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.

Notes: The second car under 5.30. Set two national records at 88 Gators, 5.333 then 5.314. Low qualifier at Indy with a 5.330. Photo from Columbus 1988. | Kenny started the '88 season at Firebird Raceway's Super Bowl of Drag Racing. He qualified #3 in the eight car field with a 5.57. In the first round, an improved 5.53-257.14 beat Jim Dunn but in the semifinals, the car broke and he lost to John Force. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified #2 with a 5.41. A 5.42 in the first round beat Don Prudhomme but in round two he smoked the tires and lost to Mark Oswald. More problems kept him from the winner's circle at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. Bernstein set top speed in qualifying with a 271.90 pass and in round one his 5.40-267.06 beat Dominic Santucci, but in the semifinals, he shut off just off the line giving Force an easy ride into the final. Kenny broke through with a win at the next race, the NHRA Gatornationals. He qualified #3 with a 5.37-272 and in the first round beat Chuck Etchells with a 5.33-278.46 (top speed). In round two, his 5.39-274.97 beat R.C. Sherman and a low ET shot at 5.31 took out Tom Hoover in the semifinals. The 5.31 was a new NHRA record. To top it all off, he beat Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" car in the final with a 5.35-278.12. At Atlanta in April for the NHRA Southern Nationals, Bernstein lasted until the semifinals where his 5.72 lost to Force's 5.60. Things didn't go very well at Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals. He qualified #7 with a 5.64 and in the first round beat Prudhomme, but in round two, the car broke at about half track, advancing Ed McCulloch into the semifinals. For the first time since the season opener at Darlington, Kenny was back on the IHRA trail at Bristol for the Springnationals. He qualified first and a 5.66-253.59 beat Scott Kalitta in the first round but in the semifinals, he smoked the tires and lost to Dale Pulde. A week later he was in the finals at the NHRA Cajun Nationals. There he ran 5.47 over Johnny West, a 5.53-256 over Prudhomme, and a 5.50-257 over a tire smoking Oswald in the semifinals. In the final, he lost to an old veteran of the FC wars, Bruce Larson. A 5.44 (low ET) qualified low at the NHRA Springnationals and in the first round, he took out Jim Head. A 5.73-244 beat a tire smoking Pulde but in the semifinals, he got out of shape and shut off, losing to Force. The wins certainly weren't coming as often as they did in years past and at the NHRA Grandnationals, he fouled in the first round against Jerry Caminito. Kenny qualified #5 with a 5.56-257.65 while Jerry had qualified with a 5.89. Things went better at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. A 5.48-258.39 qualified #3 in the field and he lasted until the semifinals where Larson's 5.57-260 beat his 5.62-255. The "Budweiser King's" next stop was at Maple Grove for the Super Stock Nationals. It was an eight car show and Bernstein qualified first with a 5.54 (low ET) at 248.61. He beat Caminito in round one with a 5.66-248.61 and a 5.62-249.30 beat Santucci in the semifinals setting up a final, round race with Larson. Kenny won that race. After that, he won the NHRA Seafair Nationals at Seattle. A 5.33-269.46 qualified #3. He beat Eric Reed in the first round and improved to a 5.32-270 in round two to beat Force. In the semifinals, a 5.43-258 beat Richard Tharp in the "Blue Max." In the final, he met Brad Tuttle and Bernstein got the win with a 5.35-271.16.

