It was several weeks ago when teh NHRA requested input from Alcohol Funny Car racers as per the inclusion of the possibility of including a nitro injected engine in the Funny Car class similar to the TAD class. Apparently that won't happen as per this note on the NHRAracer.com website.
After careful review and consideration, as well as many hours of discussion regarding the many comments, the NHRA TAFC Rules Committee posted an unfavorable vote and has elected to table this concept. A/Fuel TAFC will not be a classification within TAFC at this time.
Again, we thank those that articulately conveyed their thoughts and assisted our Rules Committee members in a very productive manner. We look forward to seeing all of our TAFC competitors at the track in the very near future, as we start our Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series in just a few short days. Until then, take care and be safe!
