Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

With one of the largest group of nitro funny cars in the pits in recent times, it was challenging to make the 16-car field…when all the clutch dust was settled, it was the Camaros that came out on top–not only setting top speed-Matt Bynum @ 259.61, Low E.T.-Bobby Cottrell @ 5.588, who was also #1 qualifier @ 5.650 / 259.31, setting the final round with Bobby Cottrell taking down event Runner-up Ryan Hodgson, 5.957 / 240.17, Bobby laying down a 5.723 / 241.41.

To reach the final round Cottrell had to take down Brad Thompson, Shawn Bowen & Steven Densham, while Hodgson faced off against Tim Boychuk, Paul Romine & Rian Konno…a stellar group of highly competitive drivers and teams.

With recent changes be made with new options on the usage of magnetos and the pumps being closely looked at, this promises to be a year of quicker fields across the nation and Canada. Be sure to follow this exciting NHRA Heritage Series nitro funny car class.
