The newest kid on the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car block is sure to become a crowd favourite on debut. The Dukes of Hazzard-inspired ‘The General’ is set to shake up the field as Australia’s favourite nitro show is joined by jet-cars and legendary Australia rock band, Rose Tattoo in an Easter spectacular in Adelaide Saturday, April 4.

The driver of ‘The General’, Daniel Schultz was excited to get behind the wheel of the new look car.

“I can’t wait to race the car in Adelaide! We have had so much positivity from all around the world on the new car, it’s time to make sure it goes as good as it looks!

“Dad (Greg Schultz) spent some time on the phone to YBI Creative about a new look and this is what Drew Jongebloed (YBI Creative’s Head Designer) came up with, we are all super-happy with the final product – the Facebook comments have been amazing.

“We wanted to have one of the iconic cars of this series and I think we have achieved that, now we need some gold to complete the picture!” laughed Schultz.

The Adelaide event continues to grow in momentum with the confirmation by event promoter Rino D’Alfonso that the event will be followed by a post race concert by Angry Anderson of Rose Tattoo.

D’Alfonso explained, “Once you have finished watching an awesome day of racing, kick back and listen to Angry Anderson of Rose Tattoo for an after race concert. Once you pay your spectator entry price, it gives you all the drag racing action plus the concert all for the same price!”

The event also includes Round 2 of the Sprint Auto Parts SA Track Championships, so the local racers will be out in force.

“This event will have everything,” added D’Alfonso.

“From the very fastest street cars to the nitro cars and the jets, no matter what your taste might be, this event will have the very best of them.

“Not to forget two wheelstanding funny cars doing full quarter mile passes on the back wheels!” exclaimed D’Alfonso.
