Northside’s Brock Dean in the 99Q DTR Mechanical/True Powder Coating King Hawk finally broke the streak of bridesmaid finishes to take round three in the ATRS Midget Series after grabbing the lead off Darren Vine with less than a handful of laps left in the main event this past Saturday night.

Round two winner Rusty Whittaker clocked the nights GSA Fastman Award at 13.475 and would see him highest points scorer after the 4 heat races in the 89Q Steelmart Sunshine Coast/Specialised Energy BOSS Esslinger.

Cal Whatmore JNR was back on all 4 cylinders this show in the Rodney Singleton Racing/Speedy Air Conditioning Spike Esslinger 3Q claiming the line honors of the first heat ahead of the returning ”Beenleigh Bullet” which is in fact the Spike Mopar 11Q of Charlie Brown and Tom Clauss in his TPC Earthmoving 45Q Eagle.

Heat one was a bit scrappy and as a result of damages from battle we unfortunately lost the cars of Brad Dawson and Glenn Wright for the night.

Heat two saw Rusty Whittaker weave his through the 9 car field to the lead with the 18Q Breka Esslinger of Nathan Mathers and Zac McDonald’s Johnny Mc Towing Spike Hawk 23Q in tow crossing the 10 lapper in that order.

Brock Dean took the victory in heat race three on the nights programme ahead of Whittaker and Whatmore JNR incidentally the car back in 6th bagged the quickest actual speed at 94.924kph and that was Mitchell Rooke in the RJR Kitchens Spike Esslinger 34Q.

Darren Vine rounded out the nights heats taking the victory in the shortened event (down from 10 to 8 laps) ahead of the Beenleigh Bullet and Ricky “Bobby” Robinson in the 56Q Benkel Machinery/Watty’s Fabrication Breka Gaerte.

From the get go Darren Vine in the P2 position had a blinder of a start pulling car lengths at the green as Whittaker ducked back down underneath the King Car Brown, Dean and Chaffey all fought for real estate ownership coming off turn two it was now the likes of McDonald, O’Neil, Rooke were all on the scene at race pace, Vine had a moment off turn four which bunched the field up shuffling a couple forward and one back.

“The Wiley Fox” Anthony Chaffey was now on the tail of the Vine and Dean freight train in his RidgeTrans BOSS Chev 25Q

Zac McDonald gave the top shelf a go in the 23Q as Whittaker fought back to the lead pack after being burying it was now a gaggle of cars for 3rd as Chaffey, McDonald , Whittaker and Rooke fought hammer and tongs in the meantime Dean and Vine set sail.

McDonald’s car came to a slow pace and eventually brought on the yellows which bunched up the field and gave everyone a chance to breathe.

On the restart with 22 to go it was a pair of Kings leading a pair of Bosses it appeared Charlie Browns run was coming to an end after dropping a ton of pace and places with what was now evident to be a flat left rear tire.

Both Vine and Dean hit the lower line as Whittaker went up the top to eventually round out Chaffey Rooke hung in with the duo of Chaffey and Whittaker however Nathan Mathers was now in the party as well was Matt O’Neil.

As the laps counted down and going green for a decent stint the front cars caught lapped traffic as Dean decided it was time to pounce and rounded the 6Q coming off turn two and lead the field home in the 99Q King Hawk.

Absolute blinder of a run by Brock Dean to break his streak of 2nds for the season, the Bob Baker Challenge was drawn however as Anthony Chaffey wasn’t at the previous round the $500 cash goes back into Bob’s pocket and onto Toowoomba!

Notable mentions would have to go to The Chaff though putting on a show and a blinder in the feature with Rusty running up high, Matt O Neil took out the ATRS Lucky 7TH place voucher running racers on all four corners he now has a $100 voucher with his name on it.

That’s round 3 in the ATRS Archerfield Midget Series done , run and won so from here we move on back to the Highbanks of the Toowoomba Speedway on December the 5th for round two in the Nexgen Hire/NuPave Asphalt Services Highbank Hussle

When racing is good we all agree it’s good but when you have a bad night at the track the doom and gloom generally gets the team down however every dark cloud will always have a sliver lining.

The Speedy Air Conditioning/Rodney Singleton Racing 3Q Spike Esslinger of Cal Whatmore JNR had one of “those” nights in the recent ATRS Archerfield Midget Series.

The boys were plagued all night with engine gremlins which would see their patience tested however that didn’t dent their determination to make the grids each time and it was grid 16 – lucky last which delivered the rewards of the effort as the pill for 16 was drawn in the Bob Baker Challenge , taking the green Whatmore JNR knew the car wasn’t right and headed infield with a lap on the board … it was only after the race he found out they were the recipients of the BBC $500 cash !.

The Bob Baker Challenge is easy ….. run the show before , 16 or more take the green in the feature and if your feature grid pill is drawn you win $500 no questions asked !

Huge thanks to Bob Baker for supporting the Midgets and helping maintain the car count if anyone is interested in being able to win the BBC its even easier ….. nominate now !

Brock Dean is waiting for the text to add you into the grids for our next show on the 16th at Archerfield Speedway there were 22 noms for round two with some not being able to make it some crashed out some got too hot under the hood however 16 hit the track for the previous feature ….. are you one of them ??

Well Done the the 3Q Team see you at the next show
