Notes: Dale qualified #5 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.39-268.65. Unfortunately, he lost to Kenny Bernstein in the first round. The team ran a very limited schedule, showing up mostly at races close to home. In July, Pulde was driving the car at Sonoma for the NHRA California Nationals. A 5.60-250.34 qualified #13. A first round 5.80 lost to Jim White's 5.67. He also attempted to qualify at the next NHRA race, the Seafair Nationals at Seattle, but his 5.75-201.79 best was only good enough for second alternate. After skipping the next few races, the team showed up at Firebird Raceway for the NHRA Fallnationals where they qualified #3 with a 5.49-268.82. Pulde lost in the first round. His best NHRA outing of '89 came at the season ending World Finals back at Pomona. Dale ran a 5.41-268.35 to qualify #8. A first round 5.52-266.11 beat Al Hofmann and in round two a 5.57-251.11 got around Jerry Caminito. In the semifinals, he lost to Bruce Larson's 5.37-252 with a 5.56-264.00.

Notes: The Nitro Funny Cars set the Quit Motorplex alight last night with a fantastic display of match racing from the Greene Machine and Chemical Warfare teams. The best was saved for last when Allan Dobson ran an awesome 5.33, Australia's quickest ever funny car pass. The run was one of the night's most spectacular when the skilled Dobson pedalled at around 200 feet, locking up the clutch and putting the front wheels about a foot into the air with a powerstand out to almost half track. Unfortunately Dobson clipped a timing box at the finish line with the body, handing the win to Ashley Bailey. The first round match up saw Dobson smoke the tyres 100 feet out, facing both walls before wrangling the car back into the middle of the lane. Bailey ran through for a then PB 5.45. The second race was brilliant for the crowd with both cars pedalling several times, remaining even right to the 1,000 ft beam before Bailey clicked early, Dobson able to thunder through for a 5.61-284mph win against Bailey's 5.85. Of course the final race was the best, Dobson's 5.33 narrowly defeating a 5.44 from Bailey. It was difficult to tell if Dobson left the ET beam intact or not on the finish line. If so this would be Australia's quickest side by side funny car race. If not, it probably would still have been given how close Bailey was to Dobson at the finish line. All in all a fantastic show put on by the funny cars in front of the season's biggest crowd.

Notes: Photo from 1992 Winternationals. Richard qualified #13 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.41-279.24. The speed was a career best for him at the time. A first round 5.51-249.51 lost to Jim Epler's 5.29-261. A 5.51-274.22 qualified #11 at the NHRA Arizona Nationals and in round one he beat Del Worsham with a 5.43-276.58. He got past Whit Bazemore in round two with a 5.63-271.98. In the semifinals, he ran and beat Gary Densham's 5.88-254 with a 5.85-209.35 as both cars had traction problems. In the final, Hartman again went up in smoke and his 8.63-95.91 finished runner-up to Tom Hoover's 5.27-263. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, he qualified #14 with a 5.51-274.30. He beat Mark Oswald in the first round with a 5.47-277.69, but in the second round he fouled away a 5.48-241.67 to lose to Hoover's 5.35-193.

Notes: Photo from Indy 1988. | Bruce stepped up his act in '88 and it showed when he won his first NHRA National event this year. His season started at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals where he qualified #9 with a 5.54. That set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Ed McCulloch. In that race, Ed smoked the tires while Larson motored into the second round where his 5.58 lost to John Force's 5.42. At Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #12 with a 5.69. Unfortunately, he lost to Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" car in the first round. He did not race in the IHRA events this year so the next big event he attended was the NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta where he lasted until the second round where Oswald's 5.55 stopped his 5.62 from advancing. Oswald got him again at the NHRA Mid-South Nationals, only this time it was in the first round. Bruce had qualified #12 there with a 5.72. Larson got his first NHRA win at the Cajun Nationals at the end of May. He beat Tom Hoover and a fouling Force with a 5.60-254 in the first two rounds. In the semifinals, he beat McCulloch and in the final, it was Kenny Bernstein he beat for his first victory. After that it wasn't long before he was in another NHRA final; in fact it came at the very next race, the Springnationals at Columbus. Bruce qualified #4 with a 5.51. He took out Chuck Etchells in the first round and a 5.50-268 beat John Martin in round two. In the semifinals, Mike Dunn smoked the tires against him and Bruce's 5.54-254 run moved him into the final to face Force. It was not much of a race in the final; when Larson smoked the tires and shut off to a 13.69-50.65 while John ran 5.52-262 for the victory. Bruce followed the NHRA tour up north to Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals. He qualified #7 with a 5.65-263.00 and lasted until the second round when eventual winner Don Prudhomme's 5.50 beat his 5.59. Then came another final round appearance at the NHRA Summernationals. A 5.49-261.55 qualified #5 and he beat Frank Kramberger in the first round. A second round 5.59-260 beat Force's 5.65-251, and in the semifinals, a 5.57-260 beat Bernstein's 5.62-255. In the final, he ran Prudhomme who had been running steady 5.4's. Bruce tried hard, running a 5.63-260, but it finished second best to the "Snake's" 5.41-257. He made a stop at Maple Grove for the Super Stock Nationals where he qualified #2 in the eight car show with a 5.55-254.95. R.C. Sherman fouled against him in the first round and Bruce advanced with a 5.68-251.29. In the semifinals, he soloed with a 5.76-254.23 when Tim Grose broke and was unable to run. He found himself in another final, and while it wasn't a national event, I'm sure he still felt good. In the final, he faced low qualifier Bernstein. Kenny got the win while Larson got another runner-up finish. At Seattle for the NHRA Seafair Nationals in Aug, everyone was running 5.3's in qualifying, except, it seemed, Larson. He qualified #8 with a 5.45-267.30. In the first round he showed he could run with the big dogs by beating Bryan Raines with a 5.35. In the second round, a 5.52 beat a tire smoking Oswald. He was surprised by a quick leaving Brad Tuttle in the semifinals and his 5.59 couldn't catch Brad's 5.62.

