Drag racing fans have shown massive support for this no holds barred two day extravaganza, which showcases funny cars of all kinds in an eighth mile heads up competition. It’s a modern outlaw twist on a classic dry hoppin’ funny car show with back up girls and throttle whackin’ burnouts. Every ticket is a pit pass at Funny Car Chaos and the teams love to interact with their growing fan base in the pits and get the crowd involved in the show with huge burnouts and ground pounding flip top action. The number one rule is have fun and the goal for Funny Car Chaos series director Chris Graves is to peg the fun meter, host safe competitive funny car racing and make it as affordable as possible for racers and fans alike.
With the new points series comes a standardization of the event format and points structure. All events on the tour will qualify the quickest sixteen cars. Those cars will then be divided into two fields (A and B) of eight, and then run in a three round elimination ladder. Points will be awarded equally in both fields allowing for any racer, regardless of his qualifying field, to have a fair shot finishing in the top five at the end of the season. Points will be awarded to the driver and each driver will count the best six of their seven totals to determine their final total.
Each event hosts a $25,000 payout including all sixteen qualified spots and tow money for the first two alternates. The ‘A’ field will pay $5,000 to win and ‘B’ field will pay $3,000 to win. The Best of Texas BBQ Sauce Championship will award the top five points finishers and the Champion will claim the ultimate bragging rights and $5,000 for their accomplishment. The new season is shaping up to be highly competitive for Funny Car Chaos racers from Texas to Michigan and everywhere in between. Spy shots are pouring into Funny Car Chaos headquarters as racers see a potential new home for their drag racing efforts where fun is the number one rule and entertainment is a top priority. A massive thirty car field capped off a growth filled 2018 season and with that trend expected to continue, the sky is the limit for the new season of Funny Car Chaos competition and entertainment.
