The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car series has taken another enormous step as the entertainment-based tour now heading overseas with a visit to Meremere Dragway in New Zealand.
Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car Series Manager, Morice McMillin was excited to have the calendar in place to help the series’ competitors plan their seasons, “We are trying to get things done as early as possible and continue the momentum that we have managed to generate.”
“Going to New Zealand is a great opportunity for our racers and the New Zealand fans. A full field of nitro funny cars is something New Zealand hasn’t seen before and I’m confident we can put on a massive show for the New Zealand public,” added McMillin.
The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars will also visit Australia’s most historic eighth mile dragstrip at Whyalla’s Steel City Dragway and make two trips to Willowbank Raceway.
McMillin added, “Dealing with Mark Kuhn has been fantastic and to be heading to Steel City to race our nitro funny cars is a unique and exciting opportunity. Taking the tour from the season opener in Cairns to regional South Australia and adding an international round - we really are taking drag racing far and wide!”

McMillin concluded, “After our huge success at the Perth Motorplex this season it was great to secure a return date and once again take the show over to all our Western Australian fans. It’s an exciting year ahead for the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars.”
