Funny Car Chaos, a popular Funny Car-only series, will return in 2020 with an eight-race championship schedule.
The series will return to its regular stops at Pine Valley Raceway, Mo-Kan Dragway, Penwell Knights Raceway, Amarillo Dragway, and U.S. 131 Motorsports Park.
New to the tour is a summer stop in May at Eddyville Raceway Park in Iowa, as well two stops st Dallas-Fort Worth’s premier eighth-mile facility Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas.
The two-day Funny Car Chaos events feature Friday night qualifying under the lights and elimination rounds on Saturday with the quickest 16 cars earning a spot in the ‘A’ and ‘B’ fields of competition.
A series-record 29 cars from coast to coast battled for a spot in the final race of 2019 in Texas.
The 2020 season will mark the second year for the Funny Car Chaos World Championship points battle, won by inaugural Champion Ken Singleton of Oklahoma in 2019.
“We are very excited about the upcoming season and look forward to another great year of racing with this spectacular group of teams who have made Funny Car Chaos so special,” FCC founder and organizer Chris Graves said. “It is a blessing to have such strong support from these teams, but also the fans, track owners, and marketing partners that share the excitement and vision of the series.
“Crowning our World Champion Ken Singleton this year gave me goosebumps. This is the real deal, and it’s very entertaining racing for everyone involved. It’s all about having fun with your friends and family and enjoying the sport of drag racing.
“I’d like to thank all the racers who believe in what we are doing and to John Hale with Best of Texas BBQ Sauce, Randy Ranew with Red Line Shirt Club and our many other marketing partners for making our inaugural Championship season a reality. We can’t wait to kick off the new 2020 tour in March,” said series founder Chris Graves.”
The 2019 tour welcomed a whopping 51 drivers who competed in the seven-race campaign. Prioritizing companionship amongst its racers and the undeniable entertainment value of tire-smoking and header flaming side-by-side flip-top Funny Car action makes this an attractive show for drag racing fans. The open concept, which allows any Funny Car team to participate, regardless of engine combination or body style, creates a rewarding racing venue for racers who can build their cars to their liking and competitively compete in this unique format.
