Jamikah Darcy won out the New Star Juniors race with Ayden Mills coming runner-up and Sam Mills in third place.

The street stocks were the biggest division for the night, with Jim Dixon taking the win, closely followed by Curt Harris and Eric Wade in second and third place.

Because of a lack of competitors in both the productions and modified racers they raced against each other with Jhye Kent wining out of the productions and Dylan McLaughlin coming second.

Some drivers had issues with their vehicles with a number of break downs occurring during the night as is to be expected during the first race of the season.
