Notes: Long Nose 85-86. First lock-up clutch at Indy resulted in best ever times of 5.509 at 271.41, which were not backed up for records. Hit the first 5.40s with a 5.425 low qualifier at the Ennis Chiefs which was not backed up as a record. However, a 5.543 at Ennis was backed up as the new record. Ran 266.66 and 265.17 at 86 Chiefs. | This was Kenny's last year with the Tempo body and probably one of, if not, his best season. The NHRA season started at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He qualified first with a 5.60 and continued to run 5.60's in the first two rounds over Rick Johnson and John Martin. But in the semifinals, he smoked the tires and lost to eventual winner Tim Grose who ran a 5.61 for the win. Kenny's 5.60 held for Low ET. At the Gatornationals, he qualified first with a track record 5.59 at 261.17. In the first round he beat Tom Hoover's 5.76-254 with a 5.64-255.24. In round two, a 5.66-256.99 beat John Force's 5.91-212 but he lost to a holeshot by Tom McEwen in the semifinals, when Tom's 5.67-256 beat Kenny's 5.65-255.82. He was runner-up to Paul Smith at the IHRA Pro-Am at Rockingham and once again he walked off with Low ET honors with a 5.58. At the NHRA Southern Nationals in April, he qualified first with a 5.67-260.86 (Low ET and Top Speed), but then suffered a rare first round loss. He got out qualified for the first time that year at the NHRA Cajun Nationals when Force ran 5.66 (Low ET) while Kenny had to settle for the second position with a 5.69-253.73. But for the second race in a row, he lost in the first round. This time his 5.88-237.52 lost to Johnny West's 5.83-252 in the "Hawaiian." At Bristol he got another runner-up finish at the IHRA Springnationals. He set Low ET at 5.57 but in the final he blew an engine letting Grose's 5.87-231 get the victory. Another runner-up finish followed at the NHRA Springnationals. A 5.65-254.02 qualified #2 behind Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" Firebird. And that's how they finished. The final saw Oswald's 5.76-255 take the win over the Tempo's 5.80-250.13. It was a strange situation, the "Budweiser King" was probably the most feared car to come up against in competition, yet here it was, the middle of June and the team hadn't won yet. Well, that all changed with the running of the Super Stock Nationals. While it wasn't a major event, it was still a satisfying win. Kenny qualified first in the eight car show with a 5.62-257.14 (Low ET and Top Speed). He beat Bruce Larson and Dominic Santucci with times of 5.75-254.95 and 5.72-256.41 before singling for the win with a 5.76-251.39 when West's Daytona broke. Now that the seal was broken, the wins started coming. On June 29 he won the NHRA Grandnationals. He qualified #2 with a 5.71-254.66 but went on to set Low ET at 5.66 and in the final be beat Force with a 5.69-257.28. The following week (July 6), he won the IHRA Northern Nationals at Milan. A 5.81-256.41 (Low ET and Top Speed) qualified first and he beat Smith and Grose with times of 5.95-253.52 and 5.84-252 to meet Oswald in the final. A 5.87-253.52 wrapped up the win. He took his fourth meet in a row at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. He qualified #2 behind Oswald with a 5.62-239.48. He beat Scott Kalitta in the first round and a 5.67-254 beat West in round two. In the semifinals, Hoover smoked the tires against him and his 5.66-257 got lane choice over Force in the final. Once again Bernstein prevailed, running 5.65-259.39 for another win. He managed to get into the finals at the next NHRA race, the Mile High Nationals at Denver. Kenny qualified first with a 5.84-227.96 and made his way into the final to meet Oswald. It took a Low ET of the meet run by Oswald to keep Bernstein out of the winners circle again. Mark's 5.81-252 nipped Kenny's close 5.82-247.52. He won the PHR Championships at US 131, Martin, Michigan. A 5.79-247.25 qualified first in the sixteen car field. In the first two rounds he ran 5.74 and 5.50 while beating Bob Gottschalk and Scott Kalitta. But in the semifinals, he set track records of 5.72-259.36 to beat Grose's 5.94. In the final, he ran Oswald again. But Kenny took the win easily with a 5.77-257.87 when Mark had problems and slowed to a 7.55-120. On August 17, Kenny set Low ET in qualifying first at the NHRA Northstar Nationals with a track record 5.67 at 251.39. Unfortunately, in the first round, he fouled away a 5.81 against Billy Meyer. The following week (August 24), he was back in the winner's circle at Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals. He qualified #2 (behind Oswald), but improved to a meet's best of 5.57-260. In the final, he met and beat Oswald.

