"BIG" Bob Snyder's next road trip

FCC San Antonio --- FCC Odessa --- Pro Mod vs Fuel Altered Showdown

Despite battling some health issues over the past year, it appears that Bob is ready to battle the highways as he embarks today on a 19-day circuit of drag racing events in the Southwest U.S. This weekend he's attending the FUNNY CAR CHAOS event at San Antonio, TX's Alamo City Raceway as he kicks off the three week trip. Next weekend it's another FCC event in Odessa, TX at Penwell Knights Raceway and then he hits the highlight of the trip. It's the 8th annual "Extravaganza of Insanity" (my working title for this race). The only... the only... Pro Mod -vs- Fuel Altered Showdown at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, TX.

The Pro Mod vs Fuel Altered event is an offshoot of promoter/photographer extraordinaire Chris Graves burgeoning Funny Car Chaos circuit, as he picked up, and eventually ran with, an event idea that was first tried at Lone Star Raceway in 2002. Pitting outlaw Pro Mods against similarly unconstrained by any rules, Fuel Altereds, in a no-holds-barred showdown of drag racing at it's wildest. Fittingly, the first winner of the event was (who else?) Frankie "The Mad Man" Taylor, who defeated fellow Texan Mitch King, driving a full-on blown fuel 23-T roadster (engine out of King's IHRA Top Fuel car).

After two years of running the annual showdown, the promotion lay dormant for a decade until Graves resurrected it in 2013, at North Star Dragway, where it remained until moving to Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, TX. This year's event already has 25 pre-entries - 13 Fuel Altereds and 12 Pro Mods - and the list includes most of the heavy hitters in the respective classes, including the inaugural champion, "The Mad Man" himself. The rules are very simple, as in virtually no rules outside of the obvious safety requirements. We can't wait to see Mr. Snyder's report on this event, but first, he's got to make it through back-to-back weekends of Funny Car Chaos.

This week the FCC gang pulls into Alamo City Raceway with a full field of floppers guaranteed to be in the pits, including a number of cars that missed at least one of the first two events on the 2020 calendar. Pre-entries as of this morning are at 17 for Alamo City and 21 for next weekend's race at Penwell Knights. And as stated above, there's already 25 cars pre-entered for the "PM vs FA Showdown.

We've run out of time to post the 2020 drag racing calendar today, but it will be up very soon, along with more news on what's happening in the world of drag racing. Stay tuned!
