With the format returning to the traditional qualifying and eliminations, Dobson took his Rapisarda Autosport International dragster to the final against John Lamattina after beating Mark Mariani in the semis.

In Top Doorslammer, another Perth racer in John Zappia elevated himself to the top of the points chase by taking the Striker Crushing/Fuchs HQ Monaro to victory lane. He got to the final by taking out old rival Victor Bray in the semis, then defeated Marty Dack in the Final.

Zappia is on a quest for a record six consecutive Australian Doorslammer Championships.