Notes: Blown direct-drive 427 Ford on fuel. AKA Super Cyclone. Ran 'low nines.' (Need exact ET). Though generally run as an Exhibition car, closest class would've been S/FX (Supercharged Factory Experimental). Considered by most to be the first true fuel funny car, this car began with an FE wedge motor on nitro, and was created as the huge publicity rollout on the gas-burning Dodge Chargers team started. Former dragster standout Jack Chrisman agreed to drive, with the car built by Mercury subcontractor Bill Stroppe. Once complete, Jack would show up unannounced at the DC's publicized race demo dates, reportedly bankrolled directly by Mercury through Helen Sachs dealership in Downey, Ca. (and, no, Dodge was not happy about these appearances). The direct drive meant it smoked the tires most of its run just like a fuel dragster of this era did. Chrisman ran the car for two seasons, converting to red paint with fresh 1965 body panels, and replacing the wedge with SOHC power on fuel soon after the 1965 Winternationals. The motor was also set back at this time. In this format, the car was in the first-ever NHRA side-by-side blown nitro 'doorslammer' race when Jack raced Don Gay for B/Fuel Dragster honors at the 1965 Nationals. Sold to Dee Keaton, Jack 'the Bear' would bring the car back out briefly after the August 1966 fire in his Logghe roadster at New York National Speedway. Former Ford racer and collector Jim Barillaro found the remains of this car in the early 1980s and restored it. Therefore this, the first fuel funny car, is also indirectly responsible for inaugurating the restored funny car era, which in turn has birthed the modern nostalgia FC movement. And Jim Barillaro will still occasionally cackle this car on nitro.

Notes: Sunday Oct 12, 1975: The "Snake" makes history on a pit lane drag strip no less, at Ontario: 5.987 at 237.46 in the semis against Raymond Beadle at the Winston World Finals. Also went 241.53 for the sport's first 240 fuel FC. - Ricko. | Strange thing about the 241. It was not possible on the 3 decimal clocks of the day, which only displayed 241.28 and 241.93. It is likely that Prudhomme actually ran 241.93, but the clock was misread as 241.53. Inaugural member of the Cragar Five Second Funny Car Club. Won 6 of 8 NHRA National events in '75 - biggest loss was Indy to Beadle and the Blue Max. | Started the '75 season with the 'Cuda but the Monza debuted at Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals. Things didn't start so well for the Monza. First off, the tow rig broke down outside of Phoenix and had to be towed in. Then once it arrived, Don went to make the car's first pass ever and the rear end broke. After getting it fixed,he ran a 6.40 to qualify #3. He lasted until round two where the Monza got crossed up and lost to Billy Meyer driving Gene Snow's Vega. With the bad luck behind him, Don towed into Pomona for the Winternationals where he ran a 6.25-228.42 to qualify #2. In the first round, he beat Meyer's tire smoking 8.15 with a 6.39-189.87. In round two, a 6.37 beat Neil Leffler in Jim Terry's potent Mustang. In the semifinals, a 6.28-212.76 beat Charlie Therwhanger in Mickey Thompson's Grand Am. He picked up his first win of the year with the Monza with a 6.24-226.70 in the final over Mike Miller who broke in Jim Green's "Green Elephant" Vega. On March 2, Prudhomme shocked everyone when he laid down a 6.08-235.60 to qualify first at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet. The times were good for Low ET and Top Speed as well as new track records. But after qualifying, his times weren't so good. He singled in the first round with an easy pass when Gary Burgin's