That winning feeling returned for Steven Lines and the Halls Motorsport team recently at Adelaide’s Speedway City after they took out the annual Australian Masters.


Just a week after destroying a car in a crash while fighting for the lead of the 40 Lap Marathon at Murray Bridge Speedway, Lines bounced back aboard a brand-new WA # 3 Penske Truck Rental / Halls Haulage supported KPC in the best possible way: taking out his maiden Australian Masters win.


“This win is dedicated to my hard-working team, because they worked their butts off during the week to put together a new car, and this was without a doubt the best possible way to reward for all of their efforts,” Lines expressed in regards to his fourth win of the 2015-16 season – his second from as many starts this season at Speedway City.

“I have finished in minor positions in past Australian Masters attempts, so it was great to finally get through for a win.”


Earlier in the night, Lines had topped the time sheets in qualifying time trials, then went on to finish second in both of his heat races, and won the pole shuffle that earned him the right to start the 30-lap feature race from pole position.


Lines’ focus is now on an event he has previously won – the $10,000 to win Jackpot at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway in Victoria – this Saturday night.

“Avalon Raceway is the track where I made my Sprintcar debut over a decade ago, and it’s a place I have a lot of experience around, so the goal is to try and get through the tough qualifying format and be right up there at the end of the night.”


Halls Motorsport is proudly supported in the 2015-16 season by the following sponsors: Halls Haulage, Penske Truck Rental, Bridgestone Tyre Centre Albany, Clarend Transport, Holla Fresh, Valvoline Oils, Carlin & Gazzard, CJD Equipment, South East Conveyers, JIG-G-AG Contracting, Skwid Signs, Steve Rice Photography, and GKR Transport.


“This is the first of the big-paying shows this season, and there’s a lot of extra incentive to do well,” he stated.
