2022 Westernationals Statement
Following the recent announcement regarding hard border closures made by the WA Government, the Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) and the Perth Motorplex regret to confirm that Top Fuel Australia will be unable to attend the 2022 Westernationals event scheduled to be held at the Motorplex across March 5-6.
Perth Motorplex management are already in negotiations to bring Top Fuel drag racing to Western Australia at the first suitable date once the border allows.
ANDRA continues to investigate the potential impacts of the border closure announcement on competitors for the Australian Drag Racing Championships (ADRC) and Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series (SRESS), which are also scheduled to contest the Westernationals event at Perth Motorplex. An update regarding the participation of those series will be released by ANDRA and the Perth Motorplex in the coming week.
In the meantime, this Saturday January 29, the Perth Motorplex will host its largest event of the season – The House and Land Expert “Nitro Slam. Full fields of top level drag racing will be on show including Nitro Funny Cars, Top Doorslammers, Dragsters, Altereds and Top Comp. Tickets are on sale at Motorplex.com.au
The Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd, or ANDRA for short, is the drag racing sanctioning body of Australia. The organization was created in 1973 from a more drag racing oriented faction of the Australian Hot Rod Federation. Today ANDRA sanctions races throughout Australia and throughout the year at all levels, from Top Fuel to Junior Dragster, on everything from temporary regional tracks to international standard facilities in capital cities. ANDRA and its members make drag racing a family-friendly, safe sport. So come along as a spectator or bring your street car to an “off-street” event and enjoy the excitement that is Australian drag racing. www.andra.com.au
