DRAG Challenge for 2018 kicks off today at Calder Park Raceway, racing from 9am to 3pm. The convoy then heads to Swan Hill for the next day’s racing on Tuesday.

With over 270 cars officially entered, we had over 200 sign-on yesterday for scrutineering. Today we are processing a bunch of stragglers who were racing at Portland or checking out the Bright Rod Run, so we could add another 40 cars to the total this morning. The rest aren’t going to make it, but there is always next year!

There are so many amazing cars entered, it is making our heads spin! We’ll bring you as many as possible during the week, so stay tuned!
