Two huge days and nights of racing culminated with the finals for the Burson Auto Parts Australian Top Fuel Championship and Australian Drag Racing Championship (ADRC) Top Doorslammer and Top Fuel Motorcycle brackets this evening, with the massive crowd clearly pleased with what they saw.

On two wheels, Benny Stevens continued his impressive performances in ADRC Top Fuel Motorcycle to take out the A-Final win over Kevin Gummow, with a 7.074 second pass at 248.48kph over Gummow’s 8.564/185.85kph run. Greg Durack won the B Final on a solo after Chris Matheson was unable to back up after his burnout, while the C Final saw Rob Cassar win over Aaron Deery. In the D Final, Jay Upton took the win over Mark Drew, who did not front.

“We have had an awesome day today! We wanted to be conservative this morning so we tamed it down a bit and the first lap was a 6.55. We got the data we needed and pretty much left the bike the same and repeated for the second run, and the track had turned around really well so we probably should have thrown some more power at it, but we still got through the win on what ended up being a solo,” Stevens said.

“In the final, we were out against Kevin Gummow and we went towards the centre line at about 800 foot – now normally I would have ridden out of something like that, but I didn’t want to risk losing the final, so I got off the throttle, got a bit close to the line, flicked the bike across and came through for the win.

“I have won two Goldenstates before with two Silver Christmas Trees, so to be able to get a Gold ANDRA Christmas Tree is fantastic, it is something I have wanted to achieve for many years so to finally have that dream come true is absolutely awesome. My whole team is absolutely stoked to win the event.

“It was awesome to have four feature brackets here this weekend and to be a part of that – the Perth Motorplex did an awesome job to host the event and I am very thankful for the track staff and the volunteers and their efforts.

“Thank you also to our sponsors, Worx Equipment, AAA Demolition and Tree Services, Racecraft, Darling Downs Drilling, Bakers Creek Harvesting, West Coast Air, TRP, CJD Trucks, Redline Synthetic Oil, Gardiner Engineering, MDR Trans, Nelg’s Ali Mods, Applied Automotive Performance Engines and The Gate Bar and Bistro.”