Mustang II broke. In round two, a 6.51-212 beat Leroy Chadderton's quicker 6.48-222. A tire smoking 7.91 in the semifinals beat John Lombardo. And in the final, he ran a 7.17-141.28 to take the runner-up spot to Dale Pulde's 6.53-196 in the "Eastern Raider" Mustang II. At Gainesville for the Gatornationals, Don got the pole with a 6.39 (Low ET) at 205.47. Tommy Grove's Mustang lost to Prudhomme's 6.61 in the first round and Tom Raley's Vega lost to the Monza's 6.53-198.23 in round two. A semifinal 6.87-167 advanced to the finals when Shirl Greer got out of shape. In the final, Don got his second NHRA national event win of the year with a 6.52-172.74 getting the win over Tom Prock whose "Custom Body" Dart broke a rear end. Portland held the Seattle Opener and Prudhomme made it into the final before losing to Ed McCulloch. At the NHRA Division Six Opener on May 31 at Seattle, Don qualified first, set Low ET, and won the race over McCulloch who broke in the final. Don went 3 for 3 at NHRA's third national event of the year, the Springnationals at National Trail. He ran Low ET and Top Speed in qualifying first and then ran 6.31-200.44 over Jim Liberman's 6.59, a 6.40-219.51 over Jim Nicoll's 6.56, and a 6.84 over Greer in the semifinals when they both smoked the tires. In the final he ran Raymond Beadle behind the wheel of the "Blue Max." It was an interesting final when the "Max" had its Mustang II body come unhinged and blow off shortly after leaving the line. Don went on to score a 6.46 victory. Beadle got back at Prudhomme at the third Division Three race at Cincinnati when he beat Don in the final with a 6.43-219 over the Monza's 7.19-147.29. He was runner-up at the NHRA Division One race at Maple Grove on June 21 as well. He qualified first with a 6.53 and made his way into the final to run Harlan Thompson in the "Fireball Vega. Harlan ran a Low ET and Top Speed 6.36-222 to beat Prudhomme for the victory. He lost his first NHRA national event of the year at the Summernationals on July 13. He set Low ET in qualifying first with a 6.22-205.01. But in the first round he got crossed up and shut off to a 9.55-89.46 against Tom McEwen. Don wasn't down long as he picked up his fourth NHRA National event win of the season at the Grandnationals in Canada on August 16. Once again he qualified first with a 6.46-207.37. He beat Burgin in the first round with a 6.47-212.26 and in the semifinal, a 6.59-222.22 beat Bob Pickett. In the final he ran Prock again. Don set Low ET in the final with a 6.45-224.43 getting the win. He won the fourth Division One race at Maryland International, as a final round 6.79-225.00 (Top Speed) beat Larry Fullerton's "Trojan Horse" Mustang II. Another win was added to his long list when he won the PHR Championships at US131 Martin, Michigan. He qualified first with a 6.28-233.76 then ran 6.12-213.27 to beat Greer's Mustang II in the first round. A semifinal 6.28-220.04 beat Denny Savage in the "Chi-Town Hustler." In the final he ran a 6.12-222.77 to beat Vic Cecelia's 6.35-225 in Charlie Proite's "Telstar." Prudhomme and Beadle staged their own little war at the NHRA US Nationals at Indianapolis. They qualified first and second with Don's 6.17-232.55 (Top Speed) getting the #2 spot. In the first round, Don beat Ron O'Donnell in the "Damn Yankee" with a 6.16. In the second round, a 6.21 beat Pulde's 6.94 in the "Arizona Wildcat" and in the semifinals, a 6.45 beat Pickett's tire smoking 7.89 in Mickey Thompson's car. In the final, Prudhomme got beat. Raymond shot to a 6.16-226 for the win over the "Snake's" 6.26-224.44. After that, Don went to Portland International for the NHRA Division Six final.

