Notes: Meyer finished number 3 in 77. Billy was still running his Camaro when he showed up at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. Unfortunately, he failed to qualify. He was driving his new Arrow at the NHRA Gatornationals in March where he qualified #6 with a 6.36-235. He beat Pat Foster's 6.39-230 in Joe Pisano's Firebird in the first round with a 6.37-221. In round two, an easy 6.91-192 advanced over Tim Kushi's troubled 13.51 and in the semifinals, he singled with a 9.32 when Gordie Bonin failed to fire. In the final, he met Dale Pulde. This would not be an easy run as Pulde had been running steady 6.3's. Sure enough, Dale prevailed with a 6.42-234 over Meyer's runner-up effort of 6.52-213.77. Still, not too bad for a new car.

He beat low qualifier Tripp Shumake in the first round with a 6.33-212 over Shumake's 6.59-218 in Johnny Loper's Arrow. Unfortunately, he fouled against Tom McEwen in round two. At the Gatornationals, a 6.32-234 qualified #5. He beat George Johnson in the first round with a 6.42-222. But again he lost in the second round. This time, a 6.71-201 lost to Don Prudhomme's 6.42-232. Burgin qualified #3 at the NHRA Springnationals with a 6.18-234.98. A first round 6.30-234.98 advanced when Dale Pulde fouled against him. But in round two, a 6.40-230.17 lost to Shumake's 6.22-226. Gary won the UDRA North American Grandnationals at Detroit. He beat Tom Prock in the final. He qualified #8 at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals with a 6.16, but he failed to make the finals. He was runner-up to Prudhomme at the NHRA Grandnationals in Canada. He had qualified #4 in the eight-car show with a 6.21 and in round one a 6.23-227.27 beat Kenny Bernstein. He soloed into the final with a 6.20-227.84 when Johnson failed to show. On the single run, he burned some pistons. A final round 6.47 lost to Prudhomme's 6.08. Another runner-up finish came at the Jungle Jim Memorial FC Championships at Maple Grove. There he lost to Ed McCulloch in the final.

Notes: Titanium Chassis. The '71 Pinto was the team car to a '71 Mach 1 driven by Henry Harrison. With trick titanium Woody chassis, the cars were somewhat lighter. Although they started with Fords, both ended up with Hemis early in the year. Harrison qualified the Mach 1 low at '71 Indy (6.54) but Pulde eventually made the final while running 6.70's, losing to the Ace as the Pinto went up in flames. In '72 the Pinto was painted red and the Mach 1 was replaced by a blue Vega. | Pinto ran 223 at Minneapolis 71. - Dale Pulde, 7/03/15

Notes: Photo from Milan, MI 1985. | After a great season in '84, Jim returned to the Funny Car wars in '85 hoping for more. He started the season by qualifying #12 with a 5.94-249.44 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. In the first round, he slowed to an off pace 6.25 that lost to Kenny Bernstein's 5.80. At Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals, he qualified #13 with a 6.23 and lated until the second round where he smoked the tires and lost to Mark Oswald. He then went to Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. A 5.89-244.69 qualified #14 and in the first round he had problems and shut off to a 14.60-56.13 that lost to Dale Pulde's 5.87-243. Jim was having a tough time getting past the first round and it continued at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships where he lost to Jody Smart in the first frame. On a good note, he was qualifying for all these shows, a hard thing to do. He almost didn't make the field at the NHRA Southern Nationals where his 6.02-248.89 qualified #15. He lost to Don Prudhomme in the first round. He made up for those early losses at the next NHRA event, the Cajun Nationals at Baton Rouge on May 26. There he qualified #13 with a 5.98-246.44. He beat Tim Grose in the first round and in round two, Prudhomme broke on his burnout, advancing Jim into the semifinals. In his semifinal race, a 5.93-245 beat Ron Correnti putting him in the final against Bernstein. Head would have rather raced for the win than take a solo trip, but Bernstein broke on the line and Jim soloed with a 5.93-248.48 for the victory. Things reverted bad to "normal" at the next few races. His next event was at Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. He qualified on the "bump" spot of the sixteen car show with a 5.98 but he lost to Pulde in the first round. At the NHRA Springnationals, he qualified #11 with a 5.95-234.13 but lost to Ed McCulloch in the first round. The pattern continued at the NHRA Grandnationals where he qualified #9 with a 5.83-251.53 and lost early.

