Question for the drag racing gurus


Recommended Posts

In my mid-teens I was into 1/25 funny cars, mostly  Revell and MPC kits.  I also built this kit, which for some reason popped into my mind today.  Looking at the box, it seems to be (technically) something other than a funny car.

As you can see, it's designated a "Pro Comp".  Would there have been a huge difference between the classes, and if so, what?

This car probably ran on alcohol instead of nitro, putting it into the (lower) Pro Comp classes.

Pro Comp was a class with supercharged alcohol (not nitro) funny cars, unblown nitro funny cars, blown alcohol dragsters and unblown nitro dragsters all competing for the same trophy.  Most pf the blown alcohol funny cars looked almost like their blown nitro brothers but Veney's cars were a lot swoopier than almost anything on the drag strip.  He pretty much dominated pro comp in the mid 1970's.
