FUNNY CAR CHAOS REIGNS IN TEXAS
ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY ANTICIPATED EVENTS IN THE SOUTHWEST WAS FUNNY CAR CHAOS PRESENTED BY RED LINE SHIRT CLUB. CONTESTED AT NORTH STAR DRAGWAY IN DENTON, TEXAS,
THIS INAUGURAL RUN WELCOMED MORE THAN 20 F/CS TO A NORULES, RUN-WHAT-YA-BRUNG SHOWDOWN. THE FIELD INCLUDED NITRO, ALCOHOL, NOSTALGIA
AND EVEN TOPLESS FUNNY CARS. THIS BIZZARO CONCEPT, DREAMT UP BY CHRIS GRAVES, WAS CLEARLY A SUCCESS, AS THE PITS OVERFLOWED WITH RACERS AND FANS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
The Elite Eight A field was bested by “Mr. Explosive” Mark Sanders as he defeated final round competitor Keith Jackson, 4.12/141 mph to 4.25/154 mph. Both nitrofueled pilots had their hands full in this pedal-fest.
The B field saw two alky floppers duke it out. In the closest race of the event, Andy Mears defeated Jordan Ballew, 4.76/144 mph to 4.77/145 mph.
Two events will be held in
2018: a spring race at Amarillo Dragway and a return to North
Star Dragway in the fall. Check Funnycarchaos.com for updates.
