Despite threatening weather a sensational night of action kept a strong crowd entertained at Carrick Speedway right until the last race.
The Queen of Carrick was a hard-fought race with the 20 qualifiers racing the street stocks in reverse direction for the 20-lap final.
Mel Collins and Terri Farrell would start on the front row with Stacey Jeffrey and Claire Johnston on row two. Collins jumped away early with Farrell starting to pick up pace and close the gap on lap three.
Farrell slowed with ignition problems and despite attempting to continue dropped out of contention as Claire Coleman and Alysia Riley moved ahead of Johnston.
They went three wide on lap eight while passing a back-marker sending Riley into the wall and out of the race.
Despite several restarts Collins kept her cool to win her second crown from Coleman. Kayla McKendrick beat Danielle Batchelor to grab third.
The inaugural Ricky Briggs memorial for Tassie sixes lived up to the hype. Peter Johnston qualified on pole position only to have Luke Wilson pass him on the outside.
Wilson would be brought back to the field after several cautions throughout the race. Johnston and Wilson raced side by side toward the end of the race on numerous occasions with Johnston finally getting by with several laps remaining.
Despite a late outside challenge Johnston took another well deserved win from Wilson and Mark Bryant third.

Brock Webster won the speedcars in convincing style from Luke Redpath and Mitchell Freeman.
