In the midst of Shinju Matsuri festivities, the dirt track at Broome Speedway was packed with huge crowds as rev heads from all over WA flocked to the town for a huge weekend.

Broome Speedway held its annual two-day Shinju Stampede, with more than 85 cars nominated across 12 divisions, as well as the WA State Modlite that offered thousands of dollars in its prize pool.

For Brent Halliday and young gun Ben Harris, it was a very successful weekend, with the pair finishing on the highest points of the weekend, as well as Halliday winning the WA State Modlite title, edging out Zac Minshull and Robert Kirk.

Harris won all his heats and finals to win the junior Go Karts race and finish on the highest points for the weekend alongside Halliday.

Halliday said the weekend “could not have been better” after winning his heats and finals races as well as taking home the title.
