Notes: Car ran 6.16 under the Care-Free banner. Also 6.23 at NHRA Summers and 231.95. The 6.01, 235 was at a Lebanon Valley match race. Photo taken at the 1974 NHRA Springnationals, National Trail Raceway, Columbus, Ohio. Prudhomme drove this car to FC win at '74 Gators, was upset by Snow at Springs, and defeated Billy Meyer at Indy for back to back Indy FC wins. | Regarding Prudhomme at Lebanon Valley in '74. I wasn't there the August night he ran 6.01. I was there a month earlier when he ran 6.16, which was quicker than the national record by a few hundredths, as I recall. So everyone was talking about the great ETs at Lebanon (Mineo had run in the 6.20s with the Coke Circuit that year -- unheard of numbers for him). But then in '75, Prudhomme's Monza could not go below 6.40. He never ran a 6.0 ET there again, not with his Monzas, not with his Arrows (he did run in the 'twenties' with the Arrow, maybe the 'teens' once or twice). I asked Tommy Ivo about it and he said that back in 1974 the track's starting line beams were positioned too high for FCs and the cars were staging with their fenders and the clocks weren't starting until after the entire car had left the line and cleared the beams. I don't know if or how this is true, but it's what Ivo told me. A lot of the northeast FC racers were not aware of this explanation, so I don't know why Ivo had the dirt and the others didn't. - David Hapgood

Notes: Custom piece. Rear engine futuristic funny car. Car was based on AMT's anticipated entry into the world of small mass produced cars for the public. Basically a kit car was planned, but it never got off the ground, beyond the Piranha prototype. In essence, the car was a Catch 22 -- too radical to be deemed a funnycar, and too slow as a top fuel dragster. The car was ill handling. Astute match racers would rely on their water cooled entries to burn the car down, resulting in its loss. However, when all went well, no flopper, even the Nicholson Comet could touch it. Per Chris Martin, Walt Stevens went a confirmed 8.71, 187 at Irwindale. Also 182.64 per Drag News. Was the 8.295 Walt or Connie Swingle (who did run an 8.29 in October 1966).

Notes: Bill Lawton was Rhode Island's most successful funny car driver in the sixties. Teamed with Tasca Ford and tuner John Healey, Lawton won many races in the Super Stock, Factory experimental, and Funny Car classes. Lawton's biggest win came at the 1965 NHRA Winternationals where he won Factory experimental. The win came in the "Mystery 8, " so dubbed for the goal of running an eight-second time. Bill continued to race with Tasca until the "Mystery 7." Tasca left drag racing at the same time the Ford Motor Company did. Lawton continued to race funny cars on his own. Tasca returned to drag racing in the new century with an associate sponsorship for John Force. Tasca also raced a TA/FC with his son, dubbed the "Mystery 5." The photo shows the '67 Logghe built Mustang, still running an injected SOHC 427 but the car would soon have a blower like the majority of the fuel funny cars. (Photo courtesy Drag Racing Memories) |On July 14, at Connecticut, Lawton ran 189.06 in a match race against Dick Bourgeous. The speed was a track record. - Ron Howard

Notes: Won NHRA Winters with 5.69 at 256. Controversial first 5.40 run at NED one week after Gainesville. Roland Leong witnessed and said it was a monster. Won $50,000 payday at IHRA Bristol. Tim also tried combo that had header pipes exiting top hood area directly in front of body A posts at outside edges of windshield. Benefit: all kinds of downforce. Problem: Absolutely blinded by header flames when dark at all outside. Photo from Indy 1986. Ran same paint scheme with Skoal Bandit, Dan Young Chevy, and blank side panels in '86. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9.

Notes: World champion in 1976. Also 6.02 at Winters. Both 6.02 and 5.97 were national records (the 5.98 at Ontario 75 was not backed up). Went 235.60 at Sanair 76. Where was the 247 run? 6.24 Gainesville Dragway Track record. Won 7 of 8 NHRA National events in '76, only loss was to Burgin at Indy. Great article on HotRod.com with Snake describing his performance advantage over the rest of the FC field in '75 and '76.

Notes: Jim set the Irwindale track record at 6.95 in November 1970 (broken by Prudhomme with a 6.92 in December 1970). Need to confirm it was in the funny car and not the dragster. Qualified number two (to Prudhomme's 7.044, 200) at Ontario 11-21-70 with a 7.045, 194.38.

