This is the place to enter the 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour. Please place at least 2 but not more than 4 pictures of your drag car here (no on trailer photos) along with the following info;
2. driver and crew
4. sponsor info
5. history and etc.
Please post at least one 3/4 front view and one side view of your car shot with a plain white background.
You will have to furnish your quarter mile ET and MPH that you obtain from the following site. This is necessary so that I don't over nor underestimate the potential of your entry.
Just input your car's weight and flywheel HP, then hit the calculate button. Your entry will be considered incomplete without this information.
Just build, or substantially rebuild, an entry for the 2016 Southern Fryed Drag tour. The 2018 SNRA Southern Fryed Drag tour is open to any newly built or rebuilt, purpose built drag racing car or truck. We are hoping for new, purpose built cars this year. Post your "work in progress" in the http://z8.invisionfree.com/Scale_Racing_Lobby/index.php?showforum=19 Only completed entries go in replys here.
NO bracket racers nor motorcycles will be accepted this year.
The cut off date for the first race will be February 7, 2018. That will give you 38 days to enter the first race. If you miss that deadline, you will start with the second race. Once entered, you will be entered for the rest of the season.
http://z8.invisionfree.com/Scale_Racing_Lobby/index.php?showtopic=11155 will start on Feb. 10, 2018. Feel free to ask any questions.

|Ok, I'll give this a shot. From beautiful downtown Podunkville, Me, Ol Lefty hisself, has pulled out his very own personal toy from the back of the shop. An original Bill Knafel 62 Pontiac SD 421 Cat. I call it my Rompin' Redskin. It's fun to take on the street and embarrass the young crowd in their Ricers with Fart Can Exhausts. The sound of the 421 with un-corked headers usually sends em home. Now us Podunkville boys don't have any of those top fuel rails and such, we just got stockers and fender flappers.
1962 Pontiac Catalina with lightweight goodies
421SD Pontiac rated at 405 HP but makes 455
3800 Pounds of sled
11.61 ET @116.44
Crew and driver is just me, Lefty. Nobody else wants anything to do with it.
And No, it does not have the swiss cheese chassis.
Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it.

| Also From Beautiful Podunkville we have the Brennecke Brothers, Curt and Carl, with a 65 Nova AWB entry. After much discussion and arguments between Carl and Curt, it was decided that Gretchen Brennecke will do the driving. They did the reflex test…………you know, where you drop a dollar bill between someones fingers and see if they can catch it? Well, Carl and Curt failed the test three out of three times and Gretchen grabbed it all three times. I figure that is due to her having a Black Belt in Aikido. Ya don't smart mouth that little gal much unless you want yer elbow dislocated or your knee sore for a week. (I don't know that from first hand, but I seen it done)

| I no sooner make the statement "Us Podunkville boys don't have any of those Top Fuel thingies" and Ol Agnes Cudahy Backscheider unlocks her huge warehouse and s out a beast. Ok, I was wrong. Agnes says that while racing in Bakersfield back in 1974, she met a really nice drag racer named Anthony and his wife. At the end of the meet, he offered to sell her his top fuel car at a bargain. Agnes bought it and it has remained in her warehouse ever since. She said that in 2003 she contacted Anthony and he sent her some note books with information on the Fueler and tuning specs he used in the day. She told me Anthony passed in 2004. Agnes, with her son Horace as the wrench and Emily as the Driver will enter this beast. I sure hope Emily is up to this. Agnes says they have one spare engine that she purchased from "Big Daddy" in 1981 and will use it if Emily pops the one in the car. Agnes says they have one other rear engine top fuel car she bought from a little gal named Lori back around 1991 but they don't have that one any where near ready to race. Good luck Emily, and DON'T drive like Danica. We don't want to call you the "Queen of Crash".
74-75 Rear engine Top Fuel Digger
Engine--Keith Black Hemi 426 @ 1100 HP
6.00 ET @ 225.37 MPH
