Notes: John started the season at the AHRA Winternationals at Tucson. He qualified #5 in the eight car show with a 6.94-197. That set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Gordie Bonin. He lost that race when his 6.77-216 fell to Bonin's 6.65-219. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified #10, but lost to eventual winner Billy Meyer in the first round. He barely made the show at the Gatornationals, qualifying #16 with a 6.14-241.28. In the first round the car went into a wheelstand and he shut off, losing to Dale Pulde.

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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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

Notes: After racing the Dodge Cordoba from late July or August 1976 to March or April 1977, Tommy reverted to a Dodge Dart body to finish the 1977 season. The Cordoba had turbulence problems due to its notchback rear window. Photo from Englishtown 1976. Tommy told young David Hapgood at the time that his 1977 best in this car was 6.19 at the time (and that he also had been credited with a bogus 5.94 at another track). 6.20 Ontario

Notes: Photo from Indy 1986. Drag Racing List has 5.845-250.69 times from Maple Grove national event. | Larson attempted to qualify at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals but his best of 6.31-168.53 failed to make the field. In March he faced off with Dominic Santucci for a best of three match race at Englishtown. Larson won two straight running times of 6.28-230.76 and 6.17-238.09. At Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals, his best of 6.28-225.79 failed to qualify. He competed at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals where he ran 6.22 to qualify #3 in the eight car field. He advanced past the first round with a 6.00 before losing in the semifinals. Bruce got into the field at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals. His 6.25-220.26 held the "bump spot" in the sixteen car show. He lost to Johnny West in the "Hawaiian" in the first round. He qualified #13 with a 6.02-237.21 at the NHRA Springnationals but he lost early. Maple Grove hosted the Super Stock Magazine Nationals and Larson was there, running a 6.03-233.76 to qualify #5 in the eight car field. Unfortunately, that set up a first round meeting with low qualifier (5.62) Kenny Bernstein. Larson smoked the tires and shut off to a 7.00-144.69 that lost to Kenny's 5.75-254. In late June he followed the NHRA tour to Canada for the Grandnationals. Only twelve cars showed for the sixteen car show so qualifying wasn't a problem. Bruce ran a 6.12-240.12 to qualify #11. But in the first round, he smoked the tires and shut off, losing to Billy Meyer's ailing 9.22-91. On July 2, Englishtown held its Funny Car Spectacular. Larson lost to West's 5.78-258 in the first round with a 6.31-184.04, but he got back in on the "break rule." So in round two he ran Roy Harris but Bruce had problems and shut off to a 9.10-86.04 that lost to Roy's 6.39-180. He was back at Englishtown on July 13 for the NHRA Summernationals where he ran a 5.99-243.11 to qualify on the "bubble." In the first round he lost to Tom Hoover. On August 3, he competed at the PHR Championships at Martin, Michigan. He qualified #8 with a 6.20 in the sixteen car show. He lost to Scott Kalitta in the first round. The following week (Aug 9), he was at the U.S. Funny Car Nationals where he ran a 6.19-236.22 to qualify #6 in the six car show. He lost early. At Indianapolis for the NHRA U.S. Nationals, his best of 6.07-237.59 was only good enough for the sixth alternate spot. He also attempted to make the show at Maple Grove for the NHRA Keystone Nationals but he had problems and failed to qualify with a 7.32-118.18 best. In the season long NHRA points chase he finished #19.

Notes: A dismal year, performance and sponsor wise. Ran 6.11-241.28 at NHRA Indy 9/80. | Gary stated the year by qualifying first at the AHRA Winternationals. He lasted until the semifinals where he lost to Don Prudhomme. He failed to qualify at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals and a best of 6.30 also failed to qualify at the Gatornationals. He did make the eight car field at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. There he qualified #6, but went up in smoke in the first round and lost to Raymond Beadle. Gary was at Maple Grove in April for its Spring All-Pro race. It was an eight car show and Burgin won his first round race over Bruce Larson with a 6.20-232.55 but fouled in the semifinals against Bob Seifert. He was back at Maple Grove in May for the Jungle Jim Memorial race. Six cars made two runs each with the two lowest ETs meeting in the final. Gary's first race saw Dale Pulde beat him with a 6.27-229 to his 6.43-229.00. In his second race, his 6.35-228.42 beat Rick Johnson in the "Custom Body" Mustang. Unfortunately, neither of his times was good enough to make the final round race.

