The Byron Dragway is known for hosting some of the meanest, fastest cars around. But this time, they had a little extra.

The dragway hosted a group of nitro funny cars from around the region. These cars cleared 200 miles per hour as they raced down the track, and carried more than 10,000 horsepower under the hood. It was a rare treat and display of power and speed for some of the area's biggest racing fans.
