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: My buddy Travis Perrenot sent me the following story. The most forgotten car of all time must be Kent Chatagnier and the "Kent's Speed Shop" fueler from Beaumont, Texas. Running a fuel burning Pontiac, he totally upset the world of drag racing in 1960 by running the "forgotten" 200 mile per hour runs at Houston. He made four runs that day between 197.36 and 201.78 miles per hour. He did everything that was required at that time to back up the speed, as called for by the Drag News Standard 1320 rules that were in place. Drag News published the record for several months as the "official" standard 1320 AA/FD speed record. After a while, Kent no longer was credited as being the first 200 mph run. [In early 1961, Drag News wiped all The Standard 1320 records clean and started over.] The argument through the years has been that he never did it again. Chris Karamesines did not back up his 204 at Alton and did not run close to 200 again for years. Ivo didn't back his 200 up. No one did it and backed it up until Garlits did EXCEPT that unknown kid from Beaumont Texas, Kent Chatagnier. - Harrison Inglis. | Need to confirm ET. Formerly rnhad 7.60 listed but that is way too quick for 1960.

Notes: Jim Brissette car listed at 7.57-205 best in Herbert Cams ad. Confirm that it was this car and driver. | Bill started the year driving for Jim Brissette and on Jan 1 the team was at Riverside for the KFWB Drag Festival where Bill qualified in the eight car field with a 7.90-199.54. Unfortunately, in the first round, he fouled away a 7.92-194.38 against Bobby Tapia. On Jan 3, they were at Fontana for the UDRA race but this time Bill lost fire in the first round. Pomona held an eight car show on Jan 17 and Alexander qualified with a 7.99-200.44 but he was having clutch issues and withdrew from competition. A whopping 31 cars showed up to qualify for eight positions at Lions on Jan 30. Bill ran 7.71-186.32 to qualify #2. He stayed strong in eliminations, running 7.88-197.80 in the first round and 8.01-189.06 in the semifinals when Zane Schubert fouled but in the final, his off pace 8.42-182.18 finished runner-up to Ed Pink's "Old Master" driven by Mike Snively at 8.21. Both cars smoked the tires in the final. Bill ran a best of 8.02-200.00 in attempting to qualify at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals but he just missed making the show. He got a break when Ron Rivero had hurt his motor in qualifying and Alexander replaced him in the field. He almost went all the way. Bill got to the final when every car he raced fouled against him. In the first two rounds, it was first Tom McEwen and then Don Garlits who both saw red, and then in the semifinals, Connie Kalitta also fouled out against him. In the final, he ran 7.92-198.22 but lost to Don Prudhomme's 7.76-201 in the "Hawaiian."

Notes: 25 inches longer than the 1964 model of the car. Acknowledged as the all time fastest at the end of 1965 at 219.50 mph (although we have other cars listed at that speed). Need to confirm the other 1965 cars that went 219.50.| On Jan 16, Sutherland was at Lions for an eight car show where his 7.93-187.88 qualified on the bubble. An 8.00-190.26 lost to James Warren's 7.99-189 in the first round. The next day, he was at Pomona where he ran 7.97-195.22 in qualifying. He improved to a 7.86-196.06 in the first round over Doug Robinson in the "Horsepower Engineering" car. In the semifinals, Gary Gabelich broke against him. Paul's solo run was not without issues as a small fire developed as he made his pass. He got the car fixed for the final but he fouled away a 8.16-196.02, giving Norm Weekly in the "Frantic Four" the win.

Notes: New Ron Dixon FED in 1969. Went down to KB's shop to look at new hemis. But Charlie Allen said he had a brand new injector to pan 426 he would sell them. So they bought it and bolted it into the FED. The next weekend at Saskatoon, we ran 242 and set the track record. Folks thought it was a bogus time. But then we ran went to SIR and went 245 or 246 Doner's track. For a time, we were the fastest front engine dragster in the world. - Terry Capp, Racin & Rockin Radio, 5/04/15