Notes: Tripp started the '80 season by attempting to qualify at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He failed to make the field and his 6.23-242.58 was only good enough for the third alternate. He competed at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet but failed to reach the late rounds. A week later (March 16), he was at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. He qualified #2 with a 6.02-241.28. Unfortunately, his steering broke in the first round and he lost to Ron Colson in the "Hawaiian." He was at the NHRA Divisional race at Beeline but he shut off to a 9.34 in the first round and lost to Bob Pickett. On April 20, Shumake grabbed a big win at the IHRA Pro-Am Championships at Rockingham. He beat Dale Pulde in the final. Baton Rouge hosted the NHRA Cajun Nationals on April 27 and the eight car field was a tough one to qualify in. Tripp just made it qualifying on the "bump" with a 6.18. Non-qualifiers included Don Prudhomme, Raymond Beadle, and Pulde. In the first round, he beat Tom Hoover's 6.27 with a 6.25-234 but in the semifinals, he smoked the tires and shut off, giving eventual winner Billy Meyer an easy (?) 6.32-226 ride into the final. He lost to Ed McCulloch in the first round at the NHRA Springnationals after qualifying #6 with a 6.18-237.46. At Denver for the NHRA Mile High Nationals, he failed to qualify.

Notes: Photo from 1982 GVRC match race. | Gary started the '82 season at Tucson in Jan for the AHRA Winternationals. He qualified #2 behind Don Prudhomme but in the first round, he was upset by eventual winner Ed Moore with his 6.53-223.32 losing to Ed's 6.37-225. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he ran 6.10-237.46 to qualify #12. A 6.11-243.24 beat Prudhomme's 6.31-185 in the first round but in round two, Segrini left first and hung on to record a 6.30-233 victory over Gary's 6.29-227.27. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #6 with a 6.08-238.72. In the first round, he had problems and slowed to a 6.77-194.38 that lost to Kosty Ivanof's 6.32-229. After that, Burgin stopped at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals but he lost to John Pott in the first round. Atlanta held an eight car show early in April. Gary was there but he took a little nap in the first round and his 6.04 lost to Frank Hawley's 6.10 in the "Chi-Town Hustler." He was back at Atlanta on April 25 for the NHRA Southern Nationals. It was another eight car show and he ran 6.09-240.00 to qualify #7. In the first round he smoked the tires against Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max" and shut out to a 10.56 while Beadle advanced with a 5.88. He was at Rockingham on May 2 for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. Once again he lost in the first round, this time Segrini took him out. Gary made it past the first round at the next NHRA event, the Cajun Nationals at Baton Rouge. He qualified last in the eight car show with a 6.24-237.46 and in the first round he advanced with a 6.19-243 when Dale Pulde had problems on the line and shut off. He faced Beadle in the semifinals and fouled against him. The following week (June 6), St. Louis hosted the AHRA Gateway Nationals. Burgin went all the way, winning this one. He qualified #3 with a 6.17 and a 6.24-237.47 beat Ron Correnti in round one. In the semifinals, his 6.29-231.96 beat Tom Hovland and in the final, a 6.34-230.77 beat Tom Hoover's 6.49-215. After getting his first big win of the year, it was strange to see his name among the non-qualifiers at the NHRA Springnationals. His best of 6.30-236.22 was only good enough for third alternate. He did make the field at Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals on June 20. His 6.06 qualified on the "bump" spot of the eight car show. Burgin lasted until the semifinals where he lost to Tom Anderson. He was runner-up to Beadle on June 27 for Brainerd's U.S. FC Championships. Another win came at Kansas City for the AHRA Summernationals. He qualified #2 with a 6.02-239.36 behind Prudhomme's track record 5.97. He beat John Force in round one with a 6.19-229.00. In the semifinals, he advanced with a 6.14-233.16 when Hovland broke. In the final he faced Prudhomme and the "Snake" shut off with problems while Burgin got the victory with a 5.99-234.98.

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: Photo from 1980 Pop Rods, U.S. 131 Martin, MI. Ran 6.12-234.37 at NHRA Indy 9/80 | Smith had one of his best seasons ever behind the wheel of Larry Coogle's Firebird. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #3 with a 6.06-238.09. A 6.11-229.59 beat a crossed up Ed McCulloch in the first round. In the second round he smoked the tires and lost to Dale Pulde. The following week (March 23), Paul was at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. There, a 6.31-230.76 qualified first in the eight car show. Unfortunately, he lost to Pulde in the first round. He won the NHRA Division Two Opener at Warner Robins in April, stopping Billy Meyer who broke in the final with a 7.05-217.91 (top speed). On April 27 Smith was at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. It was an eight car field that was tough to crack into as Don Prudhomme, Raymond Beadle, and Dale Pulde among others failed to do. But sitting in the top qualifying spot was the "Sting's" track record 6.02 at 238.09. Smith made it to the final by beating a tire-smoking, shutting off Kenny Bernstein with a 6.16-234.In the semifinals, his 6.22 beat Ron Colson in the "Hawaiian." That put him in the final against Meyer. Paul had problems and shut down to an 8.21-108.00 that lost to Billy's 6.66-215. At the rain postponed IHRA Springnationals, Smith didn't have a very good outing. He qualified last in the eight car field and a 6.37 in the first round lost to Roy Harris' 6.30. He won the NHRA Divisional race at Gulfport International on June 1 and a week later he was at National Trail for the NHRA Springnationals. A 6.19-230.76 qualified #7. He lost to alternate John Collins in the first round.