Notes: Set 5.257 national record at Memphis 89. Ran 276.75 at 89 Big Bud Shootout. Photo from Indy 1989. | Everyone expected this car to win the NHRA FC Championship in '89. After winning the championship the previous four years it was a little disappointing how the season went for Kenny. It started at Pomona for the Winternationals. Kenny qualified way down the ladder in the #13 spot with a 5.47-266.74. In the first round, he improved to a 5.42-264.16 to beat Dale Pulde. In round two, a consistent 5.43-269.21 beat Tom Hoover. In the semifinal, he beat Chris Lane with a 5.48-265.33. He met who was soon to be his nemesis, Bruce Larson, in the final. And sure enough, Larson scored the win over Bernstein. The next event on the NHRA schedule was the Supernationals. Kenny qualified #4 with a 5.30-270.27 but broke a rear end in the second round and lost to Art Hendey. The Gatornationals was the next stop and a 5.39-269.70 qualified #6. He lost to Larson in the second round. At the fourth race of the year, the Southern Nationals in Atlanta, Bernstein qualified #4 with a 5.47-266.27 but once again he lost in the second round, this time to Eric Reed. He looked like the Bernstein of old at the Mid-South Nationals at Memphis. He qualified first with a 5.25 (Low ET) at 280.11. He beat Scott Kalitta in the first round and then got a couple of lucky breaks when in round two both he and Hoover smoked the tires but Kenny's 6.45-232 held on for the win. In the semifinals, he ran a 5.42-270 to win over Ed McCulloch who shut off to a 10.00. In the final, he ran Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" Probe and once again he had a little luck when Oswald broke and Bernstein scored his first victory of the season. The next race was the Cajun Nationals. Kenny used a 5.50-266.50 to qualify #4. In the first round against John Martin, the car broke on the burnout giving Martin an easy single. The seventh race of the season was the Springnationals at National Trail. Bernstein qualified #3 with a 5.33-269.13. He beat Kalitta in the first round with another 5.33 but smoked the tires and lost to Jim White in round two. A strong performance was turned in at the Grandnationals in Canada. Kenny set low ET in qualifying first with a 5.44-265.72. In the first round, both he and Johnny West had problems and both ran 5.60's, West at 253 and Bernstein at 212.31 but the Buick still won the race. In round two, a 5.47-270.92 (Top Speed) beat Hoover's 5.68. In the semifinals, he beat Don Prudhomme's 5.73-231 with a 5.48-254.47. Once again he met with Oswald in the final, and once again the results were the same with Kenny's 5.51-265.72 beating Oswald's close 5.54-258. He didn't have to wait long for his third victory of the year as it came at the next event, the Summernationals at Englishtown. He qualified #3 with a 5.35 and beat Hendey in the first round and John Force in the second with a 5.36-272. In the semifinals, he ran a solo 5.40-270 when Prudhomme broke just off the line. In the final he was paired with McCulloch and Kenny ran a 5.41 for the win over Ed's 5.50. He was a favorite to win when the teams headed to Denver for the Mile High Nationals. He didn't disappoint in qualifying when his 5.53-263.38 (Top Speed) got the pole. He beat Hendey in the first round and a 5.62-254 beat Mike Dunn's close 5.65 in round two. But in the semifinals, Oswald put him away with a track record 5.50. The California Nationals was next and again Kenny qualified well with a 5.39-273.88 taking the #3 spot. Unfortunately, both he and Tony McCallum ran 5.52 in the first round with Tony taking the win. The next race was the Seafair Nationals at Seattle. Bernstein qualified #4 with a 5.34-278.89 (Top Speed). In the first round, he beat Hendey's 5.57-260 with a 5.35-276.66. In round two, a 5.41-248.23 beat R.C. Sherman and in the semifinals he took a big win over Prudhomme with a 5.34-276.07 beating the "Snake's" 5.40-263. In the final, he met Larson and despite running quicker and faster with 5.37-273.22 times he lost to Larson's holeshot 5.40-271. At the Northstar Nationals, a 5.43-266.11 qualified #2. He ran an easy 11.70-72.42 in the first round when McCallum broke. But in round two against Larson, Kenny ran even worse when he smoked the tires to a 14.35-70.56 to lose to Bruce's 5.51-271. Well, Kenny and Dale probably thought that things couldn't possibly get worse when they went to Indy for the U.S. Nationals. A 5.37-276.75 qualified #8 there but in round one he lost to Hoover. They went to Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals and set low ET and Top Speed in qualifying first with a 5.35-264.71. Kenny got past a fouling Gary Bolger in the first round and in the semifinals, he ran a 5.64-216.35 that beat Doc Halladay's quicker 5.61. In the final, he met second qualifier, R.C. Sherman, who beat him with a 5.50 to the "Budweiser King's" 5.54. On Sept 10 he was at Darlington for the IHRA U.S. Open. A 5.51-264.41 qualified #2. In the first round he smoked the tires to a 6.67 but still beat Halladay. In the semifinals, a 5.54-272 beat Johnny West's 5.98-244. Kenny got his first IHRA victory of the year when he stopped a tire smoking Darrell Amberson in the final with a 5.56-273.53. A week later (Sept 17), he was at Maple Grove for the NHRA Keystone Nationals. He broke 280 in qualifying with a 5.25-280.37 (#3). Another 5.25 at 279.06 beat a fouling Scott Kalitta in the first round, but in round two, he smoked the tires in a 6.80-141.17 loss to Larson's 5.30-276.

