Nostalgia Funny Car Team Goes All The Way

Don Schumacher Racing’s Top Fuel champion tuners Brian Corradi and Mark Oswald are going to help on a Funny Car from Ohio at the 55th March Meet in Famoso.  Jeez!

Isn’t that a bit of overkill?  I guess Corradi has helped Wayne Mellinger of Wayne Mellinger Racing on his Nostalgia Funny Car Corvette in the past.   Mellinger is out of North Ridgeville, which is a suburb southwest of Cleveland.  That happens to be the same area Corradi is from.

Since Mark Oswald is a Californian and the March Meet marks an off weekend prior to the Gatornationals, the two super-tuners have time to be in Bakersfield and work on a Nostalgia car.  Of course, working on a Nostalgia Funy Car is not anywhere near the pressure of a pro Funny Car where NHRA has nitro teams now having to execute 50 minute turnover times per round (see related articles).

So the guys that usually tune world champ Antron Brown will be at Famoso Raceway, taking in the fun that is the March Meet.   The March Meet is the largest Nostalgia drag race in the world along with being one of the most famous.  It all starts in 10 days.

But using arguably the best tuners in the world for your Nostalgia Funny Car?!

    seeings how Brian Corradi is half owner of the car i think its not over kill. i crewed for that car.

  2. I wondered if he had a vested interest. Still, having his fellow crew chief Oswald come aboard seems like bringing a bazooka to a knife fight. Interesting to see how they do.

    Get real guys, the Nostalgia tuneup is way different than what they are running on Antrons car, ever think these guys are all friends and want to just go have fun? Jeez lighten up a little!
