Sixty five drivers took to the pad Saturday afternoon to compete for the cash prize in the Smoke for Dough competition with only one crowned 2018 winner! There were more than double the entries of last year’s event and the race was on to be donned best of ground!
Spectators from across the state were treated to not one, not two but three late night burnouts with the tribute band playing late into the night.
Sunday morning was an early rise and shine for some with bacon and eggs a hot favourite for a few who partied a tad too hard the night before!
With more than 120 drivers across the four divisions, Sunday was a big day for all! It was great to see an increase in entrants (on last year’s numbers) for both the creek divisions, two wheel drive and four wheel drive.
Local, Shane Timperley took out top spot, winning the two wheel drive creekbed with fastest time of 106.28 and only 1 of 2 that made it successfully through in the class!
The four wheel drive division saw local Nick Green take out 3rd position from a competitive class of 42 vehicles.
Burnouts had the greatest number of entries and drew the biggest crowd. We saw an array of coloured smoke throughout the weekend including some glitter, although one very special edition of some pink smoke for a Narrogin visitor, who unveiled the gender of their expecting baby!
Once again, the event was a great success! With massive crowd numbers significantly contributing to this. The biggest thank you goes to Kukerin Ag Society President, John Davidson! John spent hours putting every last effort into making this year event a success and even more effort into the weekend to make sure the event ran smoothly. Thank you John, this year's event wouldn't have been possible without your efforts.
Further thanks also goes to all our volunteers - your assistance is greatly appreciated! For photos and videos of the event be sure to check out the Kukerin Creekbed and Burnout Competition Facebook.
We look forward too and hope to see our crowds back again next year, for the 2019 Kukerin Creekbed and Burnout Competition!
