Fuel Curve Funny Car Headed to 31st West Coast Nationals

Our freshly-wrapped 1970 Camaro Fuel Curve Funny Car will be on display at this weekend’s Goodguys 31st West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton. Not only will it look bitchin’ sitting there, it will cackle to life during Saturday’s Nitro Thunderfest, Goodguys President and CEO Marc Meadors behind the wheel.

The car not only looks good, it hauls ass. At the recent Nightfire Nationals in Boise the car qualified 7th in a stout field of the nation’s best Nitro Funny Cars and ran as quick as 5.84 ET at 241 MPH. And the crew and car are still jelling. They are looking to run consistent 5.70s with the hopes of dipping into the 5.6 second zone later this fall at the NHRA California Hot Rod Reunion in Bakersfield.

The Fuel Curve Funny Car will be on display Thursday 8/24 at the Host Hotel before heading to the Fairgrounds Friday. The Nitro Thunderfest will be packed with players for a full-tilt blast of nitro nectar. Entrants include Jason Richey’s Twin Engine Dragster, John Keily’s potent digger, Pat Coyle’s radical 1960 Nitro Thunderbird, Brian Hall’s Tramp AA/FA, Ron Johnson’s TV Tommy Ivo Barnstormer and our car.
