Tungate claimed his third Crump Cup beating Newcastle’sAussie champion Sam Masters, Kurri Kurri’s Mason Campton and Aussie under-21 title holder Jack Holderhome in front of a big Loxford Park crowd.

The final was delayed for an hour after two heavy crashes left Victoria’s Justin Sedgmen and visiting US rider Ricky Wells in hospital for observation.

Sedgmen’s Australian title series looks in doubt with what officials suspect is a serious shoulder injury after he landed heavily on his left shoulder when the chain on his bike snapped midway through a turn in his final heat.

Riding in the B-final Wells was badly shaken up, but escaped any breaks,when his bike rose and crashed wheel first into the fence on the final lap.

The four-meeting Australian Solo Speedway Championship starts at Kurri Kurri on January 6, before races at Undera (January 10) and Mildura (January 12) in Victoria and the final round at Gillman in Adelaide on January 14.

Tungate said the two crashes were a reminder of just how dangerous speedway can be and all the riders’ thoughts went out to Sedgmen and Wells.
