The Kenda 660 Drag Radial series is a four-part series with the finale of the series, the Radial Riot hitting the track this September at Willowbank Raceway. Entrants from all around Australia, from as far away as Perth will be fighting it out on track to be crowned the champion of their bracket.

“It’s such an exciting time in the sport, we have a diverse range of entrants and the chase for the first racer to run 200mph is on. We have a couple of entrants quite close to cracking the milestone and we are hoping we can make history at Radial Riot in a couple of weeks”, said co-series promoter Scott Harker.

“All the main players for the event are within close reach of the Championship, and with over 40k up for grabs in prize money they will all be pushing the limits hard. This creates great conditions for some exciting racing, you never know what is going to happen next, will the car run a (personal best) or will it be sent sky high with a massive wheel stand”, continues Justin Simpson, co-series promoter.
