Sanford's first appearance downunder will be at Willowbank Raceway, Queensland on January 6.
"It's a long way to travel to Australia to race only at Willowbank," said Sanford. "So when Santo decided to run a third car in Sydney I jumped at the chance. I raced in Sydney last year and had a great time."
"In terms of competing in Top Fuel, I am still in the rookie stage of my career and the more laps I can get under my belt the better. Summer in Australia and driving a Top Fuel car - I'm living the dream. Life doesn't get much better."
"Sydney will be my fourth meeting with Rapisarda Autosport International. I really want to do well and repay the faith Santo and the family have shown in allowing me to drive for the team."
"Sydney is Santo's hometown and he sponsors the event as well. It's important that all three Rapisarda Autosport International drivers - Damien Harris, Wayne Newby and myself - step up to the mark and put on a good show."
"An all RAI final on the day would be a great outcome and to I would love to be the one to hand Santo the winners trophy," said Sanford.
