Nitro New Year Calling For Dragway at The Bend
South Australia’s January is about to get even hotter with the Festival State Nationals to deliver the first ever Nitro Funny Car show at the new venue as well as intense championship racing for Top Doorslammer, Top Fuel Motorcycle, and the Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship Series.
Australia’s leading drag racing teams – including five 11,000hp/500km flame-throwing Nitro Funny Cars – are lining up to put on the most epic of shows at Dragway at The Bend across January 13-14.
On the line will be prestigious Christmas Tree trophies and valuable championship points. With the NDRC’s last visit to the Tailem Bend facility supported by a huge Grand Opening crowd, race fans are encouraged to witness another drag racing spectacle new to the facility.
The Festival State Nationals racing action will be headlined by the 11,000hp/500kmh Nitro Funny Cars, with the January 13/14 event to host round three of a five-round title chase.
Top Fuel Motorcycle
Top Fuel Motorcycle bracket is set to enjoy its second trip to Dragway at The Bend following the Spring Nationals opener, with Benny Stevens taking the first scalp of the season there before Perth’s Goldenstates saw Stevens and Wayne McGuinness deliver one of the passes of the event with a wheelstanding, full-candles side-by-side A-Final, with the local hero taking out the victory.
With two A-Final appearances from two events, Stevens unsurprisingly leads the points standings on 265 points ahead of round three, leading round two winner McGuinness (143), round one runner-up Damian Muscat (109), Danny Rickard (1904) and Mark Drew (102).
Also, on-track will be the Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship competitors, fighting it out for valuable Western Conference points as they look to ensure they are invited to the fast-approaching Sportsman Grand Final, which will also be held at Dragway at The Bend in April.
There is no doubt, the Festival State Nationals are not to be missed with incredible racing and no shortage of entertainment on and off the track. Act now to secure your tickets at ndrc.tv.
