Day Of The Drags approaches

This article brought to you by:

Day of The Drags 2012 is fast approaching, the two day event at Sydney Dragway featuring pre-1975 vehicles, old-school drag racing for drag racers and families.

The Day Of The Drags began in 2006 as a low key do-it-yourself event for Hot Rods, Classics, HAMBsters and other period correct vehicles. For six years now, each March the event has grown in size and popularity. Now it is time to let the secret out and share the event with everyone.

A live Band will be on hand on Saturday night as well as Kids entertainment all weekend long.

Competitor Entry numbers are limited each day to ensure value for money and more than the usual number of passes.

A two day SWAP MEET along with trade stands

Spectators can attend Saturday racing plus Saturday evening entertainment or just come on down on Sunday to watch some really cool cars racing or on display in the Pit Area or better still purchase a discount weekend pass and get it all.

Saturday follows the well established Day Of The Drags format with entries open to vehicles running the quarter mile in 11 seconds or more and also includes the 3nd annual Sidevalve Shootout. Saturday night entertainment at the track includes live rockabilly music, vintage pin-up competition, twilight car show and children’s attractions.

Sunday will feature Nitro Nostalgia funny cars and vehicles with elapsed times 10.99 and faster with four E.T. grouped classes. Everything from Wild Hot Rods, FEDs (Front Engined Dragsters) and Gassers are expected to enter.
