Notes: Rick Howard qualifying photo from 1992 NHRA SpringNats, Columbus. Same car from 1991. Gary made one of the most impressive runs of "ANYBODY" in '92 with 5.11 blast at Ennis, TX. | Gary started the season by qualifying #12 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.41-263.00. He lost to Al Hofmann in the first round. At the NHRA Arizona Nationals, a 5.44-256.99 qualified #8. Another 5.44-262.00 in the first round lost to eventual winner Tom Hoover's career best 5.26-273. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, he qualified #12 with a 5.43-266.27. A tire smoking 5.90-174.41 in the first round lost to Hofmann's 5.30-272. Gainesville saw him run 5.48-267.61 to qualify #15 for the NHRA Gatornationals. Gary stepped up to a career best (to this point) of 5.23-275.39 to beat Hofmann in the first round. In the second round, both he and Mark Oswald smoked the tires but Bolger recovered first to win with a 6.03-162.19. A strong 5.27-273.80 in the semifinals lost to Jim Epler's 5.22-270. The fifth NHRA event of the season was the Southern Nationals at Atlanta. Gary ran 5.48-265.33 to qualify #15. Unfortunately, he smoked the tires in the first round and lost to Gary Densham's 5.57-265. After that it was off to Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals. Gary qualified #12 with a 5.57-265.87. He lost in the first round to Del Worsham. In mid-June, Bolger was at Columbus for the NHRA Springnationals. Once again he lost in the first round, this time to Gordon Mineo. He qualified #12 with a 5.56-269.38. At the end of June, he traveled up north to Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals. He got his best qualifying spot of the year when he ran 5.38-271.24 to qualify #4. In his first round race, opponent Dale Barlet crossed the centerline and Gary had troubles and could only muster a 6.39-239.17. The trouble was terminal and he was unable to run Oswald in the second round. Englishtown hosted the NHRA Mopar Parts Nationals in July. Gary qualified #13 with a 5.59-245.56. In the first round, he broke a blower drive and lost to Chuck Etchells. The tenth race of the NHRA season was the Mile High Nationals in Denver.

Notes: Rick Howard photo from 1993 U.S. Nats (Big Bud Shootout), Indy. DNQ for "main show" at 18th overall with a best of 5.35-264.00. Qualified 6th for Big Bud Shootout. Lost to Chuck Etchells in round one. | Gary started his season by qualifying #9 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.24-271.65. He lost to Dale Pulde in the first round. The team had trouble at the NHRA Motorcraft Nationals in Arizona and Gary's best of 6.13-198.89 failed to make the field. Things were much better at Houston for the NHRA Supernationals where a 5.32-251.80 qualified #9. A 5.34-264.78 in the first round lost to Gordie Bonin's 5.21-289. Bolger had a good showing at the NHRA Gatornationals. He qualified #13 with a 5.41-264.86. A first round 5.35-262.54 beat Pulde's 5.82-240. In round two, a 5.32-268.57 took out Whit Bazemore's 5.50-209. Unfortunately, he spun the tires in the semifinals and lost to Al Hofmann's 5.17-284. At the NHRA Winston Invitational, Gary had some good luck/bad luck going on. First he failed to qualify for the eight car show running a best of 5.54-264.08 for the first alternate. Then Bazemore blew an engine in his already qualified car and the resulting fire kept him out of eliminations. Bolger took his place in the field then promptly smoked his tires in his first round race against Hofmann. Atlanta was NHRA's next stop for the Southern Nationals at the end of April. Gary qualified #11 with a 5.34-272.39. He beat a tire smoking Del Worsham in the first round with a 5.41-268.89. In round two, his 5.40-264.47 lost to Tom Hoover's 5.28-269.

