DEAN WINS THE ROUND BUT WHITTAKER CLAIMS TITLE NUMBER 2

While Brock Dean took out the recent round 10 feature event in the prestigious Polar Ice Midget Series at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway it was young gun Rusty Whittaker claiming his 2nd Polar Ice Series Crown with a third place at the chequered.

Former Sprintcar star Callum Walker took out the nights Nexgen/Nupave QuickTime Award with a 14.944in the IBRP 35Q Cool Chassis Esslinger.

Bodie Smith in the 77Q Smith Brothers Racing Spike grabbed a heat race win in the opening stanza followed by the 51Q United Waste Services Eagle of Tim Farrell and Brock Deans Aliweld King 8Q crossed in third, Bradley Harrison, Cal Whatmore Jnr, Scotty Doyle and Tony Stephen rounded out the field in the 8 lapper.The RJR Kitchens Spike Esslinger of Mitchell Rooke romped home for the win in heat two smacking down a speed of 103.433 KPH ahead of TPC Earthmoving 45Q Eagle of Tom Clauss and the GSA Advanced Machining Spike of Brad “The Bandit” Dawson, Rusty Whittaker, Scotty Farmer, Chris Singleton, Callum Walker and on debut in the Midgets we saw Zac MacDonald round out the field.

The nights “crash action” began in the third race, we saw a very unfortunate meeting with the main straight wall for the 45Q Clauss rocket and after a series of tumbles down the concrete Scotty Farmer also copped a whack along the way. Both cars eventually coming to rest as both guys emerging unscathed however the same could not be said for the 45Q car and they were done for the night. On the restart Rusty Whittaker in the 89Q Polar Ice Boss Esslinger took the win over Chris Singleton in the 46Q Nexgen Aggressor and third place Brad Harrison who was incidentally limping home a much wounded Nupave Bullet Yaris after a bingle with the Farrell car in turn two. Riki Harrison was the only other recorded car on track for fourth.

Mitchell Rooke rounded out the heat races with another visit to victory lane in the Singleton Racing 3Q ahead of Brock Dean in second and the 35q of Callum Walker third, Scotty Doyle, Brad Dawson, Zac Macdonald, Bodie Smith and Cal Whatmore Jnr were all scored as finishers on lap 8.

Brock Dean lead the field flag to flag in the main event however it was Brad Harrison and Mitchell Rooke who proved to be the thorn in Deans side for the opening couple of laps at times on the rear of the Dean car

Scotty Farmer brought on the yellows after looping the 22Q Spike in turn 4 early just as Bodie Smith departed with 6 down after riding a wheel into the very fast turn one while it was a fast series of flips like the Clauss crash Bodie headed back to the pit area as the car rode the tilt tray.

Farmer and Doyle had a coming together in turn 4 which resulted in Doyle resting the John William Auto Sales Boss 89A on its side once righted both cars headed infield and no longer took place in the race by now Whittaker was hounding the rear of the Harrison car.

It was with 12 to go the 21Q car headed infield when his ride wouldn’t take throttle any longer as Chris Singleton was on a charge from deep in the field however he had the Rooke and Dawson cars in tow as all three were at one stage battling for third place supremacy this played into the hands of Walker and MacDonald as they both closed in very fast Tony Stevens ended his run on his side with 6 to run , Riki Harrison tried to move the tractor tyre off turn 4 and ended up bringing on the yellows again, at the restart Singleton got past the 89Q Whittaker car after a slight bobble off turn two and the trio ran to the flag in that order.

Mitchell Rooke crossed in 4th, Brad Dawson in 5th, Zac MacDonald in 6th, Callum Walker 7th and Cal Whatmore Jnr rounded out the eight finishers.

As mentioned Callum Walker picked up the nights Nexgen Nupave QuickTime Award while Mitchell Rooke scored the Revolution Race Gear Sunshine Coast “Lucky4th Place” voucher.

Notable mentions must go our new Polar Ice Champion Rusty Whittaker for claiming crown number 2 also to Zac MacDonald on 6th in the feature in the very pristine looking and performing Warren Walker 23Q Spike as well as the two big flips by Tom Clauss and Bodie Smith.

The next outing in Queensland will be the RAW Metal Corp Two Track Challenge this Easter weekend kicking off at Archerfield on Easter Saturday then backing up Easter Sunday in Toowoomba, Nominations are flowing in for these two nights so if you are wishing to run please let Brock Dean know ASAP.
