Notes: In 1968 this car was the No. 1 Qualifier in Super Eliminator (no Funny Car Eliminator in '68) at the NHRA World Finals in Tulsa. Ran S/XS, 7.58, a tenth under the record. Ran 7.79 at Omaha. | Guzman and Ward didn't venture out very far from home but when they did, they were tough to beat. They won the OCIR Nitro Championships on July 6 over a sixteen car field. Art had qualified #5 with an 8.06-183.28. A first round 7.89-187.10 beat the "Funny Bunch." In round two, an 8.08-185.94 took out Wendell Shipman and in the semifinal, an easy 8.32-185.94 advanced when Steve Bovan broke in Nelson Carter's Charger. In the final, he faced Dee Keaton's Cougar and won with an 8.10-188.28 beating Keaton's 8.48-151. On Oct 5 they were at OCIR again. A first round 8.12-187.50 beat Rich Siroonian's early shut off run. In the second round they lost a transmission and gave Dave Beebe a solo pass. As mentioned above, at the World Finals he was the #1 qualifier in Super Eliminator but he fouled in the first round.

Notes: Started year in the Trans Am, which had best times of 5.374 at 276.49. Best times for the Thunderbird body were 5.369 at 266.74. Keeping only one entry for this team in 1989 with combined times. Art started his '89 season by qualifying his Firebird #15 at Pomona with a 5.51-266.27 for the Winternationals. A first round 5.54-260.94 beat Scott Kalitta's 5.78-218 but he lost to Jim White in the second round. At the second NHRA event of the season, the Supernationals a 5.37 qualified #8 and this time he made it into the semifinals, after getting around Kenny Bernstein who broke a rear end in round two, where he ran Scott Kalitta but smoked the tires and lost. He qualified #7 with a 5.40 at the Gatornationals on March 19. Once again he made it into the semifinals after stopping Mark Oswald in the second round with a 5.45-270. In the semifinal, Art broke on the line against Ed McCulloch. He was in Atlanta for the Southern Nationals where he qualified #2 with a 5.39-268.97 but he lost to John Force in the first round.

Notes: Runner up to Don Prudhomme at the Toys for Tots race at Irwindale on December 12, 1970. Ran 7.42-175 at OCIR on 4-18-70. He started the season at Irwindale for the New Year's Day race but there he lost in the first round to Clyde Morgan's Javelin at 8.05 to Gene's off-pace 8.25. At the first OCIR All-Pro race on Jan 4, he beat Morgan in the first round and a 7.50-195.22 in the semis beat Arnie Behling's quicker (low et) 7.43-172.08 in Don Schumacher's old car. In the final, Charlie Allen lost a trans and an easy 7.76-187.89 gave him his first win of '70. Another win came at the second OCIR All-Pro event on Jan 18 when Dick Bourgeois fouled against him in the first round and Dave Beebe lost a trans against him in the semifinal. In the final, Conway ran an 8.58 to win over Tommy Grove who lost a trans on the line. At an eight car show at Lions on Feb. 14, Gene broke against Jim Liberman in the first round. The following day (Feb 15) at Irwindale he had more bad luck when he crossed the centerline in the first round and was disqualified. He had qualified third with a 7.68. At the third OCIR All-Pro on Feb 22, a first round win foretold the final. Gene's 7.33-200.89 beat Jake Johnston's quicker 7.28-181.08 in the Blue Max. In the semis, a best-ever (to that point) of 7.27-201.79 beat Don Prudhomme's 7.50-194.38. In the final, he met Johnston again who had gotten back in with the break rule. Gene's quicker 7.35-201.34 lost to Jake's 7.37-189.47. OCIR held another eight car race on March 14 and Gene advanced to the semifinal before fouling against Warren Gunter's VW. At the Final OCIR All-Pro event on March 28, Gene lost a rear-end in the first round. Back at Irwindale on April 4 for an eight car event, a first round 7.86-172.08 advanced him into the semis where Mike Snively's 7.81-192.30 beat his 7.92-186.32. He then went to OCIR and won the Corvette FC Championships. He beat Marv Eldridge in the final with a 7.54 (low ET) at 182.55. Another runner-up finish and another broken rear end