Funny Car Chaos Lives Up To It's Brand With A New Twist

The Funny Car Chaos series was created in 2017 with one principle in mind more than any other; keep the platform simple with a run what you brung format open to all types of funny cars. That premise is now coming full circle with the upcoming Twisted Shifterz and 360-Steel Summer Nationals, Friday night and Saturday, June 17th and 18th at Cordova Dragway (Illinois), as several jet funny cars have entered the fray.

"We have never discouraged any jet funny cars from participating. My take has always been if the top flops, bring it on." said FCC series owner, Chris Graves. "It appears a handful of jet flopper teams want to try their hand in our series at Cordova and we're excited to have them. Before we confirmed their eligibility to compete, Cordova Dragway and I did check with the IHRA (of which Cordova is a member track) and got their authorization for this style of racing on the one-eighth mile format", he continued.

The addition of jet funny cars side by side with alcohol and nitro entries not to mention an occasional twin turbo or nitrous assisted entry is going to make this event one of the record books. The fans love Funny Car Chaos, and this is one additional component that will keep them hanging off the fences with anticipation.

"I'm very excited about the Funny Car Chaos series making its first ever appearance at Cordova and adding jets into the mix has also never been done before! We've got big plans for this race track and Chaos headlining the Summer Nationals is going to make for a very exciting weekend," says new owner of Cordova Dragway, and fellow jet funny car racer, Dan Crownhart.

Funny Car Chaos will qualify the quickest 24 flip top floppers on the property across three fields (A-B-C) of eight cars with payouts totaling over $35,000 in guaranteed money. The Summer Nationals also features an array of exhibition racing including Nitro Harleys, Gassers, Ozark Mountain Super Shifters and Sportsman racing.
