Plus - different teams likely have sponsorship or factory support direct to the manufacturer of these Funny Car bodies - so I doubt that $60,000 comes from the teams budget for each body.
And no doubt the costs are lower for the teams with in-house chassis shops that can "tree and tin" their bodies.... which happen to be the teams with factory sponsors.

Never seen so many holeshot wins at one race in my life, especially in the fuel ranks.

I should have said lunch. You were weighing your car when we were getting our headers measured and your car looks really good.

How did they measure the headers? Was the template on the ground or some other way?

They had a fixture designed with the angle they were looking for.
