Notes: Dominated 1980 with 6 wins and 3 runner ups. Lost the very close championship due to a broken transmission at the World Finals. Ran 8.35-163.45 at Amarillo WCS. Was that altitude factored? Confirmed 160.42 at Englishtown 80. Need to confirm best sea level times. | Lee started the '80 season by competing at the AHRA Winternationals. He qualified first in the eight car show and went on to win, beating Don Nicholson in the final. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, Lee qualified #4 with an 8.52-156.24. He beat Jim Meyer in round one and in round two his 8.59-155.97 took out Lee Hunter's Zephyr. In the semifinals, his 8.61 advanced when Bob Glidden's Arrow broke at mid-track. His final round opponent was to be Kevin Rotty but Rotty's Camaro broke so Shepherd soloed to his second NHRA National event P/S win with a 14.38. Baton Rouge hosted the NHRA Division Four Opener on March 9. Once again the two Camaros of Rotty and Shepherd met in the final. This time Kevin's didn't break. Lee got the win with an 8.60-155.97 over Rotty's 8.63-154. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #2 with an 8.49-157.34. He beat Gordie Rivera in round one and in round two he beat Frank Iaconio. An 8.50 in the semifinals shut down Joe Satmary's 8.75. In the final, he faced Glidden and his Arrow. Both ran 8.51 (Lee at 156.52) with Shepherd getting the victory. The second Division Four race was at Green Valley on March 30 and Shepherd set an 8.37 NHRA record in qualifying first. His speed on the run was 161.57 (top speed). Once again the final came down to the two Camaros of Rotty and Shepherd, and once again the results were the same with Lee's 8.42-156.52 beating Kevin's 8.58-157. The Reher-Morrison team continued to dominate Division Four when they showed up at Houston for the third race. Lee ran 8.61 (low ET) at 154.37 to qualify first and then went on to win with an 8.74-155.97 that beat Sonny Ray's 8.85-152. Things didn't seem to be going so good for the team when they showed up at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. It was an eight car show and when qualifying ended, Lee's best of 8.54-158.17 got the #5 spot. That put him up against low qualifier Glidden who had just switched to a Fairmont and set a track record of 8.41. Lee was off by a tenth and a half but he cut a good light in their first round race, and his 8.54-158.73 beat Bob's quicker 8.49-160. In the semifinals, his 8.56-158.17 beat Rotty's 8.57-159. That set up a final round against Frank Iaconio. Frank had lane choice due to an 8.47 in his semifinal race. Once again, Shepherd proved he could drive as his 8.60-159.01 got the win over Iaconio's 8.55-145. This was his third straight NHRA National event victory.

Notes: Ran 8.41-160.71 NRs at 80 Cajun Nationals, 8.33 NR (altitude factored) at 80 Mile High Nationals, then finally, 8.32 NR at 80 Fall Nationals. Ran 160.14 at Fall Nationals. Photo from Indy 1980. | Lee Shepherd and Bob Glidden raged a war in P/S unlike any seen before in the class. Glidden started the season in his Arrow in which he had won the NHRA P/S championship the year before. It wasn't cutting it as Lee won the first two NHRA events of the season with Glidden's best showing being a runner-up at the Gatornationals. He had Don Hardy build him a new Fairmont that debuted at the NHRA Cajun Nationals. He qualified first with Low ET of the meet 8.41 at 160.71 while Shepherd qualified #5 in the eight-car show with an 8.54 meaning that the two would meet in the first round. In that first round match-up, Lee ran another 8.54 that beat Glidden's quicker 8.49. Lee went on to win his third straight national event. Bob had to get his act together quick if he was to win another championship. He won the Division three opener at Indianapolis setting Low ET and Top Speed at 8.43-162.16 (new NHRA speed record) and then on May 4 he won the second Division three race at Edgewater setting Low ET and Top Speed while qualifying first and beating Andy Mannarino in the final with an 8.50-153.32. He made a move on Shepherd at the NHRA Springnationals. An 8.52-158.45 qualified first while Lee's 8.57 was second in the now rat powered Camaro. Bob set Low ET in the first round with an 8.49-157.61 single when Roy Hill broke on the line and after that, they both made their way to the final. In the final, Bob got his first national event win of the year with an 8.53-155.70 stopping Shepherd's 8.62-155. Another win followed on June 28 at the NHRA Mile High Nationals. Bob qualified first with a Low ET of the meet 8.99 (Bandimere's first eight), while the Reher-Morrison Camaro was second with a 9.02. Together they mowed down the competition to meet again in the final where Bob ran another 8.99-149.50 to win over Shepherd's close 9.01-147. The Summernationals was the next national event on the schedule, and in qualifying, Glidden looked good running an 8.41-159.29 for the #1 spot. Lee was second with an 8.48-159. Once again, they ran through the field to meet in the final. Bob