When you think about how fast NHRA Funny Car drivers are going, it really blisters the mind to think about how you can travel a quarter mile of distance in just under four seconds. That’s almost enough to make the back of your brain tap your skull.
This time, we take a ride with a recent NHRA Funny Car pass at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona as Jack Beckman comes oh so close to setting the record but instead has to settle for second place in terms of fastest Funny Car passes in history. That’s still nothing to scoff at!
In this demonstration, we watch as Jack barrels ass down the drag strip, breaking the beams at the finish line in just 3.825 seconds at a wild 332 mph to find his way into the record books.
Check out the video below as the Funny Car record nearly falls and Jack goes home with a number one qualifying position for the overall event. With records in a racing falling every day, left and right, it really leads you to wonder just how fast these things can really go when all is said and done.
