Drag Challenge 2024 entries on sale today!

Drag Challenge is back, and it’s going to be huge!


Street Machine Drag Challenge is back for 2024, and it’s going to be a big one! This year, the event will start and finish at Calder Park Raceway, calling in at Mildura’s Sunset Strip, Dragway at the Bend in Adelaide and Heathcote Park Raceway along the way. It is the ultimate test for your street car and the most fun you can have on four wheels!

To give our spectators a stack of extra entertainment, we’ll be hosting a Summernats Pro Burnouts qualifying round at The Bend after racing finishes on Friday afternoon, along with another massive Pro Burnouts qualifier that will run side-by-side with the racing under lights at Heathcote Park on Saturday night.

And once racing is over on Sunday, our new VIP Grudge Challenge will see a group of specially invited tough street cars take on any Drag Challenge competitors who still haven’t had enough racing! That will keep everyone entertained before the awards presentation, along with a racers’ barbecue and music.

Earlybird Drag Challenge entries will open on Friday 21 June a 9am, with Pro Burnout entries opening soon after.

Get your entries here.

Sanctioning will be run under the IHRA at all tracks. If you have an ANDRA licence and tech, the IHRA will offer a reciprocal licence at a smoking price.
