Notes: Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. | Finished #3 in NHRA points in '85. - Mark York | Number one qualifier at ADRA Spokane 8/86 at 5.747-257.14. | Pulde always ran well at Pomona and at the '86 NHRA Winternationals he continued to do so. He qualified #12 with a 5.84-250.69 and improved to a 5.69-250.00 in the first round while beating Ed McCulloch's 5.82-240. A 5.77-244.56 advanced into the semifinals when Johnny West, driving the "Hawaiian" for the first time, crossed the centerline. In the semifinals, Dale smoked the tires and shut off to a 13.09-61.09 loss to John Force. At the NHRA Gatornationals, a 5.79-255.97 qualified #4. Rain came and postponed the race from March 16 to the 23rd, but Pulde was scheduled to run at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals and left Gainesville to run the IHRA event. He was probably happy that he did as he won the race. He qualified #2 and made his way to the final against Paul Smith who he beat with a 5.68-254.23 (low ET and top speed).

Notes: Won AHRA Winternationals 1972. | At the end of June through the July 4 weekend, ran nine races in 14 days! Set the track record at Beech Bend at 6.45-220.04 over the July 4 weekend. - Dale Pulde, 7/03/15 | Pulde started the season with a win at the AHRA Winternationals at Beeline but he had to beat the "killer car" of the day, not once but twice to get the victory. In the semifinals, Dale ran a 6.71 to beat Pat Foster's 6.72 in the bucks-up "Barry Setzer Vega." Leroy Goldstein won the other semifinal race but he broke and was unable to make the final. That meant that Dale would race Foster again for the title. Dale won that final with a 6.68 over Pat's 6.85. The MT Pinto was at the Lions Grand Premiere race and Dale beat Bill Leavitt's 7.11 in the first round with a 6.79-215.82 but he lost in round two. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, once again Pulde met Foster. It happened in the semifinals and they both smoked the tires with Dale's 7.57 beating the Vega's 7.78. In the final, he ran Ed McCulloch and the Pinto lost a motor giving Ed the victory. The team was at Lakeland on March 6 for the IHRA Winternationals. A 6.96 qualified #6 in the field. He beat Charlie Wilson in the first round with a 7.02, and in round two, he beat a crossed up Jim Liberman. In the semifinal, a 7.15 beat Preston Davis and he found himself in another final round. Unfortunately, in the final he crossed the centerline and Richard Tharp in the "Blue Max" got the win. At the AHRA Pro-Am race at West Palm Beach, Dale lost in the second round to McCulloch. He was at Rockingham on April 30 for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. It didn't go smoothly for the MT team as he lost two engines. The second engine let go while winning his second round race and he was unable to run against Foster in the semifinal.

Notes: Car had that really wild "shovel" nose on it, also ran it in '86. This car is the one Billy used 3 spark plugs per cylinder on until outlawed by NHRA. Photo from Milan, MI 1985. Billy started the '85 season by qualifying #15 at Pomona for the Winternationals with a 6.03-239.36. He lost to Dale Pulde in the first round. At Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals, Billy lasted until round two where Ed McCulloch's 5.91-254 beat his 5.97-243. A best of 5.93-229.00 failed to qualify at the Gatornationals but he rebounded with a runner-up finish at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro Am Championships. In the semifinal, he stopped Kenny Bernstein's 5.95-243 with a 5.88-250. In the final, he faced Pulde and they both ran 5.80's (Billy's at Top Speed of the meet,261.62), but Dale got the win. He lost early in Atlanta for NHRA's Southern Nationals after qualifying #8 with a 5.93-208.04. Meyer lost early at the next NHRA race as well, the Cajun Nationals at Baton Rouge. He qualified #3 with a 5.84-247.38 but in the first round he crossed the centerline while racing Ron Correnti. Things weren't much better at Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals where he lost to Don Prudhomme in round two. Billy made another final round appearance at the NHRA Springnationals in June. He qualified #6 with a 5.83-236.22 and beat Jim Head in the first round. A second round 5.81-242 beat a tire smoking John Force and in the semi finals, a 5.82 beat John Collins' 5.94. In the final, Bernstein's 5.81-251 gave Meyer a runner-up finish. Only 15 cars showed up for the NHRA Grandnationals in Canada but Billy still ran hard in qualifying running a 5.70-256.70 for the #2 spot.

