IT will be last-in best-dressed, at least until the very end, at tomorrow night’s Street Stocks Eliminator Cup at Redline Raceway.
The Buninyong circuit is hosting its first street stocks eliminator race, with 44 cars entered for the feature event.
However, during the final they will be culled to 16 runners and then, after a change of direction on the track, to just eight for the final 15 laps of the race.
“It gives the best blokes in the field the best chance without the slowest cars to get in the road,” Wendouree-based driver Jack Bishop said.
“It might not help me exactly but it gets the big boys up into it in the last 10 or so laps.”
Bishop, driving a VT Commodore, admits he is an outside chance at best of avoiding the axe.
The drivers will race heats in order to qualify for the Duo Mobile Eliminator final, with 18 going straight into the main event in qualifying order and the top six from the last-chance B Main tagged onto the back of the field.
The final runs 10 laps before all but the top 16 are eliminated. Ten laps later a further eight will be knocked out before a sprint to the line for the $1500 purse.
Among the entries are current King of the Mountain Anthony Beare, who is the only man to hold the Tasmanian, West Australian, Victorian, South Australian and Northern Territory street stock championships at the same time.
Gates open at 1pm for a 4.30pm start.
