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.

Have you ever wondered what’s in the numbers?

Let’s take a look at hot laps and there’s some interesting times from the Nupave/Nexgen Quicktime 18/19 season

Now we all remember Adam Clarke blasting to the current one lap record with a 12.866 back on the 18th of May way back in 2013 ….. Seems so long ago!

He again laid down an impressive time in the opening round last season with a 14.709 pipping Rusty Whittaker on 14.873 and Darren Vine in the IBRP 35Q who locked in a 14.886

Round two of the same season a little later in October it was Rusty Whittaker clocking 13.374 the first of the “13’s” which would turn out to be one of the only two in the season and set by Whittaker in the 89Q car.

Whittaker backed up his QuickTime stanza in round three with a 14.170 leading the time charts over a huge 19 car field with just over 2 seconds from 1st to 19th …… everyone was very close!

Round four on the 8th of December saw Rusty Whittaker complete the hat trick of QuickTime’s with a 15.100 ahead of Charlie Brown and Tim Farrell.

Darren Vine edged out Adam Clarke on boxing night in round five of 2018 clocking a 14.071 to Clarkies 14.203 and Rusty Whittaker’s 14.312.

Viney in the 6Q again topped the timing monitors on a super heavy track early January 2019 with a 15.892 ahead of a season best time for Glenn Wright banking a 16.146 and Bodie Smith at 16.271

Tim “The Hitman” Farrell locked in a 15.457 on the 26th of January in the 51Q ahead of another season PB from Tom Clauss in with a 15.536 to Rusty Whittaker in 3rd at 15.965

Rusty then took the line honours in the only February show at Archerfield leading a huge 21 car field with a 15.517 from Brock Dean’s 15.545 and Vine on a 15.580

The 9th of March saw the 35Q Callum Walker rein clocking a 14.024 ahead of Scotty Farmer in the 22Q who ran a 14.058 and Vine’s 14.118

Walker then backed up another QuickTime on the 6th of April again in the IBRP 35Q at 14.944 literally a fraction in front of Brad Harrison’s 14.947 and Farmers 15.255

Change of numbers, same result saw Rusty Whittaker now in the re-numbered BOSS car which now carried the 78Q digits topping the 18 car ladder with the seasons only other “13” at 13.650 over Farmer at 13.703 and Sydney-Sider Kaidon Brown at 13.729.

Farmer took out the season ending QuickTime of our 18/19 season with a 14.811 from Brock Dean at 14.939 and Zac MacDonald banked his season best at 14.946 in the Seasons Hot lap Sessions.

11 rounds plus the 50 lapper we invaded the “13’s” only twice!
We topped the ladder by hitting the “14’s” six times and ventured into the “15’s” just four times to take the nights “QuickTime” Title

In the 19/20 season GSA Fastman Award came on board, the hot lap session had been moved to after the Sprintcars, the biggest field we have ever had on opening night in over a decade with 19 entries and it was Kaidon Brown already giving the lap record a nudge by laying down a 13.289 from Brock Dean 13.339 and Viney again showing a ton of pace with a 13.444.

Clarke 14.709
Whittaker 13.374
Whittaker 14.170
Whittaker 15.100
Vine 14.071
Vine 15.892
Farrell 15.457
Whittaker 15.517
Walker 14.024
Walker 14.944
Whittaker 13.650
Farmer 14.811

Brown 13.289

Some people have been asking what the Bob Baker Challenge is exactly so in a nut shell here we have it

Bob Baker offers a cash incentive to not only support the QSRA shows but ensure every effort is made to make the big race each night

To win the $500 cash that is offered the following conditions have to be met

There must be 16 to 19 cars on the track fired up ready to take the green for the first attempt in the main event.

A random draw of the starters (1 to 16 up to 19) will be done prior to the start of the race.

The car drawn once passing the green on the first attempt to run the event wins the $500 providing they attended the previous QSRA sanctioned show.

If one or more car(s) moved up one or more positions it is the car that starts in the draw position.

If the field starts 19 to 24 there will be $1000 up for grabs!
The winner of the lucky draw will not be announced until they finish the race unless that car DNF’s they will be announced then to help ease the pain of the DNF
Bob Baker has been offering the Challenge since 2017 and we are thrilled to have Bob back on board for the ATRS Archerfield Midget Series as well as the Highbank Hussle in conjunction with the Queensland Title in Toowoomba!

That’s 16 QSRA Shows including the 50 lapper!

Audie Malt picked up the $500 on opening night in the American Tire and Racing Services Archerfield Midget Series our next QSRA sanctioned show is the NuPave/Nexgen Highbank Hussle on the 26th of October ……. Who will take the Challenge??


SPRINGFIELD LAKES Glenn Wright opened his 19/20 race season in style picking up a main event victory in the American Tire and Racing Services Midget Series with his APC/DRE Breka Esslinger 41W at Archerfield Speedway.

It was Kaidon Brown the young gun from Sydney who showed the nights promise bagging the GSA Fastman with a 13.289 and was then revealed the highest point’s scorer after the heat rounds just ahead of Rusty Whittaker.

