Funny Car Chaos Classic

FUNNY CAR CHAOS - Qualifying Round ONE

From a list of pre-entries that peaked at 54, there were 50 (mostly) ready to run cars in the pits at the Texas Motorplex when qualifying started on Friday afternoon for the 3rd annual Funny Car Chaos Classic. Things started a little slowly, with some breakage and three single runs before the action heated up when the first pair of nitro burners amped up the volume. But it took an NHRA Top Alcohol car, the 2022 FCC champion, Kirk Williams to break the performance ice with the first 3-second run of the weekend, a 3.674 - 209.17. That number only held for a few minutes, until another NHRA top ten runner, Kyle Smith, took over the top spot with a great 3.637 - 208.08 that held up as number one at the conclusion of the session.

Our photo coverage starts with "BIG" Bob Snyder's pics, but we'll be posting photos from our Colorado correspondent, Dale Fackler to round out the pictorial part of the Funny Car Chaos Classic story. It's going to take a while to get it all posted, especially the words to go with the pics, but stay tuned for regular updates over the next few days.
