How hard could it possibly be drive a dragster? There’s only one other car on the track and you don’t have to steer. You just point the car toward the horizon, mash the gas and hold on, right? In this interview with members of the Kalitta Motorsports team, Tomorrow’s Technician Editorial Director Doug Kaufman finds out that piloting a 11,000 hp NHRA Top Fuel Funny Car or Dragster isn’t as easy as it looks. J.R. Todd, driver of the DHL Toyota Camry Funny Car and Rob Flynn, Crew Chief of the Mac Tools Top Fuel Dragster put old myths to rest and explain how today’s champion-caliber drivers are more than just passengers in some of the fastest cars on Earth.
