[P.A. Announcer]

All right, outta sight, go, go, and go!

It is time for the final round

of the funny car eliminators...

at the annual Edmonton

International Speedway-

[Engine Revving]

I tell you what- in the left lane we've got

the nitro-breathin FastCo Firebird...

driven by Billy 'The Kid' Brooker.

This is Billy's second year

as a funny car driver,

but he's young,

he's fast and he's brash.

He'll do everything he can...

to keep up

with the seasoned veterans

of the funny car wars.

In the right lane, number one

in the Pacific Northwest right now,

Gary "The Blacksmith" Black!

They're creeping up on the line.

They're pre-stage.

They're stage.

They're gone!

All right, we've got our winner!

Its Gary Black, and he smokes through

the quarter mile at 218 miles an hour,

and he gets an E.T. of 6.63.

Now, that is smokin, folks!

Billy, better luck next time.

I know youre gonna be back.

Get outta here.

Youre getting a little too much

wheel spin off the line.

Take it easy when you

drop the hammer next time, Billy boy.

I thought I'd get that whole shot

on him, you know.

He's usually geared up pretty high.

Yeah.

- Didnt work out.

- Ah, you did all right anyway.

[Laughing]

Hey, Elder, youre teaching the kid

some of Lonnie Johnsons tricks.

[Laughs]

All that smoke, man.

Whew! pretty.

Just dont win races.

Hey, Gary, give me a few more runs.

All right?

Then you'll be

suckin my pipes.

Oh, yeah. Sure.

Been civil chattin to ya...

meathead.

[Engine Starts]

Go ahead.

[Revving]

[idling]

[Billy] So youre the girl

thats gonna be Miss FastCo, right?

Yeah.

My name's Candy.

[P.A. Announcer, indistinct]

You must be

Lonnie Johnsons mechanic.

No, no, no. Im Billy the Kid.

I drive a funny car.

[Engine Revving]

That fun machine right there.

That one?

Yeah, that's the one.

It's beautiful.

[P.A. Announcer]

Let me guess whether I'm right or not.

Youre waiting for the Lonnie Johnson

double-A top fuel machine.

And listen, the current standing

has Lonnie Johnson...

at number 18,

but I'd say tonight Lonnie Johnson

is number one in your hearts!

What do you say, fans?

[Cheering, Applause]

Hey, man.

How's it goin?

Good, good.

You got a car yet,

or you still riding a bicycle?

[Engines Racing]

[P.A. Announcer]

All right, ladies and gentlemen,

it is time to get serious now...

at Edmonton International Speedway.

It is the first elimination round of these

incredible double-A top fuel machines.

Now in the right lane

I want you to welcome,

driving the Wheeler Dealer car,

that's Terry Koepp down there!

All right!

[Applause, Cheering]

Now in the left lane,

a man-

You'd better watch

that left foot of yours

off the line.

You got a lot more horses back there

than you ever had before.

[P.A. Announcer]

David Paul Cronenberg, CC OOnt FRSC (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, actor and author.