Notes: Is photo from '75 or '76? -- JB | Tom ran really well in his Duster in '75 especially on the AHRA Grand American Series. It didn't start so well when he failed to qualify at Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals, but at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals he ran 6.32 to qualify #5. He beat Ed McCulloch in the first round with a 6.61-206.89 over Ed's 6.72-197. He lost to Bill Leavitt in the second round. Tom went to OCIR for the AHRA Grand American in March. He ran 6.57 (Low ET) to qualify first. In the first round a 6.62-216.86 beat Roger Garten in the "Warhorse" Mustang. In the semifinals, he beat Neil Leffler with a 6.58-210.77. In the final he faced Jake Johnston in the "Pisano & Matsubara" car. It was a close race but Tom's 6.77-213.27 got the win over Jake's 6.78-220. 2nd alternate at Ontario 10/12/75 at 6.406-230.76.

Notes: Photo from Columbus 1993. Ran this 5.11 at Winternats -- beating John Force -- except he hit the top end timing cones, negating the time & losing the race. | Whit qualified #12 with a 5.26-285.08 at the NHRA Winternationals, and as mentioned above, defeated Force with a career best 5.11 but was disqualified for crossing the centerline while hitting the cones. At the second NHRA race of the season, the Arizona Nationals, Whit qualified #8 with a 5.26-276.83. He lost to Kenji Okazaki's 5.30-268 in the first round when he lost a motor and the car caught fire. Bazemore brought the car to a stop and he was OK. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, only 17 cars showed so qualifying was relatively easy. Whit qualified on the "bump" with a 9.97-81.54. Unfortunately, that meant that he had to run low qualifier John Force in round one. Whit ran a strong 5.24-261.32 but lost to Force's 5.18-282. Gainesville was the fourth stop on the NHRA schedule and Whit qualified #12 with a 5.40-248.20. He beat Del Worsham in the first round with a 5.26-262.31. In round two, an off pace 5.50-209.10 lost to Gary Bolger's 5.32-268. The non-points race, the NHRA Winston Invitational, was Bazemore's next stop. He ran a motor-blowing 5.53-198.23 to qualify last in the eight car field, but the resulting fire from the blown engine did too much damage to the car and he was unable to run in eliminations. The car was repaired and ready for Atlanta and the NHRA Southern Nationals in late April. A 5.24-280.28 qualified #8. In the first round, the motor let go while beating Jim Epler with a 5.33-236.71 and he was unable to return for round two. Mid-May found the Fast Orange team at Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals where they qualified #10 with a 5.51-272.14. Whit stepped it up to a 5.40-274.22 to beat Cruz Pedregon's 5.40-276 in the first round. A second round 5.43-269.62 lost to Wyatt Radke's 5.35-281. The following week (May 23), the NHRA tour was at Englishtown for the Mopar Parts Nationals. Whit ran 5.21-280.61 to qualify #7. In the first round the car broke.

Notes: "Fast Eddie" Schartman was one of the racers chosen to receive one of the Logghe-built Comet Cyclones from Ford Motor Company. Schartman had worked his way up the racing ranks before getting into funny car racing. In 1966, he was one of the top funny car racers with the advanced machines. In 1967, he was already on his third paint job when he received the Air Lift sponsorship. The Air Lift Rattler featured the updated Logghe chassis and kept on winning. With Amos Satterlee tuning, Schartman won the Manufacturer's Funny Car Championship at Orange County with runs of 8.17-184.08, 7.85-185.18 (Low ET), and 7.87-185.56. - BS | 427 SOHC, C-6 auto combo. | Ran 8.65-164 at AHRA Winters on January 29. Eddie first ran a blower late in the year at Fremont's Third Annual Exhibition Car Championships. He won the race beating Terry Hedrick's Corvair in the final. - Ron Howard