ran a best of 8.48 in eliminations while Lee's best was an 8.50. In the final, Shepherd ran an 8.54-158 that beat Bob's 8.53-159.29. Glidden won the NHRA Division three races at Union Grove and Beech Bend, setting Low ET at both races as well. He qualified first at the PHR Championships with an 8.59 while his nemesis ran an 8.67 for third. Both got past the first round with Glidden setting Low ET at 8.52 while beating Paul Gentilozzi. In the semifinals, Gidden and Shepherd met with the Camaro breaking at half track and Bob winning with an 8.53-158.17. Bob went on to win the event with a final round 8.58 beating Jim Kinnett. The NHRA tour traveled up to Canada for the Grandnationals where an 8.47-159.29 by Glidden was only good enough for #2 in qualifying as Shepherd got the pole. Once again the two raced through the field to meet again in the final for the fifth time this year. Unfortunately, Bob blew a trans and could only watch as Lee ran an 8.44-159 for his fifth win of the year. Bob was kicking himself after Indy for the U.S. Nationals. He had qualified first with Low ET and Top Speed at 8.43-161.29. Both he and second qualifier (8.45) worked their way to the final where Bob fouled away an 8.48-154 while Lee got his sixth win with an 8.50-159. Glidden had to do something fast and he did at the next event, the NHRA Fallnationals at Seattle. He qualified #1 with an 8.35-159.85 while Shepherd was unusually farther back with an 8.52-157 qualifying #4. Glidden set an 8.32 national record in the semifinal while Lee stayed in the game with an 8.44-158 beating Frank Iaconio and putting the two in yet another final round. This time, Glidden took his fourth NHRA national event win of the year with an 8.41-159.85 beating Lee's 8.51-158. This tightened up the points chase considerably but Bob was still a long shot going into the season finale. | Formerly listed best speed as 160.71 NR at Cajun Nationals 80.

Notes: Eldon Doman built this car new. Don Hardy did most of the chassis. Cleveland power by Doman. 4-speed Lenco. Family still owns the car. It is as it last ran in 1980, unrestored. Still fires right up and sounds as awesome as ever. It qualified every race it entered. - Stephen Doman

Notes: Runner up at the 1980 Winternationals, setting a new record. Photo from 1980 U.S. Nationals. Kevin finished 4th in NHRA points in 1980, his best finish. Unfortunately, Kevin did not race in 1981 and did not get to show the big number 4 on his car. | Kevin had his best year in PS in '80. He started the year at the AHRA Winternationals where he qualified #3 and lasted until the semifinals where he lost to eventual winner Lee Shepherd. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified first with low ET and top speed 8.49-161.57 (new NHRA speed record). Kevin beat a fouling Bill Jenkins in the first round with a 8.62-157.34 and in the second round, Randy Humphrey also fouled against him. Rotty must have had everyone scared because in the semifinals, Frank Iaconio was the third straight driver to foul against him. He met up with Lee Shepherd in the final, and unfortunately for Kevin, his Camaro broke, giving Shepherd a solo for the victory. He was going to race at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet but it was rain delayed and he was unable to make the rain date. He continued to impress by qualifying #5 at the NHRA Gatornationals. He beat Don Nicholson in the first round before losing to Bob Glidden in round two. At the NHRA Division Four Opener at Baton Rouge, Kevin made it all the way to the final before losing to Shepherd's 8.60-155 with an 8.63-154.73. He won the Divisional race at Beeline, stopping a fouling Gordie Rivera in the final with an 8.87. Another runner-up finish to Shepherd came at the second NHRA Division Four race at Green Valley. An 8.58-157.61 was no match for Lee's 8.42-156 on this day. In April, he was at Fremont for the NHRA Division Six race. Rotty qualified #5 in the eight car field with an 8.58-157. He lost to low qualifier Brad Yuill in the first round. He was back at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals on April 27. A 8.49-161.00 qualified third in the eight car show. A first round 8.54-158.17 beat Sonny Ray but in the semifinals he came up against Shepherd and his 8.57-159.57 lost to Lee's 8.54-158. It didn't seem to matter which Division he raced in, he was tough. In May Kevin was at OCIR for the third NHRA Division Six race. It was another eight car field and his 8.50-158.17 qualified first. He went on to win by beating Larry Johnson in the first round with an 8.55-157.06 and an 8.53-157.61 beat Ken Dondero in Dick Landy's Omni in the semifinals. Rotty took all the awards in the final when he beat Brad Yuill with low ET and top speed at 8.48-158.73. He slipped a bit in qualifying for the NHRA Springnationals when his 8.73-155.44 got the #8 spot in the field. He got around Don Coonce and Jim Kinnett in the first two rounds before losing to Shepherd's 8.58 in the semifinals with an 8.70.

