Tai Woffinden was crowned British Champion for a third successive year on a dramatic night at Monmore Green.
The 24-year-old had fortune on his side in the Grand Final when the race was stopped after Jason Garrity was excluded for falling when Craig Cook was leading. But Woffinden would make the most of his second chance to get the better of Cook who sealed his second consecutive wild-card spot at Cardiff after finishing ahead of Danny King in the re-run.

Many people take this meeting in on the way to Cardiff
FIM Speedway Grand Prix star Chris Harris survived a rain-soaked SGP qualifying semi in Terenzano to reach his third straight GP Challenge.
The Cornishman, who flies the Union Jack in next Saturday’s Adrian Flux British SGP in Cardiff, finished fifth in Italy on nine points.
He is Great Britain’s sole representative in the last round of the SGP qualifiers at Rybnik on September 5, when a top-three finish will book him a World Championship return for 2016.
Robert Lambert’s Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup heroics and UK form have earned him a deal with Swedish Allsvenskan League leaders Masarna.
The 17-year-old cemented his reputation as the future of British speedway by impressing alongside Tai Woffinden in the Race Off at Vojens on June 11.
