JBS is part of the winning team at the Australian Nationals this weekend
Wednesday, 31st October 2012
As the excitement builds for the start of the new ANDRA Pro Series season, with the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway this weekend, JBS has come to the party with a fantastic prize to kick things off.
It has been anything but quiet for Wayne and the team during the off season of Top Alcohol drag racing. With plenty of opportunities to test the new car, Wayne is getting more comfortable with each successive run and is very close to his previous performance standard.
“The car has been running well” Wayne said “and we are really getting some good data from our testing sessions. I believe we will definitely be a force to be reckoned with this weekend and I am really looking forward to the event.” Wayne’s best elapsed time so far has been 5.67 seconds, which he ran at Judgement Day at Sydney Dragway in September and his best speed was 256mph at the Test & Tune last weekend.
“The numbers we are getting are good and I am sure we will be extremely competitive. There is a good field and we are determined to be in the running come Sunday’s finals” said Wayne during last minute preparations. “We are looking forward to our first win in the funny car, it is one we really want to get under our belt. The crew are motivated and I am hungry for it. We have had 3 really good testing sessions since the end of last season in June, and all that is left is to get out there and give it all we’ve got.”
The crew are pumped and so are the sponsors with JBS showing their support by giving fans a chance to win a fantastic JBS Screwdriver & Spanner Toolkit. All you have to do for your chance to win is simply “LIKE” the JBS/Newby Racing page on facebook and guess 'How Low Newby Will Go' at the upcoming Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway this weekend. We are looking at ET (e.g. 5.695) and MPH - the lowest over the weekend. If there is more than one correct entry, the winner will be drawn from a hat! So have a go, and to all, Good Luck!
Please join us in wishing Wayne and the team good luck, and keep up to date on all the team happenings over the weekend on facebook. We will be watching the racing with great interest and fingers crossed for a Newby victory to start the season.
Wayne Newby would like to sincerely thank the entire team and our valued sponsors JBS Tools, Fabre Australia, Smithfield Diff and Gear, Coldy's Tow & Bullbars, Redline Oils, VP Racing Fuels, Mick's Metal Craft, CRC Industries and Newby Engineering for their continued support, without whom racing would not be possible.
