ANDRA and 400 Thunder are running their own separate series, so two separate championships and two separate champions.
I am sure the extra prize money is for incentive as well to enter the Nationals. According to Calder they already have the required number of entries in all Group One classes except Top Bike for the Nationals.
We will look at the calenders, but it is hard to keep track as event dates keep changing we have found.
As for points, ANDRA championship points are pretty easy to find on the ANDRA website, as for 400 Thunder, if you find them let us know, we are yet to be advised of what their point structure is or the points table as it stands.
There is a wrap up from Benaraby, the online result website fell over during the event.
You can now see complete results here.

Very sad news just received is that Australian Pro Stock pioneer Kevin Flaherty passed away this morning after a short battle with illness. Kevin along with son Greg dominated Pro Stock in their aptly named "Shotgun" Falcons and were champion target shooters. Another legend has passed R.I.P
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of much loved NSW Modified racer Coral Dyer following a long battle with cancer. Despite doctors' predictions, Coral chose to fight the disease by taking up drag racing, surpassing all expectations and becoming an inspiration at the track. In 2010 after a stint in a HAMBster, Coral stepped into a mid seven second dragster with success, winning a round of the NSW Track Championship and she continued to race until April this year. She earned respect not only with her attitude but racing toughness and her lovely personality will be missed in the pits by everyone who knew her. Drag News Australia wishes to pass on their deepest sympathies to Coral's husband John and the rest of Coral's family and friends. RIP.
VALE - Mal Gower.
Popular NSW Supercharged Outlaw racer Mal Gower passed away last night succumbing to cancer. His A40 Austin Ute "Swamp Rat" was a head turner in the 90's before stepping it up to Supercharged Outlaws. He then moved into a couple of blown altereds, his current Toppolino bodied beast is one of the wildest going around, and he knew how to torture the tyres in the burnouts, it also carded his first six second 200mph runs.
Mal's son Jason races in Super Sedan and is also the father of NRL star Craig Gower.
Drag News Australia staff would like to extend their deepest sympathies and condolences to all of Mal's family and friends at this time.
RIP Mal Gower #55