Notes: This car made its debut in August and made shakedown runs at OCIR before heading east for the NHRA Nationals. At Indy Don used consistent low seven second times to capture his first NHRA National Event. He beat Leroy Goldstein (Ramchargers) in the final 7.00-214.79 to a losing 7.14-211.26. | Don debuted this car at OCIR on Aug 29 for an eight car show. He ran really well, qualifying first with a 7.02-211.76 (top speed and a track record), well ahead of Mike Snively's 7.19 in the #2 spot. In the first round, he set low ET with a 6.93 (track record) at 210.28 to beat alternate Johnny Wright in the "Fiberglass Trends" Javelin. Unfortunately, on that pass, Don had shelled a rear axle and was unable to compete in the semifinals. A week later (Sept 7), he got his big win at Indianapolis for the NHRA U.S. Nationals. There he qualified with a 7.07 and in the first round his 7.17 beat Leonard Hughes quicker 7.10. In the second round, he ran another 7.07 at 210.28 to beat Jay Howell's 7.64-152 in Don Prudhomme's 'Cuda. Schumacher picked up to a 7.01-212.26 in the semifinals to beat Bobby Rowe's 7.18-205 in the "Super Duster" and in the final, he was just a tick of the clock away from the "sixes" with a 7.00-214.79 (top speed) that beat Leroy Goldstein's 7.14-211 in the "Ramchargers" Challenger for the title.

Notes: Confirmed 262.08 at Ennis at first nitro match race at the track (before the national event) August 1986. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. | Billy started the '86 season by qualifying #6 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.75-241.28. He was a little late out of the gate in the first round as his 5.85-242.58 lost to Mike Dunn's 5.91-241 in Joe Pisano's Daytona. He attended an eight car show at Atlanta where he qualified #3 with a 6.20-210.28. He shut off against Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" Firebird in the first round. At the NHRA Gatornationals, Meyer qualified #3 with a 5.76-251.11. He beat Jim Head in the first round before smoking the tires and losing to Tom McEwen in round two. Firebird raceway hosted the Coor's FC race in April and Billy had tire-smoking problems on both his runs; he lost to John Force and Johnny West with times of 12.62 and 6.38-205.01. Needless to say, he failed to make it to the finals. On April 20 he was at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals where he ran 5.75-252.10 to qualify #3. He beat Tom Hoover before smoking the tires to a 6.12-244.16 loss to Ed McCulloch who also had traction problems at 6.02-242. In May, he was at Famoso for the Bakersfield Meet. He ran 5.84-252.80 to qualify #3 in the eight car field. He stepped up to a 5.77-250 in the first round to beat Rodney Flournoy's 6.46 Firebird but in round two, a 5.78-253.52 lost to eventual winner John Force's 5.76-245. At Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals, a 5.75-256.99 qualified #4. In round one, he beat Paul Smith's 5.99-230 with a 5.76-253.66. A second round 5.89-241.80 advanced when Head got out of shape and crossed the centerline. In the semifinals, a 5.86-245.40 beat Johnny West's 5.94-244 in the "Hawaiian." That put him in the final against McEwen. Unfortunately, he smoked the tires and lost with an 8.37-94.59 while the "Goose" took the victory with a 5.78-249. Meyer qualified #5 with a 5.83-242.65 at Columbus for the NHRA Springnationals, but he lost early. At the end of June, he was up north in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals. A 5.84-240.64 qualified #5 for the show. In the first round, Billy's ailing 9.22-91.53 advanced when Bruce Larson smoked the tires and shut off. In the second round he fouled away a 5.81 and lost to Kenny Bernstein's 5.67. At Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals, Billy qualified #4 with a 5.66-255.82. He beat Head in the first round but in the second round the Mustang broke on the line giving Hoover a free ride into the semifinals. He lost early at the NHRA Mile High Nationals as well, after qualifying #6 with a 5.91-191.53. Meyer qualified in the dreaded #9 spot with a 5.88-245.23. It was dreaded because if you qualified in that spot, you faced the number one qualifier in your first race. That's exactly what Billy did, but he lucked out when low qualifier Bernstein fouled away a 5.81 while Meyer motored into the second round with a 6.12-180.00. In the second round, he ran a 5.96-238.09 that lost to Hoover's 5.91-256.

