Don Schumacher Racing (DSR)

By , Photography by Car Craft Archives

If you’re a fan of NHRA drag racing, you know Don Schumacher Racing (DSR). Don’s son, Tony, won six NHRA Top Fuel Championships, and during the 2012 season, DSR won both the Top Fuel championship with Antron Brown driving and the Funny Car championship with Jack Beckman at the wheel. The Second Place cars were also from DSR, with greats Ron Capps and Tony Schumacher driving. You might have guessed this didn’t happen overnight. This photo from the early ’70s features one of Schumacher’s early Plymouth Funny Car teams. Schumacher, known as “The Shoe,” retired from drag racing in 1974 to raise his family and build Schumacher Electric, a global company that likely built your battery charger.

there's more combined horsepower parked right there in these 3 cars than in my entire neighborhood (germany). :D

When I first seen them I thought of the Matchbox cars or Hot Wheels. Nice collection.