Brown and his TFH/United Truck Parts King Hawk 97V took out the night’s first 10 lap heat race with a blistering pace clocking a best lap speed of 105.279 KPH, Cal Whatmore JNR in the Rodney Singleton Racing 3Q Spike Esslinger crossed in 2nd with Scotty Doyle running the family owned John William Auto Sales BOSS Esslinger 80Q.

Glenn Wright ran home in 4th while compact Speedcar recruit Matt O’Neil in the 16Q Porsche Breka finished just ahead of Tom Clauss in 5th while another compact Speedcar hopper Barry Gibbes running the 66Q Spike Hawk ran the duration in7th as Brad Dawson rounded out the field.

It wasn’t a great start to the night for Darren Vine finding himself laying over in turn 2 after a small wall lick in the King Mopar 6Q and Gavin McDowell who DNF’d with one run on the board in his 95Q.

Heat two saw a smaller field by a couple after a hot lap session bingle that eliminated some cars while they were repaired however Rusty Whittaker in the Steelmart/RAW Metal Corp BOSS Esslinger 89Q set sail at the green he was hunted down by the 99Q of Brock Dean along with Zac McDonald in the 23Q, Mitchell Rooke’s new look 34Q Spike Esslinger as Lachy Paulger crossed in 5th at the flag while Bodie Smith was the only DNF recorded.

It was back on for the young guns in heat three with some “super fly” laps by Brown and Whittaker, Rusty crossing the eventual victor over Brown, Dawson, Rooke, Whatmore, O’Neil, McDonald and Audie Malt in the Shane Malt 5Q as the 3rd Compact Speedcar Recruit Graeme Flynn rounded out the field in his King Gaerte 82Q.

Glenn Wright began his run to the chequers with a win in the final heat of the evening ahead of Darren Vine’s 6Q, Tom Clauss put in another text book skid to run 3rd, Scotty Doyle ran in 4th while Bodie Smith, Barry Gibbes and Lachy Paulger rounded out the 7 car field as Gavin McDowell retired after 3 revolutions and Brock Dean didn’t start with a minor brake concern that needed rectifying for the feature.

The Bob Baker Challenge was up for grabs with 18 starters by far the strongest field we have had in over a decade on opening night for the newly crowned American Tire and Racing Services Archerfield Midget Series and it was an all young gun front row with Brown from P1 AND Whittaker in 2, Wright and Doyle filled the second row in front of Whatmore JNR and Dean.

Darren Vine and Zac MacDonald slotted into 7 and 8 while Lachy Paulger and Brad Dawson filled the 5th row, Mitchell Rooke and Matt O’Neil were allocated P11 and 12, Bodie Smith and Tom Clauss banked heat race points for grids 13 and 14 while Graeme Flynn and Audie Malt found themselves buried well in the field in 15th and 16th as Gavin McDowell rounded out the field.

On the formation lap the night dream run came to an end for Brown as the 97V headed infield with a suspected battery voltage drop concern with made the Hawk power plant sound like its wings had been clipped this giving the inside row a chance to move forward and promote Glenn Wright to the P1 spot.

At the drop of the green the 41W bolted while Rusty Whittaker had his handful of some major steering lock compliments of a tap from behind as the field jostled for track supremacy the 77Q of Bodie Smith looped off turn four which eliminated the cars of O’Neil, Gibbes and Flynn as well as the Smith car .
On the restart Vine passed Whittaker in turn 2 as the rest of the pack had their own battles McDonald was on a flyer in the 23Q Spike as well as Dean was coming on strong around the top in the 99Q, Vine and Whittaker both went to the top in the Colebard Street end finding a ton of pace as Wright ticked the laps away both Vine and Whittaker applied the torch only to both come unstuck on a yellow as a car park formed at the same end where the speed was found.

Dawson, Paulger and Clauss were all parked on track the race drama unfolded on the back straight as Vine rode the right rear of the leader and headed to the pit wall at pace sustaining front end damage while Whittaker parked the 89 to avoid making it a 4 car wreck both requiring restarts so both sent to the back of the bus for the restart with 4 to run.

Wright led the field off again this time he had Whatmore JNR in pursuit and Brock Dean was up there ensuring the 41W worked hard for the win finally crossing and parking the APC/DRE Breka Esslinger in victory lane flanked by Whatmore JNR and Dean.

Mitchell Rooke crossed in 4th, Zac McDonald in 5th, Rusty Whittaker in 6th, Darren Vine 7th and Audie Malt crossed in 8th on track and as mentioned the winner of the Bob Baker Challenge!

Darren Vine crossed in 7th unfortunately unable to collect the American Tire and Racing Services “Lucky 7th” $100 voucher after not having racers on all four corners.

Well done to the top 3 on the night getting the job done it was a bitter sweet victory for Wright after showing pace in the 18/19 season only to have an engine failure cut his season short along with Cal Whatmore JNR also switching to Esslinger power this season.

Darren Vine showed some super pace in the new King SR11 package along with Zac MacDonald in the Warren Walker owned 23Q Hawk Spike.

This weekend we head to Toowoomba for the opening round of the Ultimate Speedway Challenge and then again on the 26th of October for the Nexgen/NuPave Highbank Hussle with round two in the American Tire and Racing Services Archerfield Midget Series back at Archerfield November the 2nd
