Jim Dunn Racing Funny Car driver Alex Laughlin is now an officially licensed Funny Car driver. He had been testing in California the past two days.

Laughlin joined the team in December at the Performance Racing Industry’s event in Indianapolis. The Texas native joined the team following the departure of Jim Campbell.

“It’s another Dunn deal, dude!,” Laughlin said in a Facebook post. “Leaving California as an officially licensed Funny Car driver. We made 7 runs: One that grenaded some parts, a couple that shook, one that I got to pedal, one that dropped a hole and shoved me to the wall, one (shown) with no parachutes, and a couple of fast and straight runs as well. I’m happy to learn this way because I was able to experience so many scenarios and learn how to react to each one. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all involved.

“Thank you to the folks here on social because the amount of support I’ve felt over the last few days is of nothing else comparable, y’all have been so great and I can’t thank you enough. #funnycar #fc40″

Laughlin will make his Funny Car debut in March. The NHRA will kick off their 2023 season at the historic Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, Florida on Friday, March 10th.

His first eliminations with the team will be on Sunday, March 12th.
