BROWN WINS THE 50 !

New South Welshman Kaidon Brown continued his Queensland Domination in the recent Nexgen/RAW Metal Corp BNE 50 Lapper /Jim Holden Classic at Archerfield Speedway.

Following up from the feature event victory in Toowoomba at Easter Brown was all class hitting the lead in the 50 lap main show during lap 18 and never looked back as the rest of the field fought for the minors.

The Hunter Valley Hurricane would emerge the highest points scorer after the round of heats and drew marble “10” inverting him to P10 as the field chose who started beside them eventually working up to the exclusive P1 starting spot that was handed to Zac MacDonald in the 23Q Spike Hawk.

Newly crowned Queensland and Australian Champion in the Compact Speedcar division Bodie Smith in the 77Q Spike kicked the nights dash for cash festivities underway with a win in the Sidtec Sedan Set ups and Supplies heat race one Zac MacDonald brought the 23Q home in second as Darren Vine in the MVT 19Q rocket crossed in 3rd the rest of the field all battled the fast pace jostling and dancing all over the very hooky surface, Brock Dean in fourth lead home Rooke, Brown , Singleton, Doyle and Tom Clauss back from his last outing tear up rounded out the field.

Nathan Smee parked the GRD Eagle #14N car on the podium in the United Waste Services heat race number two ahead of the 78Q BOSS Chassis car of Rusty Whittaker and recovering from a hot lap session wall lick was “The Bandit” Brad Dawson in third, Adam Clarke, Scotty Farmer and Nathan Mathers the only recorded finishers in this 8 lapper as Cal Whatmore JNR would be done for evening with oil tank damage sustained in a bingle with Tim Farrell who was now parked on the grass along with what appeared to be an engine miss firing 69Q of Gary Hudson.

The Nexgen Hire heat race three saw Kaidon Brown begin to hit his strides in the 97V King Hawk with a hard fought win over another King hawk this time in the hands of Brock Dean as Mitchell Rooke bagged $25 for his third place, Singleton, Clauss, Smith, MacDonald and Vine rounded out the field as Scott Doyle’s night ended on lap 3 with what turned out to be an engine oil line fire under the hood.

Adam Clarke was another contender beginning to show just how strong he was going to be-come the big dance time winning the fourth and final Fword Speedshop heat race as Whittaker bagged another second ahead of a blistering Nathan Smee in third, Scotty Farmer brought home the remaining runners of Farrell, Dawson and Mathers.

MacDonald lead the field into turn one however seemed to drift up track arm wrestling with Bodie Smith from P2 he opened the door for the inside line of Singleton, Whittaker and Farmer to rocket through as Whittaker was the winner of that battle for the same real estate coming out of turn two in the lead and began to roll off the laps in clear air as Brown , Clarke and Smee were working the field moving forward , Scotty Farmer brought on the yellows and tagged onto the rear of the bus after a spin , Tim Farrell came to halt in turns one and two with a differential problem and would see him infield along with Tom Clauss who pulled up stumps after 6 laps and Bodie Smith out after one.

Brown hit the lead finally pulling off a clean move past Whittaker and never looked back at the 18th lap point as Whittaker had now fallen victim to not only a major head cold but now the cars of Smee and Clarke slotting the 78Q into fourth the remaining laps were all very text book and fast both Mathers and MacDonald headed infield with 48 on the board as did Dawson and Whittaker just one lap later.

Brown crossed the victor parking the King 97V in Victory Lane in front of the NSW clean sweep of Clarke and Smee in third.

The best of the Queenslanders and putting on superb steer was Mitchell Rooke in the 3Q keeping out of trouble and running some quick clean laps ahead of Farmer who had worked his way back to the pointy end all but the hard way, Brock Dean was recorded in sixth after the 50 lap duration ahead of the 46Q Aggressor with Chris Singleton at the helm.

Adam Clarke being the highest point’s scorer bagged the Queensland Speedway Spares “Highest Points Scorer” voucher as Rusty Whittaker and Kaidon Brown both had a good stab at the lap money on offer.

Well done to The Captain Chris Singleton for winning the American Tire and Racing Services “Lucky 7th” place right rear tyre award as well !

Huge thanks to Dylan Byrne from Nexgen Hire and Todd Wanless from RAW Metal Corp as the naming right sponsors of the even.

Thanks also to Ron Wanless for the extra prizemoney addition adding to the overall purse in the 50 Lapper/Jim Holden Classic.

YOUNG BROWNDOG SLAYS THE NEW TOOWOOMBA SURFACE

Sydney’s Kaidon Brown carved up the new surface at the Hi Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway recently in his TFH King Hawk 97V knocking recent lap record holder Darren Vine off the boards with a 12.403!

Brock Dean opened the nights trips to victory lane in the Aliweld 8Q King Hawk after leading the 11-car field home in heat one followed by Darren Vine back in the turbo Esslinger MVT 19Q AS Brown rounded out the top three.

The Flying Fish Scotty Farmer was next to cross in the 22Q NLT Australia Spike Esslinger , Bradley Harrisons NuPave TRD 21Q Bullet was in fifth just ahead of the United Waste Services Eagle of Tim Farrell, Ricky Robinson in the BW Fabrication Breka Gaerte 56Q crossed in seventh as the eighth place getter Nathan Mathers in the 18Q Inksane Tattoo Artist Eagle Esslinger brought across the line the 36Q Spike Gaerte of Cal Whatmore JNR, Audie Malt in the 27Q Spike Gaerte and rounding out the field was Lachy Paulger in the 37Q Eagle Gaerte machine.

Kaidon Brown returned service in the second and final “all in” heat bagging the victory over Dean and Farrell.

Scotty Farmer banked another fourth place and was pursued by Robinson, Whatmore JNR, Vine, Mathers, Paulger as Harrison was the only recorded DNF.
Unfortunately, we had lost the 27Q Malt car due to a suspected oil pressure concern.

With just one point splitting the duo of Brown and Dean it was Kaidon to lead the field to the flag showing the dominant hand in the all King Hawk front row
Farmer and Vine filled the second row from P3 and 4, Farrell and Robinson were also having a great night banking enough points to occupy row three, Harrison and Mathers filled P7 and 8 just in front of the Gaerte Gang of Whatmore JNR and Paulger who rounded out the ten-car field.

At the drop of the green Brown put the hammer down and checked out as the rest of the field jostled into racing lines the laps counted down it appeared the remaining 9 starters had nothing to offer the flying youngster as he went on to take victory and park his TFH/Indy Race Parts 97V in victory lane.

Brock Dean came home in second ahead of third place Scotty Farmer, Brad Harrison notched up another “Lucky 4th” Place Revolution Race Gear Sunshine Coast voucher for his efforts, Tim Farrell crossed in 5th, Whatmore Jnr was the “Mover and Shaker” from P9 up to 6th at the flag ahead of Vine, Mathers, Robinson and Paulger rounded out the feature field.

Huge thanks to Todd Wanless and his RAW Metal Corp for backing the Two Track Challenge it was unfortunate that mother nature claimed the win on the first night however very promising signs for this Easter series to continue are strong.

Thanks also to the cars who made the trek up the hill even after the weather wasn’t looking flash for night two and the officials volunteering their time for another history making event.

Our next show is back at Archerfield on May the 11th for the Nexgen/Glenn Wright Painting BNE 50 lapper but not before a large number of Queensland Cars head south to Valvoline Raceway Parramatta for the NSW State Title on the 27th then the double header night which is the NSW 50 Lapper on Friday the 3rd and Saturday the 4th.

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.

There is no tyre rule, no club points or nomination fee on these two nights.
