Race 1 of Round 3 was called early, with series leader Broc Feeney eventually classified the winner, after Jack Perkins' car caught fire and several others incurred damage at Turn 3.
The drama was triggered when Everingham showed the nose at Best in the battle for third, turning the #78 FGX Falcon sideways on exit of the blind corner.
However, stewards found no one wholly or predominately to blame.
“The DRD and DSA conducted an investigation into an incident between Cars 78 and 27 resulting in contact between numerous cars,” read the stewards report.
“Following a review of all available broadcast footage, including the in-car judicial camera from Cars 54 [Matt McLean] & 27, the DRD in consultation with the DSA determined no one driver was wholly or predominately to blame.”
Everingham's team-mate Jayden Ojeda was initially classified the race winner given he had been leading at the end of Lap 13, to which the result was initially backdated to.
However, that was changed to the end of Lap 14, the lap prior to the incident, in the hours afterwards, meaning Triple Eight Race Engineering's Feeney now has his third win in a row and fourth out of five for the year to date.
Qualifying for Race 2 starts tomorrow (Sunday) at 11:15 local time/AEST.
