A necessary trade-off, unfortunately.

Everyone knows why fuel cars race at 1000 feet. It wasn't BECAUSE of Scott Kalitta's accident; Scott's misfortune was the CATALYST that pushed NHRA to...

His closest competitor, Millican, is 162 points behind. Millican will have to win both remaining races and Torrence will basically have to fall apart in order for anything to change. Torrence just...

All the more reason for a 20% OD if you're determined to slow the field. Taking a bunch of fuel away from one of the current configurations almost guarantees leanout conditions and a LOT of expensive...

I realize it was under favorable conditions, but Ron Capps won the Carolina Nationals with a 3.89/332 pass...and the Top Fuel final produced a pair of 3.70 ETs. Those aren't records but if the crowds...

Theoretically, yes, up to the point of diminishing returns...but realistically, no, because NHRA limits the blower OD to 50 percent except at Bandimere. And unless they're dialing them back because...

Ronnie Milsap could see this coming. Reduced prep instantly slowed the dragsters to 3.80 with an occasional high 3.70 (at around 320mph) in ideal conditions...the floppers to 4.0's with an occasional...

Exactly. I understand the driver/football team comparison but it's not the same. The QB is the central part of an 11-man team at the 'hut'; the driver IS the team; the one and only person who counts...

Of interest....FF to 6:00 and listen to Warren Johnson's flat crank PS engine. I was there when this was filmed. Sounded just like a high winding Comp Elim straight 6 entry. He explains afterwards.

Sometimes you just 'lose the handle' on these cars, often a slump that lasts for 8-10 races or more. Look at...
