If I remember right -- the NHRA shortened the fule cars to 1000 feet saying that they needed to slow the cars down, the insurance company was making them due to speeds and to give the drivers a longer shut down.
So now the cars are testing and back up to 324 mph and 314 for the funny cars - -It sure seemed the plan worked -:butthead: the longer shut down deal is a joke - -- at that speed a blink of the eye and you have used up the 320 feet they gave up - once again no or improper action by the poweres that be.

The butter flies are still open until the 1/4 mile mark shortening the race was really pointless!!

Im pretty sure the day after they put the rule into effect, someone came on here & said "they will be right back up to those speeds in a matter of months."

Well.............. there you go.

NHRA doesn't have a clue on how to slow the cars down--and is scared to death the fans will stop coming if they do. They don't care if there is side by side racing, they are all about finish line speed.
