Hunter Hops into Synoil Racing NHRA Alky Flopper

Synoil-TAFCTop Alcohol driver Greg Hunter will be taking over driving duties of the Geoff Goodwin-owned Synoil Racing Top Alcohol Funny Car.

Hunter will fill the seat previously occupied by three-time NHRA Heritage Series Funny Car champion Jason Rupert, who will compete in IHRA’s Prostalgia Funny Car class in 2014.

“I’m very excited to join the Synoil Racing team and get back in a supercharged, methanol-burning Funny Car. Jason did a great job driving the car for the past few seasons, so I have some big shoes to fill. I’m looking forward to the challenge,” said Hunter, who drove Kenny Gilmour’s ExactAir Top Alcohol Dragster for the past two seasons.

“With Jason Rupert’s departure to run his own car, we are very fortunate to have a great driver of Greg’s caliber join our team. We wish Jason continued success in his endeavor and welcome Greg and his family to Synoil Racing,” said Geoff Goodwin, owner of the Synoil Racing Top Alcohol Funny Car team.

The Wyoming driver and the Synoil Energy Services Top Alcohol Funny Car team will run a full schedule of west coast NHRA LODRS national and regional events in 2014.
