Notes: Kendall GT-1 "Rebel." Held NHRA record with this car. Is the 215 run legit? - DW | Confirmed 7.45 at Memphis. | Bobby won the AHRA Southern Nationals at Memphis on May 31, running a 7.74-191.31 in the final. On June 28, at Miami-Hollywood, he met Paula Murphy for a best two out of three match race. In the first race, he set a 7.65 track record at 194.38 over Paula who fouled on an 8.17-189 pass. Woods won all three races with second and third runs of 7.78-191.88 and 7.73-190.66. On July 6 he was runner-up to Arnie Behling when they both ran 7.72 in the final of U.S. 30's Grand Prix of Drag Racing. Bobby's speed was 204. The following day, they ran again at U.S. 30 and this time he won with a 7.58-207 (Top Speed) after earlier setting Low ET at 7.49. On July 11, he faced a tough match race against Leonard Hughes at Memphis. The first race went to Woods' 7.59-191 when Hughes got out of shape. He won the second race as well with a 7.61-191.92 beating Hughes' 7.65-202. In the third race, Leonard's 7.71-195 beat Woods' 7.78 but his two wins had already won Woods the match. On Aug 3 at Shelby Raceway, he set a new NHRA record at 7.58 while beating Ed Schartman three straight. His times were 7.58-194, 7.54-191, and 7.58-190. Ed's best was a 7.97-181. Still on the match race trail, he met Sid Foster on Aug 9 at Palmetto and won three straight with a 7.56-198 winning the first race when Foster fouled on a 7.72-194 pass. Foster's Torino broke and couldn't make the final two races so Woods' ran a 7.54-180 while breaking a blower drive, and a track record 7.39 at 201. On Sept 7, he went back to Shelby Raceway for the Memphis FC 500. He ran a first round 7.62 when Frank Oglesby's Cougar broke. In the second round, a 7.50 beat Gary Dyer in the Mr. Norm Charger. In the final, his 7.45 beat Roger Lindamood's 7.50. He qualified eighth at the NHRA Nationals at Indy with a 7.45. Kelly Chadwick's 7.38-196 beat his 7.55-199.11 in the first round. At the 1,000 foot track at Southeastern Dragstrip, they held an eight-car show on Sept 28. Bobby ran a first round 6.20 over Scottie Sharp. In the semifinal, a 6.53 beat Paul Array's Cuda. But a final round 6.15 by Curtis Wasson gave Woods the runner-up spot. On Oct 19, he was at Courtland for a best of three match against Schartman's Cougar driven by Arnie Behling. Woods won all three races with 7.62, 7.64, and 7.66 times. He ran a match race at Dallas on Oct 26 against Don Garlits dragster. There was no handicap as the cars ran heads-up. Although Woods got out first in every run, he still lost all three races. As the season ended he took another win at the Turkey Trot Nationals at Gainesville on Nov 30. He set Low ET in the final when his 7.30-193.76 beat Joe Petruccelli. - Ron Howard

Notes: Mike and Joe had a good season in '89. It started at the Winternationals where Mike qualified #2 with a 5.34-279.85 (Top Speed). He had a bit of a snooze in the first round and his 5.42-269.13 lost to Jim White's 5.46-258. They went on to the Supernationals where once again they lost in the first round. At the Gatornationals, Mike set track records of 5.28-280.19 in qualifying first but for the third straight race they lost in round one. This time to R.C. Sherman. Things went much better in Atlanta for the Southern Nationals. A 5.48-266.35 qualified #5. He beat Tony McCallum and low qualifier Bruce Larson in the first two rounds. In the semifinal, he beat Don Prudhomme's 5.53 with a 5.48-263.15. In the final, he met newcomer Eric Reed. Reed smoked the tires and Dunn claimed his first win of the season with a 5.60-264.08. The next event on the schedule was the Mid-South Nationals at Memphis. There Mike used a 5.31-280.98 (Top Speed) qualified #2. He lost to Art Hendey in round one. Mike took his second win at the Cajun Nationals. He qualified #3 with a 5.44-272.23 (Top Speed). He beat Tom Hoover in the first round and in the second round he got a solo because his competition, Whit Bazemore, was unable to run. In the semifinal, both he and Prudhomme smoked the tires but Mike's 5.83-254 came out on top. In the final, he faced John Martin but Martin broke and Dunn's 5.63-268.25 got the victory. The seventh race of the season was the Springnationals. Mike qualified #4 with a 5.33-274.97. He beat Martin in the first round. In the second round both he and Chuck Etchells smoked the tires and Chuck got the win. Mike and the Joe Pisano team did not run in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals but there were back on the tour for the next NHRA event, the Summernationals at Englishtown. Dunn ran 5.44 to qualify #10 but he lost to Ed McCulloch in round one. At Denver for the NHRA Mile High Nationals, a 5.68-255.46 qualified #5 in the thin air. He beat Jim Murphy in round one before losing to Kenny Bernstein's 5.62 with a 5.65 in round two. At Sonoma at the end of July for the NHRA California Nationals, Mike qualified #12 with a 5.59-265.33 but lost to Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" car in the first round. | Also 5.397 from 89 U.S. Nationals. Did Mike run a 5.229 somewhere this year, or is that actually the 1991 Snickers car? The car was deep PURPLE. Photo from Columbus 1989.

