Nitro Thunderfest Brings Vintage Top Fuelers to 13th Del Mar Nationals

The Goodguys NitroThunderfest returns in 2013 getting started at the Goodguys 13th Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals April 5-7 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds north of San Diego! A stellar lineup of cars is featured this year including the 1977 NHRA Top Fuel Championship-winning car of Shirley Muldowney!

Goodguys Nitrothunderfest is a special exhibit featuring vintage Top Fuel dragsters. The cars are fired up multiple times throughout the weekend giving fans a heavy dose of Nitro fumes and lots of thunder as these nitro burning monsters do their thing!

In Del Mar – the cars will startup once Friday afternoon and twice on Saturday at their traditional clock tower location! Just prior to Saturday’s first fireup, drag racing legends Don”The Snake” Prudhomme and Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen will hold a special meet & greet with fans to reminisce and talk about their new movie “Snake & Mongoose” scheduled for release this fall. It will be a stellar event so make sure and get your spot on the railing!

Goodguys Nitrothunderfest will also be featured at this year’s 27th West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster Aug 23-25 in Pleasanton as well as the 3rd Fall Del Mar Nationals November 22-24 right back in ol’ Del Mar. There’s even talk of expanding the Thunderfest to certain Midwest events so stay tuned!
