Notes: Recorded on a desert strip, not at actual drag strip. Went 450 on the 3.22, but was too fast for the timers to pick it up. Went 412 over 500 meters (1500 feet). Officially went 392.54 to set the quarter mile acceleration record (took it from Dave Anderson, who had gone 368). Info from Ky Michaelson and newspaper reports. 29 year old O'Neil was deaf since birth and one of the top stunt persons in the world. A month after this run, she set the all time record for falling from a height at 112 feet. Kitty also ran 618 in Bill Frederick's Land Speed Record car (with an existing world record of 622) in preparation for setting the LSR. Two major Chicago sponsors did not want a 'lady' doing that and pulled support in lieu of a male driver. Legal action was said to ensue, but we have no details. | ran 307.04 on a drag strip at Bonneville in September 1977.

Notes: Died in a crash at Charlotte Motor Speedway in March 1974, also killing two crew member from another team. Ran 5.577, 283.01 and 5.69, 219.51 at Pomona Winters 73. The 368 was all time rocket dragster quarter mile record until Kitty O'Neil reset it in 1977. | I modified the rocket chamber out of the X-1 Rislone rocket car designed by J.C. McCormick. I made an all-new fuel and pressure system, larger tank, increased the fuel flow, etc. We increased the thrust from 2500 lbs. to 3000 lbs. I installed the propulsion system in my Top Gas Dragster. The car was sponsored by the Tony Fox team. - Ky Michaelson | In 1973, he was the first to break the five second mark on a 1/4-mile track, at 4.99 seconds, and a top speed at the finish line of 322 MPH. | At the 1973 U.S. Nationals he recorded a career best time of 4.62 seconds at 344 MPH, the latter remaining the highest speed ever clocked at an NHRA national event. | 368 from Kitty O'Neil newspaper report when she went 394.

Notes: The 3.58, 386 was the all time quickest run ever recorded on a drag strip. Photo taken at Santa Pod on 7th August 1984, from the grandstand, looking down on to the 'Fire-up' road. I took the shot -- I think -- just before Sammy's record-breaking run. - Benito

Notes: In August, 1967 at U.S.30 Dragstrip in Gary, Indiana, Chuck Suba drove the X-1 to a 5.41 second elapsed time (although Pete Farnsworth felt the best elapsed time record on reliable clocks was 5.9 seconds at Oklahoma City). The 5.41 second elapsed time remained drag racing's all-time low e.t. until November 11, 1971.

Notes: In August, 1967 at U.S. 30 drag strip in Crown Point, Illinois, Chuck Suba drove the X-1 to a 5.41 second elapsed time (although Pete Farnsworth felt the best elapsed time record on reliable clocks was 5.9 seconds at Oklahoma City). The 5.41 second elapsed time remained drag racing's all-time low e. t. until November 11, 1971, when the second hydrogen peroxide rocket dragster, Bill Frederick's Courage of Australia driven by Vic Wilson, recorded a 5.107 second 311 mph pass during private testing at Orange County International Raceway, California. In doing so, it became the first car of any kind to run 300 mph in a quarter mile. The Courage of Australia was essentially a scaled-down Blue Flame clone. Nitrogen was contained in a spherical bottle mounted in the nose forward of the single front wheel with the hydrogen peroxide in a horizontal tank forward of the cockpit.

Notes: 2nd World Record set at Bristol, Tennessee, Oct 11, 1981, 344 MPH, 4.22 ET, good for IHRA national records that will never be reset (still in effect as of 2012). Larry says that the car's rear tire came off the track midway. chutes deployed at half track. Had this incident not occurred, this run could have been under 3 seconds at over 500 MPH. Ran Vega for first part of 1981, but started running EXP at Bristol.

Notes: I modified the rocket chamber out of the X-1 Rislone rocket car designed by J.C. McCormick. I made an all-new fuel and pressure system, larger tank, increased the fuel flow, etc. We increased the thrust from 2500 lbs. to 3000 lbs. I installed the propulsion system in my Top Gas Dragster. The car was sponsored by the Tony Fox team. - Ky Michaelson | Ran 6.13 at Great Lakes on 9-03-72.

Notes: Paula had driven Tony Fox's Pollution Packer car at the Winternationals and Bonneville, which gave her the bug to build her own rocket. Don Tuttle built this chassis with a Ky Michaelson engine. On her first full pass in the car at Sears Point Raceway in Sonoma, the fuel did not shut off. The parachutes failed and the car hit the end of the strip and went airborne. Paula suffered a broken neck and was out of commission for three years. She returned to race around the world with Johnny Parsons in 1976 in two different Pontiac race cars. Paula went on to race a B, Modified Datsun, but never got it sorted out. She then raced a Z/Stock Honda Civic with factory backing that was undoubtedly one of the first front wheel cars to race on a drag strip. - Paula and Dan Murphy, Racin & Rockin Radio Show, March 28, 2011
