Former male underwear model now Midgeteer and helmsman in control of the 14Q King Mopar is our next nomination and that’s Kody Stothard !!

 Dabbling in a few forms of motorsport over the years racing Midgets is where he seems more at home only running about a dozen shows to date and like Jesse Harris , Kody is stringing together some genuine race pace and shouldn’t be overlooked as a dark horse in the heats and main event on the 8th

BROCK DEAN NOMINATED

With a huge heritage in Speedway the next nominated car we have is no surprise and certainly won’t be a surprise if the driver makes the top 3 come the chequered flag in the main event

Running a King Chassis from New Zealand’s Justin Insley with a Hawk power plant Brock Dean has run only a few show this season however the 99Q car constantly rattles the timing monitors at the start of the show and then again the podium to back it up at the nights conclusion so keep an eye on the ninety nine

QSRA’S NEW SENSATIONS

In 1988 Aussie rock band Inxs had a hit song “New Sensation” well 33 years later could they have been singing about the two latest new sensations to hit the QSRA ??!!

One is set to make his Midget debut on the high banks of the Hi Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway for the Rodney Singleton Racing 3Q Spike Esslinger and thats none other than the Sprintcar Sensation Dylan Menz !!

While the other new sensation will roll out a second ED Pink rocket ship from the SBR Stable and that is the young gasser Connor McCullough in the ex- 45C Breka out of New Zealand in time for the Maryborough round on the 15th of May

All going to plan these two new drivers/combos will also contest the TFH Grand Finale/50 Lapper on the 29th of May at Archerfield

KENDALLS WINNING STREAK CONTINUES

KENDALLS WINNING STREAK CONTINUES

***WORDS FROM ARCHERFIELD SPEEDWAY***

In round nine of the TFH Midget Series, Michael Kendall continued his winning ways with a third consecutive win, leading throughout the 25-lap feature race to finish ahead of Charlie Brown, Matt Jackson, Darren Vine and Brock Dean.

The opening Midget heat was halted after a lap of racing when Nick McDowell climbed the wall in the main straight, ricocheted off the catch fencing and somersaulted over the start/finish flag stand before crashing back to earth. Once underway again, Kody Stothard held the early advantage before Cal Whatmore pounced to procure the lead on lap four. A late charge from Matt Jackson would see him advance into second spot, with Nathan Mathers home third.

Brad Dawson led all of heat two except when it mattered most, surrendering the position to Charlie Brown on the final lap. Sitting fifth with two laps to run, a late surge from Kendall saw him also relegate Dawson on the final lap to secure a runner-up result, while Rusty Whittaker again found himself watching from the infield after suffering yet another mechanical failure.

Despite starting from the fourth row, Kendall was unstoppable in heat three as he surged to the front. The lead changed with four laps to run when Kendall rounded up Whatmore, who would remain second at the flag ahead of Chris Singleton.

The final heat saw Brown collect his second win of the night, although it somehow wasn’t enough to secure pole position for the feature. Brock Dean and Mathers filled the minor placings, the latter surviving an altercation with Lachlan Paulger in turn three on lap eight.

The feature race played out very much like the Sprintcar main with Kendall launching from pole position to lead Brown through the opening moments. The top two spots never changed throughout as Kendall cleared away for his third consecutive win in TFH series competition. Brown also enjoyed a largely unchallenged run in finishing second, seeing off the initial threat from Dean and Whatmore, who would spin and retire infield soon after conceding fourth to Jackson. When Gavin McDowell spun to a halt in turn three with 11 laps remaining, Jackson had advanced to third, holding that position to the chequer. Having started on the outside of the sixth row, Whittaker was the big mover in the field and had surged into the top six but would, for the umpteenth time this season, fail to go the distance, exiting on lap 13. A late-race pass on Dean elevated series leader Darren Vine into fourth spot, with Mathers snaring sixth in advance of Singleton, Dawson and Mitchell Rooke, who was on track for a much better result before a spin on lap eight saw him banished to the back. Scott Jeynes, Kody Stothard and Jesse Harris rounded out the finishers, with Gavin McDowell joining Whatmore and Whittaker on the grass.
