From the Eyes of Barry Sklenars…..

With Superstock entries from Auckland, Waikato, Gisborne, Rotorua, Palmerston North, Wanganui, Stratford, Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch, the promise of a great race meeting was anticipated along with a dose of good Hawkes Bay weather.
54 cars fronted for the first night of qualifying (Friday), divided into three groups of 18 cars each.
As expected, the racing was fast and furious with all drivers trying to score maximum points in each of their three races, with 8 cars from each Group qualifying for the next night’s Finals.
Green Group resulted in a win to 71P Simon Joblin with 48 points, 2nd 581P Jordan Dare 46 points, 3rd 94P William Humphries 44 points, 4th equal 10G Peter Rees and 99A Carl Chestnut 40 points, 6th 31P Andy McCabe 35 points, 7th equal 10N Alex Bright and 66S Clint Hill 31 points.
Blue Group was won by 52P Scott Joblin 44 points, 2nd equal 38R Ken Hunter, 95P Clive Elliott, 118R Bryce Steiner & 591P Wayne Hemi all on 37 points, 6th equal 5M Blake Dykstra & 16B Steve Jude 36 points, 8th 74P Chev Taniwha 35 points.
White Group winner was 127G Ethan Rees 50 points, 2nd 85H Jared Wade 47 points, 3rd 1NZ Shane Harwood 46 points, 4th 2NZ Jason Long 44 points, 5th 31G Gary Davis 42 points, 6th 62P Adam Joblin 39 points, 7th 71P Shane Mellsop 38 points, 8th 57A Aidan Eustace 37 points.
24 of the 26 Finalists were confirmed.
The second night (Saturday) saw 5 cars withdraw from the Non Qualifiers Repercharge event, with 24 starters gridded up in Group points order.
97R Pat Westbury, (Blue Group) with 32 points started on pole, and 27B Shane Warner (Green Group) with 30 points started grid 2.
A good start by both cars saw Warner get a break on Westbury, with these two finishing in that order at flag time.
With Westbury and Warner filling the last two slots in the Finals grids, the race for the GP title was on.
Race One resulted in a win to 2NZ Jason Long, who started from grid 4.   62P Adam Joblin started grid 7 to finish 2nd with 591P Wayne Hemi the major mover starting from grid 17 and finishing in 3rd place. The other cars making great progress were 10G Peter Rees starting from grid 21 and finishing 6th, 4P Chad Ace starting from grid 25 to finish 7th and 52P Scott Joblin starting from grid 22 to finish 9th.
Race two again resulted in the early grids taking the major placings, with 94P William Humphries starting from grid 3 taking the win from 2nd placed 10G Peter Rees after starting from grid 8 and 581P Jordan Dare 3rd after starting from grid 9. The top points scorers after the first two races had 2NZ Jason Long on 47 points, 10G Peter Rees on 46 points, 591P Wayne Hemi on 44 points, 581P Jordan Dare on 43 points, 52P Scott Joblin on 41 points and 38R Ken Hunter on 40 points.
The third and final race was expected to produce some team tactics between friendly drivers, but this did not eventuate to any great extend.
One of the favourites was 10G Peter Rees who started from grid 11 and was running hot until a chasing 581P Jordan Dare spun Rees as he was exiting the pit corner late in the race. Rees consequently lost about 10 places by the time he re-entered the fray. Obviously Dare was trying to improve his mentor 591P Wayne Hemi’s chances in the title chase.
Meanwhile, the front runners were 118R Bryce Steiner who started from grid 6 and 16B Steve Jude starting from grid 2 – they finished in 1st and 2nd place.
The star of the race was a flying 94P William Humphries who started from grid 21 and finished in 3rd place. 2NZ Jason Long also finished in style after starting from grid 20 and finishing in 5th place. When all the points were tallied, Jason Long was declared the winner on 69 points, with 10G Peter Rees 2nd on 59 points, 94P William Humphries 3rd on 56 points, 591P Wayne Hemi 4th on 55 points, 16B Steve Jude 5th on 54 points and 1NZ Shane Harwood 6th on 53 points.
One of the hardest hitters noted was 10N Alex Bright who dished out several good ones.
There was no second tier competition for this event, with the non qualifiers racing in two Consolation events.
Results – Race One: 1st 96H Scott Redfern, 2nd 46B Quin Ryan, 3rd 87B Thomas Stanaway, 4th 84N Anthony McKenzie, 5th 45R Nick Vallance, 6th 599V Ron Tye.
Race Two: 1st 87B Thomas Stanaway, 2nd 29B Matt Demanser, 3rd 46B Quin Ryan, 4th 84N Anthony McKenzie, 5th 25B Regan O’Brien, 6th 54W Mike Pye.

