Leonard Bros Racing Crew Shot

Aussies Mathew Leonard and his brother Warren travelled to the Boise Nightfire Nationals recently all the way from Adelaide in South Australia. Now, after a quick change from running nitro back to alcohol, they are preparing for more racing this weekend at Salt Lake City's RMR Raceway.


Leonard Bros

Australia's Leonard Brothers will compete this weekend against the US' best Fuel Altereds at the Nightfire Nationals. 

The 11-14 August event is being held at Firebird Raceway in Boise, Idaho (US). 

"We have converted the NitroRat Altered from alcohol to nitromethane and will be racing in the 6.0 Pro Class in a field of 10 cars as the first Australian Fuel Altered team to compete on US soil," Mathew Leonard said.

Warren and Jane Leonard have joined Mathew in the US to assist with the program, as has Mike Gabel and Scott Schlisman of Salt Lake City (UT).

Auzmet Architectural Chevrolet Camaro driver Shane Tucker could be seen as a little apprehensive. After hurting two engines in Epping one month ago, Tucker’s team has been burning the midnight oil to repair them and return to competition.

June 19, 2017: In the highly explosive, high horsepower sport of drag racing, anything can happen. Just ask Perth Top Fuel Harley racer Benny Stevens who was ready to give it his all at Round 7 of the Mickey Thompson Top Fuel Harley Series at NHRA’s Thunder Nationals.
