DAY TWO of Drag Challenge was held at Mildura's eighth-mile Sunset Strip track. It is an excellent venue, but the weather really turned up the heat on the entrants.

We chat with Scott about why he chose the path less-travelled with this engine combo and why he came to Drag Challenge. 

Harry Haig and his crew had a long night with transmission problems and were doing it tough in the heat.
