Australia’s wrap around 2018-19 400 Thunder Professional Drag Racing Series had about as a dramatic season conclusion possible...

A “winner-take all” Top Fuel final (above) capped off the 52nd running of the Gulf Western Oil Winternationals held at fabled Willowbank Raceway.  Sydney’s Wayne Newby, driving for team owner and business magnate Santo Rapisarda, clinched his second career 400 Thunder Top Fuel Championship — when the win light came on in his lane.

Wayne Newby & Santo Rapisarda.

Pro Slammer winner – Steven Ham
