They have more appeal than rail dragsters, and their explosive acceleration never fails in bringing a crowd to its feet. This colorful book examines the evolution of funny cars from the 1960s to present and features interviews with legendary drivers like Don Nicholson, Don Prudhomme, and Dale Armstrong. Author Robert Genat delved deeply into the National Hot Rod Association archives to come up with a worthy tribute to the over-the-top spectacle which is a staple of televised motorsport and attracts 2.5 million fans to the dragstrip each year.
