Desert Nationals delivers on the national Stage
The 2015/2016 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series is off to a flying start following the 2015 Desert Nationals at Alice Springs Inland Dragway.
While the racers were the stars of the show, the volunteers of the Central Australian Drag Racing Association (CADRA) were gracious hosts delivering a quality event in front of a healthy Red Centre crowd.
Local Alice Springs resident Brian Moore scored a popular win in Modified Bike taking home his first ever ANDRA Christmas Tree trophy in a final against 2014 Desert Nationals winner Bryan Finn.
Finn broke out going quicker than his 7.15 second dial in with a 7.112 ET allowing Moore to the hometown win with a 6.796 ET at 93.56 mph on a 660 dial in.
“I don’t know what to say it’s just been an awesome weekend,” said Moore. “I was lucky that Finny broke out because I had drama with my air shifter so I’m very happy. Words can’t describe it.
“Once again CADRA put on an awesome show together with Motorsports NT. Everyone put in, I know how hard everyone has worked here to get it going, everyone seems happy and the track was fantastic.”
Moore eliminated Gordon Crawford and Malcolm Price before a solo effort saw him into the final.
The Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series now moves on to Adelaide for Round 2 at the 2015 Springnationals October 17-18.
Tasmania’s Shane Walker topped Modified Bike from Brian Hotker, Gordon Crawford, Brian Moore, Don Baird, Wayne Patterson, Malcolm Price, 2014 Desert Nationals winner Bryan Finn, Derryn McGregor and Greg Oberti.
