Inside every Top Fuel driver could be a Funny Car daredevil just waiting to get out.
J.R. Todd, 34, admits racing a Funny Car was on his so-called bucket list, even though he's not officially old enough to have one of them.
Todd, who joined Kalitta Motorsports in March 2014 as a Top Fuel driver, will move over to the Funny Car position vacated by Del Worsham. Filling Todd's seat in the SealMaster dragster will be Troy Coughlin Jr.
"I never once expected to be taking over driving the Scott Kalitta car," Todd said. "That’s a special car for the Kalitta team. With one of the greatest drivers ever has been driving it, Del Worsham, I expected him to finish his career there, and definitely not anytime soon. There had been talk of me making some runs in one of our cars just to crossover my license."
