Nitro in the air at West Coast Nationals

-The Goodguys "Nitro Thunderfest" featuring Vintage Top Fuel dragsters will be one of many highlights during the Goodguys 26th West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster Aug 24-26 in Pleasanton.

If you dig top fuel and you love whiffing heavy doses of nitromethane – then you’ll dig hanging out at next week’s Goodguys 26th West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster.

Included in the weekend-long event will be the Goodguys Nitro Thunderfest – a unique display of 1960s-era top fuel dragsters including the Bowman & Olson AA/FD, the Ewell, Bell & Stecker AA/FD, the Brissette & Alexander AA/FD and the Goodguys Speed Sport Roadster rear-engine AA/FD. The cars will be displayed on the concrete pad (where the double decker bus and stage are for the Get-Together’s) and will be fired off one by one @ 1pm Friday 8/24 and at 1pm and 4pm on Saturday 8/25.

In addition to the Thunderfest cars, NHRA Top Fuel racer Mike Salinas of Gilroy will display his 300-inch wheelbase contemporary Top Fuel machine as well as matching vintage dragster. Not to be outdone – Salinas’ tricked out tractor/trailer is a show piece in and of itself!

Bring your earplugs and prepare to be “dosed”! The air will be thick with nitro in Pleasanton!
