Honda Indy 300 Launches Triple M Drags With Victor Bray

With less than 15 days until the Honda Indy 300, Australian Drag racing legend and world burnout king Victor Bray has launched the on track activity that burns up the streets after dark, the Friday night Drag Racing program.

Exhibiting the power of his specially built '57 Castrol Chevrolet in Pit Lane MacIntosh Island, Bray displayed some of the brut force fans can expect from this year's demonstration event - stopping traffic in the process.

"The Honda Indy 300 is really one of the highlights of the year. The people come to see us put on a show and we won't let them down, today is a taste of that," said Mr Bray.

In addition to the Friday night Triple M drags spectacular, Bray will also be performing his famous burnout routine at different locations around the track on Saturday and Sunday of the Honda Indy 300.

The Triple M Drags presentation has developed into an enormously popular tradition at the Honda Indy 300 with a record crowd again expected to cram the northern end of pit straight on Friday night October 26, according to event Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Jones.

"The popularity of the Triple M Drags grows each year. It's not a night for serious racing but a chance for riders and drivers to out do each other revving up the crowd," said Mr Jones.

"With Victor Bray again leading the charge, fans can be assured of some fantastic showmanship in what is going to be an entertainment spectacular."

While Victor Bray will undeniably be the biggest drawcard at the Triple M Drags, organiser Rob Oberg announced today that he would be accompanied by the first ever appearance of a Nitro Funny Car with Ashley Bailey.

"These short wheelbase cars are fitted with 5000bph, nitro methane guzzling engines sitting underneath lift-off carbon fibre bodies and are often described as being the most spectacular drag car on earth," said Mr Oberg.

"Ashley will certainly be an attraction on the night that's sure to raise a few cheers."

The Triple M Drags kicks off at 6.30pm on Friday October 26 and will be just a small part of an on-track entertainment spectacular, which will also include stunt motorcycle riders and the Warner Bros. Movie World Stunt team.
