Everyone was trying to build a “better mouse trap” during the 1960’s in Top Fuel action, and innovation was alive and well. Here is Jim Dunn, running his Top Fueler with the unusual “praying mantis” front end set up. Did it work? Well, how many others have you ever seen? Now days Jim Dunn tunes and owns the nitro Funny Cars driven by Tony Bartone on the NHRA/Powerade tour. For professional motorsports photography contact Steve Reyes at
