In NHRA racing, there are lots of intricacies that make this sport not only about the fastest car but also about the smartest team and driver.

This time, we dive into one of those intricacies that happens during the staging of the Funny Cars in a process that’s better known as “going on the high-side.”

We dive into a real-time race scenario as Bruno Massel and Robert Hight break down going on the high-side and how the car will perform differently because of it.
