Sydney’s young gun Kaidon Brown ventured to the Highbanks of the Hi Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway on Saturday and left with a bag of gold as the victor of the NuPave/Nexgen Hire Highbank Hussle.
It turned out to be a King Chassis NZ Domination in the 25 lap main event with Brock Dean in the 99Q DTR Mechanical King Hawk and Darren Vine’s Craig Thompson Machining 6Q King SR11 completing the podium.
Yandina’s Troy Ware in the Troy Ware Constructions Bullet Mopar 71 clocked a blistering 91.173 kph on his way to a heat race victory ahead of Brown and Dean while Cal Whatmore JNR’s night began with the first a night full unusual DNF’s in the 3Q Singleton Racing Esslinger.
Darren Vine began his night of success taking the victory in race two ahead of the 23Q Johnny Mc Towing Spike Hawk and the Steelmart 89Q of Rusty Whittaker.
Kaidon Brown continued the King victories in the third heat race ahead of Troy Ware and Tim Farrell in the United Waste 51Q Eagle while Viney wrapped up the round of heats in race four from Ricky Robinson’s 56Q Watty’s Fabrication Breka Gaerte and Glenn Wright in the APC/DRE 41W Breka Esslinger.
With two heat race wins under his belt Darren Vine would come out highest points scorer and drew the pill to lock the top ten is as they stood so that joker remains !
From the get go it was on for young and old , Brown and Dean attacked the front early while Whittaker and Ware were throwing slide jobs lap after lap as the rest of the field searched for any drive with the car set ups they had.
Brown, Dean and Vine had settled into the top three as Ware and now Chaffey applied the blow torch after Whittaker retired with a deflated left rear while Wright, Matt Jackson and Chris Singleton were coming on stronger as the laps counted down however after the 25 lap duration it was the three Kings of Brown, Dean and Vine heading to victory lane.
We had a large number of nominations the Bob Baker Challenge was amped up to $1000 unfortunately for the 46Q driver Chris Singleton P14 was drawn however as he missed the previous round the cash stayed with Bob.
This weekend we head back to Archerfield for round two of the American Tire and Racing Services Archerfield Midget Series with over 20 cars nominated again.
