2222-year-old sheik spending $10M a year to become the Yankees of drag racing?

There are a number of parallels with an all-American tale of racing fan turned team owner: Man loves drag racing since boyhood, comes from a region crazy for the sport, started off in racing's little league, and races to win even in the big leagues. Yet the differences are enough to inform us that this is a Yankees tale, not an Oakland A's tale: the team owner in question is Qatari native Sheik Khalid bin Hamad Al-Thani, all of 22 years old, with a bank account that would make Croesus blush.

30Safety concerns cause NHRA to limit races to 1,000 feet

The NHRA has acted very quickly in an effort to improve the safety of its Top Fuel and Funny Car races. Due to the tragic death recently of '94 and '95 Top Fuel champion Scott Kalitta, the drag strip for these two fastest classes will be shortened from the traditional 1,320 feet to 1,000 feet.

Standin

5Huh, there's something funny about this funny car ...

Sure, all Funny Cars are a bit different. After all, they are so named 'cause they didn't quite look stock, hence the name "funny", according to the great and all-knowing Wiki. But, this one is even more strange in that it runs on 100 percent canola-based biodiesel, which enables the machine to travel the good old 1,320 in just 6.4 seconds at 250 mph. That is extremely fast in anyone's book.