Notes: Photo from Pomona, CA 1979. | Tom had a great year in '79, especially the early part of the season. He started the year by winning the AHRA Winternationals over Gary Burgin and then he went to Pomona for NHRA's Winternationals where he qualified #8 with a 6.26-229. He ran 6.24 and 6.18 in the first two rounds on the way to meeting Tripp Shumake in the semifinals. There he ran another 6.24 to beat Tripp. In the final he met low qualifier, Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max." Beadle smoked his tires and Hoover ran a consistent 6.29-232.55 for the victory. He made the finals at the next NHRA event as well, the Gatornationals in March. Tom had qualified #3 with a 6.22. He beat Tom McEwen in round two with a 6.56-230 and a 6.50-226 beat a tire smoking Don Prudhomme in the semi finals. In the final he ran Gordie Bonin and despite Tom's quicker and faster 6.84-227.27 he lost to Bonin's 6.93-224. Also in March he was runner-up to McEwen at the NHRA Division Four race at LaPlace. The NHRA Cajun Nationals had an eight car field and Tom ran 6.38-231.36 to qualify sixth. It was a hard show to make as Billy Meyer, Gene Snow, Shumake, and John Collins among others failed to qualify. A first round 6.44-223.32 lost to Beadle's 6.37-229. Hoover then ran at St. Louis for the AHRA Gateway Nationals where he qualified first with a track record 6.22 at 232.56. He failed to make the finals but he ran well. He also failed to make it into the final rounds at the NHRA Springnationals in Columbus but he qualified well, running 6.15 for the #3 spot in the field. Tom was at Alamo Dragway in San Antonio for the AHRA Nationals later in June. The Corvette was running strong going 6.19-242.60 (Top Speed) in his first round win and in the semifinals, he soloed with a 6.21. In the final, he ran McEwen but Hoover had problems and shut off. Hoover's 242.60 was a new AHRA speed record. In July he was at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. Tom qualified #7 with a 6.20-238.09. A first round 6.23 beat Al Hanna but in round two he smoked the tires and lost to John Force. Also in July he finished runner-up to Pete Williams in the "Chi Town Hustler" at the NHRA Division Three race at Union Grove. At the U.S. 131 FC Nationals Tom lost in the first round to Frank Oglesby. At the PHR Championships at U.S. 131 he failed to qualify. Tom then qualified first at the AHRA Summernationals at Kansas City with a 6.22-232.55. He got crossed up in the semifinals and lost to Tom Hovland. At the AHRA World Finals, he again qualified first, this time with a 6.30-225 but again he failed to make the finals. During the year he also set a 6.06 track record at Fremont and a 6.07 at the Indy Nationals on Labor Day.

Notes: First FC in the 5.20s with a 5.255 at Ennis IHRA 1988, followed by a quicker 5.230. Photo from Columbus 1988. Best NHRA times of 5.252 at Houston Fall 88 and 277.26 at Maple Grove 9/88. | Ed started the season at Firebird Raceway's Super Bowl of Drag Racing that featured an eight car FC show. McCulloch qualified #2 with a 5.56-261.62 behind John Force's 5.34. These two would end up meeting in the final. The "Ace" got there by first beating Ron Fassl with a 5.60-260.86 and in the semifinals, a 5.73-255.68 got around a tire smoking Don Prudhomme. John was running two tenths quicker with 5.40 and 5.41 times. In the final, it was a foregone conclusion. John beat Ed's 5.73-204.08 with a 5.47-267 to take the title. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, a 5.39 (low ET) got the pole but in the first round, the "Ace" smoked the tires and lost to Bruce Larson. His next stop was at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. There, a first round 5.69-256.41 beat a tire smoking Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" car, but in the semifinals against Tripp Shumake, the Cutlass broke on the line. A week later (March 20) he was at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. It was a weekend he would rather forget as he failed to qualify and was only third alternate for the show. How things change in a week, as on March 27 he was low qualifier with a 5.54-258.62 at Bradenton for the IHRA Supernationals. Unfortunately, a first round 5.75 lost to Scott Kalitta's holeshot 5.77.

