Final preparations are underway at Willowbank Raceway with only two days to go until the Gulf Western Oil Super Thunder on April 8-9.

Fans will be greeted each night with show-stopping racing from the Pro Categories, including Top Fuel Funny Cars making their debut for 400 Thunder. In addition to over a dozen sportsman categories who will not only be putting on a show for the fans but also chasing that elusive Gold Christmas tree awards to the category winners.

 “Super Thunder is shaping up to be an outstanding event with the Match Race debut of the Morice McMillin Aeroflow Performance & Adam Murrihy Nitro Feak Top Fuel Funny Cars Plus Pro Alcohol, Pro Slammer, IHRA Pro Mod, Pro Stock, and exhibition passes for Top Fuel Bike & Pro Stock Motorcycle,” said 400 Thunder General Manager Steve Bettes.

“The Gulf Western Oil Super Thunder event features an amazing show, a snippet of what we can expect at the upcoming world renowned Winternationals in June. With over 200 entries already, and with just 8 weeks to go for final entries to come in, the Winternationals should not be missed”.

“Super Thunder is a short sharp action packed program made to deliver you bulk entertainment in a fast paced package.”

Following a test day on Thursday, Friday will kick off with the sportsman categories at 5.00pm, with Top Fuel Funny Cars doing their first sighting run at 6.07pm followed by all the pro categories and once again to close out the evening to grab the last bit of track data before the main race day on Saturday.

Action will start once again on Saturday afternoon at 12.30pm with a fully packed race schedule running into the night providing the perfect atmosphere to see the nitro burning monsters in full swing at 4.00pm.

Aeroflow Top Fuel Funny Car Racer Morice McMillin said recently “These cars are truly beasts, with an estimated 10,000 horsepower on hand and 0-500km/h in less than 5 seconds, and the key to these cars is the team back in the pits. It’s a spectacle just watching the boys work together getting these cars apart and back together between rounds, it’s a well-organized procedure and everyone knows their roles”

All events that have ran as part of the current season through until the 2023 Winternationals are now also part of the Super Season 2.0. Racers will be eager to put points on the board from a potential 12 championship rounds resulting in an exciting day of racing for the spectators.