Notes: Third Woody Gilmore car. Photo taken at the 1973 NHRA U.S. Nationals, Indianapolis Raceway Park. Confirmed 6.47 at 221 for this car in 1973. | We ran back to back 6.30s at 235 at Englishtown 73, match racing Jungle Jim. This was just the 426 Ramchargers motor, not the 475 inch Ed Pink stroker. We could not make that bigger motor run as well as the smaller Rams motor, although the Snake, Ray Beadle, Pat Foster, and others had luck with it. We had two Ed Pink motors, but ran a tenth and a half slower than the 426. We ran high 6.30s at NY National. We ran 6.39 at Detroit. Then the Ramchargers came out and ran 6.38 to get the track record back. Then we came out and ran 6.36 to take it back again. I stopped racing at the end of 1973. I had developed some ulcer problems and that ended my deal. Too much living out a suitcase and not eating right, etc. Had a chance to race for Mazmanian a year later when Danny Ongais went Indycar racing, but was having too much fun with my young son and stayed out. Ended up driving display rigs for Mr. Gasket and Bob Glidden, but that was as close as I got to the action again. - Dwane Ong, Racin & Rockin with Draglist.com radio show, 6-08-15

Notes: This is the second car of 69, the mini Charger. After crashing the car at the Winternationals, Roland Leong had Logghe build a new Charger and he debuted on May 30 at an eight-car show at Irwindale where Reyes set Low ET at 7.47 but lost his first round race when Mike Van Sant's 7.55-196 in the Invader beat his 7.65-184.80. But Reyes got back in with the break rule in effect when Johnny Wright who won his first round race broke and couldn't return for the semifinal. So the Hawaiian had the lowest ET of the first round losers was brought back into the show to race Mike Van Sant again, only this time in the semis. The Invader lost fire on the line and Reyes advanced to the finals where he ran a 7.64-184.80 to win over Ron Leslie. The next day (May 31) he raced at OCIR for the FC 500. A 7.40-200.06 qualified first and a better 7.38 (Low ET) at 199.55 got past the first round, and another 7.38-199.11 beat Gordon Mineo in the second round. Larry got a free ride into the final when Manuel Herrera blew his motor on the line. In the final, a 7.63-200.07 (Top Speed) beat Randy Walls for another win. On Oct 11, the "Hawaiian" was at Irwindale for a best of three match race against the Fuel altered roadster of Sush Matsubara. Reyes won the match by winning the first two races with a 7.53-190.26 beating Sush's 7.78-194 in the first race and his 7.72-176.81 beat the out of shape roadster in the second race. Matsubara did win the last race with a 7.78-194 when the Charger lost a transmission. Larry finished the year by winning on Dec 14 at Irwindale for an eight car show. He qualified second with a 7.45 but improved to a 7.38-193.96 in the first round over Johnny Wright's 7.59-179. In the semifinal, he set Low ET with a 7.27-199.10 over Ray Alley's 7.74-194. In the final, a 7.35-199.54 beat Dave Beebe.

