Notes: Toured England this year, too. Beadle started the season at Pomona by qualifying #3 with a 6.06-243.90. He went into a wheelstand in the first round and shut off giving Ron Colson the win in the "Hawaiian." Baton Rouge hosted the NHRA Division Four Opener on March 9 and the "Blue Max" ran low ET and top speed in the final with a 6.24-233.76 to take the win over Billy Meyer's close 6.27-230. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #8 and in the first round he beat Tom McEwen with a 5.99-238.09. In the second round, a 6.06-227.27 beat Tom Hoover's 6.12-233. In the semifinals, a 6.11-207.85 beat Tom Ridings' 6.46-180 in Joe Pisano's car. This put him in the final against Don Prudhomme who had just run 5.93 in the other semifinal race. Beadle tried hard in the final, but his 6.17-231.95 was only good enough for the runner-up spot to the "Snake's" 5.98-238. He went to Darlington the following week (March 23) and cleaned up. The only thing he didn't get was the pole. He qualified #2 with a 6.42 in the eight car field. A first round 6.28 beat a tire smoking Gary Burgin and in the semifinals, a 6.29 beat John Force. In the final, he met Dale Pulde. Raymond capped off the weekend by running Low ET and top speed with a 6.06-237.46 to win the event. He won the second NHRA Division Four race at Green Valley on March 30.

Notes: Also 6.77 at New England Dragway, October 11, 1971. | He crossed the country to race at Fremont in late October 71 (6.75). Also 203 at Epping 71. | Best 1971 times thanks to Dennis Doubleday. | Lew got a new car after running the same Firebird in '68, '69 and '70. He also changed engines from the early 392 Hemi to the newer 426 style Hemi. He must have taken a liking to the new Mustang as not only did the sleek body cloak his chassis he also went through the added effort of welding up a pair of valve covers to look like he was running a Boss 429 Ford engine. In April, Lew faced Jim Liberman in a best of three match race at Connecticut. Liberman won the first race with a 7.19-197 over Lew's 7.32-195.65. In the second race, Liberman went into a wheelstand and shut off giving "Brutus" the win at 7.17-196.50. In the final race, Jim was unable to run due to a blown transmission, so Arrington soloed for the match race win. He set a 7.02 track record at 203.61 on the final pass. He was at the Super Stock Nationals on May 9 at York U.S. 30 but a first round 7.35-208.33 lost to eventual winner Gene Snow's 6.88-199. He was runner-up to Jake Johnston at Atco for the CARS Magazine Meet.

In round two, he advanced when Frank Hawley and severe tire shake and crossed the centerline in the "Chi-Town Hustler." In the semifinals, a 5.95-241.93 beat a tire smoking 6.97 by Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" car. His final round 6.03-247.93 finished second best to Al Segrini's 5.96-234. He set Low ET in qualifying first at the NHRA Gatornationals with a 5.78-238.72. Unfortunately, he blew a motor in the first round and his 6.79-142 lost to John Force's tire smoking 6.55-245. At Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals, he qualified #4. A first round 5.94-241.28 beat John Collins and he got past the second round to face Billy Meyer in the semis. There, a 5.99-243.90 lost to eventual winner Meyer's 5.88-247. He qualified for the tough eight car show at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. That was good; what was bad was that he qualified in the #5 spot, setting up a first round meeting with low qualifier Oswald, which Grose lost. The next NHRA event was the Springnationals on June 10. Tim qualified #6 with a 5.90-247.25. He fouled in the first round against Gary Southern. Grose then went to Martin, Michigan, for the PHR Championships. A 6.01 qualified #6. He lasted until the second round before losing to Dale Pulde. Up in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals, he qualified #5 with a 5.87-253.52 but failed to reach the finals. The Summernationals at Englishtown was NHRA's next stop and once again Tim qualified easily, running a 5.81 for the #7 spot in the show. He beat Dale Barlet in the first round but smoked the tires in round two and lost to Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max."

Notes: Conway qualified seventh with a 7.95 at the PDA Championships at OCIR on July 19 and he improved to a 7.79 in the second round before losing to Dave Beebe in the semis. At the OCIR Anniversary Race on Aug 9, Conway lost in the first round with an off-pace 8.18-139.53. His times were improving with a 7.64-185.36 run on Aug 16 at Irwindale. He competed at the Drag News Nationals at Lions on August 30 but was having handling problems with the car. He lost in the first round to Jim Adolph's 8.13-167 when the car again refused to go straight and slowed to an 11.65-67.97. On Sept 1, Irwindale held an eight car show and Gene qualified first with a 7.67. He set Top Speed in the first round when his 7.76-194.38 lost to Ray Alley's Low ET of the meet 7.58-190. Fortunately for Gene, Alley broke and he was reinstated but it did him little good as the Corvette broke a rear in the semifinals. The car was then running mid pack, losing early on Sept 6 at OCIR with a 7.88 best and failing to qualify on Sept 21 at Irwindale. Gene turned it up a notch, cracking a 7.40-184.80 at Lions on Oct 25 for the East-West Championships. Back at OCIR for the Manufacturer's meet, Conway qualified with a 7.69 and won his first race with a 7.67-191.08. A semifinal finish and a 7.55-198.66 best came next at Irwindale's big 32-car show on Nov 23. The car almost caught the Corvette curse at Lions the following week on Nov 29, when it caught fire on the line in round one. Yet on Dec 6, Conway returned to OCIR to run his best time of 7.37-181.08. He broke in the semifinal. He went back to Irwindale on Dec 14, where he failed to qualify.