Notes: Also 8.47, 159 at 1980 Cajuns. If it wasn't for Bob Glidden and Lee Shepherd's dominant performance, Frank would've easily been the 1980 P/S World Champion. He still ran really well but was just a tick behind the performances of those two. He started the NHRA tour by qualifying third with an 8.51-161.57 at the Winternationals and lasted until the semifinals where he fouled against Kevin Rotty. He ran well at the Gatornationals but failed to make it to the semis there. The next NHRA national event was the Cajun Nationals on April 27. It was only an eight car show and Iaconio qualified #2. He set Top Speed at 161.21 on his way to the final where he met Shepherd. A quicker run of 8.55-145.86 lost to Lee's 8.60-159. He won the Division One Opener at Englishtown on May 4 running a final round 8.53-153.45 over runner-up Bill Jenkins' 8.73-157. Frank qualified #3 with an 8.63-156.79 at the NHRA Springnationals and once again got as far as the semifinal where his 8.60-156.52 lost to Glidden's 8.53-154. I'm not sure if he failed to qualify or just skipped running the Mile High Nationals, but he wasn't in the field. At Englishtown for the Summernationals, he qualified #3 again, behind those "other two guys" with an 8.52-157.61. He beat Johnny Downey with an 8.56-157.69 and in the second round, another 8.56-157.89 beat Andy Mannarino. In the semi's, Glidden ran an 8.50-158 to trailer the Camaro's 8.60-157.06. Frank won the Division One race at Maple Grove setting Low ET at 8.57 and beating Jenkins again in the final with an 8.58-156.52 dropping the "Grump's" 8.77-153. Jenkins returned the favor at the Division One race at Maryland where Bill beat Frank in the final. The NHRA tour traveled up to Canada for the Grandnationals where an 8.59-157.06 qualified #3 in the eight-car show. He beat Alban Gauthier in the first round with an 8.63-156.52 but a semifinal run of 8.60-157.61 failed to win against Shepherd's 8.41-158. At the Division One final at New England on August 17, he set Low ET and Top Speed at 8.53-157.61 before winning the final with an 8.58-157.61 over Bob Ingles. He took his customary third spot in qualifying with an 8.52-160.71 at the U.S. Nationals. Again he ran well until he met up with Glidden in the semifinal and a good 8.53-160.42 lost to Bob's 8.46-160. At Seattle for the Fallnationals, Lee didn't run as well as he normally did and as a result, Frank's 8.45-159.01 qualified #2 behind Glidden's 8.35. Frank worked his way through the field until he met up with Shepherd in the semifinal and fouled out giving Lee a free ride into the final. At the World Finals, he was back in #3 in qualifying with an 8.56-159.01, but this time, he made it into the final against Glidden. A final round 8.56-159.29 lost to a championship hungry Glidden who won with an 8.42-159.85.

