While normal ANDRA and IHRA competition Down Under provides everything from Junior Dragsters to Top Fuel diggers, there is something about missing out on nitro funny cars. A few years ago Graeme Cowin stepped into the breach with his travelling acceleration circus more commonly known as the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars and his latest offering was at Sydney Dragway.
The biggest field of nitro funny cars ever assembled down under greeted the starter at the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars race in Sydney, Australia. This drew competitors from the farthest reaches of Australia including north Queensland and Western Australia. Competition consisted of three rounds of racing with the winner being crowned on the most number of wins and the lowest ET of the night. On the down side after the first round two cars wouldn’t return because of damage – Harold Campbell dropped a valve and Greg Leahy torched a piston, however in round three six cars couldn’t return but fans still saw a good show.