Notes: Arnie Beswick might not have been the biggest winner of the sixties, but he did put on a hell of a show. Beswick was a loyal Pontiac racer, though there was a short stint with a factory-supported Comet A/FX in early 1965. The "Tameless Tiger" 1963 funny car was home-built from 1963 lightweight factory Tempest parts and steel to replace the previous blown GTO's weight and wheelbase restrictions. working doors, wheelbase mods, and leaf springs meant it was a little scary to say the least. Beswick had already stepped up to blown nitro after beginning with gas in the previous GTO at the urging of future funny car star Frank Oglesby. this gave the greater Chicago area three blown nitro funny cars in 1964, including Gary Dyer in the Mr. Norm's Dodge, Ron Pellegrini's Super Mustang, and Beswick's goat. In adition to the wheelbase changes, the "Tameless Tiger" was rebuilt to be much lighter than when it first raced in AFX. how much of the rare original FX vehicle was used is unknown. As a supercharged fuel car, it was a serious contender nationwide the two seasons it was raced, noted for Extreme wheelstands and top-end antics. The TT was crashed once by Arnie at Cecil County in early 1966, and again much more severely by driver Arnie Behling during a North Carolina match race in 1967. Beswick never fixed it and it was relegated to the Morrison junkpile. - Geoff Stunkard | The remains were purchased by Mr. Donnie Reeves of Marietta, GAA/in 1994, who restored the original Body utilizing new fiberglass front end & doors. Don consulted with Arnie Beswick to ensure the TT was as correct as possible. The car even made a couple passes at a nostalgia show in the mid 90s. The TT was purchased by Mr. Don Snyder Jr. of New Springfield, OH, in 2001 and currently resides in his Extensive lightweight & drag car collection (see racer link). | Need to confirm best times.

Beswick found the car so popular that he dropped his new A/FX Mercury sponsorship deal midway through the '65 season rather than park the Tornado. After building the 1963 Tameless Tiger Tempest, the chassis was sold to a circle track team in the Quad Cities region and was subsequently destroyed. The lightweight panels from the car were lost in a well-publicized fire at Beswick's farm. -- GS

Notes: Hard to say whether his tiger-striped AWB LeMans coupe or the beautiful "Star Of The Circuit" GTO is the Farmer's most famous racecar. The "Star" was built on a budget. Beswick didn't have the dough for a full tube chassis, so he took the stock frame from under the '64 Mystery Tornado GTO and had the Logghe Bros. ad a tube front axle to it. This car has been restored and is running serious laps at nostalgia drag events. -- RT

Notes: This is Arnie's 1968 car. He did run it some in 1969. A September 1969 American Rodder magazine credits the car with a 7.71 at Quaker City and 194.36 mph at Orlando. However, it's unclear whether the times were run in 1968 or early 1969. Fiberglass LTD body.
