So I’m going to get straight to the point. A few years ago at an NHRA event I was planning on attending but was ultimately unable to had a class of car listed. At the time I did a bunch of research on the class but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of the class and google hasn’t been much help. I’ll explain some key things I remember:
It had a short wheel base
Was referred to as the most dangerous class and not may people were willing to get in the cars
Almost as powerful as top fuel
One of the well known drivers in the class stated “you dont drive these cars, you hold on and pray they stay in a straight line”
There was an accident one time when the car was going towards the crowd and the driver managed to pull the chute at the right time and the chute wrapped around a pole stopping the car and saving the spectators
I believe the name was along the lines of “fuel modified”
That’s most of what I remember and it has been a few years so some of it may be off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
