The Final was one of two halves, with Stratford making the break first then Rotorua finding and taking over the leaders and sucessfully grabbing the chequered flag for the Win.
Hawkes Bay Superstocks was all action, going down to the final heat, with a little bit of stirring and some blocking tactics adding to the final out come. 16B Steve Jude taking the title by just one point over 22B Zach Lawrence and a runoff for 3rd between 87B Thomas Stanaway and 97R Pat Westbury. Thomas out smarting Westbury to take 3rd place overall.
