The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars have unfinished business in New Zealand after some rained out attempts, and 2020 will see the popular series visit not one but two tracks.
The first stop will see eight cars and the popular Nitro Sheriff wheelstander cross the Tasman to put on a show at Meremere Dragway on February 22. Track manager Gary Bogaart said he can’t wait to showcase the series to the New Zealand public.
"Having the Aeroflow teams at Meremere Dragway is very exciting, these guys know how to entertain and we can’t wait to work with them to bring both new and old fans to the track," he said.
Masterton Motorplex will then play host to the second Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars event on March 21. It will be the biggest international tour seen at the lower north island facility and has track manager Bob Wilton looking forward to what the event can bring to the track and the community.
"It's huge, we don’t have this many nitro cars in New Zealand, let alone eight of them all racing at once. These guys are famous for putting on a side by side races and we can’t wait for it to happen at MMP," he said. "I have seen first-hand the popularity of Chelsea Leahy in the wheelstander, she is going to be a hit doing full track wheelies in the police-themed Camaro."
Further event and ticketing details will be released soon.