From the Eyes of the Class Reps…

Superstocks had a good final shakedown for their upcoming NZ Champs meeting at Palmerston North on 2nd and 3rd January.
The 18 entry field included visiting cars of 31P Andy McCabe, 88P Jack Miers and 971P Jayden Ward who were also using this meeting so sort out new cars and setups before the NZ Champs.
A greasy track surface in the first-up race resulted in a good win to 31P Andy McCabe who used his head to slip through from grid 3, and to finish 8 seconds ahead of 2NZ Jason Long (grid 2), closely followed by youngster 136B Maddie Wise, who started from grid 8.
Race 2 saw improving track conditions and a win to 16B Steve Jude from grid 4 who had a clear start after 25B Kairyn O’Brien withdrew from grid 2 after car issues caused his non start. 31P Andy McCabe came through the field in style after starting on grid 12, to finish in second place. 3rd place went to 2NZ Jason Long after a spirited run from grid 10.
Race 3 produced a good win to 136B Maddie Wise after starting on grid 2, but a fast chasing 31P Andy McCabe who started on grid 10, resulted in Wise just pipping McCabe at the flag for the win. 971P Jayden Ward in his brand new car started on grid 3 and finished 3rd behind the two battlers up front.
Race 4 was an extra event to extend the race programme, with 11 cars starting after first-up on the grid.
2NZ Jason Long started from pole and performed a drag race with 16B Steve Jude chasing from grid 2 all the way to the chequered flag.
3rd place went to youngster 24B James Tollison who is improving in the Superstock ranks in his first season.
A few car issues during the night but hopefully the 13 Bay drivers entered in the NZ Champs at Palmerston this weekend will have benefited from this race meeting.
We wish them all the best of luck and good fortune – go the Bay boys!
Production Saloons – Some great racing from Gisborne driver Lloyd Stuart who took 1st place in both the first race and the Feature race for the night.
Hawkes bay driver Gregg Reddington took 1st place in the 2nd race and thrilled the crowd with an impressive wall climb, overall a great nite of racing.
Ministocks ran a Handy Capped Feature Race Sponsored by Valvoline and the Trophies were presented by Steve Williams from Caddy Shack Racing.
The idea was to give those young drivers who don’t usually get the change to race at the front a chance of winning a trophy. A Great confidence booster for the youngsters who received them. Congratulations to the Top Five who all got to take one of the unique trophies home. And a Big Thank you to Steve Williams for supporting the class and Shane Warner for designing and making the trophies.

Race Reports to follow….

From the Eyes of the Class Reps…

Superstocks experienced a greasy track for their first-up race for the Tony McIntosh Memorial trophy on Saturday night.
After much slipping and sliding around, the race time was a slow 6 minutes and 16 seconds – race two was 3 minutes and 15 seconds and race three was 4 minutes and 5 seconds – all over 12 laps.
Andy McCabe 31P started on Grid 3 and cruised through for a good win over Maddie Wise 136B, two seconds behind, with Steve Jude 16B in third place.   Wise started from Grid 4 and Jude from Grid 2.
Race 2 saw first year Superstock driver James Tollison 24B romp away from the field and taking his first chequered flag after starting from Grid 4.
Second was Steve Jude 16B finally getting to grips with his new car, with Wayne Talbot 23B also improving with his new ex Palmerston North car in third place.
The third and Feature race saw a stunning drive from young Maddie Wise 136B to take the win from Thomas Stanaway 87B, with Steve Jude 16B in third.
Wise started from Grid 6, Stanaway from Grid 4 and Jude from Grid 10.
The finally tally of points resulted in a tie for first place between Maddie Wise and Steve Jude, with Andy McCabe 31P in third place.
This is the third time Steve Jude has had a tied winning result – with Thomas Stanaway in 2014/15 season and with Quinn Ryan in 2013/14.
The future talent of Superstocks is becoming evident after good results from Maddie Wise and James Tollison.
MiniStocks had a large field of 28 Cars with visiting Drivers from Gisborne, Rotorua and Palmerston North.
With the Hot Sun in the week and the constant light rain prior to the meeting set for different track conditions each race.
A good drive from the front in race one saw 4B Thomas Rumble-Faram take the Win from 97B Marshall Zachan in second and 6RHB Liam Reid in third place.
We have some talented young drivers in the Bay this year and some smart driving from 53B Tristan Johnson in race two gave him the Win in his first meeting in the “newly loaned” 53B car. (after some regulated placings) although this class has the label as one of the “HotDog” classes, this season is becoming far from it, lots of close racing and clever passing from these young drivers. Watch out MIP the Bay Boys and Girls mean business this year.
The Feature race was taken away by the two visiting Rotorua cars, brothers Ethan & Cayln Clarke 1st & 2nd respectively from 33B Kareena Annan in third.
The Streetstocks dished out the usual stirring and with 3NZ Darren Melling racing his Super Saloon tonight gave the other guys a chance to take the glory.
46B Brent Reddington Winning race 1 & 2 and 23B Shayne Melling taking out the Feature.

