A MASSIVE crowd was on hand for Warrnambool and District Drag Racing Association’s second meeting of the season, with 700 spectators stepping through the gate on Sunday.
The second part of a south-west double-header on the weekend – following on from a meeting at Portland’s South Coast Raceway on Saturday – the WADDRA meeting drew nine bikes, 53 racers and 16 burnout cars.
Ross Jervies took out the quick 16 event, with Jason Jenkins the runner-up.
Brent McCosh won the super sedans ahead of Ben Curran, while Ian Collins took out the bikes, with Luke Riordan runner-up.
John Scullion claimed a win in the burnout competition, with Brett Parkes second.
Tony Frost said with the quality of racing and the number of spectators, the day exceeded expectations.
“It was a top day, we had a huge crowd,” he said.

Frost said the club was in negotiations with council to try to arrange a date for a third meeting for WADDRA after its second meeting was rained out last month.
“It’s good to see everyone coming out and supporting our event, it’s great for the club,” he said.
