Default Dom Lagana Sets All-Time TF Speed Mark

Well, this is kind of interesting - Saturday night at Michigan's US131 track, top fuel racer Dom Lagana ran 338.35mph - an alltime TF top speed record - in the quarter mile.

Anyone still missing the days of the 1320?

US131 was one of my favorite tracks. Reminds me when Paul Romine ran the first sub 5 second pass in his nostalgia top fuel car and most claimed the timing system must have been wrong.

Its not getting there that is the problem, its the extra 320 feet you get to stop.

Great time slip picture, shows what you could expect when a don don car goes 3.69

I don't think there has ever been a sub 5 second pass in nostalgia top fuel. I just can't imagine an Eddie Hill moment with a front engine car.

Paul Romine did make the first sub 6 second pass at US41 in Morocco, IN though.

Sorry, I should not have written sub 5 second, just 5 second pass.

Nostalgia top fuel might shave down into the 30's if they let them run the 17 inch wide funny car tire.

Posting this here.


Look at that 1000' time. Is a tenth decrease in 1000' time equal to a tenth decrease in 1/4 time? Or more than a tenth in 1/4 time?

3.65 in 1000' = 4.30? 1/4 mile

Assuming it can live that long

Nope, not kidding. But hey, I've been wrong before, maybe he knew something I didn't!

Monster run! This will certainly play into the 1/4 debate for the Aussies.