Notes: Dick Loehr was one of many funny car drivers based out of Michigan. An engineer by trade, Dick used his job connections to get sponsorship and assistance for his racing operations. In 1967, Loehr had a new Mustang funny car built. The Max Curtis Ford "Stampede" was much lower than most of its competition. That car debuted with a 427 SOHC engine, which later was replaced by a reliable 392 Chrysler Hemi, Torqueflite combination. Loehr ran a best of 7.86 at 189.70 with the car at Orange County. The car was replaced a by new, lighter Mustang in 1969. Dick Loehr eventually left funny cars for Pro Stockers. -- BS | Dick started the season on New Year's Day at Irwindale where an 8.40 qualified tenth in the sixteen car field. He ran a first round 8.18-180 but lost to Don Nicholson's 7.99-172. At OCIR on Jan 14 for an eight-car show he qualified seventh with an 8.29-177.86 but Terry Hedrick's first round 8.28-182 beat his 8.43-168.22. On Jan 28 at Lion's for the AHRA Winter meet, he qualified third with a 7.79-178.92 and ran another 7.79-176.12 over Mike Burkhart in the first round. A second round 7.92-179.78 beat Kelly Chadwick's 8.44-162. He had an easy third round win before meeting Don Nicholson in the semifinal. Both cars lost transmissions, but Don coasted across the line first. At the South Coast Funny Car Championships on Feb 25, Loehr singled with an 8.98-141 when Jack Chrisman had injector problems. In the second round, an 8.14-169.17 beat a tire-smoking Clare Sanders. In the semifinal, he broke on the line against Roger Lindamood. On March 3, Irwindale held a sixteen car show and Dick's 8.21-180.72 qualified seventh. He lost a blower belt and the race in the first round when Fred Goeske's 8.03-182.18 beat his 8.23-153.74. A big win came at Riverside on March 24 for the HRM Championships. Another win came at OCIR for their Funny Car Team Championships on May 4. He ran as good as a first round 7.86-188.66 before winning the final when Charlie Allen broke a rear end. On May 10 at Union Grove's Night Funny Car Championships he failed to win but he did set Top Speed at 185.16. At Cecil County in July for the CARS All-Star International meet, Dick ran a first round 7.79-179.28 over Dick Bourgeois' 8.38 and went on to win the final Saturday with a 7.86-182.54 over Frank Federici's 8.25-181. On Sept 1st at Minnesota Dragways for an eight car event, Dick lost to Tommy Grove in the first round, Tom's 7.62-191.88 over Dick's (8.02-175.43). Another win came on Oct 5 at the Irwindale Grand Prix. On Nov 16 Irwindale held a Ford vs Mopar Championships and Loehr's first round 8.08-177.86 beat Larry Reyes' 8.10-181.08. A second round 7.87-188.67 beat Fred Goeske's 7.99-182.18. He lost his third race to Dave Beebe's 8.36-185.33 when he got up on two wheels and shut down to a 13.47. He won two of his races at the OCIR Manufacturer's Meet on Dec 1 running a best of 7.95-179.28 over Goeske.

Notes: "All American Boy" Charlie Allen's best remembered funny car was this 1968 Dodge Dart. This was his first flip top funny car, replacing his A/FX Dart. The new machine marked his first flip top, one-piece unit. It was a test in part for Crower products. The car ran OK, registering high 7s. Allen built the car with a Contemporary Fiberglass body with Kenny Ellis tin. Charlie raced the car under the blue & silver Atlantic Dodge and Crenshaw Dodge banners in 1968. Allen collected a $2000 win at Irwindale at the 16 car Experimental Stock Invitationals. Stats courtesy Dennis Doubleday. Info from James Ibusuki). | Ran a 7.68 Irwindale track record in Oct. - Ron Howard | Formerly listed this car at 7.95. Need to confirm it was this one and not the new red Dart that went the 7.68. BP
