Special awards for the Inaugural Funny Car Reunion were announced
today at a lavish ceremony at Bob's Berserko Lounge in Charlotte, NC. An
additional $1,250 in cash and merchandise is up for grabs for drivers
participating in what is going to be a history-making event. Awards
The Doug Herbert Performance Parts/Draglist.com Burnout Challenge
will award $250 in cash from Draglist.com and $250 in merchandise from
Doug Herbert Performance Parts to the driver who, in the crowd's
opinion, does the best burnout. This is a contingent award; decals from
the sponsors must be on the race cars in order to take advantage of this
award. They will be available at the Funny Car Reunion.
The DragRacingOnLine.com Dry Hop Contest will award $250 in cash to
the driver who does the best dry hop in the opinion of Jeff Burk,
Publisher/Editor of DragRacingOnLine.com. Again, decals will be required
to cash in and will be available at the event.
And here's a real special award. Freddy Frey and Jim Fox, owners of
the "Frantic Ford" Mustang Funny Car in the late 70s have put
up $250 for Low E.T. and $250 for Top Speed of the event in the memory
of their driver "Dodger" Glenn who was killed in a racing
accident in 1978. This is a non-contingent award.
If a driver does everything right by running below 6.50 twice, wins
both contests, sets Low E.T. and Top Speed, he can walk away with $2,750
for two runs, not a bad payout for a "Classic" Funny Car.
