Heard on nitroreports.com that the Pat Austin Ford Shotgun motor will be legal for NHRA Heritage funny car series. This is the engine that Pat has been running in A/FD & it has gone 5.90's. The Austins do have a funny car that they will test with this engine, but Drew Austin says they will concentrate on A/FD in 2018. No plans as of yet that they will run in competition with the funny car, but it would be cool to see a real Ford once again. Also possibility that another funny car will run this engine. The engine will be available to whoever wants to run it.
