“This event is still in its infancy and already establishing itself as one of the premier drag races of the year. At every CHAOS race, we aim to provide quality and entertaining drag racing and with the team at the Motorplex, that is a certainty at the Funny Car Chaos Classic. Our racers are very passionate and understand their role in providing entertainment for the fans on and off the track. I grew up a Motorplex kid. This is where my addiction to drag racing was born. I can remember chasing autographs from my favorites like Don Prudhomme, Eddie Hill, Kenji Okazaki, Dean Skuza and Lori Johns. My wife Tera earned her nostalgia nitro funny car license at the Motorplex. To now be promoting the biggest funny car race in the world at the same place I have so many memories is very cool,” says Funny Car Chaos series director Chris Graves.
