While the on-track performances are thrilling thanks to their horsepower engines and kmh speeds, it will be off the track where series manager Morice McMillin will be trying to win over fans on the weekend. All of the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars will be sitting on the ground ready for close examination from young eyes, while drivers will be available for questions and photos throughout the party. We wanted to step it up to the next level of interaction. Adding to the party atmosphere will be a two-lane horizontal bungee jump, face painting, free ice slushies and even an appearance from 'Captain America'. McMillin said hardcore drag racing fans shouldn't miss the day, with 11 nitro-fuelled Funny Cars in total taking to the track, including hometown favourites Jake and Dan Donnelly.
While he has been very capable of performing at the highest levels of the sport, Cowin wanted to put together a new show for Australian drag racing, inspired by the nostalgia nitro funny car scene in the USA and shows outside drag racing such as Monster Jam. He started to collect his own funny cars, importing the best from the USA with famous 70s and 80s match racing names like LA Hooker. Among the early cars too was Nitro Express, with its distinctive 57 Chev body. Soon Cowin had four reliable nitro funny cars he begun to put down the track around the country.
How long ago was it? Consider, for example, that as of Dec. The s was still a time when a guy with a self-funded car had a decent shot at winning a national event, though as the decade progressed, that likelihood diminished significantly as quickly as Kenny Bernstein and Dale Armstrong could invent new stuff. He actually finished higher fourth in with Larry Frazier tuning and was eighth in , but the best obviously was still to come.
