Weston Racing is looking forward to the 43rd Westernationals after a good performance in the opening Top Alcohol championship round in Perth.
Weston top qualified in his dragster by three thousandths of a second from Gary Phillips with a 5.562 at 252.80mph. He got through to the semi-finals before losing to Craig Glassby.
“The engine still has a bit left in the old girl and we hope to be straight back where we left off and maybe reset the record on the way,” said Weston.
“It’s going to be a tough field with all the Competition class racing together, blown vehicles and natural aspirated vehicles will be competing to qualify in the field of 16. We assume there will be over 20 vehicles in this class.
“We are hoping to go one better this year as we came runner up at this event last year. The new combo seems to be working very well and the team seems to have a handle on it.”
The event is held over the Labour Day long weekend so if you are at the track Weston Racing wants you to make sure you come down to see the team.
“We also have new ‘Race Face’ cards available to hand out for the people collecting them,” Weston said.
“Thanks to all my sponsors: Compressor Valve Services, Darling Downs Drilling, Stewarts Pest Control, The Boat Business and Pirtek Blackwater and his crew; Aidan Duncan, Mark Shorto, Brad Anesty, Troy Alford, Richard and Elaine Weston, Bob Marlow, Kayla Vogel and Karen Hildebrandt.”
