The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars are coming to Springmount Raceway on August 4! Come and see these ground-pounding 4,000 horsepower machines as they accelerate to speeds of up to 400km/h down the quarter mile!  This year will also include a ‘pit party’ with activities for the kids and a meet and greet with the Nitro Funny Car drivers!

This event combines Round 1 of the 2018/19 400 Thunder Sportsman Drag Racing Series, giving local competitors an opportunity to race for the coveted gold and silver Christmas Tree trophies which are only available at 400 Thunder rounds. This event, being part of a national series, is sure to attract competitors from far and wide so will ensure plenty of exciting on-track action along-side the awesome field of Nitro Funny Cars!

– Brackets will be dependant upon entries and may not be run where insufficient entries are received.
– Please contact us if you are unsure which bracket you should be entering.
– Racing will be run with 3 qualifying rounds and then eliminations, meaning that if you lose a round you are out. If you win, you advance to the next round until the finals are reached.
– A test session will be held on Friday night for anyone who wishes to enter it. A Test & Tune / Race Ya Mate bracket will also be run on Saturday with all of the other racing brackets for those not wanting to compete in dial-your-own racing. Note below that the price is the same to enter the Test & Tune / Race Ya Mate given that there are no eliminations so you are likely to get more runs in than those competing who have the chance of being eliminated.
– There is no option available to only race Friday night. You either race Friday and Saturday or Saturday only.
– Entries close midnight on Monday 30 July.
