1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's most exciting era! Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing of the past.





Funny-Car Fires
Before asking why is it funny please read this.The car is a Funny-Car. In drag racing there are different classes of cars one of which is Funny-Car so named because in the early days the cars were made from stock looking cars but the rear wheels were moved forward which made them look "funny". The term "funny car" was just away of describing the class these cars compeated in, it has since become the official name for the class. Drivers in Order of apperance - Billy Meyer - Gary Densham - Commentary by the legendary Steve Evans & Don 'The Snake' Prudhomme.
