To say that the 2015-16 season running of the Australian AMCA Nationals Title last Saturday night at Lismore Speedway was action-packed would be a massive understatement, but in the end, it was favourite Matt Hardy who came out on top.
In what was a sensational Australian Title deciding feature race, the cream certainly rose to the top, with Steve Potts (Qld) and Matt Hardy (Qld) sharing the front row. From the outset, Potts got the jump over Hardy, and then the pair fought tooth and nail throughout the first 14 laps, before Hardy managed to execute a pass on Potts for the lead. Once out in front, Hardy stayed ahead of his rivals and at the conclusion of the 40-lap distance, which in the latter stages saw Hardy withstand the pressure from a determined Tim Reidy (Vic) and also heavy lapped traffic, saw him record an impressive and popular win.

What is an AMCA National?
AMCA Nationals are purpose-built modified race cars based on American Dirt Modifieds.
All chassis feature a HQ-WB Holden front clip and drivers have the choice of running either a Holden V8 253ci engine, which produces around 340 horsepower, or a Chevrolet V8 350ci crate engine, which produces around 350 horsepower. Drivers also have the option of running a standard Commodore BorgWarner differential or quick-change differential.
With the tightly structured rules, such as control tyres aimed at creating a level playing field between all competitors, AMCA Nationals produce close and exciting racing that is fantastic to watch and always pulls a big crowd to the fence.
