Not One, Not Two but Three Queensland titleholders are on the one program at Autobarn Carina Speedway this Saturday night, 12th June.

 

Disappointingly, Super Stockers and Nostalgia Sedans have been omitted from the program because of insufficient nominations. Perhaps the Super Stockers can be excused as they come from Rockhampton and Rocky has not raced for some time and more than likely the cars have been garaged for the off season. As for the Nostalgias, well they have some sorting out to do before next season as numbers are critical for getting a start.

 

An SOS was sent out to the ever popular Production Sedans to supplement the program. Hello, what a remarkable response at such short notice, 16 nominations. These guys and gals do not disappoint with their keenness to race. First to nominate was Gladstones, and BWR Machinery series winner, Richard Cook, then the nominations kept coming. Heading the list is A1/ Q1 Joel Berkley, Richard Cooks sparring partner. Talking about sparring partners, Sunshine Coasts Adrian Stott and Blackwaters Michael Larsen kept everyone honest last meeting. Add Maryborough’s Brendon Bayfield and Tanya Mathews, Kingaroy’s Brett Barron and Charlotte Christensen, Gympie’s Dennis Kay and Steven Spence, Rocky’s Lachlan Seawright and Murray Batley and Cabooltures TJ Horne and you can be assured of fast, close racing. Brendan Parker and Dan Cook are on the improve and are now rubbing doors with the best.

 

Modlites make a welcome return to Carina after a long absence, headed by the new Queensland Champion, Bundaberg’s Q1, Casey Collins. Bundy drivers Neil Gregson, Kurt Grambower and Jaydn Stone make up the field of nine but will have stiff competition from the experienced Klinton Hancey and Terry Leerentveld. Hopefully, we will see more of these speedy machines next season. 

 

The Fixit Auto Wreckers Street Stock Series final round of 19 starters sees only 35 points separating Peter Thompson, Kingaroy’s Nathan Barbeler and Bundy’s Kane Heidke. Throw in Bundy’s Boof Dunbabin and Brandon Hough, Rocky’s Braith Hogan, Ken Carroll and John Roycroft, and Toowoomba’s John Stoward, then we should see some close racing. Once again, the 5 placegetters chasing the $1000.00 (1st), $700.00 (2nd), $500.00 (3rd), $200.00 (4th))and $100.00 (5th) will not be known till the chequered flag drops in the feature race. Stan Petersen is having his usual once a season drive while Mike Wenham and Beau Peiters, Bundy and Isaac Irntner, Maryborough are making their first appearance at Carina. Big improver has been Chris Walden.

 

What can you say about the Juniors as they have turned up in numbers once again. The Top Stars field of 12 is headed by the Qld Champion, Gympies Q1, Aidan Rigby and QLD title runner up, Maryborough’s Kaine Richters. Both Billy MacDonald and Kurtis Peall will be out to get a win over Richters as they have chased him most feature races. Josh Rigby finished third in the J.A Toft Series behind Richters and Peall and is always in the placings. Congratulations to Josh on graduating from the Juniors as this is his last race meeting as a Junior having reached the cut off age before next season. The Rigby brothers never miss a meeting here and it will be interesting to see what Josh drives onto the track next season. The cat among the pidgeons will be Lismores Jaiden Santin, a top performer down south and first appearance at Carina. Bohdi Russ, Mitch Wogandt and Patrick Ray will be looking for a change of luck.

 

With the girls outnumbering the boys in the 18 nominations received in New Stars, leading the girls lineup is Abby Smith and Sophie Montgomerie. However, in the boys, AJ MacDonald is hitting form at the right time and should receive plenty of opposition from Maryborough’s Cooper Flynn and Rocky’s Liam Cameron. Talking about the girls, Lismores Sophie Santin, sister to Jaiden and her first appearance, is another top performer down south and is sure to make it difficult for Flynn and MacDonald. Chief Steward Sean Butcher will keep a close eye, as always, on all the racing as one driver last meeting was relegated two positions in a couple of races for infringements. Disqualifications, especially relegated to the infield, ruin any chance of success so please be patient, especially amongst the slower cars.

 

A small field of six Late Models will fight it out. Mark Pagel, Carter Armstrong and Steve Van Zeeland have always performed well at Carina and, providing some previous handling issues have been rectified, should make for fast, close racing.

 

Sean, Dave and Barry thank all the competitors for supporting the finale of the 2010/21 season at Autobarn Carina International Speedway, especially the Proddies.

Remember: Hot action, cool night. So come prepared for both.

Keep an eye out for some very exciting news regarding next season. Details will be released as events are confirmed.
