Pro Stock heroes line up for Pro Street Shootout this weekend
Article Date: 11 September 2012
This weekend’s Pro Street Shootout will play host to a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the professional Pro Stock ranks when it hits Queensland’s premier drag racing facility, Willowbank Raceway, on Saturday 15 September.
Popular brother and sister duo Shane and Kirsten Tucker will be joined on track by fellow ANDRA Pro Series pilots Lee Bektash, Wayne Daley and John Galea in the Pro Stock category of the Australian Pro Street Association event.
The Pro Series star power isn’t limited to the Pro Stock bracket either, with Top Alcohol favourite John Cannuli – who is married to Kirsten Tucker – set to take on the 10.5 Outlaw bracket.
“The Pro Stock bracket is a special edition category for this weekend’s Pro Street shootout, and it is going to be a real crowd-pleaser!” said event organiser Johnny Wilson.
“On-track thrills will be easy to find across all ten race brackets, with a number of heavy hitters from the Pro Series and Pro Street scenes confirmed for this weekend’s event.
“Cannuli will be just one of ten racers to heat up the popular 10.5 bracket famous for its big burnouts and tight competition, while in the pro street brackets Victorians Dom Luppino and Craig Brewer will be joined by Tristan Ockkers in their impressive mustang, Holden HR panel van and blown mincer Capri respectively.
“Stuart Henry will also make a return in his modified street Capri with a nitrous big block under the hood, alongside the impressive pro-charged Torana hatchback of Mick Voarse which has been running big numbers recently.
“It isn’t all about turbos and nitrous either, with the naturally aspirated brackets throwing up a number of names and cars to watch including Pete Pronesti, Matthew Basonovic and Mick Broady.
“True Street is one for the fans to keep their eyes on with 16 of the toughest street cars in the country racing under this banner, as will the Dial Your Own bracket which with a big prize purse of $3000 on offer has attracted some 40 racers this weekend.”
Also on track during the event will be the Great Chrome Bumper Muscle Car Show – featuring anything and everything that can be classified as a muscle car with chrome bumpers.
With all brackets being run in the Chicago Shootout style (three rounds for all racers plus a final) there will be plenty of value for money racing on track for spectators, with tickets just $25 for adults, $20 for students with ID and free for children aged 13 and under.
