Aumen, who earlier finished third in the seventh heat race, crossed first in the main ahead of (in order) Glenn Rand, Gennifer Isles and Cam Stanfield.

Boyce, who also won the C trophy dash and was fourth in his heat race, came out ahead of Bill Ganner, Ryan Alexander and Shea Mellors.

Other double winners on the night included Mitch Melin in the A trophy dash and seventh heat race, and Trevor Rowden in the B dash and second heat race.

Other heat race winners included Mellors, Stanfield, Jacob Spring, Ganner, Rand and Dave Fetherby. Fast qualifying time was recorded by Mike Tomley with a 15.282-second lap.

The championship night will see the Hornets join the demo cars ands trucks, bombers, mini figure 8s, and Capital City Drifting in determining 2015 season champions.
