Notes: Crashed into the guardrail at OCIR, ending the Super Chief series of cars. Henry Harrison brought the name back in the late 70s. | Just to add a little about the crash. It was at an eight car show in March. Steve was attempting to qualify when the car went into a wheelstand. He got off the peddle and the Charger landed hard, breaking the steering. With no control, the car went into the guardrail and exploded into flames. He got out and was OK but the car was a total loss.

Notes: First year with Budweiser sponsorship. Crashed brand new car at press conference. Crashed rebuilt car at Winternationals. ET and MPH from either NHRA Fallnats or Finals (Ontario). Think MPH was on same run, I think he also got pole with that run for whichever. - Curt Swartz | Kenny started the '80 season with a runner-up finish to Don Prudhomme at the OCIR Super Bowl of Drag Racing event. At the NHRA Winternationals he qualified #2 with a 6.06-233.16. He lost to Dale Pulde in the first round when he hit the guardrail. He had got out of shape and ended up crossing the centerline and hitting the rail. He was OK but the Arrow body was wrecked. Bernstein went to Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet but failed to reach the finals.

Notes: Set national record at 5.90 at 1981 Mile High nationals (altitude factored?) Ran first five with a 5.99 at Gainesville 3/15/81 to become the 7th member of the Cragar Five Second FC Club. Need to confirm that this was a Mike Kase car. | Kenny started the season in a good way, by winning the AHRA Winternationals at Tucson on Jan 18. He qualified #2 with a 6.69-196 and in the first round he picked up to a 6.56-211 to beat Tom Hoover's 6.85-209. In the semifinals, he ran 6.56 again at 213 to beat a tire smoking Don Prudhomme. In the final, he unleashed low ET (traction was poor) 6.54-214 to take the win over low qualifier Gordie Bonin's 6.68-202. At Pomona on Feb 1 for the NHRA Winternationals, Kenny barely made the field, qualifying #15. He lost to Denny Savage in the first round. That should have been it for his Pomona story but in the semifinals, his Texas neighbors, the "Blue Max" team had blown off its roof on a 245 mph run that beat Prudhomme. They had no spare body so Bernstein offered up his spare. The "Max" team cut the roof off of his car and grafted it onto theirs. All that effort and they lost to Billy Meyer in the final. On March 8, Kenny was at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet. A 6.42-226.13 qualified #8 in the sixteen car field. Unfortunately, the race was postponed one week due to rain and he was unable to return the following week. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #5 with a 6.01-245.90. He beat Ron Colson's 6.06-233 in the "Hawaiian" in the first round with a 5.99-238.72. He advanced past Prudhomme in round two when the "Snake" got crossed up. In the semifinal, he lost to Bonin. A week later (March 22), he was in the winner's circle at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. He set Low ET at 6.18 and beat Shirl Greer and Dale Pulde to reach the final. In the final, he ran the team he helped at Pomona, the Raymond Beadle driven "Blue Max." Kenny took the victory with a 6.45-212. On April 5, he was at Green Valley Raceway for the NHRA Western Regional Opener. It was an eight car show and Kenny's 6.27-233.76 qualified #2. He set low ET in the first round with a 6.15-240.00 that beat Brian Conway. In the semifinals, a 6.45-209.79 lost to Beadle's 6.25-228. The NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta also had an eight car field. It was a tough show to make with a 6.16 "bump." A 6.09-241.28 qualified Bernstein #3. He made his way to the finals by beating Meyer in the first round with a 6.08-242.58, and in the semifinals, Prudhomme broke against him. In the final, he faced Tripp Shumake in Johnny Loper's Arrow. It was a close race but Tripp's 6.07-233 beat Kenny's 6.08-243.90 (top speed). May 3 found the "Budweiser King" team at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro Am Championships. He qualified #2 with a 6.03 and won his first round race over Paul Smith with a 6.14-231.36. In the semifinal, his 6.28-226.70 lost to Meyer's 6.26-213.77. OCIR hosted the NHRA Western Regional on May 9. Things didn't go well there. It was an eight car show with a soft "bump" of only 6.47. The "Budweiser King" failed to qualify. After that it was off to Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. A 6.17-245.90 (top speed) qualified #5 in the eight car field. He faced low qualifier, Beadle in the first round and smoked the tires and lost. He ended the month of May with a runner up finish to Meyer at the IHRA World Nationals. He did come away with low ET at 5.97. At the NHRA Springnationals, Kenny qualified #5 with a 6.12-239.36. This set up an interesting first round race with his eventual crew chief, Dale Armstrong. Bernstein won that first round race with a 6.18-238 but he didn't get much further when his round two 6.21-233.16 lost to Beadle's 6.15-235.

