A chance for #64p Kev Smith to take part in a Championship, as the final round of the $40,000 Superstock Series moves on to palmerston north.

Superstocks
Heat 1
Unfortunately a stuck throttle and a car that was screaming it's nuts off, meant that #64p Smith only made it as far as the pit chute, as Kev was forced to watch from the terraces as #7p Shane Penn stormed round for an impressive victory ahead of #77p Wayne Norris.

Heat 2
#64p Smith was on the front row alongside #12p Peter Locke, and as #12p Locke tried to make the break, #64p Smith slotted into 4th behind the fast moving #58p Bengston and #7p Penn. #12p Locke fell by the wayside half way through, allowing #64p Smith to move up to 3rd, before succumbing late on to #57p Tarrant

Heat 3
#64p Smith took an early spin and ended up at the back of the pack, just in front of the race leaders. 15 x laps later, and #64p Smith was looking mighty quick, and still on the lead lap as he refused to give way to the awesome #7p Penn, who made it 3 out of 3, and looked to be in a class of his own.

Superstock Challenge
The Series winner #5p Ward lined up on pole alongside runner-up; #7b Shane Mellsop, with #71p Kim Lace and #31p Sndy McCabe behind on row2, with #77p Shane Norris and #57p Dave Tarrant making up row3. #7p Shane Penn was on grid 10, with #64p Kev Smith down on grid 21 for the big money shootout.
#7b Mellsop was first to show ahead of #5p Ward, but managed to roll it on lap 4, leaving #5p Ward in the lead ahead of #77p Norris, #58p Bengston and #7p Penn, behind these came #71p Lace, #57p Tarrant, 12p Locke, #9p Brett Hyslop and #64p Smith up to ninth.
An extremely fast race saw #7p Penn show total dominance as he swept through the field for an impressive victory ahead of #5p Ward, with #64p smith improving further for a well earned 6th.
