    youll have to confirm thats 1/4 mile and not 1000 feet, nhra changed the rules for shorter tracks ever since that famous racer died a few years ago during a top fuel run went wrong.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    The strip is a 1/4 mile. but ever since the death of a top NHRA drag racer about 4 years ago all top fuel and funny car races take place up to 1000 feet now, not 1320 feet.

    Matt Hagan did not do 3.99 in the 1/4, it was 1000 feet, 1/4 miles are no longer sanctioned in the NHRA for 300+ mph cars due to safety reasons.

    I thought that rule was rescinded and it was only top fuel doing that anyway?