Notes: Set national record at 5.90 at 1981 Mile High nationals (altitude factored?) Ran first five with a 5.99 at Gainesville 3/15/81 to become the 7th member of the Cragar Five Second FC Club. Need to confirm that this was a Mike Kase car. | Kenny started the season in a good way, by winning the AHRA Winternationals at Tucson on Jan 18. He qualified #2 with a 6.69-196 and in the first round he picked up to a 6.56-211 to beat Tom Hoover's 6.85-209. In the semifinals, he ran 6.56 again at 213 to beat a tire smoking Don Prudhomme. In the final, he unleashed low ET (traction was poor) 6.54-214 to take the win over low qualifier Gordie Bonin's 6.68-202. At Pomona on Feb 1 for the NHRA Winternationals, Kenny barely made the field, qualifying #15. He lost to Denny Savage in the first round. That should have been it for his Pomona story but in the semifinals, his Texas neighbors, the "Blue Max" team had blown off its roof on a 245 mph run that beat Prudhomme. They had no spare body so Bernstein offered up his spare. The "Max" team cut the roof off of his car and grafted it onto theirs. All that effort and they lost to Billy Meyer in the final. On March 8, Kenny was at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet. A 6.42-226.13 qualified #8 in the sixteen car field. Unfortunately, the race was postponed one week due to rain and he was unable to return the following week. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #5 with a 6.01-245.90. He beat Ron Colson's 6.06-233 in the "Hawaiian" in the first round with a 5.99-238.72. He advanced past Prudhomme in round two when the "Snake" got crossed up. In the semifinal, he lost to Bonin. A week later (March 22), he was in the winner's circle at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. He set Low ET at 6.18 and beat Shirl Greer and Dale Pulde to reach the final. In the final, he ran the team he helped at Pomona, the Raymond Beadle driven "Blue Max." Kenny took the victory with a 6.45-212. On April 5, he was at Green Valley Raceway for the NHRA Western Regional Opener. It was an eight car show and Kenny's 6.27-233.76 qualified #2. He set low ET in the first round with a 6.15-240.00 that beat Brian Conway. In the semifinals, a 6.45-209.79 lost to Beadle's 6.25-228. The NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta also had an eight car field. It was a tough show to make with a 6.16 "bump." A 6.09-241.28 qualified Bernstein #3. He made his way to the finals by beating Meyer in the first round with a 6.08-242.58, and in the semifinals, Prudhomme broke against him. In the final, he faced Tripp Shumake in Johnny Loper's Arrow. It was a close race but Tripp's 6.07-233 beat Kenny's 6.08-243.90 (top speed). May 3 found the "Budweiser King" team at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro Am Championships. He qualified #2 with a 6.03 and won his first round race over Paul Smith with a 6.14-231.36. In the semifinal, his 6.28-226.70 lost to Meyer's 6.26-213.77. OCIR hosted the NHRA Western Regional on May 9. Things didn't go well there. It was an eight car show with a soft "bump" of only 6.47. The "Budweiser King" failed to qualify. After that it was off to Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. A 6.17-245.90 (top speed) qualified #5 in the eight car field. He faced low qualifier, Beadle in the first round and smoked the tires and lost. He ended the month of May with a runner up finish to Meyer at the IHRA World Nationals. He did come away with low ET at 5.97. At the NHRA Springnationals, Kenny qualified #5 with a 6.12-239.36. This set up an interesting first round race with his eventual crew chief, Dale Armstrong. Bernstein won that first round race with a 6.18-238 but he didn't get much further when his round two 6.21-233.16 lost to Beadle's 6.15-235.

Notes: Pat Foster is a famous chassis builder of many funny cars from the 1960s into the 1980s. Foster also drove many funny cars, including the Mickey Thompson Mach I in 1969. The car was the sister car to the one Danny Ongais drove. Foster built both cars, revolutionizing funny car racing in 1969 with his chassis design. The cars were lighter than their competition, which gave them a distinct advantage over the other funny cars during the first half of the season. The competition started to transition to pure funny car chassis to keep up with Foster's machines. While Ongais went on a winning spree, Foster had a series of gremlins that kept him from winning. The car showed potential with a 6.99 clocking along with a reported 215.31 mph blast at Kansas City. But fate stepped in when Pat Foster was involved in a two-car accident with Gerry Schwartz at Dallas International during the NHRA Springnationals. Schwartz did not survive the crash. Foster continued to build funny cars and became a national-event-winning driver. (Photo provided by Drag Racing Memories. Info provided by James Ibusuki) . | Foster built the two Mustangs identical except that the red car had a longer wheelbase. Steve Montrelli remembers that the teams went through 55 Cammer motors that season. Pat started the season by qualifying #7 at the NHRA Winternationals with an 8.24-181.45. He lost to Ron Leslie in the first round. At OCIR's second All-Pro race on Feb 9, a 7.88 was only good enough for first alternate. Funny, Ongais failed to qualify at Pomona and Ongais qualified at OCIR. By Feb 16, both were in the field at the third annual Stardust Open at Las Vegas. Pat ran a first round 7.90-192.30 over Randy Walls and Charlie Allen broke against him in the semifinal so it became an all Mickey Thompson Mustang final when he faced Ongais in the final. Pat got crossed up and slowed to a 9.85-161.57 for the runner-up spot. He had some gremlins at Lions on Feb 22 for an eight car show when he lost fire against Ray Alley in the first round. On March 2 at the Bakersfield March Meet, he failed to qualify. A 7.64 qualified second to his teammate at the HRM Championships on March 16. Pat ran a 7.57-192.30 in the first round over Johnny Wright, and a second round 7.66-191.48 beat Dave Beebe's 7.78-196 in the Super Chief. In the semifinal a 7.64-191.89 beat Mike Van Sant's 7.96-187 in the Invader. But unfortunately, a broken drive shaft stopped him in the finals, giving Charlie Allen (7.59-194) the win.

