Gwynn also became the first person to break the 275 mph barrier with a run of 278.55. Earlier in the season, Darrell ran a quickest ever 5.342 as low qualifier at the NHRA Summers in Englishtown, NJ. The 5.261 was low qualifier at Ennis.

Notes: Rick Howard photo from Edgewater Raceway Park, Cincy, OH. (2-07-1971 - Don Garlits wins NHRA Winternationals in rear engine dragster (7.03 seconds at 214.79 mph) minus rear-wing. Also ran 6.26 NR at Gainesville on 3-18-71 and 6.35 NR at US 131 on 8-71. 6.53 low qualifier at Gators and 6.21 low qualifier at Indy. Beat Keeling and Clayton digger with Rick Ramsey up at Bakersfield 1971 with an ET of 6.71, 223 mph to a quicker 6.64, 224. BACK STORY: Don was having trouble getting the new rear engine car to go straight. Before he figured that out (slow down the steering), he built a slingshot to race for the 1971 season. Wife Pat saw it in his garage and told him to "Get your guys together and make that rear engine car work." They did and the rest is history. Don provided the slingshot to Goodyear to use as a promotional display. He loaded up both cars in a small trailer and headed west. Upon arriving in California, he opened the door a crack with a number of his fellow racers in attendance. They caught a peek at the slingshot and all began laughing, sure that Garlits had given up on his crazy rear engine dragster idea and was going to race a conventional car. Garlits gave the car to Goodyear, then went to the AHRA race, where AHRA boss Jim Tice looked into the trailer and saw rear engine car in pieces (in order to fit both cars, it had to be disassembled). Tice ordered Garlits to put it together right at the gate, so that every fan coming in would see that Garlits was there and that he had this new rear engine car. When Don got it put together and was ready to race, the slingshot drivers did not want to face him, knowing the handling disasters that previous rear engine cars had been. Don was told to take a single and that if he touched either stripe, he would be out of there. Don made a straight and true pass down the track, and he was in. He made it to the finals, where Gary Cochran got him with a holeshot in a slingshot. But the writing was on the wall, and within two years, almost every top fuel team in the country had a new rear engine car. - Don Garlits (paraphrased), from the Racin' and Rockin' with Draglist.com radio show, July 9, 2010).

He qualified second with a 7.62-199.10. He beat Dick Lechien and Bill Leavitt before running a 7.59-205 in the final to beat Tommy Allen's 7.90-208. On Jan 23 he was at Pomona for its Jackpot race. John qualified fourth with a 7.80-204.08. That wasn't bad considering that there were 34 cars going for the 16 positions. In round two, John lost to Dave Beebe. At the AHRA Winternationals at Irwindale, the team ran well, beating Tom McEwen in the semi-finals but losing an engine while winning. Unfortunately, they were unable to run in the final giving Bob Hightower a single for the win. John's 7.71-198.22 qualified #14 in the 32 car field at Lions for the UDRA Winternationals on Feb 26. He failed to reach the finals. At the Bakersfield March Meet, he got out of shape in the first round of eliminations on Sunday against Mike Snively and lost. The team was at Lions for a sixteen car show on March 26 where a 7.89-198.66 qualified #7. He beat Gary Casaday in the first round with a 7.96-196.50 but lost in the next round. Another sixteen car show was run at Irwindale on April 2. Mulligan beat Dwight Salisbury in the first round with a 7.76-199.54 before slowing to a 10.64-91.63 second round loss to Dave Beebe's 7.70-210. Another win came their way on April 17 at Riverside for a Jackpot Circuit event. John qualified first with a 7.67 and he set low ET with a first round 7.61, beating Jack Ewell. In the semi-final, a 7.80 beat Tommy Allen who shut off early. In the final, a holeshot 7.95-205.00 beat Paul Sutherland's quicker 7.83-188. The following day (April 18) found them all Lions for an eight car show. Again John qualified first, this time a low ET of the meet 7.47 at 205.46 got him the spot. Nick Marshall fouled against him in the first round and Connie Swingle did the same in the semi's. John's two runs were 8.05-138.46 and 9.37-106.00 but here he was in another TF final round. Unfortunately, a final round 8.03-146.34 was no match for James Warren's 7.72. John was runner-up at Lions again on April 23 when he fouled away a 7.57-197.80 against Beebe in the final. Mulligan had qualified second with a 7.68-181.08 and had run a 7.85-179.64 over an out of shape Warren and a 8.26-146.10 beat Krohn and Angeleri's Injected Chevy fueler in the semi-finals. It was on April 24 that the drag racing world really started to notice the Adams-Warye-Mulligan team when they were at Pomona for a Jackpot Circuit race. In the first round, John soared to Low ET and top speed with a 7.30-219.50 drilling of Allen. In the second round he faced Chuck Griffith but John's clutch was failing and the car pulled through the beams and fouled. He still ran a 7.43 in the loss. They ran at Beeline's Fuel and Gas Championships on April 30 and even though they beat Glenn Brown in the first round with a 7.66, the speed of 180.36 showed that they hurt their engine and were unable to run in the semi-final. Lions held a sixteen car show on May 14, and a 7.96 qualified in the middle of the field. John shut off early in the first round and his 8.08-142.65 lost to Larry Faust's engine blowing 8.14-182. Since Faust was unable to return, John got back in on the "break rule" but lost again with a ailing 9.58 losing to John Edmunds' 7.92-201. The team traveled to Sacramento on May 22 for the Division Seven points race and qualified with a 7.97 at only 159.50. They failed to reach the finals. John set Lions track records of 7.31-216.34 while qualifying first on May 28 for a sixteen car show. In the first round he beat Ron Goodsell's 7.85-200 with a 7.39-213.76, but Beebe's 7.59-207 beat John's quicker 7.51-204.54 in the second round. John cracked off a low ET 7.24 at 219.50 to lead qualifying at Riverside for the HRM Championships. Unfortunately, he lost to Mike Sorokin in the first round. He did better at Irwindale on July 9 where he set low ET and top speed in qualifying at 7.44-214.00. Another 7.44 at 205.94 beat Allen and a 7.50-206.88 beat Ron Hampshire in the semi-finals. In the final, he met Danny Ongais who lost a clutch on the line and Mulligan won with a 7.53-213.28. Another win came at Carlsbad on May 29 where he qualified first with a 7.49 at a track speed record of 221.12. He ran 7.87-215.30 and low ET of the meet, 7.44 at 218.44 in the rounds leading up to the final where a 7.91-203.16 beat Tommy Allen's 8.27. On August 7, Mulligan ran 7.16 to qualify first at Lions for the AHRA World Championships. A first round 7.31-218.44 (top speed) beat Bob Brooks but in the second round the car failed to fire. Dave Beebe met John at Irwindale on August 20 for a best of three match race. This was big as Dave was winning a lot of races at the time. John won the match two straight with times of 7.49-203.16 over Beebe's 7.68-208 and 7.30-206.88 to Beebe's early shut off 7.76-191.08.

