THE Sunraysia Drag Racing Association (SDRA) is already looking forward to running the Sunset Strip Junior Nationals next year after a successful event debut at the weekend.

The third junior nationals, the first since the 1990s and first run in the southern half of Australia, were hailed a success by SDRA president Kingsley Kuchel, who was confident it would become a regular feature on the calendar.

“At the moment we haven’t set a date for next year but pretty much at presentations on Saturday and Sunday we talked hoping it was going to be one of many,” Kuchel said.
