Punters and racers were treated to many new faces in competition this round with one group of Tamworth drag racers including Benaraby Dragway in their 10,000km road trip which included Darwin, Alice Springs, Benaraby and Warwick as their last stop on their way back to the country NSW town. They definitely didn't leave disappointed and were glad they included Benaraby on their must-do list.
