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.