Notes: Confirmed 265.48 at 86 Winters. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. Conrad started the season by qualifying #6 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.50-261.62. He improved to career bests (to this point) of 5.42-267.06 in the first round to beat Don Durbin's 5.73-233. In the second round, Gary Beck smoked the tires against him and Kalitta moved on with a 5.52-253.52. In the semifinals, he took out Joe Amato with a 5.54-265.48 to Joe's 5.59-260. This put him into the final with Darrell Gwynn. Connie slowed to 5.72-209.79 while Gwynn got his first NHRA TF win with a 5.46-257. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he again qualified #6, this time a 5.57-263.62 got him the spot. A 5.50-257.58 beat Gary Ormsby's 5.69-215 in the first round but in round two his 5.60-255.24 lost to Gary Beck's holeshot,5.63-257. The next NHRA event was the Southern Nationals at Atlanta.Kalitta was a little of in qualifying when he ran 5.67-243.11 for the #9 spot. This set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Amato. Sure enough, Amato's 5.61-253 beat Kalitta's 5.69-256.41. He qualified much better at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals where a 5.52-254.30 qualified #2. Unfortunately, he lost to Ormsby's 5.57-251 in the first round with an off-pace,6.00-182.77. Things all fell into place at the NHRA Springnationals. There he qualified #5 with a 5.56-248.75. He advanced past a fouling Chris Karamesines in round one with a5.76-212.86 while in round two his 5.70-243.90 got around Ormsby who smoked the tires. Dan Pastorini hazed the tires against him in the semifinals and Conrad moved into the final with a 5.61-253.02. He was to run Amato for the title but Joe broke so Kalitta ran 5.65-217.91 to score the victory. At the end of June, the NHRA tour was in Canada for the Grandnationals. Once again Connie qualified in the top half of the field with a 5.60-253.80 to give him the #6 spot. An improved 5.51-261.32 in the first round beat Bob Simmons but in round two his engine gave up and he slowed to 6.25 that lost to Dick LaHaie's 5.43-257.

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 National Record at Gainesville on 3-18-71 and 6.35 National Record at U.S. 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).

Notes: One half of quickest side by side race in history at 86 Gators, Garlits' 5.409 to Dan's 5.491. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. | Dan started the season by running a career best (to this point) 5.52 at 256.41 to qualify #7 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He fouled away a 5.61 in the first round against Earl Whiting. He bettered his career best in qualifying for the next NHRA event, the Gatornationals. There he qualified #3 with a 5.48-254.09. A first round 5.73-251.81 beat Shirley Muldowney's quicker 5.65-250. He soloed in round two with a 7.29-118.73 when Chris Karamesines was unable to run. In the semifinals, he had a great race with Don Garlits with "Big Daddy's" 5.50-272 getting the win over Dan's 5.49-256.95. At Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals, Pastorini got his first big NHRA win. He qualified #8 for the show with a 5.67-252.38 and he advanced past round one with a 7.54-101 when Jack Revelle broke a transmission. In round two, both he and Dick LaHaie smoked the tires with Dan's 6.11-235.97 getting the win over Dick's 6.16-245. In the semifinals, a 5.75-248.34 beat Bill Mullins' 5.78-256 in John Carey's car. In the final, he was up against that cagey veteran Gene Snow. The two left together with Pastorini scoring the win with a 5.56-256.70 over the "Snowman's" 5.64-244. He got into another final at Famoso for the Bakersfield Meet in May. A 5.54-243.90 qualified #2 in the eight car show. He beat Bill Carter in round one with a 5.53 and in the semifinals he soloed when Whiting was unable to run after losing an engine in the first round. In the final, Dan came up against Garlits. Once again the "Old Man" got the win with a 5.40-271 over Pastorini's runner-up effort of 5.57-253. At Baton Rouge in early June for the NHRA Cajun Nationals, Dan didn't have a very productive outing. He qualified #12 with a 5.72-236.22 and in the first round his 5.62-250.00 lost to Muldowney's 5.57-250. National Trail had 27 cars show up to qualify for the sixteen car field. Dan qualified #11 with a 5.63-238.60 and in the first round got a measure of revenge over Garlits when his 5.69-234.31 beat Don's 5.73-251. In the second round, he beat Darrell Gwynn's 5.67-250 with a 5.60-242.39. Unfortunately, in the semifinals, he hazed his tires and shut off to a 6.89-127 that lost to eventual winner Connie Kalitta's 5.61-253.Pastorini made the trip to Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals where he qualified #9 with a 5.64-256.99. He lost to low qualifier Gwynn in the first round when his 5.92-254.09 finished second to Darrell's 5.43-265.
