Series leader Sorrenson fired up

MORE than 100 racers will be on show when the fourth and final round of the Nitro Magazine South Queensland Eighth Mile Drag Racing Series hits Benaraby Raceway on Saturday, September 25.

Local drag racer Scott Sorrenson, who leads the Super Sedan bracket by 14 points following a plethora of strong performances, praised the new series for its appealing approach.

“We got into racing this series as we think it’s just a great idea for racers like us,” he said

“It is all about having fun and close and exciting racing in a relaxed atmosphere.”

The new series has taken sportsman drag racing by storm in 2010 and 33-year-old Sorrenson has been one of its most successful competitors with wins in the opening two rounds of carnage.

“The car and I have certainly responded well to it and we will be doing everything we can to claim the inaugural Super Sedan trophy next weekend.”

The grand finale comes after three rounds of racing, which encompassed events at Warwick Dragway back in March, Roma in May and Willowbank in July.

The current series leaders are Peter Duffy (Andrews Affordable Mowing Classic), Laurie Fitzgerald (R D Williams Excavator Parts Modified), Jakim Wong (Cosmic Enterprises Junior Dragster), Ken Greenough (H D Bitz Modified Bike), Scott Sorrensen (Allstar Batteries Super Sedan) and Lyn Stewart (John William Auto Sales Super Street).