came on April 18 at OCIR. A first round 7.35-197.36 beat Mike Van Sant's 7.41-198.23 in the Invader. A semifinal 7.42-175.43 beat Ray Alley's 7.44-191.08 but Dave Beebe won in the final where Conway broke. OCIR held its Big Four Championships on May 2. A 32-car field saw Gene run 7.95-141 and 7.86-179.28 over Jack Chrisman's close 7.88-185.56 and an 8.13-153 before breaking in the semis against Manual Herrera. On May 30 at the OCIR FC 500, Conway fouled away a 7.42-198.23 against Snively in the first round. He lost again in the first round on June 20 at OCIR's March of Dimes event. Arnie Behling's low et blast of 7.25-199.50 beat his 7.74-195.65. Snively must have had a hEx on Gene because on July 3 for the OCIR Nitro Championships Conway again fouled against him in the first round. The next day at Irwindale for the fourth of July Championships, he went all the way to the finals before losing to Arnie Behling. On July 11 at the AHRA All-American at Lions, Gene got out of shape (8.33) in the first round and lost to Roger Wolford (7.54-188.28). A win came at a sixteen car field at Irwindale on July 17. He qualified first with a 7.67-190.26 (top speed) and beat Dave Beebe in the final with low et at 7.63. He then won the PDA Championships at OCIR on July 25, beating Ray Alley in the final with a 7.65-181.81. On Aug 1 at Irwindale for the Gold Cup Championships, he ran a 7.42-188.28 in the first round and a 7.73-177.51 in the second before his car caught fire in the semis. Gene was OK. Conway fixed the car and installed a Crowerglide clutch set up with a Lenco two-speed transmission. With this set up, he showed up at OCIR on Aug 15 for their Anniversary Race. A first round 7.27-188.28 beat Leroy Hales' 7.84-184. In the second round, a 7.33-194.80 beat Bob McFarland's 7.97-176 and in the semifinal, a 7.70-200 beat Ed Lenarth's 7.84-177. In the final, Gene ran his best ever speed and et of 7.18-206.89 over Mike Snively's 7.30-203. On Aug 29 back at OCIR for an eight car show, Gene ran a first round 7.03-204.68 and a semifinal 7.10-202.70 lost to Snively's 7.12-205.47. A runner-up finish on Sept 12 at Irwindale followed. He ran 7.44-194.80 and 7.42-197.80 to reach the finals before losing to Snively's low et and top speed of the meet 7.26-204.54 to Gene's 7.45-177.51. On Sept 26 at Lions for the Anniversary Race, Ed Lenarth's 7.42-181.81 beat his 7.61-132.74 in the first round. At the OCIR East-West Championships on Oct 10, Gene's 7.19-198.67 beat Snively's 7.30-205.01 in the West portion of the race but for the overall title he lost to Don Schumacher. Conway had run a best of 7.09-201.34 at the race. Gene (7.23-184.80) lost to Dave Beebe (7.09-198.23) in the first round at the next event on Oct 24 at Lions, followed by a runner-up finish to John Collins in John Bateman's Maverick at the Pumpkin Day Open at Irwindale. He had qualified fifth with a 7.30 and ran a first round 7.28-208.32 over Larry Arnold. A semifinal 7.37-205.46 beat Charlie Therwhanger but Collins' 7.23-200.88 beat his 7.44-188.24 in the final. At Irwindale for a 32 car show on Nov 14, Gene smoked the tires and lost to Arnold's 7.09-208.80 (top speed) in the second round. Gene qualified fifth on Nov 21 at Lions for an eight car show. He ran 7.28-185.18 to beat a wheelstanding Randy Walls in the first round before smoking the tires to a losing 15.50-58 in the semis against Bob Pickett who won with an 8.49-131. Gene failed to qualify for Irwindale's Toys for tots race. He had a streak of luck when number eight qualifier Larry Arnold broke and Conway got into the show. He almost went all the way, beating Ron O'Donnell in the "Fighting Irish" Camaro in the first round with a 7.29-196.05 and then beating Jim Liberman in the ailing "Chi-Town Hustler" in the semifinals with a 7.37-200.44. In the final, he faced Don Prudhomme. Don had been running in the sixes on every run and in the final it was no different as the "Snake's" 6.92-192 beat Conway who crossed the centerline. - Ron Howard | Formerly listed at 6.925-218.97. Assuming that was run in 1971.

