Drag News Magazine Issue 55 Print – $15.95 Here’s what’s in this issue: Wayne Daley shows off his Dodge Dart, a ride he hopes will take him to a 400 Thunder Pro Stock Championship. The Queensland welder turned businessman has spent decades in Pro Stock, but there has never been a better time than this to claim the title. Get a close look at this awesome race car in our pages! Supercharged Outlaws driver Ryan Van Dyk has had a rougher road than most to get back to racing. From engine problems to a world pandemic, it seems everything has been in his way – but it’s all worth it for those few seconds of glory. Brett Baile is one of the new nitro pioneers in Australian drag racing moving forward with an injected nitro combination. He talks with Drag News Magazine about what the switch from a Modified altered to a nitro beast has been like! PJ Todarello has had some really cool rides in his drag racing career, despite his young age. His latest machine is all about fun at the race track – and mid fours on radials with a nitrous-breathing Cortina certainly sounds like fun!

Here’s what in this issue… Steve Aldridge and his Plymouth Barracuda Top Doorslammer. Steve purchased this car in an unusual way, taking it home from his opponent after racing against it at the Westernationals four years ago! Now it is a 5.7 second contender in the WA Summer Slam Series. Chris Daniel’s blown Ford XB Top Sportsman coupe. What started as a much simpler build got a whole lot more horsepower when Chris got some bad news. He was told he had a time limit on life, so he was going to take it to the max. We’re happy to report the news has since got much better – and the car remains a beast! Ray Xerri’s supercharged Holden Six-powered altered. A long time in the making (14 years in fact) this beautiful altered is a retro feast, from its straight-six mill to the hot rod-styled body. Lorenzo Gullotto’s twin turbo, big block Chev Ford Mustang. After tearing it up in his Drag Challenge-busting, seven-second Holden Commodore, Lorenzo has moved on to getting serious with radial tyres. There’s no shortage of power, but can he get it to the ground at Perth Motorplex’s slick-favourable track? Lance Warren, the new owner of Heathcote Park Raceway. Lance has some amazing plans, and has already produced some great results at the historic Bendigo venue. We talk with Lance about the future of the track! Veteran photographer Jon Van Daal returns with even more retro doorslammer pics showcasing Australian blown sedan history.

Drag News Magazine Issue 52 Print – SOLD OUT Our cover star for this issue is Kelvin Lyle, a quiet yet confident Pro Slammer hero in the making.

Filled with nitro-burning Triumph horsepower, Gummow’s two-wheeled missile might have some brutal speed in store, but he is prepared to be patient after spending years building the beautiful ride.

Nitro Champs cancelled due to rain forecast

In a major blow to the shortened ANDRA championship season, Sydney Dragway has cancelled this weekend’s Nitro Champs due to a forecast of rain. Following on from the cancellation of the Santo’s Super 3 Extreme event at Willowbank less than a month ago, the decision leaves just the Fuchs Winternationals in June left for the season. Sydney Dragway released the following statement: “Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen Regretfully Sydney Dragway finds itself in a position of having to make the difficult decision to cancel this week’s Nitro Champs. The weather forecast for the remainder of the week indicates more rain with Saturday expecting as high as 90% likelihood of 10-20mm of rain. This leaves us with no alternative but to cancel the event. The venue is already under pressure from the weather with the grounds and car parks saturated and with more rain immanent this week the venue would not be user friendly. To all our competitors who have entered the Nitro Champs we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. We will contact you later today via email with further details as to entry fees paid. We understand that this is an extremely shortened season and would like to wish everyone great success at the Winternationals.” Email Address Phone Number {fcomment}