Notes: Photo from '83 Cajun Nationals. Longtime Bernstein crewman Mike Guger poses with the Bud King. Kenny started the year win a win at the OCIR Grand Premiere race. At Pomona, for the NHRA Winternationals, he didn't do quite as well. Bernstein ran 6.34-222.22 to qualify #15 and he beat Dale Pulde in the first round, but in round two he lost to Gary Burgin. Burgin got him at the next NHRA meet as well, the Gatornationals in March. Kenny had qualified #10 with a 5.95-241.93 but a first round 5.94-245.90 lost to Gary's Low ET run of 5.78-238. Things went more Bernstein's way at Darlington the following weekend (March 20) for the IHRA Winternationals. He qualified first with a 6.14 and set Low ET with a 6.13. He beat Pulde in a semifinal tire smoker and then met Raymond Beadle's "Blue Max" in the final. Kenny took the win with a 6.21-227.27 over Beadle's 6.39-215. At the NHRA Southern Nationals on April 17 at Atlanta, Kenny's best of 6.08 failed to qualify for the eight car show. Yet the following week (April 24), he qualified easily for the eight car field at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. His 6.02 qualified #4. Unfortunately, he failed to reach the finals. He didn't make the finals at the IHRA World Nationals at Norwalk either but he did set Low ET at 5.88. A 6.02-222.77 qualified #4 in the eight car field at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. He failed to reach the finals and followed the NHRA tour to Columbus for the Springnationals at National Trail. Kenny ran a 5.96-246.57 to qualify #4 but slowed to an off-pace 6.25-237.46 in the first round that lost to John Force's 6.01-246. He went to Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals, but failed to qualify for the eight car field that had a "bump" of 6.01. The rough spell continued with Bernstein failing to make the show at the NHRA Grandnationals which was another eight car show. Things went much better at Milan for the IHRA Northern Nationals. There he not only qualified but he made his way into the final before losing to Beadle and taking the runner-up spot. At the NHRA Summernationals, Kenny made the show with a 6.02-245.23 (#11). He beat a tire smoking Tom Anderson in the first round before slowing to a 6.14-236 in round two that lost to Rick Johnson's 6.05-240.

Notes: Followed Joe Amato into the 260 mph zone by minutes. Also nice 5.80-255.68 at IHRA Cincinnati. | Bernstein ran well in '84 becoming the first FC driver to run 260. He had benefited from wind tunnel testing the previous December. He ended up finishing third in the NHRA year long points chase and if it were not for Sherm Gunn, he may have finished higher. Gunn beat Bernstein in the first round three times on the NHRA tour. Still with the addition of an on-board computer to aid crew chief Dale Armstrong, Kenny was always a threat to win. He started the season by winning the Super Bowl of Drag Racing at Firebird Raceway in Jan. A final round 5.98-248.61 beat Tom McEwen's 6.07-236. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified first with a 5.83 (Low ET) at 252.80. Unfortunately, a first round 5.90-251.91 lost to John Force's 5.89-247. He made history at the next event, the NHRA Gatornationals in March. He qualified #2 with a 5.78-256.41. In the first round he beat Tom Anderson with a 5.84-256.41. In round two, a 5.79-257.87 advanced when Mark Oswald broke, and in the semifinals, a 5.79-256.41 beat a tire smoking Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max." In the final, he ran his historic 5.80-260.11 to win over John Collins' 5.92-245. This was the last 260 mph run he would make this season as well as his only NHRA win of '84. At Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals, a 5.88-254.23 qualified #2 and he lasted until round two where McEwen's 5.87-245 put the Tempo's 6.04-245 on the trailer. At Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals, Kenny qualified first with a 5.78-255.68. He made it into the final where he ran 5.80-254.23 for the runner-up spot to Billy Meyer's 5.73-252. He was at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships and ran well but failed to make the finals. At the NHRA Cajun Nationals, he qualified fourth in the eight car field and lost in the first round when he smoked the tires and advanced Meyer's 5.94. He lost in the first round at the IHRA Springnationals as well. Another first round loss came at the NHRA Springnationals. He qualified #4 with a 5.84-252.10 but in the first round smoked the tires and lost to Gunn. At the NHRA Grandnationals in Canada,a 5.96-252.80 qualified #12 but once again he lost early. Things went better the following week (July 8) at Milan for the IHRA Northern Nationals where he won by beating Don Prudhomme in the final. At Englishtown on July 15 for the NHRA Summernationanals, he qualified #5 with a 5.79 but broke a reverser after his burnout in the semifinals and giving eventual winner Beadle a single into the final. At Denver for the NHRA Mile High Nationals, he again made it as far as the semis before losing. On August 5, Kenny won his second IHRA event, the Summernationals at Edgewater Park near Cincinnati. He beat Oswald in the final with a 5.80-255.68 to Mark's 5.84-251. Mark got one back at the next race, the NHRA Northstar Nationals at Brainerd where he stopped Bernstein in the semifinals. At Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals, Kenny qualified #2 with a 5.73-249.89 but he failed to reach the finals. The Budweiser King team had made enough points in qualifying at NHRA national events to be able to run in the Big Bud Shootout at Indianapolis. It was an eight car affair and in the first round, Kenny's 5.95-247.93 beat Dale Pulde's 5.97-246. In the semifinals, his 5.91-252.10 lost to McEwen's 5.84-254. For the running of the NHRA U.S. Nationals, Kenny qualified for the field with a 5.78-257.14 (#7). He beat a tire smoking Gunn in the first round with a 5.91 and in round two, a 5.84-249.30 beat Meyer who also smoked the tires. In the semifinals, a 5.74-250.69 advanced when Frank Hawley got out of shape in the "Chi-Town Hustler" and almost smacked the guardrail. In the final, he had problems and slowed to a 15.24-50.81 that lost to Jim Head's 5.96-254. A week later he was at Bristol for the IHRA Fallnationals where once again he ran well, but failed to reach the finals.

