The Derek Dunne memorial feature on Saturday night for modified cars certainly lived up to its hard reputation.
Craig Williams added his name to the trophy for the fifth time at Carrick in what was his toughest win to date.
Brad Herbert started from pole position and led for the majority of the 20 laps.
Williams had stayed close behind, but in challenging Herbert he had the difficult task of defending his position from Trent Quillerat.
It was a war of attrition in the end, as only six cars running at one-third race distance such was the intensity.
The sprintcar final had a thrilling conclusion, which saw the field numbers decimated in the 30-lap journey.
Kurt Luttrell led early, but he went wide eight laps from home passing a back marker.
Jock Goodyer and Jason Redpath both capitalised and went past Luttrell.
Redpath’s car pulled some massive wheelstands as he hunted Goodyer.
Luttrell was also fired up, however, he couldn’t close the gap. Goodyer and Redpath were close together and brought the crowd to its feet as they both wanted the win.
Redpath went high on the track with a bold passing move in turn three.
The two cars collided and Goodyer’s car spun across the line on its wheels, which is unheard of in sprintcar racing. Redpath in the end scored a stunning win whereas Luttrell finished third.
The Tassie Sixes racing was another hard fought affair.
Sadly heavy contact in turn one careened pole-sitter Peter Johnston’s car hard into the concrete wall, destroying the vehicle. Johnston walked away from it all unharmed.
Dwaine Sonners led the race early from Mark Bryant and Caide Bryant.
Sonners had an uncharacteristic spin and was sent to the rear. Midway through the race, Bryant spun in the midst of attempting a pass.
Claire Johnston worked her way into third, however she would be passed by Paul Howard, who had started from the rear.
Mark Bryant had opened a handy lead to take victory from Howard and Sonners.
The junior new star final was dominated by Sharni Farrell after starting third.
Decisive passing moves put her in the lead early from Tayla Jetson and Lachie Robins. But Farrell then simply drove away from them.
The junior top stars had a thrilling race where Cody Gay won from Jayden Triffett, while Hannah Coleman had a hectic race fending off Mitch Colgan for third.
A huge field of AMCA saw another hard battle, with more cars on the infield than on track at the end.
Adrian Bassett took a strong win from Rodney Bassett and Dennis Davidson.
Mitchell Freeman won the speedcars ahead of Brock Webster and Geoff Henri.
