The Mooneyes Dragster is a dragster owned, built and raced by Dean Moon. In 1961 Dean gained national attention when he built the famous Mooneyes Dragster. Built from a Dragmaster Chassis Kit, the dragster was built as a test-bench and promotional tool. It was initially powered by a Potvin blown Chevy, and at its first outing in 1961 it went 147 mph at 10.29 seconds. In 1962 the dragster was changed to a top mounted blower. Gary Cagle drove it 153.06 mph at 9.52 seconds, and won the Middle Eliminator at the Winternationals.
