HAVANA, Ill. --

This "Funny Car Friday" we are proud to announce a third Funny Car Chaos date for the 2018 season as this one of a kind funny car frenzy will blast through the gates of Central Illinois Dragway in Havana, Illinois on Friday and Saturday, July 27th and 28th! Funny Car Chaos made big news with it's debut event in September of 2017 as the only place in the world where you'll witness no rules funny car racing. A true run what you brung affair, Funny Car Chaos welcomes any and all funny cars regardless of engine combination or body style. Over twenty cars from across the country attended the inaugural event which contested two fields respectively won by Washington's "Mr. Explosive" Mark Sanders and Texan Andy Mears. The enthusiasm from racers and fans alike motivated event promoter Chris Graves to expand the program with three events in 2018 and Illinois will be the first event held outside the lone star state.

"Texas will always be home for Funny Car Chaos and we are very excited about our two Texas dates at North Star Dragway and Amarillo Dragway, but we have always planned to showcase funny cars across the country and expand our fan base. Central Illinois Dragway is a perfect fit for our event with it's location and grassroots vibe, we feel confident in a great turnout and spectator experience for our July race in Illinois. We are also excited to give the opportunity to experience Funny Car Chaos to dozens of teams in the area, who have never had a chance to be a part of something so unique. It will be a lot of fun and something these fans and teams have never seen before, be sure to join us for this celebration of all things funny car!" said Graves.

No rules funny car racing folks! Any body style, any engine combination, as long as the car and driver safety equipment is up to par you are legal to enter this horsepower extravaganza. The Illinois event will be an open outlaw sixteen car qualified field paying $5,000 to win and offering over $23,000 in purse money made available to all sixteen qualifiers. Don't miss out on all the fun and excitement as Funny Car Chaos invades Central Illinois Dragway! Funny car fans and teams in the southwest can look forward to Funny Car Chaos at historic Amarillo Dragway June 1st & 2nd and North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas on September 14th & 15th! We highly suggest you check this out in person. Find out more about this rapidly growing outlaw funny car movement by visiting!