Notes: Ill Planned Streamliner. Photo from Indy 1987. Gwynn was first under 5.20 at the Ennis All Stars race in April 1987 with a 5.176 at 276.15 mph, then went nuts at the return to Ennis in October: Gwynn's Budweiser dragster qualified with a sizzling 5.13, 281.07, and then rattled off incredible times of 5.12, 281.42. 5.16, 278.29. 5.09, 281.95. and, in the final, a Low E.T., new National Record 5.084 at 280.37 mph to win handily. Times took a precipitous drop in 1987. Gwynn set the national record at 5.220 low qualifying shot at the Gators, then went 5.174 at the All-Stars (no records recorded there), then set the record at 5.204 at Atlanta. At the Chiefs, set the record three times: 5.123, 5.092, and 5.084.

Notes: In 1969, B&M won the Winternationals in their 392-powered Woody car which had debuted at the 1968 World Finals. By mid-summer of '69 the team had changed to a Ramchargers-sourced elephant motor. Qualified #1 (6.43) at Indy '69 with an all-time quickest ET on low qualifying pass. The stunning time stood as the sport's best for a year. John ran three of the 15 fastest speeds in 1969. Originally listed a 241, but that time was not supported by Beebe-Mulligan.com, which cited a best 1969 speed of 233.32. John died at Indy 1969 when he had a terrible fire during a first round win. See the racer website for details. -- BM | Beebe-Mulligan reset the track record at Union Grove two days running in early June '69, with a 6.70 following the previous day's 6.71. -- RT Mulligan started his '69 season at the AHRA Winternationals where a 6.99 qualified second. He failed to make it into the later rounds but as mentioned above, Pomona was a different story. At the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified with a 7.16-225.00. A first round 7.12-221.13 beat Tom Larkin's 7.24-206. In round two, a 6.86-222.77 beat James Warren's 7.14-214. Bennie Osborn's 7.42 fell to John's 6.86-221.13 in the third round and a 6.93-217.91 beat Leroy Goldstein in the semi-final. For the win, a 6.95-211.38 beat Don Prudhomme's 8.52-126. It was quite a win, considering 82 cars fought for the 32 spots available. At the second OCIR All-Pro race at OCIR on Feb 9, a 6.94 qualified #3, but in the first round, he lost a blower belt slowing the car to a 7.11-208.80 that lost to Dave Beebe's 7.01-211. At the Stardust Open on Feb 16 at Las Vegas, a 7.12 qualified #2. Mulligan singled in the first round when Tommy Allen's car wouldn't stay lit. In the second round, he set a 6.85 track record while beating Hank Westmoreland. Ron Rivero lost to John's 6.90-221.57 in the semi-final that set-up a rematch of the Pomona finalists. This time, Prudhomme came out on top with a 6.94-216 beating John's 7.10-211.76 runner-up effort. At the Bakersfield March Meet, a 6.88-225 beat Butch Maas' 6.95-222 in the first round but in the second round he lost a blower and the race to Steve Carbone. On March 16 at Riverside for the HRM Championships,John qualified #8 with a 7.01. In the first round, he beat Maas again with a 7.10-233.22 (top speed). A 7.14-216.86 beat Jerry Ruth's quicker 7.02-219 in round two but he hurt some parts and was unable to return for the third round bringing Ruth back into the show on the break rule. Mulligan set top speed again at the final OCIR All-Pro race on March 29, when a first round 7.06-222.76 beat Gerry Glenn. Against Prudhomme in the semis, he had a violent engine explosion and lost. He was not hurt.