The Burger King Pro Dirt Super Saloon series will break new ground this season when American Super Late Model racer Bobby Pierce guests for three rounds.
Pierce (19) from Oakwood Illinois, is the son of racer and chassis builder Bob Pierce, and will take the seat of 24A Ben Harding, that has been re-liveried with Pierce’s colours and number – 32 USA.
In a whistle stop visit, Pierce will contest the Waikakara Park (Nov 26), Meeanee (Dec 2) and  Palmerston North (Dec 3) rounds of the series.
“I am super excited about the upcoming visit to New Zealand,” he said.
“I have been watching some videos on the Super Saloons and the team I will be racing for. It looks extremely different to the Super Late Model that I’m accustomed to, but looks like a lot of fun.”
“I’m very competitive and like to win.  I am looking forward to getting some seat time in the Lucas Oil Harding Motorsport car ahead of my first foray onto New Zealand dirt  so I am comfortable with the car in the hope that my team and I run up front.’’
It isn’t just the racing Pierce is looking forward to.“I am equally excited to see and visit the country. All I’ve heard is how beautiful it is.”
Series promoter Grant Flynn says having one of the best Late Model drivers in the US as part of the series will add to what is already a great spectacle.
‘‘It’s going to lift the intensity of everything we are doing. We have a professional driver, who wants to win. Every time he puts his helmet on, he’s there trying to earn a dollar. “I had a list of drivers who were keen and I thought I’d start at the top. To me, he’s the best driver out there. The fact that he’s won the 2016 World 100, which is pretty much the biggest meeting in the USA, speaks for itself.’’
The deal wouldn’t have gone ahead without the support of Waikaraka, Meeanee and Palmerston North promoters Bruce Robertson and Bryan Puklowski. ‘‘They have been a real driving force and it’s great to have supporters who are backing our class. They can see the benefit of including an International competitor, and they are blown away we have secured such calibre in Bobby.’’
If Pierce’s star wasn’t already on the rise, he really made observers sit up and notice when he became the youngest ever winner of Eldora Speedway’s World 100 in September, which is regarded as Dirt Late Model Racing’s biggest event. He came from 22nd spot in the feature to take the win, and said it would take a long time for the magnitude of the win to sink in.
“I kind of dreamed of this day, and when I cross the finish line, am I going to have tears coming out of my eyes or what. But I didn’t … I didn’t, because I think it’s going to take a while to sink in. To win it for (his family) is awesome,” he said at the time.
Starting in the 11th row, Pierce was inside the top five in the 100-lapper by lap 25, slipped back on a lap-37 restart, then caught and overtook fellow Illinois driver Dennis Erb Jr on the 56th lap to lead the rest of the way.
The win added to the $50,000 Lucas Oil Late Model Series North/South 100 win at Florence Speedway, Kentucky, which was also the track he won is 24th and final feature of the 2016 season, the 50 lap Fall 50 on October 22.
Pierce junior has always been around racing, as a youngster travelling from track to track, securing the prime job of scraping the mud off his dad’s car.
With Pierce senior having the nickname The Tall Cool One, Bobby was quickly christened The Short Cool One.
It was no coincidence that the year Bob vacated the driver’s seat, 2005, was Bobby’s first on the dirt — in a quarter midget.
He left the quarter midget ranks in 2007 and the following season took the wheel of a “kid modified” — full sized modified racers with restricted motors.
At 12 he began racing “Crate Late models” where, in 2009, he won 16 feature races.
By 2010 he was in a fully-fledged late model, and finished 18th in his first World of Outlaws Late Model show in Lincoln, Illinois after securing the final qualifying spot in the consolation race.