Notes: Long Nose 85-86. First lock-up clutch at Indy resulted in best ever times of 5.509 at 271.41, which were not backed up for records. Hit the first 5.40s with a 5.425 low qualifier at the Ennis Chiefs which was not backed up as a record. However, a 5.543 at Ennis was backed up as the new record. Ran 266.66 and 265.17 at 86 Chiefs. | This was Kenny's last year with the Tempo body and probably one of, if not, his best season. The NHRA season started at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He qualified first with a 5.60 and continued to run 5.60's in the first two rounds over Rick Johnson and John Martin. But in the semifinals, he smoked the tires and lost to eventual winner Tim Grose who ran a 5.61 for the win. Kenny's 5.60 held for Low ET. At the Gatornationals, he qualified first with a track record 5.59 at 261.17. In the first round he beat Tom Hoover's 5.76-254 with a 5.64-255.24. In round two, a 5.66-256.99 beat John Force's 5.91-212 but he lost to a holeshot by Tom McEwen in the semifinals, when Tom's 5.67-256 beat Kenny's 5.65-255.82. He was runner-up to Paul Smith at the IHRA Pro-Am at Rockingham and once again he walked off with Low ET honors with a 5.58. At the NHRA Southern Nationals in April, he qualified first with a 5.67-260.86 (Low ET and Top Speed), but then suffered a rare first round loss. He got out qualified for the first time that year at the NHRA Cajun Nationals when Force ran 5.66 (Low ET) while Kenny had to settle for the second position with a 5.69-253.73. But for the second race in a row, he lost in the first round. This time his 5.88-237.52 lost to Johnny West's 5.83-252 in the "Hawaiian." At Bristol he got another runner-up finish at the IHRA Springnationals. He set Low ET at 5.57 but in the final he blew an engine letting Grose's 5.87-231 get the victory. Another runner-up finish followed at the NHRA Springnationals. A 5.65-254.02 qualified #2 behind Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" Firebird. And that's how they finished. The final saw Oswald's 5.76-255 take the win over the Tempo's 5.80-250.13. It was a strange situation, the "Budweiser King" was probably the most feared car to come up against in competition, yet here it was, the middle of June and the team hadn't won yet. Well, that all changed with the running of the Super Stock Nationals. While it wasn't a major event, it was still a satisfying win. Kenny qualified first in the eight car show with a 5.62-257.14 (Low ET and Top Speed). He beat Bruce Larson and Dominic Santucci with times of 5.75-254.95 and 5.72-256.41 before singling for the win with a 5.76-251.39 when West's Daytona broke. Now that the seal was broken, the wins started coming. On June 29 he won the NHRA Grandnationals. He qualified #2 with a 5.71-254.66 but went on to set Low ET at 5.66 and in the final be beat Force with a 5.69-257.28. The following week (July 6), he won the IHRA Northern Nationals at Milan. A 5.81-256.41 (Low ET and Top Speed) qualified first and he beat Smith and Grose with times of 5.95-253.52 and 5.84-252 to meet Oswald in the final. A 5.87-253.52 wrapped up the win. He took his fourth meet in a row at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. He qualified #2 behind Oswald with a 5.62-239.48. He beat Scott Kalitta in the first round and a 5.67-254 beat West in round two. In the semifinals, Hoover smoked the tires against him and his 5.66-257 got lane choice over Force in the final. Once again Bernstein prevailed, running 5.65-259.39 for another win. He managed to get into the finals at the next NHRA race, the Mile High Nationals at Denver. Kenny qualified first with a 5.84-227.96 and made his way into the final to meet Oswald. It took a Low ET of the meet run by Oswald to keep Bernstein out of the winners circle again. Mark's 5.81-252 nipped Kenny's close 5.82-247.52. He won the PHR Championships at US 131, Martin, Michigan. A 5.79-247.25 qualified first in the sixteen car field. In the first two rounds he ran 5.74 and 5.50 while beating Bob Gottschalk and Scott Kalitta. But in the semifinals, he set track records of 5.72-259.36 to beat Grose's 5.94. In the final, he ran Oswald again. But Kenny took the win easily with a 5.77-257.87 when Mark had problems and slowed to a 7.55-120. On August 17, Kenny set Low ET in qualifying first at the NHRA Northstar Nationals with a track record 5.67 at 251.39. Unfortunately, in the first round, he fouled away a 5.81 against Billy Meyer. The following week (August 24), he was back in the winner's circle at Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals. He qualified #2 (behind Oswald), but improved to a meet's best of 5.57-260. In the final, he met and beat Oswald.
