“I am looking forward to good weather, excellent competition and excellent racing,” Morgan said.

The AEG Top Fuel dragster has been consistent and fast all season, DMR tuner Ben Patterson is looking forward to putting down some fast passes.

“We have had a really good season, we ran our personal best in Perth,” Patterson said.

“We ran a 4.77 with the parachute out half track at the last event, which could of easily been in the 4.60s if the chute hadn’t come loose.”