Notes: Also 226.70 at Seattle International Raceway Seafair FC Championships 8-74. | Ran 6.70 at Pomona, 6.62 at Columbus, 6.62 at Englishtown, 6.47 at Indy, at 6.51 Ontario. Ed qualified #7 with a 6.51-218.97 at the NHRA Winternationals. A first round 6.62-220.58 beat Sush Matsubara but a second round 6.63-203.61 lost to Frank Hall's 6.39-217. He got a big win at Bakersfield on March 3 when final round opponent Twig Zeigler broke. Still, Ed hustled to a 6.44-223.32 for the win. He had earlier set top speed at 226.70. He found himself in another final on March 17 at Fremont for the AHRA Northern Nationals. Ed had set low et in the semifinals with a 6.38 over Gene Snow. He fell off to a 6.91-186 in the final that lost to Tom McEwen's strong 6.41-212. He was runner-up again on April 6 at the OCIR AHRA Grand American. Ed had run 6.62-221.67 over Danny Ongais'6.68-220, 6.70-221.67 over Don Prudhomme, and a 6.59-223.88 solo when Bob Pickett broke on the line in the semifinal. In the final he lost to Jim Dunn's 6.66-220. McCulloch always ran well at Seattle and in May for the fifth annual Northwest Open, it was no exception. He qualified #5 in the eight-car show meaning he had to run low qualifier Prudhomme in the first round. Ed won running a 6.47-213.27 while Don crossed the centerline and was disqualified. In the semifinal, he set low et with a 6.37-225 over Ken Goodell's 6.43-218. Somehow Prudhomme had gotten reinstated and had made it to the final to face Ed again. This time, McCulloch got out of shape (15.27) and had to settle for runner-up again. A 6.45 qualified #4 at the NHRA Springnationals in June, but a sleepy first round 6.84 lost to Paul Smith's 7.00. He finished runner-up to Gene Snow at the AHRA Drag Nationals at Kansas City in July when he fouled away a 6.51 in the final. Ed had qualified #5 in the field with a 6.60-211.76 and had beaten low qualifier Shirl Greer in the second round with a 6.53-222.77 over Shirl's quicker 6.50. In the semifinals, a 6.57 dropped Dale Creasy. He was at Englishtown on July 14 for the NHRA Summernationals. A 6.37 qualified #3. In the first round, the car went into a wheelstand and lost to eventual winner Al Segrini's 6.60-197. On July 25 he was at Maple Grove for their All-American Series race. Ed set low et in the second round with a 6.40-222.22 over Jim Liberman. In the semifinals, he broke a brake caliper and was unable to stage against Kosty Ivanof. Back to Seattle in August, he set low et at 6.27 and went on to win the Seafair 64 car show.

