Maybe I Dreamed this… But did the NHRA ever do a Funny Car vs Top Fuel event in the late 90s to early 2000s?


I was probably really sick one weekend but I remember sometime circa 1999-2001 that NHRA did a Funny Car vs Top Fuel event that aired on either TNN or ESPN.

It was done like a non points Shootout event like the Bud Shoot and used an Index racing format.

Maybe it was Top Alcohol? Top Dragster (which I believe is an Index/Brakcet class) But I’ve been Googling it for over 10 years now and it’s never turned up. I’ve found other match races such as Brittany Force vs John but not an official event.

I remember computer graphics, E.T. times and the professional camera angles. As well as announcers. The event was each race as a Top Fuel Dragster vs a Funny Car.
