Kearney Raceway - Funny Car Chaos

Another week, another Funny Car Chaos event. This weekend it's coming from Kearney Raceway in the heart of corn country. Last night's second qualifying session was pretty much a write-off due to unseasonably cold track temps (62 F!), but the first session, in the early afternoon was a good one. This exhibition event (to replace the cancelled Martin, MI points race) featured a wild assortment of Fuel Altereds, some on nitro, some on alky, one turbocharged, along with some new faces to the Chaos show.

Here's our first installment of Friday's qualifying, with much more to follow. As always, stay tuned!

Motes & Williams - Top Gas Dragster --- Pit Thrash

(LEFT) Here's something you don't see every day: an honest-to-goodness twin-engine blown gas-burning Top Gas Dragster from 1970. Fifty years ago, Ray Motes drove and partner R.C. Williams wrenched this behemoth to some of the most awesome performances of that era.
