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 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. A 6.06 qualified #4 at the NHRA Gatornationals but he slept in the first round and his 6.18-232.55 lost to Tom Hoover's 6.24-229. A week later (March 23), he was at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals but he failed to qualify for the eight car field. Kenny qualified #5 at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals, running 6.11-241.93 for the spot. It was an eight car show and by qualifying #5, it set up a first round race with low qualifier Paul Smith in Larry Coogle's "Sting" Firebird. Paul won the race when Bernstein smoked the tires and shut off. On May 4, he was runner up to Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max" at the rain delayed IHRA Dixie Nationals. At Bristol for another rain delayed event, the IHRA Springnationals, he qualified #3 in the eight car show with a 6.21. He lasted until the semifinals where his 6.59 lost to eventual winner Billy Meyer's 6.44. The "Budweiser King" wasn't running that well at the NHRA Springnationals, only qualifying #10 with a 6.22-232.55. He lost to Dale Pulde in the first round. He also lost in the first round at the next NHRA race, the Mile High Nationals in Denver. Kenny qualified #7 in the eight car show but his 6.57-225.00 in the first round lost to Beadle's 6.29-226. He then went to Alamo Dragway in San Antonio, Texas, for the AHRA Nationals. It was another eight car field and his 6.33 qualified #5, setting up a first round encounter with low qualifier Prudhomme. It was a close race, but the "Snake's" 6.19 beat Kenny's 6.20. He won the NHRA Division Two race at Blaney, beating John Speelman in the final with a 6.43-233.16 (top speed). He earlier had set low ET at 6.37. At Englishtown, he qualified poorly, only getting the #11 spot and in the first round he lost to Prudhomme.

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 Martin, Michigan, Popular Hot Rodding event in 1982. Kenny started the '82 season at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. Unfortunately, his best of 6.20-236.22 failed to qualify and he was third alternate for the show. He continued to have problems at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals where he was second alternate with a 6.18-221.12 best. He qualified #5 with a 6.26 in the eight car field at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet but he failed to reach the finals. The next NHRA meet was the Southern Nationals at Atlanta that had just an eight car field. Kenny and crew chief Dale Armstrong had nothing but problems and the best they could get the LN-7 to run was 12.19. Obviously, they failed to qualify. As bad as they were doing in NHRA events at the time, in IHRA, they scored a victory at the Pro-Am Championships on May 2. Kenny still didn't qualify so well, running a 6.21 for the final spot in the eight car field but he advanced past the first round when Dale Pulde lost an engine on the line. In the semi-finals, Bernstein picked up to a 6.06 to beat Al Segrini and move into the final where he faced John Pott in Larry Coogle's "Sting" car. Kenny repeated his qualifying time with a 6.21 to take the win. At the end of May, he showed at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. It was another eight car show and once again he failed to qualify. He qualified for his first NHRA event of the year at the Springnationals in June. His 6.04-236.84 got the #5 spot in the sixteen car field. He almost made it to the finals as well, by stopping Tom McEwen in round one with a 6.24 and in round two, beating Don Prudhomme. But his 6.32-223.88 in the semi-finals lost to Segrini's 6.27-236. The following week (June 20), he was at Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals. He qualified #4 with a 5.98 in the eight car show but he lost in the first round to Gary Burgin. On June 27, Bernstein was at Maple Grove for the Super Stock Magazine Nationals. He beat Kosty Ivanof in the first round with a 6.17-226.13 but in the semi-finals, he got out of shape, hit the guardrail, and coasted across the centerline. He was OK. Things started to go a bit better for the team by July when they showed up at Sanair in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals. A 6.01 qualified first and he ran 6.08 and 5.99 to reach the finals against Prudhomme. The "Snake" won with a 6.03-245 over Kenny's runner-up 6.13-233.16 effort. At Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals, a 5.93 qualified #4 and he lasted until the semi-finals before losing to Prudhomme again. The next race on the NHRA tour was the Mile High Nationals at Bandimere. The "Budweiser King" qualified #3 in the eight car show and in round one he beat Garth Widdison. In the semi-finals, he was late off the line and Billy Meyer's 6.19-223 beat his quicker 6.17-233.76. Kenny set a track record at U.S.131, Martin, Michigan, when he qualified first with a 5.90 at 247.25 for the PHR Championships. Unfortunately, he lost in the first round.

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 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 in the "Custom Body" Omni. In late July he was at Denver for the NHRA Mile High Nationals. Kenny qualified #3 in the eight car field with a 6.05-234.37 in the thin air. He beat Pulde's 6.29-229 in the first round with a 6.08-237.46. In the semifinals, an off-pace 6.33-217.91 lost to the race's eventual winner, Frank Hawley in the "Chi-Town Hustler" at 5.97-233. In August, he won over an eight car field at Bonneville Raceway. He met Force in the final and his 6.23-227.85 got the victory over John's 6.25-227. Bernstein got his first NHRA win of the year at Brainerd on Aug 21 for the Northstar Nationals. He ran 5.88-245.23 to qualify #2. In round one a 5.96-244.56 beat Pulde, and in round two, a 5.97-238 advanced when Ken Veney fouled. He got an easy run in the semifinals when Mark Oswald broke in the "Candies and Hughes" car, but he still ran 5.97-243 for the win. In the final, he was up against Hawley. Kenny gunned him down with a 5.92-246.57 over Frank's 5.96-244.

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.