Notes: 339 W-2 Wedge Small block, not a hemi. Set national ET record at 8.48 at Gainesville, then reset it at Fremont at 8.43. Tested 342 Ted Spehar engine. | Bob parked his championship winning Fairmont and went to Chrysler for '79. Racers thinking that it would take him some time to adjust to the new combination were not too happy after qualifying ended at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. There at the top of the ladder was Glidden's 8.56-159.57 (top speed). An 8.59 at only 147.05 beat Brad Yuill's 8.83-154 in the first round. In round two, he picked up to an 8.50 at only 144.69 to beat Larry Lombardo's 8.70-156 in Bill Jenkins' Camaro. His speed continued to drop as in the semifinal, Bob ran 8.58 at 140.84 to drop Don Nicholson's 8.83-156. That put him in the final against Joe Satmary. Bob lost a freeze plug and had to drive though his own water, and still set an 8.49 track record at a paltry 150.75 to beat Joe's 8.71. At the NHRA Gatornationals, it was more of the same for the other P/S drivers. Bob qualified first at 8.52-159.57 (top speed). A first round 8.58 beat Nicholson while in round two his 8.55-149 advanced when Satmary fouled. In the semifinals, he set low ET with an 8.48-150 over Mark Yuill. In the final, it was good to see long time P/S campaigner Ronnie Sox up for the challenge. Sox was also running a 340 based Mopar car and this was the first all Mopar NHRA final in six years. But it was apparent that his hasn't as stout as Glidden's as in the final, Bob grabbed the victory with an 8.53-147.29 as Sox fouled with an 8.75-156 attempt. Things didn't change at all by the time the teams pulled into Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. Once again Glidden headed the P/S qualifiers with an 8.54-158.45 (low ET and top speed). It was an eight car show and Bob breezed past the first round with an 8.59 when Jim Kinnett fouled. In the semifinals, his 8.61-151 beat Randy Humphrey's 8.66. In the final, he ran Lee Shepherd. The two left together but soon Bob took control and his 8.59-149 beat Lee's 8.71-155. At the NHRA Springnationals, there was some hope for the other P/S racers when Bob didn't quite win all the accolades. Sure he set low ET, was first in qualifying, and won the race, but someone else got top speed (Larry Lombardo at 159.85). His 8.57 (low ET) was tops in qualifying and he ran 8.69, 8.66, and 8.66 over Satmary, Shepherd, and Frank Iaconio to reach the final against Lombardo. A final round 8.61-157.61 copped the victory over Larry's 8.76-151. Bob was now undefeated for a full year in NHRA National event competition. He finally lost at the next NHRA event, the Mile High Nationals. He had set low ET and top speed in qualifying first with a 9.08-148.27. A 9.12-141.73 beat Nicholson in the first round but in the semifinals, he fouled against Randy Humphrey. He made it one round further at the NHRA Summernationals at Englishtown. There, he qualified first with a 8.52 then set low ET and top speed at 8.51-160.14 on his way to a final round meeting with Iaconio. In the final, Bob's Arrow broke and Frank got the victory with an 8.60-156. He got back to his winning ways at the NHRA Grandnationals in Canada. Glidden qualified first in the eight car field with a 8.49-158.17 (top speed). He beat Mark Yuill in round one and in the semifinals, he set low ET at 8.46 over Nicholson who fouled. In the final he met Iaconio again and this time the little Arrow didn't break. Bob ran 8.47 to take the win over Frank's 8.53. Byron held an interesting best of three match race in August between Nicholson's Mustang and Glidden's Arrow. They were said to be legal weight but the times were pretty quick. Dyno beat Bob three straight with a best of 8.34 while Glidden's three runs were 8.46, an 8.36 with a red light, and an 8.37. At Indy for the NHRA U.S. Nationals, Bob was running some special carburetors from Holley. Once again he qualified first with an 8.58. Another 8.58 at 157.34 beat Kinnett in round one. He set low ET in round two with an 8.56-157.61 that took out Andy Mannarino. In the semifinals, another 8.58-156.79 beat Kevin Rotty's 8.71-157. In the final, he faced off against Lombardo in Bill Jenkins Camaro. Bob grabbed the victory with an 8.61-143.50 over Larry's 8.72-154.

Notes: Terry ran really well at the NHRA Winternationals, running an 8.56-157.61 to qualify #8. Unfortunately, he lost to Bob Ingles in the first round. He when to Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet where they held a six car PS show. Terry qualified #4 with an 8.68-158.45 and in the first round beat low qualifier, Larry Johnson with an 8.70-155.97. He got the odd-lot single in the semi finals. In the final he ran Mark Yuill but he crossed the centerline and gave Mark the win. He was at OCIR for the NHRA Western Regional. An 8.70-157.97 qualified #3. He singled in the first round with an 8.65-159.01 when Jim Basko was unable to show. But Terry fouled away an 8.88-159.85 in the semi finals against Mark Yuill's 8.60-158.
