The Aeroflow Nitro Hot Rods gathered for their strongest showing yet with four machines ready to thunder down the Sydney Dragway quarter last Sunday for the Cruzin' Mag Nostalgia Drags.
It was the largest gathering of fuel altereds in decades, if not ever in Australia, and the site will be common place as Graeme Cowin will be taking the Nitro Hot Rod show on the road to venues around the country in similar styling to the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car series of events.
The event marked the first public outing of Chucky's Toy with Rick Gauci acting as steering wheel attendant, joining Bezerk, Spooky and of course Psycho.
Those in attendance at the Hot Rod Reunion on the night before were treated to a special four car cacklefest to set the mood for the following day.
Racing opened with Shane Olive in Psycho taking on Justin Walshe in Bezerk, Pyscho drawing first blood with a 6.094 at 234mph to Bezerk's 6.431 at 226mph.
Chucky's Toy won its maiden race over the Morice McMillin driven Spooky 6.088 to 6.270 in another great side by side pass.
Elapsed times plummeted in the second round of three - the racing being run on the same Chicago Shootout format at the funny car show. Chucky's Toy ripped a stunning 5.847 at 239mph - the quickest run ever in Australia for a fuel altered we think - making Bezerk's outstanding 6.031 a little ho-hum, well not really, what a race!
Spooky joined the five second club with a 5.966 proving the freshly rebuilt machine was better than ever, and Psycho was in the ball park with a trailing 6.084 to cap off the best round of fuel altered racing we have ever seen.
Final round time and Bezerk unfortunately could not front, this gifted Spooky his second win and let rip a 6.015 at 237mph.
Chucky's Toy was looking for three straight round wins but Gauci was up on the wheel 3 thou to early in what would of been a cracker of race against Psycho with a 6.076 to 6.084.
As a result McMillin in Spooky with the quickest ET of the final round was declared the event winner over Chucky's Toy and Gauci.
The Aeroflow Nitro Hot Rods now head to Steel City Raceway at Whyalla for their next showing, be sure to check them out over the short track.
