The Crash ‘n’ Bash Steve Wales Memorial was on again at Nagambie Speedway at the weekend.
The weekend saw the return of women’s races after some years, junior and senior go-karts and the main event, which was taken out by Lenny Bates, who continued his great form at the track.
Steve Attwell finished second in the main event, ahead of district driver Allen Treble, Finley Burke and Shannon Mair.
The Nagambie opens was won by Shane O’Brien, ahead of Daniel Kettels and Heathcote’s Geoff Pearce, while the women’s crash ‘n’ bash was won by Leanne Young.
The memorial race is named in honour of driver Steven Wales, who was fatally stabbed in St Kilda in March 2004.
Wales was to race in a Nagambie Crash ‘n’ Bash meet before his death and the speedway has held the memorial race for 10 years.
Before the 50-lap final, drivers stood for a minute’s silence on the starting grid next to their cars.
