money.
A massive rollover by Brett Barron in Lap 7 of the Modifieds feature had spectators worried until he climbed unhurt from the vehicle.
Barron’s sedan ran across a tyre barrier at speed before rolling twice and ending up back on its wheels.
The spectacular crash followed a six-car pile-up earlier in the race.
Local favourite Josh Harm eventually took the chequered flag after dicing with Max Clarke for most of the 35 laps.
In the Street Stocks feature, Ben Stead led the way home after overcoming an early lead by Nathan Barbeler.
Barbeler and Trapp then raced neck-to-neck to secure the minor spots – leaving the rest of the field in their wake.
Trapp was eventually triumphant, locking in second.
In the Super Sedans, Toowoomba’s Sean Black claimed victory in Round 11 of the 2020-21 McCosker series.
The competition leader has won four of the races in the series and secured five other podium finishes.
Queensland champion Matt Pascoe missed out on a podium spot, finishing fourth behind Steve Jordan and Sam Roza.

The next scheduled event at the Kingaroy Speedway is the two-night Easter Stampede on April 3-4.
The Stampede replaces the Production Sedans National Title which was cancelled in October last year after a decision by Speedway Sedans Australia to postpone all Australian titles due to COVID-19 uncertainty.
However, the Kingaroy Speedway elected to still go ahead with two big nights of racing.
Racing on Easter Saturday will feature Production Sedans, Street Stocks and Juniors.
On Easter Sunday, it will be Production Sedans, Street Stocks and Modifieds.
