In Supercharged Outlaws it was a Loy family clean sweep, Chris Loy in his dragster was the top qualifier and runner up in the class.


John Loy took home the win with his Torana.


Extreme Sedan for the almost out of control had Justin Cook’s 2JZ Chevy ute the quickest but it was Niki Hepburn in that wild turbo Gemini with a big block shoe horned in taking the event win.


Neil Maxwell was the runner up with the Probe.


A radial class was thrown in for those game enough, radial racing is all the rage overseas right now in the Pro Street scene and growing in popularity here for those who like even more of a challenge.
