Radial Riot unfortunately ended up being rained out, but we now have the declared event winners via count back, and also able to reveal who took home the Title Belts as Kenda Tires 660 Drag Radial Series champions.
You can review what happened in testing and qualifying with these below links.
Several unfortunate accidents on race day pushed the schedule back well into the night, before some precipitation then fell from the skies calling the event during round three of proceedings.
In Outlaw Radial, Wade Wagstaff upset himself with a romping 3.67 thrown away by a red light against John Ricca, the quickest pass in a round that rained threes, including at 3.80 from Jarrod Wood – the quickest small block pass in Australia from the blown El Diablo Camaro.
Wagstaff bounced back in round two for low ET of the round again at 3.70 beating Wood. The procharged Camaro of Daniel Szabolics dropped a 3.83, going two for two to that point, along with Paul Merry who was killing it with consistency out of his turbo Nova.
In the round three fight for a final shot, Szabolics got the job done against Wood with a 3.78, meanwhile in the other lane there was a scary moment when the Wood Camaro crossed lanes and hit the concrete in a solid scrape. The final pairing between Merry and Wagstaff was to decide the other would-be finalist, this ended up being anti-climatic with Merry timed out at the tree.
Szabolics was declared the event winner on countback, but the literal championship belt went around the waist of Wagstaff.
In other classes, Steve Bezzina’s killer XW claimed the win over the bad ass twin turbo big block RX3 of Terry Androutsos in Outlaw 275. Tony Webb resorted to his old LJ to finish the meet, but it was enough to take the title.
Over in Outlaw 235, Scott Cortina doubled up, being awarded the event win over Simon “Candles” O’Carroll, and the championship.
Likewise is OG 315, James Horan got the black ute sorted when it counted to take the event win and championship. Clint Hepburn made a nice return to the track in his Gemini finishing as runner up.
John Elfes was another double up winner, the CV Performance VT taking out the championship and event win in OG 275. Pauli Fuller the runner-up.
Into the fixed index classes, and in Radial Renegade 5.50, Jason Seng picked up the dollars for the event win over ‘Disco’ Dean Ferris, but Disco danced away with the championship.
The Radial Ruckus 5.80 bracket saw the Gemini of Reece Carkeet take the win over Michael Adams, but it was Nick Baxter who went home with the title belt.
Shane Locke held up the title belt in Radial Rumble 6.40, however the event win fell to Chris Sword over Andy Fensom.
Finally, Radial Rebels 7.00 closes out list of brackets with Ron Holz winning on the night over Ian Clifford, and Phillip Petrovic reigning supreme for the championship.
