Last weekend’s racing at the Kingaroy Speedway attracted national and State champions to battle it out in five categories of dirt track racing.
The highlight of the night was the exciting 20-lap final deciding the Peanut Cup in V8 Dirt Modifieds.
Australian champion Kevin Britten, from Brisbane, and NSW driver Ray Eggins battled it out for the first half of the race with Britten hugging the wall up high and Eggins taking the shortest way around down low.
However, Britten scampered away when Eggins got caught up with a back marker.
Eggins then fought off third placegetter, Queensland driver Klinton Hancey, who also took the high route around the track.
Local driver Brett Barron clocked up some fast times in the heats of the Modifieds, including the second fastest time on the night in Heat 1.
Ipswich teenager Casey O’Connell was the fastest Junior on the night, winning the A-Main and recording the fastest lap time in Heat 3.
The next event at the Kingaroy Speedway will be the Christmas Shootout on December 8 featuring V8 Super Sedans, Wingless Sprints, Modified Sedans and the Queensland title for Lightning Sprints.