Notes: Jenner had nothing to do with this car. It was Ron Hodgson and Verhuel. The car was new in 80. Still the same setup as the 79 car and it was an Al Swindahl Chassis Components car. There were two cars. One stayed in Canada and was pulled around to shows. The other one was a national event car. When we ran the tour deal in the NW (Portland, Boise, Edmonton, Seattle), we ran both cars and got twice the money. Frank Hall usually drove the local car. Leon Lippoldt - crewmember

Notes: Tom debuted a new Daytona at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals. He had lots of problems and ended up losing two blowers, one in qualifying, and one in a first round loss against Del Worsham. He qualified #11 with a 5.39-269.92. He went to Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals where he ran 5.43-272.72 to qualify #10. He lost to Chuck Etchells in the first round. At the seventh NHRA race of the '92 season, he was in Ohio for the Springnationals where a 5.40-256.04 qualified #7. He picked up to a 5.33 at 255.97 to beat Jerry Caminito's 5.59-252 in the first round but in the second round he lost to Cruz Pedregon. He made the trip up north for the NHRA Grandnationals at the end of June. He qualified #7 with a 5.44-267.45 and a first round 5.55-249.03 beat a tire smoking Gary Densham. Once again, he lost to Pedregon in the second round. Tom's 5.46-256.04 finished second best to Cruz's 5.39-274. This started to become routine when at Englishtown for the NHRA Mopar Parts Nationals, he qualified #8 with a 5.33-264.62 and in round one beat Whit Bazemore's 5.56-263 with a 5.36-258.32. But once again in round two for the third straight race he came up against Pedregon. This time Hoover lost oil pressure on the line and shut off giving Cruz a solo into the semifinals. At Denver in the middle of July for the NHRA Mile High Nationals, Tom again made it into the second round. He had qualified #6 with a 5.44-257.28 and then improved to a 5.37-265.56 in the first round while beating Norm Wilding. But in the second round, his 5.57-229.06 lost to Al Hofmann's 5.41-262.

Notes: Photo from Columbus 1989. Also 5.193 NR at 3/89 Houston Supernationals and 5.172 NR at Indy 89. | Don's last season driving an FC. He started the year by qualifying #12 with a 5.47-261.39 at the Winternationals at Pomona. In the first round, a 5.50-263.92 lost to Bruce Larson's 5.32-259. At Houston for the Supernationals, he ran a 5.19 (Low ET) at 265.80 to qualify first. He lasted until round two when he smoked the tires and lost to Larson again. He qualified badly at the Gatornationals where a 5.52-261.09 was #15 on the list. He lost to Art Hendy in the first round. At the fourth NHRA event, the Southern Nationals in Atlanta, Don qualified #7 with a 5.50. He beat Scott Kalitta in round one and a 5.53-252.31 beat R.C. Sherman in round two. But another 5.53-250.62 lost to Mike Dunn's 5.48-263 in the semifinals. It was on to Memphis for the Mid-South Nationals and another semifinal finish. He had qualified #6 with a 5.38-266.74 and beat Sherman in round one and in round two, a 5.37-268 beat Art Hendey. In the semifinal, he should have won as his 5.39 was better than his opponent Mark Oswald's 5.41. But Oswald got him on the tree. He qualified first at the Cajun Nationals with a 5.38-264.55 and ran a first round solo when Sherman broke. He got one back from Larson in round two when his 5.44-261 beat Larson's 5.50. In the semifinals, both he and Dunn smoked the tires but Mike got the win. He qualified first again at National Trail with a 5.27-272.72 for the Springnationals. Unfortunately, he overpowered the track in the first round and smoked the tires to a loss against Tom Hoover. The next event was the Grandnationals in Canada. Prudhomme qualified #7 with a 5.57-257.51. In round one, a 5.72-256.99 beat Gary Densham's 5.79-242. He got another one over Larson in round two when Bruce broke. In the semifinals, a strong running Kenny Bernstein beat him with a 5.48-254 to Don's 5.73-231. The NHRA tour was at Englishtown for the ninth race of the season, the Summernationals. Prudhomme set a track record 5.27 in qualifying first. He was running good, making it into the semifinals against Bernstein before breaking just off the line in their semifinal race. At Denver, for the Mile High Nationals, Don helped save Don Gay Jr. in qualifying. Gay had hit the wall during a qualifying run and was knocked unconscious. The car continued down the track with the now bent in headers lighting the body on fire. It finally rolled to a stop but one of the pressurized fire bottles exploded, blowing the body into pieces. Gay was still unconscious. Prudhomme had been in the other lane on the run and he came to Gay's aid since he still had his fire suit on. He pulled Gay out of the car. In the actual race, the "Snake" qualified #12 with a 5.89-249.16 but lost to Ed McCulloch in the first round. Things went better at the next event, the California Nationals, where Don took his first win of the year. He set Low ET and Top Speed in qualifying first with a 5.30-276.49. In the first round, another 5.30-268.65 beat Kalitta. In round two a 5.38-268.73 beat Jim White and in the semifinals he beat John Force with a 5.35-268.09. He stayed consistent in the final with a 5.32-272.64 taking the title over Oswald's 5.36-274. Seattle International was the next stop for the Seafair Nationals. He qualified #2 with a 5.33-271.98 but set Low ET in the first round with a 5.29-271 over Tom Hoover. A second round 5.38-268.33 beat Force but a semifinal 5.40-263.77 lost to Bernstein's 5.34-276.

