Another of Mrs Wardell’s daughters, 21-year-old Tamika, decided to go a different route, attending the Lost Paradise festival at Glenworth Valley on the New South Wales Central Coast instead.

The entire Wardell family, including husband Brendyn and youngest daughter Montana, have been dubbed the ‘car-dashians’.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Natalie said she was trying to beat the heat during the festival.

‘Nothing better than shade and slurpees on a 38 degree day,’ she posted.

Her daughter Jazmyne posted an image of herself sitting in a pink car during the event’s final day.

‘And just like that Summernats is over for another year, until next year,’ Jazmyne captioned her post. 

In 2017, Jazmyne was crowned Miss Summernats, saying her parents were proud she had won the title as they are also ‘massive car enthusiasts’.

A self-confessed ‘bogan Barbie’, Natalie previously told Daily Mail Australia she met her husband after stopping to admire his car while out shopping.

While many daughters are embarrassed to hang out with their mum once they reach their teenage years, these girls continue to enjoy Mrs Wardell’s company, despite the constant comments about their similarities.

‘People ask if we’re sisters all the time, and some even think Jazmyne is my mum because she’s so tall and I’m so short,’ Mrs Wardell said.

‘I guess it’s a compliment to me, but people will say things like “You try to copy them”, but I mean I’ve had long blonde hair since I was 15. It’s just genetics.’  

Created in 1988, Summernats features more than 2,500 modified cars being exhibited against a backdrop of burnt rubber and rock and roll to a crowd of about 100,000 people. 

The event saw 126 cars light up their rear tires to create huge amounts of smoke and a loud, thunderous roar of engines at the Canberra exhibition to reclaim the world record for the biggest simultaneous burnout.

The world record had previously been held by Saudi Arabia, after its National Day activities in 2017 saw 199 cars burn out at the same time.

The record for ‘Largest Simultaneous Burnout’ was first set at Summernats in 2013 with 69 cars burning rubber.

The annual event ran from Thursday until Sunday and saw more than 107,000 keen petrol-heads descend on the nation’s capital. 

The festival also featured show cars, spectacular burnouts, concerts, driving events and an exhibition and trade show.

Rick Werner from the Gold Coast claimed the title of 2019 Summernats Grand Champion after his 1932 Ford pickup hotrod won him the much-sought after award.

Motorists braved 37C heat on Friday, while Saturday cooled to around 35C and down to 28C on Sunday.

According to event organisers, one or two people required medical treatment for heat-related stress illnesses during the festival.
