David Smith of Victoria has won a thrilling and dramatic Australian Modified Production Title at Timmis Speedway, Mildura.
Only six cars finished the gruelling 40 laps, with Nathan Macdonald, Wayne Ramsdale, Peter Fraser, Brett Baxter and Mark Carlin the only other cars to finish.
In an extraordinary race, five cars withdrew from the race on lap 24 during a routine stoppage, including the lead three cars at the time.
In a desperate and thrilling final few laps, the drivers all realised there were not many cars left and the race intensified, with five drivers fighting for the win. Mark Carlins amazing run through the C Main and B Main, almost paid off but with three laps to go the car expired, and he would finish sixth after a horror run on Friday night.
David Smith held off the many advances by Nathan Macdonald of Queensland in the concluding stages, with Smith winning by just 0.536. Wayne Ramsdale finished third, with Peter Fraser of Western Australia a close fourth.
