Gone with the Wynd at WSID
Shane Wynd is passionate about two things - the Richmond Football Club and drag racing.
That passion explains why Shane is currently leading the ANDRA Modified Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship for 2014.
Last weekend Shane made the trip up the Hume Highway to compete at the X-Champs at Western Sydney International Dragway.
The trip from Melbourne was no trouble for Shane. When he lived in Perth, Shane Wynd crossed the Nullarbor 55 times to compete in the eastern States.
That travel is in the past now that Shane has moved back to his native Victoria.
Shane was hopeful of winning at WSID. Not just to preserve his lead in the Drag Racing Championship, but to provide a trophy he could present to his father Kevin Wynd.
Kevin has been Shane's greatest supporter, making many trips across the Nullarbor to support Shane.
Shane made the semi finals of his previous events in Adelaide and Melbourne, only to have the weather get in the way.
Sadly there was no trophy from Sydney either, with Shane being eliminated on the final day.
The good news is that Shane still leads the Modified Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship for 2014.
