Flame-Throwing Bonanza Beckons For The West

With increasingly intense championship battles, a visiting international star, and more than 200 racers including five 11,000hp flame-throwing Top Fuel dragsters in their only visit to the West for 2024, the 53rd MacTrack Westernationals at the Perth Motorplex will have it all this Saturday and Sunday (March 2/3).

In Top Fuel Motorcycle, Fuelled Motorsport’s Benny Stevens has had a very strong season so far and leads the way in the points standings on 406 points. Damian Muscat and Greg Durack are tied for second place, while Rob Cassar and Danny Rickard round out the top five.

Taking on the bracket regulars this weekend will be international Top Fuel Harley star Michael Beland, who will be riding a Fuelled Motorsport Dannani Hot Shots Top Fuel Harley alongside Stevens and is keen to ruffle some feathers as he tries to bring home his own NDRC Christmas Tree trophy and hopefully help Steven’s title hopes along the way.

In total, 10 Top Fuel Motorcycles – six of them hailing from the West – will tackle the Motorplex this weekend in the fight for NDRC honours, with Stevens, Muscat, Durack and Beland to be joined by Wayne McGuinnes, Kim Leonard, Ricky Wood, Travis Lorraway, Kevin Gummow and Ian Ashelford.

“How cool is it to have an international star of Michael Beland’s calibre coming over to race at the Westernats!” exclaimed NDRC Co-Founder, Andy Lopez.

“Top Fuel Motorcycle is something else, a real eye-opening experience to watch and the pinnacle of two-wheeled drag racing.

“The riders in this bracket deliver insane performances and we can’t wait to see our Aussie racers go up against the international visitor this weekend in a battle of the bikes this weekend.”

Top Fuel, Top Doorslammer and Top Fuel Motorcycle will be joined by the Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship racers on-track at the Perth Motorplex for the 53rd annual MacTrack Westernationals, with racing to be held across Saturday March 2 and Sunday March 3. For event info and tickets, visit
