THE Radial class of drag racing has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many of Australia’s top racers competing to be the fastest radial tyred cars in the country.
This unique style of racing involves using radial tires designed for everyday driving instead of slick tires traditionally used in drag racing.
The Kenda 660 Drag Radial Series is Australia’s premier series, featuring guys and girls going head to head in pursuit of the title of the fastest radial tyred cars in the country.
The perfect weather conditions on the weekend made for optimal racing conditions, with the air temperature not too hot for the fans to come out and watch and even better for racers to make more horsepower.
The great crowd in attendance created an electric atmosphere as the racers took to the track to see who would come out on top.
One of the highlights of the event was the addition of the “King of the kids” race for $10k on Friday night.
This exciting new concept proved to be a hit with both young and old alike, with over $30k on the line for the event.
This meant that everyone put it all on the line to win, resulting in some thrilling races throughout the weekend.
As the day progressed, it became clear that the competition was fierce, with many racers putting up impressive times on the track.
However, there were a few standout performances that stole the show, including Jarrod Wood running into the low 3.7 sec range.
The biggest prize for the event was the King of the Kids, and entrants had to earn their keep to compete against the best of the best.
After all the dust had settled, it was a long-time supporter of the Kenda 660 Drag Radial series, Matt Grubisa, who took home the 10k prize pool.
For those interested in keeping up with the events, there are a few events throughout the year, and all the information can be found on the Kenda 660 Drag Radial Series Facebook page.

It’s clear that the Radial class of drag racing is here to stay, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this unique style of racing.
