4th annual Funny Car Chaos Nationals

It's a beautiful sunny Sunday morning in Kearney, NB. A perfect day for a drag race, but unfortunately, the 4th annual Funny Car Chaos Nationals eliminations were rained out on Saturday evening and won't be happening today. In the FCC world, a rain date isn't the day after a scheduled event, but in this case, nearly two months later. It was decided to postpone eliminations until the Mo-Kan race on September 1st and 2nd, and run them concurrently with the three qualifying rounds at that event. Sounds like it could turn into real chaos, along the lines of the combined Epping and Bristol NHRA national events earlier this year.

Despite last night's rainout, we've got photos from all three rounds of qualifying from the 32 cars in attendance. However, with two new racers licensing, and one testing, and some breakage, there were only enough healthy cars left to fill three fields, instead of the four that have been common this season. We'll be posting pics and results from qualifying over the next few days, and will have it finished by Tuesday evening. Just in time to get ready for a trio of big events next weekend. That will include the final DODGE Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals (Morrison, CO), the third of four Nitro Chaos events at Mo-Kan Dragway (Asbury, MO), and a doubleheader NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Wooburn, OR.

We will have "BIG" Bob Snyder at the Mo-Kan race, and our fingers are still crossed hoping that we'll have a photo credential for our Colorado correspondent, Dale Fackler to shoot from the starting line at the Mile-Highs. And if we really wanted to, Bobby Thunder could make the short trip down to Woodburn for the Western Region races, but the travel budget is still committed to next month's NHRA Heritage Series event at Boise (ID)'s Firebird Raceway: the 52nd annual Nightfire Nationals.
