Notes: Amazing run at Chief Auto Parts Nationals ushered in a new performance era. Dale Armstrong helped with the tuning on this National Record. Gwynn became the fastest person in NHRA history when he breaks the 5.30 second barrier by running 5.280, 5.261, 5.276, and 5.272. 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: During the 1967 season Beebe and Mulligan recorded three of the 13 quickest ET's with a best of 6.70, and one of the 14 best top speeds at 230.76. - Beebe-Mulligan.com. Confirmed by NHRA.com. | Listed 6.95-216 best on INDY entry form. | John was out to set top speed everywhere he went. The Tim Beebe prepared Chrysler Hemi made getting those speeds a little easier for John. He showed up at Carlsbad on Jan 1 for a TF show but only four cars showed. John set top speed with a 7.24-230.16 in his race against Dave Russell. Unfortunately, he hurt the motor and was unable to run in the final. At the AHRA Winternatiionals, Mulligan lasted until the semifinals before losing to Connie Kalitta's Ford. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified #22 in the 32 car show with a 7.42-213.76 but he failed in his bid to make the final.

Notes: Four-day-old dragster won Ennis 89 with a 4.972 at 291.26 over Gwynn (holeshot over Darrell's 4.940). Quickest and fastest at the time (speed tied with Brotherton, but Ormsby got the records). Also 4.926 at 89 Chiefs for the backup. Also 291.63 national record at Keystones and 293.73. Became the fifth entry in the Cragar 4-Second Club for Top Fuel with a 4.991 on June 10, 1989, at Columbus. Photo from Columbus 1989. What can you say about Ormsby in '89, six NHRA National event wins and the TF championship. He started the season by qualifying #2 at Pomona with a 5.04-284.72 and went on to win the Winnternationals by running a 5.07-277.52 over Shirley Muldowney's 5.13-275, a second round 5.07-280.19 beat Jack Ostrander and in the semifinals, he beat Dennis Forcelle's 5.18-262 with a 5.05-278.81. In the final, he met Frank Bradley and a consistent 5.05-278.81 beat Bradley's 5.28-260. He went two for two when he won the next race, the Supernationals at Houston. There he qualified way back in the #12 spot with a 5.11 and another 5.11 in the first round beat Richard Holcomb. He was running like a bracket racer when in the second round he beat Lori Johns' 5.13 with yet another 5.11. In the semifinals, he quickened his pace to a 5.08-278 to beat a tire-smoking Frank Cook. In the final, he met up with a strong running Joe Amato who had set low ET (4.99). Joe ran a final round 5.03-288 but lost to Ormsby's holeshot, 5.09-278.12. The next NHRA event was the Gatornationals where Gary ran a 5.09 to qualify #2. Unfortunately, a first round 5.16 lost to Hank Endres' 5.13. It was then off to Atlanta for the Southern Nationals. A 5.13-275.89 qualified #4. He beat Connie Kalitta and Amato in the first two rounds with times of 5.17-276.83 and 5.20-275.06 but he slowed to a 5.32-272.14 in the semifinal and lost to Eddie Hill's 5.20-267. Race five on the schedule was the Mid-South Nationals at Memphis. Gary took his first pole of the year with a 5.03-287.35. Robert Reehl lost to Ormsby's 5.16 in the first round and in round two, Gary ran a 5.06-286 over Bradley's strong 5.10. In the semifinals, both he and Darrell Gwynn ran 5.04's but the Castrol car won. In the final, he took his third win of the season with a 5.03-287 beating Hill. Race six was the Cajun Nationals where a 5.15-284.90 qualified #2. Frank Hawley beat him in the first round when Gary smoked the tires. The next stop on the tour was the Springnationals. Gary qualified first with National Trail's first four-second pass, a 4.99 at a track record speed as well at 287.53 (tied by Gene Snow). He beat Rudy Toepke in the first round with a 5.03 and a second round 5.12-264 beat Forcelle, but in the semifinals, he smoked the tires and lost to Amato. The tour shifted to Canada for the Grandnationals. There Ormsby used a 5.14-279.24 to qualify #2. He ran runs of 5.11-282.39 (low ET & tying top speed) over Pat Dakin, 5.18-278.46 over Forcelle, and a semifinal 5.19-276.83 over Johns to meet Dick LaHaie in the final. Gary got his fourth win of the season with a 5.15-278.98 beating Dick's 5.21-274. Englishtown was next and a 5.19-278.81 qualified #9 for the Summernationals. This set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Bradley. Gary beat Frank in the first round and went on to beat Earl Whitting with a 5.17-280 and Hill in the semis with a 5.18-281. In the final, he met LaHaie again but this time, the roles were reversed with Dick's 5.11-282 beating Gary's 5.24-271.57. Next came the Mile High Nationals in Denver. A 5.25-270.43 in the thin air was good enough to qualify #3. He beat Kalitta in the first round and a 5.27-270 beat Hill in round two. He picked up to a 5.22-264 in the semi's to beat Johns' 5.27-271. In the final, he ran Amato and an off-pace 5.33-270.75 gave Gary his second runner-up in a row. The tour moved on to the California Nationals run on July 30. Ormsby ran a 5.05-289.29 to qualify #2. In the first round he beat Cook's 5.19-269 with a 5.09-289.85 (top speed), but in round two the car fell off to a 5.52-282.39 that lost to Jim Head's 5.21-271. Seattle was the next stop for the Seafair Nationals. A 5.05-285.44 qualified #3. He beat Gwynn in the first round with a 5.04-283.82. In round two, a 5.11-280.81 beat Shirley Muldowney's 5.14-282. Unfortunately for Gary, a semifinal 5.14-279.15 lost to Amato's 5.07-273. The next event was not to Gary's liking. He had qualified well at the Northstar Nationals with a 5.15-282.75 but in the first round against Kalitta he crashed and totaled his car when he hit the guardrail. He was OK, the car was not.

Notes: First car over 260 with a 262.39 National Record at Gainesville in March 1984 (backed up by 260.11). Just beat Kenny Bernstein to the mark. Did it partially by coming out with a much taller wing than normal. Later upped the mark at the Summernationals. Also ran 263.92 at the Cajun Nationals in June 1984.