Notes: On this car's very first run, we set a new track record at Detroit for ET and MPH. We raced at 14 events in 1971 and set track records at 11 of the 14 events. Later that year, I had the worst funny car fire in the history of drag racing to that point at Lebanon Valley, NY. I was burned over 60 percent of my body. I needed skin grafts, etc. I was laid up for a year. - Dwane Ong, Racin & Rockin with Draglist.com radio show, 6-08-15

Notes: Tommy Grove's "Going Thing" 1969 Ford Mach I Mustang was one of the best Ford-powered funny cars of all time. Grove was loyal to the 427 SOHC engine and Ford. Logghe Stamping Company built the chassis and Paul Shedlik built and painted the Mach I Mustang body. Larry Shinoda designed the paint scheme. Master tin man Al Bergler did the aluminum work. Grove debuted the car in late 1968 and raced it through 1970. Tommy ran 7.28 at 203 in 1969 to become one of the first 200 MPH funny cars. Grove achieved notoriety for cracking 200 mph while at the same time rumored to be Experimenting with an Exotic fuel (hydrazine?) | Grove had a bad year in '69. At least in comparison to '68 and '70. He had lots of transmission problems and was also trying to sort out the Boss 429 as well as running the proven SOHC. He failed to qualify at both the Irwindale New Year's Day Race and the second OCIR All-Pro race on Feb 9 where an 8.08 was only good for the eighth alternate. He also failed to qualify at Bakersfield for the March Meet. Grove was the Killer Car on the match race trail in '68 and was feared by everyone who matched against him, but '69 was not the same. On March 30, he was at Aquasco for a best of three match against Lew Arrington. He won the first race with a shut off 8.61-168.22 when Lew got out of shape but in the second race while coming to the line, it looked like a blower let go but it was actually his motor self-destructing. Lew soloed in the "Brutus" to two more wins for the match race win. He ran Fred Goeske at Capitol on April 12 and lost two straight even though he set top speed at 195. He ran better at Aquasco on May 4 for their fourth annual FC Invitational. A first round 7.91-191.08 beat Tom McEwen's off-pace 8.23 and another 7.91-191.88 in the semis advanced over Frank Oglesby in the Don Nicholson Cougar. In the final, Tom fouled against Jim Liberman's 7.86-189. On May 27, Aquasco held another eight-car FC race. Grove's 8.10-188.66 in the first round lost to Leonard Hughes' 7.83-197. Liberman met Grove at York US 30 on June 7 for another match race and JJ beat Grove three straight races. On June 21, Grove was at Lakeland for the Memphis FC Championships. He fouled against Dick Harrell in the first round and shut down to an 8.81-165. He had some more bad luck the next day at Kingston when he lost a best of three match to Paula Murphy. On July 3, Edgewater held an eight car FC show. Unfortunately, Charlie Allen strapped a 7.37 low et of the meet run on Tom in the first round, putting the Mustang on the trailer. He also lost in the first round at Capitol's King of King's FC event on July 16. This time, Oglesby's 7.98-178 beat Tom's ailing 8.71-187.88. He ran much better at the Cars Magazine Meet on July 20 where he set a 7.42 track record at 201 in the first round while beating Al Graeber. In round two a 7.74-197.36 beat Ron Rivero's out-of-shape pass. But then the rain came and the rest of the race was to be run on Sunday. Grove had prior commitments and could not run Sunday. Liberman had a rematch with Grove at Capitol on Sept 20 and once again JJ prevailed although the times were close. Jim ran a best of 7.28-199.10 to Grove's 7.29-203. The following day (Sept 21) he ran at the third annual New England FC Championships where he set a 7.30 Epping track record in the first round while losing to Roger Lindamood's 7.33-198. Tom's speed was 199.50. An interesting thing happened to Grove on Oct 11 when he showed up to run at the OCIR FC Invitational. He was informed that his competition license had Expired back in Jan and he was unable to run. After straightening out the driver's license issue, he showed up at Irwindale on Oct 18 for the East/West Championships but lost to Liberman's 7.76-195 in the first round with an out-of-shape 8.23. All cars had run the first round with the losers going into a bracket two while the winners ran bracket one. So Tom then met Rich Siroonian in bracket two but his 8.02-184.80 lost to Rich's 7.53-199. He competed at Sears Point on Nov 2 but lost a blower early in the race. - Ron Howard

