Go America Racing Top Alchohol Dragster

The Go America Racing team is running a Top Alcohol Dragster on the NHRA circuit. The car is powered by a 3,000 horsepower 470 cubic in. Keith Black Hemi and can cover a quarter mile in just over 5 seconds.

Top Alcohol vs. Top Fuel
Top Alcohol Dragster or TAD is one of the fastest classes in NHRA racing and has a huge fan base. These cars look very similar to Top Fuel Dragsters (TFD). In many cases, the TAD and TAD cars are exactly the same. The main differance is the fuel they burn. TAD cars burn alcohol (methanol) as the name suggests. TFD cars burn nitromethane which allows the car to make more horsepower with the same size engine. TAD is a much more popular class among the teams because it is possible to run a car without a multi-million dollar budget.
