It?s Ohl or nothing for speedway?s new champ
GOGANGO's Jeff Ohl lived up to his top ranking to steer his side to a commanding win in this year's Queensland Super Stocker Teams Challenge in Rockhampton.
After claiming the Rockhampton Saloon Car Club's overall club champion title for season 2005, Ohl continued his winning form at the Rockhampton Showgrounds on Saturday night.
Ohl combined with Rockhampton's Digger McCallum, Joel Thomas and Kevin Young to produce 144 points in the teams event.
It was a landside victory, with rival Rockhampton teams, led by Roy Boase and Danny Lennon, finishing on 89 and 88 points respectively to fill the minor placings.
On the support program, Rockhampton's John Murphy clinched the super stocker feature, edging out fellow Rockhampton drivers Chris Spreadborough and Lee Briskey.
Mal Watkins, Alan Generick and James Murphy recorded a Gladstone trifecta in the AMCA nationals.
In the fender benders, Rockhampton's Gareth Keith cruised to victory ahead of Rockhampton's Darren Saunders and Josh Keen.
The club's next meeting is on Saturday, October 8, with some of Australia's best super sedan drivers hitting the track for a round of the national series.
Defending champion and Queensland No. 1, the Gold Coast's Jamie McHugh, heads the starting list, which also includes a strong Central Queensland contingent.
