Notes: his was one of the original four Mercury Comets built by the Logghe Brothers. Nicholson, Chrisman and Kenz & Leslie got the other three. Injected 427 SOHC, C-6 automatic combo. Set both ends of the S/XS national record at 8.61 and 172.72 mph at Tulsa World Finals and bettered that by better than three-tenths at Indy. -- DW | The 1966 NHRA Nationals at Indy were the first to feature dedicated classes for funny cars: S/XS, A/XS, B, XS. Supercharged Experimental Stock was where the blown cars and class-dominating (but normally aspirated) Logghe Comets went to play. Schartman and his yellow RSE Merc clinched the S/XS trophy with an 8.28-174.41 blast. Since the NHRA had not yet established a formal Funny Car Eliminator, the class runs for S/XS were the closest thing the fans were going to get. -- RT | Listed in FUELFC due to its lightweight, flip top configuration despite being injected.

Notes: Photo from Columbus 1989. Tom started the '89 season by qualifying #9 with a 5.42-268.73 at Pomona for the Winternationals. He faced low qualifier John Force in the first round and beat him with a 5.39-260.11 to Force's 5.46-275. In the second round be lost to Kenny Bernstein. At the next event, the Supernationals at Houston, he qualified #10 with a 5.43-264.23 and once again met Force in the first round. Again Hoover stepped up with a 5.36 beating John in the first round for the second straight race. Unfortunately, just like at the first event, Hoover lost in round two. This time he smoked the tires and shut off giving Scott Kalitta an easy (7.60-150) victory. At the Gatornationals, he again qualified #10 with a 5.45-264.16 getting the spot. He lost to Bruce Larson in the first round. At the fourth race of the season, the Southern Nationals, he qualified #6 with a 5.49-244.75. He beat Chuck Etchells in the first round but lost to Force in round two. It was on to Memphis for the Mid South Nationals where a 5.36-264.78 qualified #5. He beat John Martin in the first round but then smoked the tires in round two and lost to Bernstein. At the Cajun Nationals, he lost in the first round after qualifying #11 with a 5.57-263.15. Things went much better at the Springnationals. He qualified in the dreaded #9 spot with a 5.44-252.66 setting up a first round meeting with low qualifier Don Prudhomme. In that race, Don overpowered the track and smoked the tires while Hoover hustled (?) to a 5.67-183 win. In the second round, he faced Mark Oswald. Mark broke after his burnout and Tom ran a 12.00-67 for the win. In the semifinals, Jim White smoked the tires and a 5.55-242 got Tom into the final. His luck ran out in the final when Larson's 5.42-275 dropped the Firebird's smokey 6.79-135.89. The tour then traveled to Canada for the Grandnationals. A 5.54-256.77 qualified #5 and he beat Jerry Caminito in the first round with a 5.57-251.18. In the second round, Bernstein's 5.47-270 beat Tom's 5.68-211.29. The ninth race on the NHRA schedule was the Summernationals at Englishtown. Hoover ran a 5.38 to qualify #5 and he beat Etchells in the first round. In the second round he got out of shape just off the line and lost to Prudhomme. His dad, George Hoover, showed that he could tune a car in the thin air of Denver for the next race, the Mile High Nationals. He ran a 5.76-248.61 in qualifying #8, even out qualifying Prudhomme. In the first round be beat Gary Ritter but in round two he lost to Ed McCulloch.

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 semi-finals, 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.

Notes: This was one of the first five funny's to top 200 mph. Making a lot of horsepower to push that big frontal area to those speeds. Sid debuted this car for some test runs at Memphis on August 17. The car had just been finished earlier that week. With some old slicks on the car the ET's weren't the best but on the second pass he ran 174 and on his last of three runs he turned 179.64. This was on a 184 track record. Best et in '68 was a 7.51. Confirmed 7.76 Jackson Sid raced at an eight car show at New York on Oct 13. He singled in the first round when Ken Poffenberger failed to fire, and another single run of 7.88 got him into the final when Al Hanna was unable to show. In the final, a 7.89 finished second best to Henry Garcia's 7.73 in the Car Shop Camaro. -- RH | Photo from the '68 OCIR mfg. meet. Ran 7.80s.

