NHRA legends "Big Daddy" Don Garlits, Don "the Snake" Prudhomme, Shirley Muldowney, Joe Amato, Ed "the Ace" McCulloch, Kenny Bernstein, Warren Johnson, and Terry Vance will compete in these custom Toyota Camrys during NHRA's Unfinished Business competition at the 50th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals.
Each driver had a hand in creating the custom look of their car, calling on their long histories in the sport.
Garlits forsook his trademark black for a look that emulates his recent Stock eliminator entry.
Prudhomme's car is a tribute to his famed world championship-winning U.S. Army Funny Cars of the 1970s.
Muldowney, of course, went with the pink scheme for which she was associated throughout her career, but also added the Shirley's Kids charity.
Amato's blue and white machine is a reference to his championship-winning dragsters of the early 1990s.
McCulloch's long series of Revellution Funny Cars was the inspiration for his Unfinished Business entry.
Bernstein, who made history with the first 300-mph pass at the 1992 Gatornationals, references his "King of Speed" nickname on a trademark red and white scheme.
Johnson's famed black and silver Pro Stockers of the late 1990s provided the template for his Toyota.
The Vance & Hines business and his current association with Harley-Davidson are key to the look of Vance's entry.
Fans will soon have the opportunity to vote for the first-round pairs they would like to see compete.
