Anyone watch these races? Every time they come to Alaska, I make sure I get to the race. Love watching them on FS1.
Two questions I've wondered about:
How are the funny-cars faster than the rails? Top fuel funny car is hitting 320+ MPH, where the top-fuel rails hit 310. I always figured the top-fuel rails would be the fastest thing on the track.
They'll say these funny-cars are "Mustangs" or "Chevy" or whatever. Really, these funny-cars have no factory parts in them and even the body style only vaguely resembles their named model.
