Darren Saliba (Mark Cuffe DragsSA.com)

Despite niggling engine issues which have plagued him since Nitro Up North, Darren Saliba clean-swept the Top Sportsman proceedings of the Desert Nationals at the weekend.

The event at Alice Springs Inland Dragway marked round two of the 18/19 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series. Now, the South Australian is hoping he can get his engine issues sorted in time for round three at Mildura’s Sunset Strip across September 22-23.
