Front-Engine Top Fuel Class to Join MWDRS Show at St. Louis

The nitro-snorting, fire-belching, front-engine Top Fuel dragsters sponsored by Custom Floaters are set to come to World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Il. and put on a huge show for the fans in the Midwest. This class is part of the NHRA Heritage Series, but they’ve made the decision to compete in St. Louis June 17-18 with the Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service.

With help from Jim Young and Bobby McLennan, the All American Fuel Dragsters (AAFD) group is expecting to field a full 16 cars for this event. The AAFD competitors, who normally participate in quarter-mile action, will be testing their hand at eighth-mile action over the weekend, and are looking forward to all the craziness that comes along with eighth-mile combat. The class pays $5,000 to win and $2,500 to runner-up.

If you want to find out more about this heart pounding, breath snatching organization and their cars, you can head to the website at or over to their YouTube Channel and look for yourself. If you want to learn more about each driver, you can head over to the Mid-West Drag Racing Series site and look at all the driver profiles as well.

Event organizers believe this will be the largest gathering of front-engine Top Fuel cars in over 20 years. The event will also feature all the classes the the Mid-West Drag Racing Series offers, including Top Alcohol Funny Car, Pro Mod, Top Dragster, Top Sportsman, and Juniors.
