Pix: The Serious Business of Funny Cars

Tony Pedragon, owner of and primary driver for Pedragon Racing LLC, will tell you drag racing "funny cars" is no joke; especially when the engines of said cars can crank out up to 10,000 hp and fling them from zero to 351 mph over just 1,000 feet in about 4 seconds. Pedragon brought two of his mean drag racing machines -- plus his team's long-haul tractor-trailer transporter -- to the 2014 Rush Truck Center Technician Skills Rodeo.
