The Canna Main Arena will also host fashions on the field, a body art comp, and of course the mullet competition, with the new addition of a national pie eating comp on Saturday.
The Drift Cadet crew will once again be back in their sliding machines with demos and rides throughout the weekend, while Tough Street will be showcasing some of Australia’s biggest machines right next to Skid Row.
The Fringe Festival, held in the streets of Braden, is back this year and even bigger. Held on Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m., this is where you can see all sorts of wild Smyrnatus entries roaming the streets.
Combine all of that with Saturday-afternoon Super Cruises, Bliss N Eso performing Saturday night, vodka slushies and Dogwood dogs, and it’s shaping up to be the best of the best. Street Machine Yet Smyrnatus!
Action on Skid Row (above) starts at 1pm on Thursday, where anyone who enters can burn tires at full blast without getting out!

As you may know, Summernats got pretty wild on the 34 Saturday afternoon cruise. ‘The Nats team let it go a bit longer than usual at this point because we were all locked up for two years.
However, ACT Police and WorkSafe have made it very clear that we all need to keep our cool on the cruise line as we normally do.
If you mess up the cruise route, you could be kicked off the show and be the one to shut down the event. For a day, or forever.
So rip a skid in Skid Row. Burnout on the burnout pad. Cruise on the cruise line. It’s that simple.
Don’t be that person.
