WANT to get your adrenalin pumping?

Then maybe this is for you.

Queensland's June long weekend will see the FUCHS Winternationals being held at Willowbank Raceway near Ipswich.

It is destined to be championship mayhem as a number of title battles are set to go down to the wire at the season finale on June 8-11, 2012.

The FUCHS Winternationals is Australia's largest drag racing event and a regular venue of "to the wire" title battles, hosting up to 500 racers and more than 38,000 spectators over its four big days.

Following a recent penultimate championship round in Sydney, all across the entry list there are championship battles coming down to the wire.

In Top Fuel, Damien Harris is just 2.5 points in front of reigning champ Darren Morgan.

Top Doorslammer in Sydney saw the infamous West Australian pair of Robin Judd and John Zappia continue to trade blows and 5.7 second passes, and Peter Kapiris also stepping into the 5.7 zone.

In Top Alcohol, Sydney saw an all funny car, all Queensland final round with 14-time champion Gary Phillips taking on Steven Ham.

With Ham beating out the champ in a narrow victory you can be sure Phillips will be focused on securing not just championship but all event honours at Willowbank Raceway.

You will also get to see Comp Bikes, Supercharged Outlaws and the Junior Dragster battling it out, plus a heap more.

Willowbank Raceway will host the 45th running of Australia's largest drag racing event, with the FUCHS Winternationals to feature the final rounds of both the ANDRA Pro Series and the Rocket Allstars Racing Series.

The action will not be confined to the quarter-mile however, with family entertainment, trade shows and plenty of action for the whole family.

Tickets start from just $20 with students (with ID) eligible for discounted entry and children 13 and under free.
