Pro Stock’s Battle of the brothers comes down to the wire


Brothers Aaron and Tremayne and Tyronne are set to fight out the ANDRA Drag Racing Series Pro Stock Championship this weekend at the at Sydney Dragway’s Australian Nationals.

Aaron Tremayne is shooting for his fifth Pro Stock title and heads into the final with a 77 point lead over big brother Tyronne, who looks to back up his recent Benaraby Nationals win with a maiden title.

After fighting it out all year, Aaron said he’s hoping for a Tremayne versus Tremayne final.

“Hopefully the qualifying order will see us not meeting each other during the rounds,” Aaron said.

“The Australian Nationals is the most important event on the calendar and winning it is the dream of every Pro Stock driver.”

After fighting it out all year with no other team winning a Pro Stock round, Tyronne not only hopes to deny his brother of the title, but also chases his first ever Australian Nationals win.

“Both of us race to win, we have always been extremely competitive especially when we race each other, so there will be no holding back,” he said.

“I haven't won the Nationals, but hopefully I can put it on my win list in the near future.”

The Tremayne brothers put their one-two form down to the Tremaniac Racing developed engine program and a focus on reliability.

“With limited funds to spend on research and development it is basically impossible to keep up with our US counterparts. But we try our best. We have our own engine program and manufacture our own cylinder heads,” said Aaron.

Tyronne said Sydney Dragway’s inconsistent surface can catch drivers out.

“Sydney is a good track but has a couple of bumps in it. One is right on the shift point and
you actually have to wait for the second blink of the shift light or say goodbye to your ET,” Tyronne said.

Lee Bektash will be out in force to try and put an end to the Tremayne dominance, having set a 6.903 second run at 198.35 mph in testing.

Pro Stock qualifying at the Australian Nationals takes place from midday Saturday 1 November with the first of four elimination rounds running from 11am on Sunday.
