Tally up another white knuckle, never been done before drag racing creation from the mind of promoter Chris Graves as the announcement was made in a partnership with Gerald Kramer and Iowa’s Eddyville Raceway Park to host the Inaugural Nitro Chaos event, set for July 30-31st. From the Funny Car Chaos series to the Pro Mod vs. Fuel Altered Showdown event in Texas each summer, Graves adds another unique entertainment minded drag race to the calendar for next year at a facility known for its nitro-themed spectator draw. It’s an all nitro affair and it should be thrilling as the ‘run whatcha’ brung’ format from Funny Car Chaos is carried into this event with only one rule, you must run a minimum of 80% nitromethane in the fuel tank.
“I’ve had this race outlined on paper for a few years, but couldn’t find the time to dive into making it happen," said Graves. "Gerald Kramer (owner of Eddyville Raceway Park) called one day this summer about doing a similar event and thirty minutes later we had a deal. A well-managed facility is critical to an event’s success, and Gerald and his son Kyle and the team at ERP bring years of experience to the table, which made this decision an easy one. We get requests all the time from racers wanting to add a class for their style car to the Funny Car Chaos series, but that takes a lot more than most realize. This event caters to anything, and we mean anything, on nitro. Fuel altereds, Funny Cars, rear engine dragsters, front-engine dragsters, door slammers, whatever. If it's tippin’ 80% or better in the tank, it's game on at Nitro Chaos.”
