CHRIS Loy is upbeat about the hopes of a bumper Dragfest at the Warwick Dragway this weekend.

The Warwick District Drag Racing Association president said eight nominations had been received so far for the super charged outlaws class for Dragfest.

"Most of the outlaws drivers are from Brisbane, the Sunshine and Gold coasts," Loy said.

One of the most popular events will be the street class where drivers will compete for the Craig Thompson Memorial Trophy.

"This trophy goes to the winner of the class which Craig used to race in," Loy said.

"His brother Scott is a regular in the street class at Dragfest."

There are 100 nominations in all classes from as far away as Sydney, Roma and Rockhampton.

A large contingent of Dalby drivers will be in Warwick for Dragfest.

Loy said Ipswich junior Jesse Skinner was a regular at junior events in Warwick.

"He is one of a large number who come from Brisbane and Ipswich," Loy said.

"This is our biggest meeting of the year and a lot of people just come for the atmosphere. We have entertainment on Saturday night after the end of qualifying.

"It is not always the fastest who wins as we use a handicap system. The winner is the driver who reacts best to the lights."
