Crazy Pro Mods

Perhaps my favorite class in drag racing has to be the awesome Pro Mods.  There is such a diversity of body styles and engine types.  The bodies must be full size with opening doors and three types of power can be used.  1. Supercharged running on methanol.  2. Turbocharged.  3. Nitrous injected.  There is no limit to engine capacity, the biggest motor is over 14,000cc !

These cars race over the 1/4 mile and are a real handful.  The European records currently stand at 5.751 seconds for the ET and 260.11 mph.  Here are images of most of the race cars from the last three years.
