Drag Challenge 2019 Day Two gallery

A massive gallery of images from day two of Drag Challenge 2019

ONE of the best things about Drag Challenge is the amazing photo opportunities it provides. On the track, on the road or in the pits, our staff always produce thousands of killer images.

This year is no exception and here’s a gallery from day two at Mildura’s Sunset Strip. You can check out the video and results list here, but if you are a fan of K&N DYO, here’s an update from the footbrake racing brigade.

Drag challenge

Day Two of Drag Challenge sets the scene for K&N DYO contenders who’ve set their dial-in and battle it out in an attempt to get close to that time. With Day One’s quarter-mile slip divided by 1.555 to get the equivalent time over the eighth-mile.

Leading the pack is Radeladian Nick McNeil in his nicely turned out 393ci Clevo powered XD Falcon who unbelievably had never drag raced before Day One. Nick belted out an 11.332sec dial in, followed by a tight 7.286 - a 11.329 equivalent.

Ford Fairlane

Nipping at Nick’s heels - only 0.006sec behind - is the luminous green ’71 Fairlane of Scott Rowell. The 393ci motivated big Ford boogied to a dial in of 11.068@124mph and was backed up with a 7.123se,c an 11.076sec by calculation.

2018 K&N DYO podium finisher Steve Grima was keen to close the gap in his stout VK Calais. And he’s done a stellar job too, running a 6.793sec eighth on a 6.799sec equivalent from yesterday’s 10.573 putting him in third. Queen of consistency Alysha Teale set herself an 11.29@121 mph which had her chasing a 7.621sec run today. “I’ll keep going, I’m pretty determined,” Alysha said, though she ran too fast with a best of 7.179sec late in the night placing her in 33rd from a field of 63 entries.

Forever the showman, Noel Inman’s wheel-standing Tall T didn’t disappoint with smokey burnouts and cheeky wheel lifts. Noel laid down a 7.244sec on a 11.146sec dial in, putting him in 30th position. But with DYO anything could happen by the end of Day 3 we may well be looking at a different leader board.
