Big turnout for drags

AN overwhelming turnout at the Palmyra Dragway lastweekend showed the region’s support for embattled farmers.

The 2 Envious Car Club teamed up with Mackay Host Li- ons to stage the “Drag the Farmers Out of Drought” event.

Even with overcast conditions, the crowds came in droves, show- ing up to enjoy the spectacle, and participate in raffle prizes, dyno, show and shine and of course the drag races.

More than $6900 was raised for the charity event, and organ- isers have said there is still more to count!

With winners the dyno-like Adam Rohlf being awarded with Encouragement award most pow- erful NA going to Wade Tucakov- ic and the most powerful force going to Clayton Zarby.

While the drag awards went to Naomi whitfeild for best reac- tion time, Vanessa Rohdman for the fastest bike, Luke Rosadi for the fastest car, Fasters 4x4 went to Christina Wilkson and the Encouragement award going to Klayton Gorman.

2 Envious Car Club organisers, Sara Mattson and Wade Tucakov- ic (pictured) said the event had drawn one of the largest crowds and biggest contingents of drag racers that they had seen.

“The weather sort of scared a few people away especially in the morning. It was a slow start be- cause we thought it was going to rain this is our fourth go at this,” Wade said.

“Everything went off without a hitch and it was awesome,” Sara said.

“Our aim was to get everyone out and racing their cars and put- ting their cars in the dyno and the show and shine, and I think we succeeded.”
