THE second Cruising Nationals is on 15-17 April, in the fine southern NSW town of Deniliquin. The concept of the Nationals is for hundreds of cool cars to take over the town, with plenty of bands and a great party atmosphere – a la the Bright Rod Run and many others – but with the added attractions of eighth-mile drag racing, a burnout comp, go-towhoa and dirt drags.
The driving events will take place on the Saturday out at the Deni Aerodrome, where there will also be plane and car displays, helicopter rides, a jumping castle for the kids, trade stands and lots of great food. On Saturday night, there will be a cruise route set up in town for the entrants to strut their stuff.
The event climaxes on the Sunday with a big show ’n’ shine at Waring Gardens, where the Cruising Nationals Raffle will be drawn. The first prize is a blown 2010 Roush Mustang, with a custom 2015 Harley Sportster 48 as second prize. You can grab an entry at thecruisingnationals.com for just five bucks.
