Funny Cars

The king of the quarter mile back in the 70' and 80's was the funny car. Their stage was the drag strips across America. These drag strips would be busting at the seams with spectators that wanted to hear and see the fire breathing, ground-shaking, fiberglass crusaders. Take a step back in time and enjoy the glory days of drag racing.

This year The Great Lakes Nostalgia Funny Car Circuit brought their Funny Car Nationals to Quaker City Motorsports Park in Salem, Ohio. The event was combined with Quaker City's annual nostalgia get together, The Quaker City Nostalgia Classic & Pace Performance Great Lakes Funny Car Nationals.

Twenty one funny cars raced the Chicago Style event with an East versus Midwest format with the quickest funny car from each region facing off in the final.

The first round saw 19 blown funny cars face off. This was the first weekend of racing at Quaker City this year so it was still a little green, which made for some exciting runs. One of the highlights of this round was the High Psi Arrow kicking one of timing blocks right at the freshly repainted Warpath Somerset.

It was that time of year again when the best nostalgia alcohol funny cars travel to a little track known as MCIR in the middle of Ohio corn country.

All week leading up to the event the weather was predicted to be mid to high 70's and sunny, they weren't wrong. By mid Friday the participants started to fill the pits with funny cars and gassers. Friday night some of the teams chose to make some test runs and others thought it would be a good time to socialize. Read More

After the turnout at last year's event we thought it would be tough to top, we were looking to have over 30 funny cars this year. As the week before the event progressed the number of expected funny cars were being whittled down due to various reasons. Friday came and the cars started to fill the pits. There was a wide range of cars from past entries to many new cars that had not been to the event before. Read More

As with any big gathering there were months of preparation and at times it seem like the race would never get here. Then in the blink of an eye it's over and we are planning for next year. The day started early with most of the funny cars already in the pits and being prepared for battle. This year there were eleven states represented and The Rainmaker injected funny car came from Canada. Read More