Notes: Consistently fast machine with a stock stroke motor. Won 1977 IHRA Dixie Nationals and World Nationals. Set 245.23 NHRA Record at Martin MI on 8/77. Stood through 1979 at least. Ran 6.24 at Pomona, 6.29 at Columbus, 6.36 at Englishtown, and at 6.16 Indy. If I had to choose which season in which Pulde was most successful, it would be a toss up between '77 and '85. For sentimental reasons it would go to this "War Eagle" car. Pulde started the '77 season at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals where he lasted until round two before losing to Gary Burgin. He went to the Bakersfield March Meet where he finished runner-up to Eddie Pauling in Johnny Loper's Monza. Another runner-up finish came at Rockingham on May 1 for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. Dale had set Low ET and Top Speed at 6.14-234.37 before losing to Ken Safford in the "Mr. Norm" car in the final. He won the NHRA Division Three points race at Indianapolis as well as the IHRA Dixie Nationals, beating Tom McEwen in the final. Another win came his way at Edgewater for the NHRA Division Three race held there. He beat Chuck Finders in the final with a 6.22-236.22 (Top Speed).

Notes: McEwen debuted this Duster at Beeline on Jan 25 for the AHRA Winternationals. In the first round, both he and Gordon Mineo ran 8.40's with the "Goose" getting the win. In the second round, his 7.89 lost to eventual winner Tommy Grove. On Feb 14, he was at an eight car show at Lions. He beat Bob Pickett's quicker 7.35 in the first round with a 7.41 but in the semifinals, he got out of shape and shut off against Don Prudhomme. The following week (Feb 22),he was at OCIR for the third All-Pro event. He broke a transmission and was unable to run. He was back at Lions on March 8 for the second AHRA Grand American race. He failed to reach the finals. The Duster was in its first final on March 28 at the last OCIR All Pro race. He beat Roger Wolford in Jack Chrisman's Mustang in the first round with a 7.80-190.27. In round two, a 7.65-194.38 beat Warren Gunter's 8.87. He had a close one in the semifinals when his 7.48-196.07 beat Mike Snively's 7.51-191 in Jim Annin's Challenger. In the final he lost to Dave Beebe. At Rockingham for the AHRA Pro-Am Championships, Tom fouled in the first round against Ron Umbach. He lost in the first round at the next AHRA race as well, the Grand American at Frontier Raceway. There he ran 7.92-189.07 in the first round that lost to Mart Higginbotham's 7.70-187. McEwen was at Bristol on June 7 for the AHRA Springnationals. A first round 8.01 beat Shirl Greer but in round two, his 7.79-171.79 lost to Dick Harrell's 7.64-176. A week later (June 14), he was at Dallas for the NHRA Springnationals where he qualified #8. He had problems in the first round and shut off on the line giving future superstar Kenny Bernstein a solo in Ray Alley's Cougar. Tom participated in a T/F vs. F/C race at LaPlace on June 21. Just before this race, Tom had installed a two-speed transmission in the Duster. The F/Cs were given a half second handicap. LaPlace was having trouble with its timing equipment so the mph clocks were out for this race. Tom lost his first race when his 7.57 fell to Preston Davis' 7.07. In his second race, he had Low ET for the funnies with a 7.41 that beat Richard Tharp's 7.12. In his third race, he fouled away a 7.61 while Ronnie Martin got the win with a 7.03. McEwen was at Capitol for the King of Kings F/C Invitational on July 11. In the first round he was running Clare Sanders in the "Super Camaro" but at half-track, the Duster broke. During the season, McEwen kept up a busy match race program, mostly against Don Prudhomme for his "Hot Wheels" sponsor. On July 26, the two met at Union Grove where Prudhomme won three straight with a best of 6.94-214 compared to Tom's best of 7.25-206.80. At the Rockford Manufacturer's Meet, McEwen beat