The beat goes on, as "Funny Car Summer 2018" continues this weekend at Mission Raceway Park, with the NHRA Heritage Series nitro nostalgia Funny Cars racing for those ever-so valuable points towards their championship. If you've been keeping track of things so far, after five of seven events on the schedule, Shawn Bowen leads his closest challenger, Bobby Cottrell, by just 11 points (322 to 311).
The next nearest competitor, Tim Boychuk, is nearly 150 points in arrears, so it's looking like a two-team race for the championship. Therefore, Bowen is making his first trip to Mission Raceway in an attempt to hold off the hard charging Austin, O'Brien & Cottrell team, as they continue a mid-season surge which saw them take back-to-back wins in the United Nitro Funny Cars series at Spokane and Seattle two weeks ago.
It's been exactly one year since we ventured out to see a live drag race, and it's waaaay past time to set sail across the Salish Sea to check uut the action at MRP. We'll have all the coverage we can muster starting on Sunday and fill in the blanks during the next week. In the meantime, check out all our coverage from the Funny Car Nationals, the Pro Mods vs Fuel Altered Showdown, and results from the United Nitro Funny Cars races.
