­Look out for a new event this year as the first annual Vintage Drag Races get underway at Bairnsdale Dragway over the Easter weekend. The boys at John’s Rod and Custom have put together the program which will include the Mooneyes Dragster all the way from the USA, in Australia for the very first time! Yes, you’ll see it in action, along with other authentic nostalgia race cars.

“The big thing is that we’re allowed to run dragsters with three point cages, up to 120mph over the eighth mile,” confirmed Luke Katsanis.

The entry rules for race cars, hot rods and pre-65 vehicles are very specific, with a goal to providing a very authentic event, so best review the rules before entering to avoid disappointment.

Nostalgia fans should lock away March 30 and April 1, 2018 for this historic event. For more information and entry forms, visit
