It was the summer of '72 and a new class of racing called Funny Car was growing in popularity across the nation. The top places to race were the drag strips of Southern California where innovators were pulling up awesome times. Big John Mazmanian was running a Plymouth Barracuda that was smokin' the competition when Nelson Carter arrived from Oklahoma. Having established track records all across the country with his "Super Chief" Dodge Charger, the charismatic Carter became Big John's main competition and set the stage for a series of legendary match races. Their heated, yet friendly, rivalry is one reason the dog days of '72 became known as the Funny Car Summer!
