RUMOR MILL - LAID BACK HEADERS FOR FUNNY CARS IN JEOPARDY?
Few technical advances have led to more performance gains and excitement for the Funny Car class than the process of laying back the headers. Could this performance practice be in jeopardy? We are told there is a meeting scheduled between the NHRA and Funny Car competitors in a possible move to standardize the angle of the headers. Word has it the NHRA has fielded some complaints about the process as of late. Let's see, twelve races into the season and midway through last year? Hmm.
