JONNIE LINDBERG, NHRA (TWICE) AND EUROPEAN TAFC CHAMP, IS CURRENTLY RESIDING IN JIM HEAD’S NITRO FLOPPER, AND DOING QUITE WELL, THANK YOU: TWO NATIONAL EVENT RUNNER-UPS, DESPITE A LATE SEASON START, IN THE TOP TEN. There’s a history of alky drivers turned tuner, including Dale Armstrong, Ken Veney and Ace Manzo, but not so much drivers moving to nitro rides. The Lindberg Brothers’ TAFC produced some incredible numbers. We’re wondering if Head, ever the innovator, is giving Jonnie computer time as well as seat time.
