As we head into the final day of Street Machine Drag Challenge at Calder Park Raceway, Bubba Medlyn in the VH Commodore is still out in front of the Turbosmart Outlaw Blown class and the event overall. Behind him in the overall standings is Adam Rogash, who leads Haltech Radial Blown, followed in close proximity by Mark Drew, Terry Seng and Jarrod Wood.
For those who are just joining us, Drag Challenge is a five-day event, with racers competing at five tracks and driving unassisted between each for some 1500km. The standings in the tyre classes are calculated by adding together each racer’s best timeslip from each track.
In Tuff Mounts DYO, the winner will be the racer with the smallest spread between their quickest and slowest nominated timeslips. Benny Phillips remains out in front in this class, although Alysha Teale has snuck in front of John Kerr to claim second place.
Racing continues today at Calder Park Raceway, from 4pm until 9pm. Entry is $25 and we’d love to see you there.
