There's nothing quite like Funny Car racing, and Sporting News writer Ryan Fagan got to experience it firsthand with the driver of the Kalitta Motorsports DHL Toyota, J.R. Todd. Fagan documented his experience with the recent winner of the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, going behind the scenes during the NHRA Carolina Nationals. 

From getting a chance to warm the the car up himself, to watching the flopper take off from the starting line, Fagan got an up-close experience with NHRA Drag Racing. Todd is having a great weekend himself, and is looking to start the Countdown to the Championship with his third win in five races.
