In general terms, drag racing is the fastest form of motor racing; within drag racing, Top Fuel is the fastest of the classes. Top Fuel has always been the leading class in terms of technology, cost, excitement and speed. Over the years, technology has changed greatly. What started out as a flathead engine, four wheels, frame rails and a steering wheel has morphed into technological wonders producing horsepower figures in the thousands and running super charged nitromethane cars over the quarter mile in the 4-second range.

Over the course of the evolution of these technological developments int he late 1960s and early 1970s, Top Fuelers were making enough horsepower so that sitting directly behind the engine, as the diggers did in the 1950s through the 1960s was recognised as a fairly dangerous proposition for the driver. Any blower explosion or clutch and bell housing failure occurred directly in the face of the driver. Teams and engineers developed the rear engine layout that is still in use today, where the engine sits behind the driver but in front of the rear wheels.
