Travel back to 1984, when the IHRA had parked its Top Fuel program in favor of just a fuel Funny Car class. One of the staples in the traditional schedule was in Milan, Michigan, the drag strip located outside of Detroit.
You'll see the legends such as Dale Pulde, Kenny Bernstein, Billy Meyer, Tom McEwen, Mark Oswald, and Raymond Beadle. The Pro Stocker are represented by Rickie Smith, Lee Shepherd, Darrell Alderman, Roy Hill, Joe Lepone Jr., and more. At the time, many of the sports big names ran both IHRA and NHRA because of Winston's involvement.
