A pair of Northern sprintcar drivers have added big results to their rapidly growing resumes after strong performances on the mainland.
Nineteen-year-olds Jock Goodyer and Tate Frost finished first and second respectively across the three-night Easter Trail event at Avalon, Mt Gambier and Warrnambool, tallying points with individual performances throughout.
Goodyer picked up heat victories across all three venues as well as the A-main win at the opening Avalon event to tally 650 points, while Frost won heats at Avalon and Warrnambool.

Frost was consistent across all three events, charging through the field in his first two A-main races before finishing with 590 points for the Trail, tying with racing royalty Marcus Dumesny.
Putting no major expectations or pressure on himself during the three-day experience, Goodyer identified consistency as the main reason for his success after almost taking out the final A-main race of the program - leading for 23 laps.

"It's a privilege to win it [the Easter Trail], it's a hard three days and you've just got to keep your mind in it," he said.
"You've just got to be consistent and we showed that - we had a win and two seconds [in the A-mains]."
Both drivers thanked their crews on social media for their efforts.
