Things had not been going well for Matt Hagan in the Mopar Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

CRUZ, LANGDON EXCHANGE VERBAL JABS

 

It all started with a tweet; then escalated to words exchanged on national television.

NHRA Funny Car racer Shawn Langdon expressed his dissatisfaction with what he felt was a subpar show for the fans at the NHRA New England Nationals in Epping, NH.

Langdon tweeted, “Maybe if @NHRA “thinks” 65/35 spray is good on a 135+ degree racetrack, they should refund the fans for a poor show #Q1fail #everyonewassmokingthetires”

NHRA made the switch to having both Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars race to 1000-feet, instead of the traditional quarter-mile (1,320 feet) in July of 2008 at the Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colo., near Denver, and that’s where the racing distance for these two classes has remained.
