Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder

In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series marked its return after 12 years away from Australia’s sporting capital with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.

Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with Morgan’s 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.

Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.

“This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work on this car,” he said. “(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there — he got it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.

“In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through.”

Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.

“Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,” he said.
