Too bad this run was on a test night and not an actual race or qualifying because this would have been a world record folks. Antron Brown in florida Feb 5 2011. Fastest time of the night was Brown 3.77 at 324mph. Tony Scumacher went 3.77 at 311mph. Capps, force, pedregon, height, bernstein all were here. Palm beach international raceway.

out the sound on this one, lol.
Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer
at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he
blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top
speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously
held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the
2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a
great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577
second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal
best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking
forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
Tony Schumacher 4.428 @ 327 MPH
Tony Schumacher beats Melanie Troxel in the final round of Top Fuel at the
Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals at
Pomona, running 4.428 @ 327.98 mph, he resets the national record for E.T.,
and wins the 2006 Top Fuel Championship over Doug Kalitta. This is
remembered as "The Run" a final round, national record-setting run at the
last race on the final pass that gave the U.S. Army team the championship
title. The memorable 4.428 second pass is being regarded as the greatest
single run in NHRA history by many drag racing historians.
Diesel Funny car
This thing will eventually top 200 mph. I think its less than a year old
and they are still perfecting it. Its a Top Fuel funny car chassis and
body with a Cummins diesel engine with turbo AND Nitrous. The RPMs they can turn are just amazing.