Notes: West started the '88 season at Firebird Raceway's Super Bowl of Drag Racing. He qualified #5 in the eight car show with a 5.82-247, setting up a first round race with low qualifier John Force. He lost the race, running a 5.93-243.24 to Force's 5.40-268. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he again lost to Force in the first round. He qualified #13 with a 5.68. At the NHRA Gatornationals, West ran much better in qualifying, turning a 5.45 for the #5 spot. Unfortunately, he still couldn't get out of the first round, as this time Jim Head beat him.

He faced low qualifier John Force in the first round and beat him with a 5.39-260.11 to Force's 5.46-275. In the second round be lost to Kenny Bernstein. At the next event, the Supernationals at Houston, he qualified #10 with a 5.43-264.23 and once again met Force in the first round. Again Hoover stepped up with a 5.36 beating John in the first round for the second straight race. Unfortunately, just like at the first event, Hoover lost in round two. This time he smoked the tires and shut off, giving Scott Kalitta an easy (7.60-150) victory. At the Gatornationals, he again qualified #10 with a 5.45-264.16 getting the spot. He lost to Bruce Larson in the first round. At the fourth race of the season, the Southern Nationals, he qualified #6 with a 5.49-244.75. He beat Chuck Etchells in the first round but lost to Force in round two. It was on to Memphis for the Mid South Nationals where a 5.36-264.78 qualified #5. He beat John Martin in the first round but then smoked the tires in round two and lost to Bernstein. At the Cajun Nationals, he lost in the first round after qualifying #11 with a 5.57-263.15. Things went much better at the Springnationals. He qualified in the dreaded #9 spot with a 5.44-252.66 setting up a first round meeting with low qualifier Don Prudhomme. In that race, Don overpowered the track and smoked the tires while Hoover hustled (?) to a 5.67-183 win. In the second round, he faced Mark Oswald. Mark broke after his burnout and Tom ran a 12.00-67 for the win. In the semifinals, Jim White smoked the tires and a 5.55-242 got Tom into the final. His luck ran out in the final when Larson's 5.42-275 dropped the Firebird's smoky 6.79-135.89. The tour then traveled to Canada for the Grandnationals. A 5.54-256.77 qualified #5 and he beat Jerry Caminito in the first round with a 5.57-251.18. In the second round, Bernstein's 5.47-270 beat Tom's 5.68-211.29. The ninth race on the NHRA schedule was the Summernationals at Englishtown. Hoover ran a 5.38 to qualify #5 and he beat Etchells in the first round. In the second round he got out of shape just off the line and lost to Prudhomme. His dad, George Hoover, showed that he could tune a car in the thin air of Denver for the next race, the Mile High Nationals. Tom ran a 5.76-248.61 in qualifying #8, even out qualifying Prudhomme. In the first round be beat Gary Ritter but in round two he lost to Ed McCulloch. At the California Nationals, Tom qualified #10 with a 5.47-256.70. But once again McCulloch got him, this time in the first round. At Seattle for the NHRA Seafair Nationals, a 5.47-273.63 qualified #10. This time Prudhomme beat him in round one. The next stop on the NHRA tour was at Brainerd for the Northstar Nationals. Tom qualified #12 with a 5.66-261.55 and in the first round he improved to a 5.54-265.48 but it wasn't enough to get around Prudhomme's 5.49-261. Hoover almost didn't make the field at Indy for the NHRA U.S. Nationals. He ran a best of 5.55-259.36 in qualifying and that just held for the "bump" spot. In the first round he improved to a 5.42-238.28 that beat Bernstein's tire smoking 7.80-111, but in the second round, he went into a wheelstand and shut off against Etchells. The following week (Sept 10), he was at Darlington for the IHRA U.S. Open. Tom qualified #3 in the eight car show with a 5.54-265.01 but in the first round he blew a motor and lost to Johnny West. At Maple Grove for the NHRA Keystone Nationals, a 5.41-253.09 qualified #10. He fouled against Oswald in the first round.