Notes: After wrecking his primary car at Virginia Beach, Grove ran his '67 Mustang until he totaled it as well. So he used Ed Schartman's back-up Comet and stuffed one of his potent cammers in it. On Sept 1st at Minnesota Dragways for an eight car event, Tom drove this car to a first round, low ET of the meet, 7.62-191.88 over Dick Loehr (8.02-175.43). In the semis, he ran a 7.72-191.48 over a fouling Roger Lindamood (7.80-191.88). In the final, a 7.71-191.08 beat Pat Minick's 8.12-181.44 in the Chi-Town Hustler 'Cuda. - Ron Howard

Notes: This Corvair would have been Ralph Nader's worst nightmare if he had seen it. Michigander Pete Seaton was one of the first match bash funny car racers. The "Seaton's Super Shaker" '67 Corvair was in fact his fourth funny car. The new Chevy was built by the Logghe Bros. at their Logghe Stamping Company. A 427 Chevrolet Semi-Hemi powered the car and was backed by a Torqueflite transmission. Terry Hedrick was chosen to drive the wild Corvair. Hedrick's seat of the pants driving style was awe inspiring to the funny car fans of the sixties. The Corvair garnered many wins while touring the country in 1967 and 1968. Terry won one day and was runner up the next at the 1967 AHRA Drag World Super Stock Championships at Wichita, Kansas. Was this Corvair unsafe at any speed? Nah. (Stats courtesy Dennis Doubleday, Bill Duke, and James Ibusuki). - BS |He started the season at Irwindale for the New Year's Day Meet where he qualified first with a 8.01.A first round 8.03 advanced him past a fouling Marv Eldridge.He made it past the next two rounds to meet Don Nicholson in the final.A 8.04 by Nicholson put Terry in the runner-up spot.On Jan 14 for OCIR's eight-car show,Hedrick qualified third with a 8.24-170.77.A first round 8.28-182.18 beat Dick Loehr's 8.43-168.But in the semi's he was shut off on the line with a fuel leak.On Feb 25 he raced a best two-out-of-three at OCIR against Nicholson.Don's 8.03-166 and 7.97-172 beat Terry's 8.39-176.12 and 8.36-178.21.He did win the last race with a 8.29-178.57 over Nicholson's shut-off 13.21 but Don won the match.On May 10 at Union Grove's Night Funny Car Championships he failed to win but he did set low et at 7.80.At Pittsburgh,in May, Terry set both ends of the track record with a 7.84-180.36 while winning the Pittsburg Funny Car Championships over Jim Liberman.A final round 7.92 beat Jim's quicker 7.88.At Minneapolis on Sept 1 a first round 7.89-180.36 was wasted when he fouled against Pat Minick(9.00)in the first round.He lost in the first round again at Suffolk for a eight car show when he got crossed up against Mel Perry. - Ron Howard

Notes: Armstrong followed the path least travelled by relying on a strong-running 352" smallblock Chevy for power. He claimed to never deviate from a diet of 20 percent nitro (in alky). The combo was good enough to set low qualifying time (8.33) for funnies at the AHRA Championship at Lions in late July 1966. -- RT | Armstrong ran this car three different ways in 1966: injected fuel, blown fuel coupe, and blown fuel as a roadster, pictured here. This is the car he ran in 1965. In 1967, he stretched the now roofless Chevy II. In 1968, the car was run by Ron Lorenz and John Wright. -- DD

Notes: Comet roadster with cammer, C-6 combo. Jack Chrisman got one of four original Logghe built Comets in 1966. Jack took his proven blown 427 SOHC out of the Chrisman Comet to run in the new flip top car, unlike Nicholson and Schartman, who ran injected cammers. In 1966, it seemed that the four lightweight Comets dominated the funny car competition like no other cars. Car burned to the ground at New York National mid-1966. Bought old Comet back from Dee Keaton to finish season. Chrisman ran a quickest-ever 8.71 and 184 mph at Riverside during the year. Need to confirm which combo ran that number.

Notes: SOHC Ford, C-6 auto trans. Ran 7.35 at Detroit Dragway vs. Walt Knoch. Dyno Don's '68 Logghe car, trick Shedlik paint job. Don't remember the 7.35 but he did run a 7.48 early in the year at Milan. Also, Don was runner up to Paul Stage's AA/C in Super Eliminator (pre-Funny Car Eliminator) at '68 Indy Nationals. -- DW | Nicholson's early season '68 car was destroyed in late July in a collision on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Carlisle, according to the 7-26-68 edition of Drag Times. Crewmembers Jim Campbell and Wally English were returning Nicholson's car to Detroit following the Super Stock Nationals. The impact threw the Cougar over the cab and onto the roadway, demolishing it. English was killed in the collision; Campbell injured but recovered. -- RT | RT | The Cougar debuted at a match race against Jim Liberman at Capitol. Don lost two transmissions and the match when Jim strapped a 7.66-187.88 on him in the first race and rain kept the next two rounds from being run. - Ron Howard

Notes: The Little Hoss series started as an Eddie Pauling driven, Bakersfield winning (where they ran a string of 6.0s!) Monza in 77. Car tossed the body in winning the final round, reemerged several weeks later as the familiar Arrow. Ran the second five in the sport, 5.973 at Irwindale's 64 Funny Cars show, but that run is not recognized by the official Five Second Club.

Notes: 1979 first championship for Raymond. 2 wins and 3 RU's. Photo taken at Byron's MFM. Need to confirm that Ray ran these times in 1979 because he ran confirmed identical times in 1980. 5.99 Indy US Nationals 9-79
