Santo Rapisarda has again shown massive commitment to Australian drag racing with a plan for his Top Fuel team to compete in Australia on the free weekend between the last two NHRA event of the season in the USA.
With the 2012 Australian Nationals just around the corner, the Titan Cranes team will go in as favourites, having won the event last year with Cory McClenathan driving and also winning the season-ending Fuchs Winternationals in June with Allan Dobson at the wheel.
Although having to miss the opening round of the championship in Adelaide, Rapisarda is excited to be back in front of Australian fans.
"We’ll be racing at Las Vegas Speedway in the USA the weekend before the Nationals, then Sydney for the Australian Nationals, then it’s back to Pomona in the USA for the World Finals," Rapisarda said.
The team has been travelling back and forth all year round racing in both countries.
Dobson has been nominated as the driver for the event.