Notes: First paint of 73. Qualified in a field of Top Fuel cars at OCIR on 5/12/73 with a 6.72. Moved to Fresno in 74? Ran a 6.40 runner up at Indy U.S. Nationals on 9/73 Ran 6.37 at Portland. | After his tremendous '72 season, McCulloch hoped for more success for '73. It wasn't to be. '73 was good for him, but it was hard to top such a winning season as he had the year before. Ed started the season at Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals. He ran well but failed to reach the finals. At Pomona, he barely made the show, qualifying on the "bump" spot. The track was not good and he beat Leroy Chadderton in the "Hawaiian" in the first round with a 7.25-204. But in the second round, his 7.82-136 lost to Jim Murphy's 7.35-176. He did not qualify well at the Bakersfield March Meet either (#10), but he advanced past round one when Bill Leavitt fouled against him. A 7.48 in round two beat Gerry Glenn in John Lombardo's car and in the semifinals, his 7.42 beat Mike Van Sant in the "Stone, Woods and Cook" Mustang. He was the underdog in the final against Tom Hoover who had run 7.15 and 7.17 in the last two rounds and sure enough, Tom's 7.14-218 in the final gave Ed the runner-up spot with a 7.57-196. Times were more "normal" at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. He ran 6.46-219.51 to qualify #3 and he beat Kosty Ivanof in the first round. Gene Snow shut off against him in round two and McCulloch advanced with a 6.63 but he hurt his motor while winning. He ran out of time to repair for his semifinal race so Don Schumacher soloed into the final.Ed then won a sixteen car show at Miami near the end of March. He qualified #2 with a 6.76 and in the final he beat Al Marshall driving Dale Creasy's Mustang. Another win came in early April at Seattle's Northwest Open. He qualified first, set both ends of the track record, and went on to beat Kenney Goodell in the final. On April 21, McCulloch was at Irwindale for the Coca-Cola F/C Championships. It was a 32 car field and Ed set low ET in round two with a 6.56. In the third round his 6.81-211 lost to Danny Ongais' 6.73-218 in the "Vel's Parnelli Jones" Cuda. Seattle held its first F/C event in April, and Ed set low ET and top speed at 6.52-218 but in the final he was a little slow off the line and his 6.56-218 lost to Gordie Bonin's 6.58-217. As noted, at OCIR's Constructor's Championships, Ed was the only F/C to qualify in a field of dragsters. His 6.72 qualified #23 in the 32 car show. He lost to John Stewart in the first round.

Notes: Won three straight weekends at Lions and set a track record at 6.63. This car didn't get the recognition it deserved, beating a lot of the "name" drivers at the time. Stan ran at Irwindale's New Year's Day FC Festival to start the season. He qualified #6 in the sixteen car show with a 7.28. In the first round, he beat Mert Littlefield with a 7.54-189.06. In round two, he got past a motor blowing Ron O'Donnell and in the semifinals, he beat Gene Conway but blew his engine doing it and was unable to make the final.

Notes: Also 6.13 OCIR, 6.19-238.72 at Gainesville 77. Upset Don Prudhomme to win the 1977 World Finals at Ontario, Ca. | This was Bonin's best season since he started driving Funny Cars. It started at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals where he qualified #12 with a 6.37. He made it into the semifinals before losing to Raymond Beadle's 6.41 in the "Blue Max" with a quicker 6.40. He also made it into the semifinals at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet where he lost to Eddie Pauling's Low ET of the race 6.03. Bonin had been running well, hitting a 6.10 in his first round win. He dominated the next event, the Gatornationals, where he qualified first with a 6.26-238.72 (Top Speed). He beat Dodger Glenn in the first round and then set Low ET in round two with a 6.19-236 over Gary Burgin. In the semifinals, he dispatched Beadle with a 6.64-236. In the final he raced veteran Roger Lindamood. Bonin took the win. Gordie won the NHRA Division Six race at Mission Raceway. He was runner-up at the third Division Six race at Seattle. He set Low ET at 6.22 before running 6.57-219.51 in the final only to lose to Mike Miller's 6.37-231. In June he was at National Trail for the NHRA Springnationals. Bonin qualified #9 and upset low qualifier Gary Burgin in the first round. He lasted until the semifinals before losing to Don Prudhomme. Up in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals on August 7, Gordie qualified #5 in the eight car field with a 6.36-229.59. Unfortunately, that set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Prudhomme. Don ran 6.21-234 to beat Bonin's 6.29-227. A week later (Aug. 13), he was at Firebird Raceway for the Night Fire 500 race. All ten cars there made two runs with the two lowest ETs meeting in the final. Gordon didn't make the final but he did win his two races. A 7.21-215.74 beat Beadle in his first race while he shut off when Twig Zeigler fouled against him in his second race. The NHRA Division Six final was held at Portland International on Aug 19 and Gordon set low ET and top speed on a first round single with a 6.20-236.22. He got into the final only to have Beadle gate him off the line and his 6.33-225.56 lost to Raymond's 6.34-227. A track record of 230.76 was set at Spokane for the AHRA World Finals where he ran that speed while qualifying first with a 6.34. He failed to reach the finals however. At Indy for the NHRA U.S. Nationals, he qualified #3 with a 6.10-240. An off-pace 6.62-224.43 lost to Bob Pickett's 6.36-216 in the first round. Only fifteen cars showed up at Seattle for the NHRA Fallnationals so qualifying wasn't a problem. Still, Bonin ran 6.28-234.98 (top speed) to qualify #5 for the show. A 6.42-222.77 advanced over Bob Papirnick in the first round but in round two his 6.40-230.76 lost to Tripp Shumake's 6.28-223.

