Close racing and all results are here
MOTOR SPORT: Gladstone drivers and riders featured prominently across most classes in round six of the Central Queensland Drag Racing Association Championships on Saturday.
Mitchell Ward had the third best dial-in time in the Modified Bike category behind Antony Duncan and winner Russell Bell.
Benaraby Dragway president Lee Davis said hot weather delayed racing by an hour but spectator numbers were healthy.
"At one stage the track surface temperature reached 68 degrees,” Davis said.
The high temperatures did not however detract from the hot action and Gladstone driver Craig McVie took advantage in the Super Street to win that category ahead of Mark Kleinert and Janelle Chadwick.
"Dumac Engineering came on board as a sponsor and offered a cash prize for best reaction time in Super Street,” Davis said.
"This was taken out by Gladstone's Brett Kelly in his XB Hardtop.”
The Twins class winner was Gladstone's Shannon Josefski with the runner-up and top qualifier awards won by Phil Earl.
Youngster Hunter Oliver impressed in the Junior Bike and Junior Dragster categories.
Round seven of the CQDRA is on Saturday, October 28.
