The Northwest’s quickest and fastest Nitro Funny Cars are coming to the Goodguys Friday Night Drags, July 22nd at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington! Goodguys are proud to announce a special, one night only match race between “The Northwest Hitter” Bucky Austin and “Mr Explosive” Mark Sanders! Austin and Sanders will make two runs during the evening filling the air with nitro fumes and lighting up the night sky with header flames!

The giant evening also features an 8 car blown alcohol dragster show from the Northwest Top Eliminator Association as well as five eliminator classes! We’ve also expanded the event hours and moved the entire program up two hours to accommodate the large eliminator fields in hopes of finishing the event prior to the 10pm track curfew.