Notes: Russell "James" Liberman topped the 60sFunnyCars.com poll as the number one funny car racer of the 1960s. Not much more can be said about Russell Liberman, the man. Liberman ranked number 17 on the list of top NHRA drivers, had two NHRA national events victories (one of those as an owner), and an infamous legacy rivaling that of a rock star. Russell began his funny car career in such cars as the "Hercules," the "Gypsy" Corvette, and the "Brutus" GTO. Russell's stardom skyrocketed when he built the first "Jungle Jim" Chevy II. By 1969, "Jungle Jim's" long, smoking burnouts (some preceded by a fire burnout), high-speed backups, and long, twisting wheelstands had cemented his place as a popular racer with the fans. The showmanship had previously been backed up with average finishes, but these stopped in 1969. Russell had two Chevrolet-powered Novas in 1969 with Clare Sanders in the second car. The two started the year off with a bang with Sanders beating Jungle at Pomona for the Winternationals title. Liberman then went on the match race circuit to win countless races, running bests of 7.28, 198.64. By the end of 1969, Jungle had one of the most successful years in history for a Chevy powered funny car. Liberman knew that the day of the successful Chevy powered engine in AA/FC was limited. By the end of the next year, "Jungle" had switched to a Hemi. (Info from Dennis Doubleday). | JJ started his season by qualifying #13 at the Irwindale New Year's Day race and a first round 7.67-191.08 beat Fred Goeske's 7.88-184. In the second round, his Nova came up ailing against Don Schumacher who unloaded a 7.52-198 to put Jim on the trailer. He faced off against Charlie Allen for a match race on Jan 12 at Irwindale and won his first race with an 8.12-191.08 over Allen's wheelstanding Dart. Allen came back with a 7.74-182 to win the second race over Jim who broke a rocker arm. JJ won the deciding match with an 8.23-190.26 when Charlie pulled another wheelie and lost. At the AHRA Winternats, Jim beat Tony Wahlay and Allen before meeting Clare Sanders in his second car in the semi's. He beat a motor blowing Clare but since they were taking turns driving each of the cars he let Sanders drive in the final. He qualified #7 with a 7.74-186.32 on Feb 9 at the second OCIR All-Pro race. He lost to Don Schumacher in the first round. JJ raced at an eight-car show at Lion's on Feb 22 and ran a first round 7.72-184.42 over Steve Bovan. He lost to Rich Siroonian's 7.71 in the semi's with a 7.82. Another match race was run this time against Sid Foster in the Super Cuda at Cecil County in March. JJ won the first race with a 7.83-171.11 beat Sid's 8.10-183 and Jim wrapped it up in the second race with a 7.60-187.10 to beat Foster's 8.07-169 and win the match. On April 6, he ran Schumacher at Connecticut and beat him three straight setting a 7.62 track record as well. He then took on Ron Rivero on April 13 at Atco where he won his first race with an out of shape 8.34-172.41. Ron won the second race with an 8.06-187 when JJ shut down early, and he went on to win the match with a 7.81-196 when Liberman crossed the centerline in the last race. He got back into his winning ways on April 19 at Blaney when he took on Schumacher. JJ won the first race, but Don won the second race with an 8.00-191 beating JJ's 8.07-182. Both were up for the final, but Jim had a good leave and won the match with an 8.00-182 that beat Schumacher who set 7.94-190 track records in losing. Another match race win came the next day on April 20 at Aquasco where he beat Dick Loehr two straight with a best of 7.89. He lost a match race on May 3 at York US 30 when Pat Foster beat him three