They are the track-burning machines of the professional Pro/stock class, replacing fuel funny cars as drag recing’s most popular class. Externally identical in appearance to popular street machines such as the Chevy Beretta, Pontiac Firebird and Ford Probe, they are thoroughbred racing machines under the skin.

His tubular frame Firebird sports the latest advances in chassis technology including a funny car “cage” sorrouding the driver.