Notes: During the winter of '71, '72, Jenner and Ron Hodgson purchased a partially finished '72 Vega funny car from fellow Canadian Murry Dyma after Murry decided he couldn't drive it following a licensing session at Orange County Raceway in southern California. The Vega had a blown 426 hemi for power and all the other necessary components to make it competitive in the AA/FC class. More than that, it now had a crew chief that could help it reach its full potential. Not wanting to waste any time and with the 1972 racing season fast approaching, Jenner placed a call to Gordie Bonin and offered him the ride. Once Bonin arrived from his home in the northwest and passed his competition license at Lions Drag Strip, the team was ready to go racing. - Bud De Boer. Two questions: Was Hodgson involved at this point? Did Bonin drive the car in the winter of 71 or only in 72?

Notes: Bonin started the season with a big win at the Irwindale Grand Premiere on Jan 12. He qualified with a 6.59 and ran another 6.59 in the first round over Gerry Glenn. He the semifinal he got past Gordon Swearington in Jim Terry's Mustang. In the final, he met Don Prudhomme. A 6.61-207.85 beat the Snake's up-in-smoke 8.19. On Jan 27, at Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals, a 6.58 qualified #15 but a first round 6.49-225 by Jim Nicoll beat Bonin<s 6.73-188.00. He failed in his bid to qualify at the NHRA Winternationals with a 6.67-198.23 falling short of the 6.66 bubble. Not sure how much longer he drove for Roland but by the middle of March Mike Van Sant was in the seat of the Hawaiian. Also 6.58 at Beeline 1/27/74, 6.67 at Pomona, 6.48 at Ontario.

Notes: Photo from Martin, MI 1975. | Gordie was at Beeline in Jan for the AHRA Winternationals where he qualified #9. He faced low qualifier Neil Leffler in Jim Terry's Mustang in the first round. Unfortunately, Bonin's engine let go and he had a major fire just off the line. He was OK. The damage was little and the team repaired in time to make it to Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals where Gordie ran 6.41-233.16 (top speed) to qualify #11. A first round 6.54 lost to Mike Miller's 6.43 in the "Green Elephant." At Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet, Bonin qualified #2 with a 6.30-233.76 behind Don Prudhomme's amazing 6.08-235. He lost before the finals. On March 16 he was at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. Bonin continued to qualify well running 6.43 for the #4 spot in the field. A first round 6.67 lost to Tom Prock's 6.62.

He set Low ET at 6.22 before running 6.57-219.51 in the final only to lose to Mike Miller's 6.37-231. In June he was at National Trail for the NHRA Springnationals. Bonin qualified #9 and upset low qualifier Gary Burgin in the first round. He lasted until the semifinals before losing to Don Prudhomme. Up in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals on August 7, Gordie qualified #5 in the eight car field with a 6.36-229.59. Unfortunately, that set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Prudhomme. Don ran 6.21-234 to beat Bonin's 6.29-227. A week later (Aug. 13), he was at Firebird Raceway for the Night Fire 500 race. All ten cars there made two runs with the two lowest ETs meeting in the final. Gordon didn't make the final but he did win his two races. A 7.21-215.74 beat Beadle in his first race while he shut off when Twig Zeigler fouled against him in his second race. The NHRA Division Six final was held at Portland International on Aug 19 and Gordon set low ET and top speed on a first round single with a 6.20-236.22. He got into the final only to have Beadle gate him off the line and his 6.33-225.56 lost to Raymond's 6.34-227. A track record of 230.76 was set at Spokane for the AHRA World Finals where he ran that speed while qualifying first with a 6.34. He failed to reach the finals however. At Indy for the NHRA U.S. Nationals, he qualified #3 with a 6.10-240. An off-pace 6.62-224.43 lost to Bob Pickett's 6.36-216 in the first round. Only fifteen cars showed up at Seattle for the NHRA Fallnationals so qualifying wasn't a problem. Still, Bonin ran 6.28-234.98 (top speed) to qualify #5 for the show. A 6.42-222.77 advanced over Bob Papirnick in the first round but in round two his 6.40-230.76 lost to Tripp Shumake's 6.28-223.
