Blink And You'll Miss The Fastest NHRA Funny Car Run Of All Time

19-time NHRA Funny Car winner, 2012 national champion and cancer survivor Jack Beckman is used to beating things, but may not have expected to add “national record” to the list. This 323.43 mph, 3.921 second run last Friday at Sonoma Raceway was the fastest in Funny Car history.

The pass was backed up with a 3.958 second run on Saturday, which officially gave Beckman the national Funny Car record for elapsed time (ET).


It’s so ridiculously quick that if you blink or turn away or SQUIRREL!, you’ll miss it. Crank up the volume and enjoy this fire-spitting, record-breaking delight.