Notes: Won three straight weekends at Lions and set a track record at 6.63. This car didn't get the recognition it deserved, beating a lot of the "name" drivers at the time. Stan ran at Irwindale's New Year's Day FC Festival to start the season. He qualified #6 in the sixteen car show with a 7.28. In the first round, he beat Mert Littlefield with a 7.54-189.06. In round two, he got past a motor blowing Ron O'Donnell and in the semifinals, he beat Gene Conway but blew his engine doing it and was unable to make the final. He was at OCIR for the first All-Pro event where he beat Conway in the first round with a 7.10-204.54. Unfortunately, he fouled against Jim Dunn in the semifinals. Lions hosted the AHRA Grand American on Jan 10 and Shiroma made it to the final. He ran a 7.71 over Dick Harrell's Vega and a 7.12 beat Larry Arnold in round two. A semifinal 7.55 beat a tire-smoking Dunn and advanced him into the final against Gene Snow. The 'Cuda lost fire on the line and Snow singled for the win. At Pomona for the Winternationals. Stan qualified #6 with a 7.17. In the first round, he advanced with a 7.19-205.47 when Don Prudhomme broke. He lost in round two. At the Bakersfield March Meet, he lost in the second round to Dunn. Still, in March, he raced at an eight car show at OCIR. He lost to John Lombardo in the first round. On March 20 he was at Irwindale for the "Potpourri" race. He set low ET at 7.17 but failed to make the finals. He was back at OCIR for the final All-Pro race on March 27. He ran a strong 6.95-211.76 over Conway in round one but in round two he lost to Dave Beebe. The "Skulker" caught fire on the run but Stan was OK. He was back in business in April at an eight car show at Lions. A first round 7.05-189.47 beat Wendell Shipman and in the semifinals, a good 7.00-208.33 lost to Dunn's better 6.92-194. At the OCIR "Hang Ten" FC race, Stan ran a 7.11-189.87 in the first round over Densham's 7.24. In round two a 6.94-213.27 beat Bob Hawkins but he lost to Rich Siroonian in the semifinals.

Notes: On Oct 11, OCIR held an FC Open and after driving Tom Sturm's Corvair for most of the year, Bob showed up behind the wheel of this car. A blown trans in the first round gave Frank Pisano a single. The following weekend (Oct 18) was much better. At Lions for a Coca Cola Cavalcade event, Bob ran a first round 7.41-183.67 over Fred Goeske's 7.84 and a second round 7.28-196.07 (top speed of meet) over Ken Safford's 7.95 in the Stone, Woods and Cook Mustang. In the final he set low ET at 7.26-193.13 but fouled it away with Kelly Chadwick taking the win with an 8.06-138.46. At the Lions East/West meet on Oct 25, Bob ran a first round 7.29-200.44 but still lost to Pat Minick's 7.24-199.55. -- RH

Notes: Early in '69, until the Danny Ongais-Mickey Thompson combo jelled, there were calling Rich Siroonian the killer of the funny cars. He started the year like most other FC drivers at the Irwindale New Year's Day meet where he qualified second with a 7.62. He got crossed-up in the first round and lost to Norm Weekly's 8.10-192. Another first round loss came at the AHRA Winternationals where Dave Beebe got him in the first round. At Pomona on Feb 2 for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified #6 with an 8.22-185.11 and a first round 8.45 beat Ed Schartman's quicker 8.39. In the second round, an 8.10 beat Don Schumacher's 8.12. But in the semifinal, both he and Ray Alley ran 8.27's with Alley winning. He won the second OCIR All-Pro race on Feb 9 after qualifying #2 with a 7.47-196.50 (top speed) . In the final, he met and defeated Schumacher with a 7.39-195.22. Another win came at an eight car show at Lions on Feb 22. He ran 7.71-188.28 in the semifinal over Jim Liberman's 7.82 and in the final a 7.70-189.07 beat Alley. At Bakersfield on March 2, a 7.73 qualified Siroonian #2, and after two easy round wins (8.50-181 and 8.23-189) he met Ongais in the final. Danny ran a 7.56-193 low et of the meet to stop Rich's 7.74-192.71. At Riverside on March 16 for the HRM Championships, a 7.73 qualified Rich #5 and he beat Rusty Dellings in the first round with a speed of 191.89 he broke and could not make the second round. On March 29 for the final OCIR All-Pro event, he ran a first round 7.62-193.80 over Gordon Mineo but Charlie Allen's 7.62-191 stopped his 7.68-192.70 in the semi's. Irwindale held an eight car show on April 13 and a 7.58-191.88 (top speed) qualified the 'Cuda #2. Mike Van Sant fouled against him in the first round and Rich still ran a 7.64-190.66. In the semifinal, against Steve Bovan it was his turn to foul. On May 3 at the OCIR Manufacturer's FC Open he qualified #1 for the Mopar team with a 7.68-190.26. Ongais' 7.55-192 beat his 7.61-194.80 in the first race and not only did he foul in his second race against Jim Ward's Javelin but he blew his trans as well. In his third race, an 8.71-168.53 beat Mike Van Sant. For the title, it was Ongais against Siroonian but the 'Cuda broke and Danny's 7.88-188 won. On May 10, Lion's held an eight car show and Rich's 7.70 (low et) qualified #1. He singled with a 7.71-189.43 in the first round but lost in the semifinal. Another win came his way on May 17 over an eight car field at Irwindale on May 17. A first round 7.74-192.30 beat Randy Walls' 7.81-180 and a semifinal 7.70-195.22 beat Johnny Wright's ailing Corvette. In the final, Rich's 7.79-190.26 beat Dave Beebe's quicker 7.77-196. Shortly after this, the car was revamped with a Keith Black 426 installed farther back in the chassis, replacing the 392.
