NHRA star Richie Crampton will make his debut with Rapisarda Autosport International at Santo's Summer Thunder meeting, Sydney Dragway, January 24-25.

"I'm delighted that Richie has agreed to come to Australia and drive for our team this weekend," said team owner Santo Rapisarda. "My boys, Santo Junior and Santino have got to know Richie really well when we've raced in America and the times he's returned to Australia to race. He's a world class driver and a great fit with our family team."

Crampton landed the ride after the meeting scheduled for January 17-18 was postponed due to rain.

American duo, Dom Lagana and Ashley Sanford who were originally slated to fill the third and fourth seat at RAI were forced to miss this weekend meeting due to previous commitments. Sanford, for family reasons and Lagana to prepare for NHRA preseason testing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Crampton has been one of the most successful Australian racers to compete on the Mello Yello series with 10 career wins including rookie of the year honours in 2014.
