New Zealand's Barry Plumpton teased us with the quickest nitrous passes we have ever seen in Australia at the Gulf Western Oil Mega Race, and now he has entered the record books for the country's first five-second nitrous boosted run with his Camaro.

Plumpton's Australian adventure continued on at Sydney Dragway as he prepared for Pro Extreme at Nitro Thunder, where the team dropped not one but two five-second nitrous passes in his New Zealand Pro Mod.

The Jerry Bickel built 959ci nitrous snorter clocked a 5.88 at 240mph to well and truly smash into the five-second zone. Check out the video.

"Feeling very humbled for all the messages," said Plumpton on Facebook. "On behalf of the team, thank you so much for your kind messages of support and congratulations. We are living the dream, and appreciate all the support from back home, and been made to feel welcome by some awesome people over here in oz.

"Yesterday we made two passes, both our quickest ever at 5.88 and 5.96, and both with room to work with - lessons being learned."
