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?!
