In Super Comp Jason Simpson continued his tear with his G/GA Probe taking top qualifier and the win against defending champion Wade Moran who bounced back after a disappointing East Coast Thunder result for the team.

 It was a similar story in Competition Bike with Brandon Gosbell earning the double by top qualifying his BB/AB Suzuki just 5 thou over the record and going on to defeat Shaun Soboll in the final.

Supercharged Outlaws finished up with an all dragster final dual between Ryan Van Dyk and Fiona Reed. It was Van Dyk who turned on the win light with a 7.03 on a 7.00 to Reed’s 7.35 on a 7.32 dial in.

Despite dad Patrick Barron winning in Super Sedan at Sydney, the Barron family Beretta dropped into Top Sportsman at this event with Matthew behind the wheel and also went to the final against Daniel Morris. Unfortunately Barron was too quick at the tree by 13 thou with a cherry handing the win to Morris. Barron bounced back the fun Dash for Cash event the following day and went one bigger taking home $2480 with a win.

Joe Khoury snagged a win for the interstaters, the Sydneysider going all the way on his Destroyer, defeating Lisa Skinner in the final round.

Another red light also decided the Super Street final, Daniel Harms was the unlucky cherry picker this time by 2 hundredths giving the win to opponent Shaun Doeblien.

And the pressure was too much in the Junior Dragster final as well with Josh Langridge trying too hard on the tree, picking up a -.010 red light sending Kyle Magner into the winner’s circle.
