Grand Prix star Jason Doyle is six points away from his first Australian Championship after finishing third in round three at Undera.

Doyle led the heat scorechart on 14 points along with Belle Vue star Max Fricke and Edinburgh’s Sam Masters. They were joined in the A Final by Dakota North, who won the B Final.

And it was Masters who topped the rostrum to win his first Australian Championship round and move fourth in the standings on 36 points.

Doyle was beaten to second on the night by Fricke, who moved joint second overall on 37 along with Sedgmen, who notched nine and was excluded from the B Final after touching the tapes.

But Newcastle-born Doyle will fancy his chance of securing the gold at his local track Kurri Kurri on Saturday. He needs a maximum of six points to triumph, with that target reduced by every point Sedgmen and Fricke surrender.

Doyle’s quest was made somewhat easier when 2012 world champ Chris Holder crashed out of practice with a suspected broken wrist, ruling him out of the final round as well.

But the Leicester No.1 was unable to continue his clean sweep of round wins as Masters and Fricke starred on a reportedly difficult track.

North triumphed in the B Final ahead of Tungate. Tyson Nelson was excluded from the race after being adjudged to have brought down North.

CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS (AFTER ROUND THREE): 1 Jason Doyle 51, 2= Justin Sedgmen 37, Max Fricke 37, 4 Sam Masters 36, 5 Dakota North 35, 6 Rohan Tungate 31, 7 Tyson Nelson 30, 8 Josh Grajczonek 29, 9 Chris Holder 23, 10 Jack Holder 15, 11 Brodie Waters 14, 12 Jake Allen 13, 13 Kieran Sproule 10, 14 Josh Coyne 9, 15 Jack Fallon 8, 16 Joey Ringwood 6, 17 Jordan Stewart 3, 18 Brady Webb 1.