straight. Jim got out of shape on his first race and lost to Pat's 8.11-175. In the second race, Jim fouled away a new track record of 7.66 at 191.48 against the Mustang's 7.82-189.86. In the last race, Foster reset the track record with a 7.63-188.28 over Jim's 7.71. He traveled to Aquasco the next day (May 4) for an eight-car show, where a first round 7.84-187.88 beat Malcolm Durham's 8.13-180. In the semifinal, he set low et with a 7.81-189.06 over Don Schumacher's 7.98-191. He faced Tommy Grove in the final but Grove fouled and Jim ran 7.86-189.06 for the win. On May 14 he met Dick Loehr at Martin, Mich for a match race. Jim won his first race with a 7.80-188.28 when Loehr fouled (7.86-189.06). Dick came back to win the next two races and the match with a best of 7.72 to JJ's best of 7.76-189.86. Way up north, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, he had a match race against Pat Minick. The Chi-Town Hustler was running strong beating Liberman in all three races with track records of 7.45-196. He went back to Aquasco for another eight-car show on May 27, and again he won, beating a fouling Durham in the final. Back as US 131 in Martin, Mich on May 29, for a UDRA race. Dick Harrell ran a 7.84-192 to just nip JJ's 7.85-184.04 in the first round. Early in June, Larry Arnold in the Super Cuda met JJ at Suffolk for a best of three match. Jim ran 7.72-189.86 over Arnold's 8.16-179 in the first race, a 7.54-194.80 over Arnold's 7.66-190.26 in the second race and a 7.52-193.54 to make it three straight over Larry's 7.66-191. Another match race followed on June 7 at York US 30 against Grove's Mustang. Once again JJ won three straight with times of 7.61-191.70, 7.65 and a 7.70. The following day (June 8) he ran the New England FC Championships at Epping. A first round 7.69-187.90 beat Al Hanna and a 7.61-190.22 beat Chevy foe Bruce Larson in round two. In the semi's, JJ needed only a 7.95 to beat Roger Lindamood's ailing Charger at 11.37. In the final a 7.73-189 beat Paul Stefansky's 8.18 for the win. At an eight-car show at New York, he set low et at 7.49-193.54 while beating Frank Oglesby, but while lining up for his semifinal race the Chevy lost oil pressure and Jim shut off. Aquasco held their President's Gold Cup Championships on June 22. JJ ran a first round 7.86-183.66 over George Reese and then set a short-lived 7.74 track record at 190.66 over Lew Arrington in the semi's. In the final, Schumacher reset the track record with a 7.68-195 run that beat JJ's 7.75-194.38. Another runner-up finish followed on July 3 at an eight-car show at Edgewater. This time, Pat Minick's 7.57-191 beat JJ's 7.66-187.88 in the final. The next day (July 4) he was in Suffolk for an eight-car show where a first round 7.59-187.88 beat Ron Rivero. In the semi's, Arrington's 7.55-193 beat his 7.62-191.08. At Suffolk on July 13, JJ ran a match against Mel Perry. Jim ran a 7.58-191.88 to beat Mel who had his roof blow off in the first round. Della Woods was the backup car and she ran the next two races. Della's 7.92-181 lost to JJ's 7.55-193.12 in race two and a final identical time run by JJ beat Della's 7.98-180 in the third race. Jim set low et at 7.50-177.86 while beating Tom McEwen in the first round at Capitol's King of Kings race on July 16. Roy Gay's 7.94-178 beat him in the second round when the Nova's front tires wouldn't stay on the ground, slowing him to an 8.24-192. On Aug 2, two of the top Chevies met at York US 30 for a match race. It was JJ against Larson and in the first race, a 7.56-191 by JJ beat Larson's 7.65-189. JJ made it two straight with another 7.56 that beat Larson, who got out of shape. On Aug 10 he raced at Atco for the New Jersey State Championships but a broken rear stopped him in the first round. He then went to an eight car show at Detroit Dragway. All cars there made three runs with the winner being the one with the most wins. Lindamood's 8.32-193 beat Jim's 8.57-186 in the first round but JJ came back to win his next two races with a 7.75-187 over Connie Kalitta's 7.76-190 and an 8.00-169 over Arnie Beswick's 8.50-158. - Ron Howard