Randy Walls in the first round with a 7.56-197.36. In round two he had a close race with Grove's SOHC powered Mustang. Tom won with a 7.51 over Tommy's 7.52. In round three, he soloed with a 7.47-202.24 when Sid Foster's "Super Ford" broke. His ETs didn't qualify for the final. Tom had some bad luck at Epping on Aug 2 for the AHRA Grand American held there. He won his first round race over Al Hanna but his motor blew and he had a flash fire that put the car out of competition for the rest of the day. He raced Prudhomme in a best of three at Capitol on Aug 8 but lost two straight. New York National hosted the AHRA Nationals at the end of August and Tom made it into the second round before losing to Prudhomme's 7.11-209 with a 7.40-180.36. At Indy for the U.S.Nationals, McEwen made the show but lost to Bruce Larson's 7.17 in the first round with a 7.21. On Sept 27, he was runner-up to Leroy Goldstein at U.S. 30's F/C Spectacular. OCIR held it's East vs. West F/C Championships on Oct 10. McEwen was on the East's team. In his first of three races, he lost to Jim Liberman's 7.22-202 with a 7.56-198.07. In his second race, his 7.44-196.07 lost to Jake Johnston's 6.94-208 in the "Blue Max." He won his last race on a solo when Ken Safford blew a motor on his burnout in the "Mr Norm" car. Tom ran a 7.09-206.89 single. His times were not good enough to get into the final. Fremont held its own version of the East/West Meet on Oct 24. Once again Tom's ETs failed to get him into the finals. As the year was coming to a close, Carlsbad held its Match Race of Champions event. Four cars competed and made three runs against one another. Tom lost to Prudhomme in his first race and in his second race he lost a blower and the race to Goldstein in the "Ramchargers" Challenger. He came back to win his third race with a 7.31-200.88 over Pat Minick's 7.43-192 in the "Chi-Town Hustler." At the AHRA World Finals at Beeline on Nov 15, McEwen kept his bad luck streak alive in AHRA races. In the first round, his engine let go and he slowed to a 7.69-184.08 loss to Ed McCulloch's 7.23-207. The Duster was getting a little long in the tooth by the time the NHRA Supernationals came around. Tom failed to qualify for the field that had a 7.27 bump spot. I don't believe this car ever ran a "six" or hit 210. | (Need to verify the times we have recorded. - BP)

Notes: Meyer qualified #2 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 6.04. He beat John Collins, Denny Savage, and a fouling John Force in the semifinals with a 6.35. He faced Raymond Beadle in the final and Billy was not the favorite. Beadle had beaten Don Prudhomme in the semifinals with a track record 5.93 at 245.23. But in that race, the body's roof first collapsed and then blew off. The "Blue Max" crew didn't have a spare body with them so Texas neighbor Kenny Bernstein offered them the use of his spare body. So before the final, they grafted the roof off of Bernstein's car onto theirs. It looked OK, but in the final, Meyer took the victory with a 6.52-205.94 over Beadle's 6.66-236. The win probably cost Meyer more money than he made as he used up four engines in the course of the event. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #9 with a 6.05-237.46. That set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Prudhomme. Billy lost to Don's 5.97-245. Two weeks later (March 28), he was at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. He smoked the tires and shut off to a 8.89-100 loss to Beadle's 6.29-234 in the first round.

Notes: Rear-engine blown fuel. This replaced the Cuda he crashed earlier in the year. Car was sold to Fred Goeske in 1966. Photo is actually early 1966, but reflects the late 1965 2nd car. Don Montgomery's "Dragster and Funny Car Memories" book quotes unattributed times of 8.88-178.92. Per Chris Martin, Tom ran 8.82-171 at Lions on the night that Dyer ran the great 8.63.
