Warwick Dragway launched their quarter mile drag racing scene in spectacular style over the weekend, the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars delivered a fantastic show as they always do alongside an army of other eager racers keen to test the brand new racing surface.

On the back of $1.9million in government funding, it turned into a long haul for the privately owned venue to complete the extensive upgrades to be able to go quarter mile racing, with many delays out of the Loy Family’s control from COVID to weather. But the hard slog was worth it with government dignitaries including Federal National Party leader David Littleproud, Southern Downs Mayor Vic Penissi, Deputy Mayor Ross Bartley and Councillors Steven Tancred and Andrew Gale joining the Loy Family’s John and Chris Loy for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially re-open the venue as Australia’s newest quarter miler dragstrip.

Despite pesky Mother Nature getting in the way with a rain shower, this did not dampened the spirits and the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars still ripped and teared across two rounds of racing over the 1000ft distance with side by side four-second blasts. King Kong lived up to its name as king with the Brandon Gosbell driven Pontiac TransAm clocking the quickest ET at 4.84 seconds.

The Leahy sisters, Chelsea and Shelby delighted the great crowd as they skilfully finessed their flame popping wheelstanders downtrack after each nitro session.

And their were plenty of other tough cars and bikes on show over two days of racing.

Thanks to Drag Photos for these fantastic images from the event.
