Michael Pickens underlined his Midget Car prowess by adding the Springs Speedway National Series to his season’s tally.
March 4, 2007. Michael Pickens put on exclamation point on his domination of 2006-2007 Midget Car racing season by clinching the Western Springs Speedway National Series last night.
The newly-crowned New Zealand champion drove the Don Kay owned Little Rippers car to victory in the 25-lap season finale at Western Springs after a late race duel with Shayne Alach.
Pickens had led the National Series points going into the last race and the victory convincingly sealed the season-long points race at Western Springs.
Alach’s second placing saw him climb the leaderboard and pip Bryce Townsend for second in the series by just one point.
Pickens wins the series with 135 points from Alach on 106 and Townsend 105.
Shaun Insley passed Carl Worboys on the final lap to take third place in last night’s feature race.