A first round 5.75-250.69 beat Oswald but while running Pulde in the second round he lost a blower and the race. The same thing happened at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro Am Championships. There Ed qualified first with a 5.73 (Low ET) at 254 but against Scott Kalitta in the first round he lost another blower. The next stop on the NHRA trail was Atlanta for the Southern Nationals on April 21. Once again Ed qualified well with his 5.79-254.38 taking the #2 spot. Oswald got crossed up in the first round against him and McCulloch's 5.82-255.68 advanced.

Notes: Photo from Milan, MI 1985. | After a great season in '84, Jim returned to the Funny Car wars in '85 hoping for more. He started the season by qualifying #12 with a 5.94-249.44 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. In the first round, he slowed to an off pace 6.25 that lost to Kenny Bernstein's 5.80. At Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals, he qualified #13 with a 6.23 and lated until the second round where he smoked the tires and lost to Mark Oswald. He then went to Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. A 5.89-244.69 qualified #14 and in the first round he had problems and shut off to a 14.60-56.13 that lost to Dale Pulde's 5.87-243. Jim was having a tough time getting past the first round and it continued at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships where he lost to Jody Smart in the first frame. On a good note, he was qualifying for all these shows, a hard thing to do. He almost didn't make the field at the NHRA Southern Nationals where his 6.02-248.89 qualified #15. He lost to Don Prudhomme in the first round. He made up for those early losses at the next NHRA event, the Cajun Nationals at Baton Rouge on May 26. There he qualified #13 with a 5.98-246.44. He beat Tim Grose in the first round and in round two, Prudhomme broke on his burnout, advancing Jim into the semifinals. In his semifinal race, a 5.93-245 beat Ron Correnti putting him in the final against Bernstein. Head would have rather raced for the win than take a solo trip, but Bernstein broke on the line and Jim soloed with a 5.93-248.48 for the victory. Things reverted bad to "normal" at the next few races. His next event was at Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. He qualified on the "bump" spot of the sixteen car show with a 5.98 but he lost to Pulde in the first round. At the NHRA Springnationals, he qualified #11 with a 5.95-234.13 but lost to Ed McCulloch in the first round. The pattern continued at the NHRA Grandnationals where he qualified #9 with a 5.83-251.53 and lost early.

Notes: Low qualifier at Sonoma 1993 (setting a new track record). | Mineo, 61, and four others, including three members of his family, died in September 2006 as the result of a high-speed boating accident on a Texas lake. News accounts reported Mineo's craft collided with another boat during a 100-mph poker run. -- RT | Photo from Ennis 93. -- RO | Mineo started the '93 season at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. Unfortunately, his best of 5.88-187.57 was only good enough for the second alternate spot. At the NHRA Motorcraft Nationals in Arizona, he qualified #14 with a 5.55-253.95. He beat Dale Pulde in the first round with an off-pace 6.14-163.01. He broke in round two, giving Jim Epler a free ride into the semifinals. Gordon qualified #6 at Houston for the NHRA Supernationals with a 5.20-257.06. A troubled 6.14-166.29 beat an equally troubled Gary Densham at 7.40-104 in round one, but in round two he lost a motor against Brent Fanning and the resulting fire destroyed the Firebird body. He was OK. He had a new body installed in time for the NHRA Gatornationals. A 5.28-282.04 qualified #7. In the first round, Paul Smith fouled against him and Mineo advanced with a 5.68-222.99. He lost to Freddie Neely in round two.

Notes: Toured England this year, too. At Pomona,Beadle qualified #3 with a 6.06-243.90. He went into a wheelstand in the first round and shut off giving Ron Colson the win in the "Hawaiian." Baton Rouge hosted the NHRA Division Four Opener on March 9 and the "Blue Max" ran low ET and top speed in the final with a 6.24-233.76 to take the win over Billy Meyer's close 6.27-230. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #8 and in the first round he beat Tom McEwen with a 5.99-238.09. In the second round, a 6.06-227.27 beat Tom Hoover's 6.12-233. In the semifinals, a 6.11-207.85 beat Tom Ridings' 6.46-180 in Joe Pisano's car. This put him in the final against Don Prudhomme who had just run 5.93 in the other semifinal race. Beadle tried hard in the final, but his 6.17-231.95 was only good enough for the runner-up spot to the "Snake's" 5.98-238. He went to Darlington the following week (March 23) and cleaned up. The only thing he didn't get was the pole. He qualified #2 with a 6.42 in the eight car field. A first round 6.28 beat a tire smoking Burgin and in the semifinals, a 6.29 beat John Force. In the final, he met Dale Pulde. Raymond capped off the weekend by running Low ET and top speed with a 6.06-237.46 to win the event. He won the second NHRA Division Four race at Green Valley on March 30.
