John Zappia takes the cover of Drag News Magazine Issue 28 for an international themed extravaganza of horsepower reading.
Zappia’s journey to the USA saw him become a new world record holder for blown doorslammers, the latest achievement in a list that has grown beyond his wildest expectations.
While Zappia is at the peak of his career, our next feature shows a driver who we think is still before his greatest years. That is Shane Tucker, now an NHRA Pro Stock racer doing things on his own terms in business and motorsport. Balancing work, family and racing across the world is not easy but Tucker is making it happen.
We speak with a couple of expats: Vic Wood, the man to know in the aftermarket industry, and Steve Harker, who decided to spend his retirement racing throughout the USA.
Luke Crowley tells us what it is like racing on both sides of the planet and we check out events including East Coast Thunder at Sydney Dragway, the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars at Springmount and Hot Rod Drag Week USA.