He had the car fixed and was at the NHRA Motorcraft Nationals in Arizona. A 5.24-282.48 qualified #6 and once again he met Wyatt in the first round. This time he had no problems and his 5.41-261.02 beat Wyatt's 5.48-246. Jim took it easy in round two when Gordon Mineo broke and in the semifinals he advanced with a 25.90-40.76 when his opposition, Al Hofmann was unable to show after destroying his car while winning his second round race. This moved Jim into the final against Cruz Pedregon. He was faced with a lot of boo's and jeers since he had not made any hard runs in the last two rounds and the crowd was against him for it. In his defense, he was running wounded and was just trying to keep the engine together and through luck made his was into the final. He lost to Pedregon in the final but it was not one of his better days as the crowd really got to him. Nothing was said but his wife wrote a letter to National Dragster explaining their side of the story. Things returned to normal at Houston for the NHRA Slick 50 Nationals. Epler qualified #3 with a career best (to this point) 5.12-281.77. He smoked the tires in the first round and shut off to a 8.55-91.95 that lost to Brent Fanning's 5.82-231. The team didn't run very well at the NHRA Gatornationals, qualifying on the "bump" with a 5.50-221.13 and losing to low qualifier Hofmann in round one. Things were even worse at Rockingham for the NHRA Winston Invitational. It was an eight car show and Jim ended up as the third alternate with a 5.61-254.59 best. Epler had no problems qualifying at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals. His 5.28-266.11 placed him #9 in the field. Eliminations were a different story as he lost to Whit Bazemore in round one. The sixth race of the season was the NHRA Mid-South Nationals at Memphis. A 5.56-275.31 qualified #12. The Daytona broke in the first round against Gordie Bonin. More problems kept him out of the show at Englishtown for the NHRA Mopar Parts Nationals. The best he could run in qualifying was a 9.09-95.90. At the NHRA Springnationals, he was driving the Cutlass bodied car.

Notes: Custom piece. Rear engine futuristic funny car. Car was based on AMT's anticipated entry into the world of small mass produced cars for the public. Basically a kit car was planned, but it never got off the ground, beyond the Piranha prototype. In essence, the car was a Catch 22 -- too radical to be deemed a funnycar, and too slow as a top fuel dragster. The car was ill handling. Astute match racers would rely on their water cooled entries to burn the car down, resulting in its loss. However, when all went well, no flopper, even the Nicholson Comet could touch it. Per Chris Martin, Walt Stevens went a confirmed 8.71, 187 at Irwindale. Also 182.64 per Drag News. Was the 8.295 Walt or Connie Swingle (who did run an 8.29 in October 1966).

Notes: Photo from IHRA Milan, MI 84. | The "Goose" had one of his best seasons in '84. It didn't start so well at the AHRA Winternationals where he qualified #8 in an eight car show with a 6.52 and lost to Mike Dunn's 6.28-230 in the first round with another 6.52-214. But at the next event, the Super Bowl of Drag Racing at Firebird Raceway, he finished runner up to Kenny Bernstein's 5.98-248 with a 6.07-236.84. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he lost to John Lombardo in the first round. He then ran a career best (to this point) of 5.83 at 247.25 to qualify #4 at the NHRA Gatornationals. Another 5.83-253.52 in the first round beat Bob Gottschalk but in the second round the Corvette broke, advancing Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max." He clicked at the next race, the IHRA Winternationals at Darlington, although he only ran a 5.98 to qualify #6. He eased past the first round but then picked up the pace with a 5.87-245 in the second round that beat Kenny Bernstein's 6.04-245. In the semifinals, a 5.89 beat Billy Meyer's 5.88. In the final, he ran his old teammate, Don Prudhomme, and the "Snake" had problems while Tom motored to a 5.91-248.61 for the victory. At the NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta, Tom qualified #5 with a 5.86-252.10. He beat Jim Head in the first round but broke on the line in the second round, advancing Bernstein. He ran well at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro Am Championships but failed to reached the finals.
