The Calder Park Drag Racing Street Outlaws Series kicked off on Friday Night July 11th in front of an eager crowd of spectators ready to see some of the toughest street cars battle it out for top spot on their representative lists.
The Desert Nationals presented by Supercheap Auto and Shannons Insurance at Alice Springs Inland Dragway this past weekend was the site of four new 660 feet national records, the first to be set in Northern Territory.
When you’re racing over 660 feet, there is no room for error. The half-track distance is set up for close tight racing from the hit of the throttle to the finish line; it’s all over in a blink of an eye.
Conditions were cool but the action was hot during qualifying for Round 8 of the Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship at the 2014 Desert Nationals presented by Supercheap Auto and Shannons Insurance.
Round four of the Queensland Drag Racing Championship at Willowbank Raceway was to be a Group Three only affair. But with 30 Pro Street racers putting their hand up to do some testing runs, it made for a show guaranteed to excite with wheelstanding action.
When the Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship comes to Alice Springs for the Desert Nationals this weekend, one of the premiere brackets on show will be the loud and fast Funny Cars, Dragsters, Altereds and Sedans of Supercharged Outlaws.
