This weekend’s Supercharged Outlaws line up includes 2014 Fuchs Winternationals winner Rodney Hansen and defending champion Luke Marsden and Jake Donnelley, who are all in contention for the 2014 title.
The final round of the Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship Supercharged Outlaws takes place at Sydney Dragway as part of the Australian Nationals, 31 October to 2 November.