Notes: Successor to Lenarth-Wolford's "Secret Weapon" Jeep. Aiming to circumvent the NHRA's "no roadster" rule for AA/FC, Lenarth based the 120", aluminum-bodied funny on the convertible Jeep Commando. Initially ran direct-drive but went to two-speed trans late in year. Four-page feature in 10/69 DRM. -- RT | On March 22 at Lions, 22 cars showed for an eight-car field and Ed's Jeep just got in with an 8.19 on the bump. A first round 10.81 advanced over a troubled Ronnie Runyan but against Ron O'Donnell in the semis he lost a motor and watched Ron's 7.88-189 advance. At a sixteen car race at Irwindale on April 26, Ed again made it into the semis beating Dale Armstrong (8.29-170) in the Travelin Javelin with an 8.20-185.18 and a second round 8.26-177.86 over Steve Bovan's Mister T Camaro (8.93-175.09). In the semifinal against Mike Van Sant's Invader, he smoked the tires and lost while Mike ran 7.71-191 to win. At Lions on May 10 for an eight car race, Ed qualified seventh then put a big holeshot on Runyan for a first round win. He lost in the semis. Ron Leslie beat Lenarth's Jeep in the first round on May 30 at Irwindale for another eight car show. The next day (May 31) at OCIR for the FC 500, Ed qualified last in the sixteen car field at 8.42 and he fouled against Leslie in the first round. At the OCIR Benefit race on June 14, Ed qualified fifth with an 8.02 but Gary Gabelich's 8.26-187 in the Beach City Corvette beat him in round one. At the AHRA Grand American Championships at Lions on June 21, he again lost in the first round with an 8.06-178 losing to Van Sant's 7.84-170. It was getting harder and harder to make a brick fly but Ed was determined so on June 28 at an eight car show at Lions he qualified sixth with an 8.00 and again lost to Van Sant in the first round. Mike's 7.63-196.07 in the Invader beat Ed's 7.93-185.18. OCIR held its Nitro Championships on July 5 and Ed qualified fourteenth but fouled against Larry Fullerton in round one. On July 19 at OCIR for the PDA Championships, Ed's 8.32 qualified thirteenth but Gas Ronda's 7.92 beat his 8.15 in the first round. On July 26 at Irwindale against Bob Smith in Tom Sturm's Corvair he lost a blower belt and the race. On Aug 2 at an eight-car show at Lions, he again lost in round one but his losing time was a much-improved 7.75-194.80. Gary Gabelich's 7.56-178.57 beat him. On Aug 9, he ran a first round 7.75-179 over Gene Conway (8.18-139.53), and a best ever of 7.67-187.11 over Bob Smith (8.02-157.89) to make it into the final against Dave Beebe at the OCIR Anniversary race. In the final the Jeep broke and Beebe ran an uncontested 7.61-197.36 in John Mazmanian's 'Cuda for the win. Back at Irwindale for a sixteen car meet on Aug 16, Ed's first round 7.87-165.44 beat Rusty Delling (7.92-167.39) but he fouled against Gabelich in round two. At Lions on Aug 30 for the Drag News Nationals, Ed ran a 7.74-186.33 over Ray Alley's 8.40 in the first round but the Jeep broke and couldn't be repaired in time for the second round and Alley was reinstated. And it did fly. On Sept 6, he qualified third at OCIR for an eight car race and a best ever 7.52-182.55, good for Low ET of the meet, beat Fullerton in the first round. A 7.65-171.10 beat Bob Smith in the semis and when Mike Van Sant's Invader burned enough that it couldn't appear in the final a reinstated Smith faced the Holy Toledo for the money. There Ed ran a 7.80-166.05 to pick up the win. Just prior to a Lions FC race on Sept 13, Ed installed a two-speed transmission in the Jeep. At that event, he failed to qualify in the top eight but they held a bracket two funny car race for cars that had failed to qualify in the top eight. He won that bracket by running a 7.74-168.22 and a 7.66-184.04 in the first two races. In the final, a 7.75-182.55 won over a crossed up Gervase O'Neil in the King Rat. At Irwindale on Sept 21 for an eight-car show, Ed qualified fifth with a 7.88 but lost to Gas Ronda's 7.72-193.54 in the first round. Another first round loss came on Oct 11 when he fouled against Don Schumacher at the OCIR FC Invitational. On Oct 25 at Lions for the East/West Championships, Ed ran a great 7.37-197.36 in the first round to beat Gene Snow (7.50-148.51) but broke on the line in round two. On Nov 2 he qualified fourth on the wacky racers team with a 7.63 at the OCIR Manufacturers' meet. Ed fouled away a 7.74 in his first race and slept late on the line against Marv Eldridge in round two when Marv's 8.01 beat his 7.59-191.08. He won his third race when Dale Armstrong crossed the centerline. On Nov 23, Irwindale held a 32 car show and Frank Pisano's 7.65-192.70 beat Lenarth in the first round. On Dec 6, OCIR held an eight car show and qualifying was tough. Ed ran a 7.76 and it was only good enough for sixth alternate as Frank Pisano was on the bump with a 7.51-195.65 in his Corvair. -- RH