Notes: Pulde started his '81 season at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He qualified #8 with a 6.19-220.04 but went out before the finals. He did much better on March 8 at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet. Pulde qualified first with a 6.24-216.34 and in the first round, he beat a tire-smoking John Force with a 6.28-223.88. The Challenger had both front wheels off the track for most of the run in the second round, but his 6.68-217 still came out on top over Dennis Geisler's troubled 10.18. In the semifinal, he advanced with a 6.27 when Bob Pickett was shut off on the line with an oil leak. He took the victory in the final over Dale Armstrong with a 6.26-229. He had another good showing the following week (March 15) at the NHRA Gatornationals. A 6.04-233.16 qualified the "War Eagle" in the #8 spot. In the first round, he beat John Collins' wheelstanding Datsun with a 6.10. He ran an engine saving 13.94 in the second round when Armstrong was unable to run. In the semifinal, a 6.33-223.32 beat Tripp Shumake's 6.75-174. All looked well for another victory but Gordie Bonin stopped him with a 6.18-241 in the final. Dale ran 6.21-223.3 in a runner-up effort. On March 22 he was at Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals. Pulde made it into the semifinal of the eight car show before losing to Kenny Bernstein. Dale won the NHRA Eastern Regional on May 3 at Raceway Park. He beat Tim Grose in the final with a 6.02 (Low ET). At the NHRA Springnationals in June, a 6.25-216.34 qualified #15 and he lost to Roy Harris in the first round. He qualified #15 again at the next NHRA show he attended, the Summernationals at Englishtown. This time, he got the spot with a 6.20-231.95. In the first round, he got around a tire smoking Gary Burgin with a 6.14-234.37. But in the second round, he shut down to a 10.16 loss to Don Prudhomme. Pulde was at the IHRA Summernationals at Bristol in July. He qualified #5 in the eight-car show, but in the first round he met up with low qualifier Billy Meyer and smoked the tires and lost. Dale ran a 5.97 in qualifying for the NHRA U.S. Nationals and it only placed him #5 in the tough field. He lasted until the second round where he ran a 6.15 that lost to Raymond Beadle's 5.92 in the "Blue Max." It was back to Bristol on Sept 13 for the IHRA U.S. Open. Dale qualified #3 in the eight-car show and in the first round beat Al Segrini with a 6.11-235.60 to the "Super Brut's" 6.29-219. In the semifinal, he smoked the tires to a 12.73 and lost to Paul Smith driving the "Entertainer." Fremont hosted the NHRA Golden Gate Nationals on Oct 4 and Pulde set Low ET in qualifying first with a 5.94-227.84. An off pace first round 6.34-229.00 lost to Burgin's 6.09-229. He closed out the NHRA season by qualifying #4 with a 6.01-234.98 at OCIR on Oct 18 for the World Finals. Dale lasted until the semifinals before smoking the tires to a 6.92-154.10 loss to Jim Dunn's 6.06-238. At the OCIR Manufacturer's Meet, Dale ran well, but to reach the final you had to have one of the two lowest ETs after three rounds of racing. He didn't get into the final but he turned some good times. A 6.16-226.70 beat Gary Densham and in his third race, a 6.10-237.46 beat Tim Grose. All in all, it was a good season for the "War Eagle" team.
