Notes: Indy 6.02 was Low ET of the Meet. Lost to Richard Rogers due to tire shake in the semis. | After a great '76 season, Burgin was hoping for more success in '77. Gary qualified #7 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He beat Dale Pulde in the second round to face Don Prudhomme in the semifinals. Burgin had trouble and his new Monza caught fire on the line while eventual winner Prudhomme headed for the final with a 6.29-216 solo. The damage was lite and Gary showed at the NHRA Gatornationals, where he qualified #5. In the second round he got out of shape and lost to Gordie Bonin. He won the Olympics of Drag Racing event in May, beating Prudhomme in the final with a 6.17-233.16. At Columbus, Ohio, for the NHRA Springnationals, he qualified on the pole with a 6.10-236.84 (low ET and top speed). Unfortunately, he lost to Bonin in the first round. He was runner-up to Tom Hoover at a Memorial Weekend FC race at Martin, Mich. He qualified #3 at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals with a 6.17-234.98. He lost to Hoover in the second round when he smoked the tires and shut off. A week later (July 24), he was at Milan for the IHRA Northern Nationals. It was good to see him back on the IHRA tour as he hadn't run any IHRA events in '77 up until Milan. Gary must have been glad to be back as well as he won the race and set a new IHRA record of 6.08. He qualified #3 with a 6.28 in the eight car field. Burgin beat Jim Pryor in Jim Naramore's car in the first round then stepped up to a 6.13 in the semifinals to beat Tom McEwen's quicker 6.11. In the final, he took the victory with his 6.08 beating Dale Pulde's right there 6.09. On Aug 4 he was back at Englishtown for its FC Race of Champions event. All cars ran two runs with the two lowest ETs meeting in the final. Gary won his first race with a 6.43-218 that was low ET of the first round over Al Hanna in the "Eastern Raider." But in the second race, he fouled and shut off. Two other cars bettered his 6.43 and Burgin failed to reach the final. He was up North in Canada a few days later on Aug 7 for the NHRA Grandnationals. It was another eight car field and his 6.31-230.76 qualified #3. He advanced past the first round with a solo 6.30 when Tim Kushi's Vega failed to fire but in the second round, he had a fuel pump break and he lost to Prudhomme. Another win came a week later on Aug 14 at Martin, Michigan's U.S. 131 for the PHR Championships. All cars ran a first round race with the eight lowest ETs regardless of winning or losing advancing into round two. Gary's first round 6.44 lost to Ron Colson's 6.40 in the "Hawaiian," but his ET qualified for the show. In the second round, he ran 6.18 to beat Prudhomme and in the semifinals, a 6.23-234 beat recent Grandnationals winner Tom Hoover. In the final, he grabbed the victory when Pulde had problems and slowed to a 15.22 while Gary ran 6.61-231.36 to win. At Indianapolis for the NHRA U.S. Nationals, almost 40 cars fought for the sixteen spots available. Burgin qualified #2 behind Prudhomme with a 6.07-238.09. He set low ET of the meet in the first round with a 6.02 at 237 that beat John Lombardo's 6.59. In round two, a 6.08-236 beat Tom McEwen's 6.24-233. But he was not going to repeat as the winner when in the semifinals, his parachute deployed on his run and his 'chute pulling 8.18-92 lost to Richard Rogers' 6.54-216 in Jim Green's "Green Elephant." That was a tough loss. Gary did not attend the NHRA Fallnationals but he was at Ontario Motor Speedway for the NHRA World Finals where he qualified on the pole with a 6.04-241.93 (low ET and top speed), but he lost early. As the season was coming to a close, he won the Governor's Cup FC race at Sacramento over Ed McCulloch with his 6.20 getting the win over the "Ace's" 6.25.

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. Ran 5.99 at Indy U.S. Nationals 9/79. | Beadle started the season by qualifying first at Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals. The team made in into the semifinals before losing to Gary Burgin. At the NHRA Winternationals, they again qualified first. This time with a 6.07 that held up for Low ET. Beadle then ran 6.18, 6.17, and a 6.27 to reach the final to run Tom Hoover. Unfortunately, Raymond smoked the tires and lost to Hoover's 6.29. The "Blue Max" qualified well at the next NHRA race, the Gatornationals, where a 6.18 qualified #2. Beadle's best run in eliminations was a first round 6.21 but in round two a 6.69-226 beat Ron Colson in the "Hawaiian" in a twin tire smoker. In the semifinals, the "Max" broke giving Gordie Bonin a free ride into the finals. The team then went to Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals where a 6.05-240.00 (Low ET & Top Speed) qualified first. But in round one, Beadle smoked the tires to a 7.01 loss against Dale Pulde's 6.32. Things went more their way at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. There Beadle qualified first in the eight car show with a 6.13. A first round 6.17 advanced when Frank Oglesby broke and in the semifinals, a 6.16-233.16 beat Shirl Greer. In the finals, he unloaded a 6.09-238.09 (Low ET & Top Speed) for the win over Paul Smith's runner up 6.37-190. The NHRA Cajun Nationals featured an eight car field as well. Beadle qualified #2 with a 6.30-234.37. He beat Hoover's 6.44-223 in the first round with a 6.37-229.00 but in the semifinals, a bad coil wire kept the "Max" from firing and John Force got a free ride into the final. Raymond made it into the finals at the NHRA Springnationals. He qualified #2 and made his way to the semifinals where opponent Colson broke on the line. He faced Burgin in the final but his 6.69-207.37 was only good enough for the runner-up spot to Gary's 6.49-239. From there the team went to Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. Once again Beadle qualified #2, this time with a 6.18-234.98. A first round 6.37 beat Pete Williams' 6.61 in the "Chi-Town Hustler" but a semifinal 6.87 lost to Pulde's 6.49. At Denver for the NHRA Mile High Nationals in late June, Ray qualified #7 in the eight car field and then ran a great 6.31 in the first round over Simon Menzies. He made it into the final where he faced Billy Meyer. The "Blue Max" slowed to an off pace 6.86 to take the runner-up spot to Meyer's 6.51. Beadle took a win at the NHRA Summernationals at Englishtown on July 15. He qualified #4 in the show with a 6.18-230.76. He beat Meyer in the first round with a 6.17 and a second round 6.09-233.16 beat Pulde's 6.11-236. In the semifinals, Raymond's 6.18-235 beat Tripp Shumake in Johnny Loper's car. In the final he ran Force's Corvette. Beadle's 6.37-232.55 took the victory over John's 6.46-212.

Notes: Photo from Indy 1986. Also ran 265 at IHRA Bristol. Won 1986 IHRA championship. Confirmed 5.619 at 86 Chiefs at Ennis. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. | One of the biggest surprises at the NHRA Winternationals at Pomona in '86 was Oswald's not qualifying for the show. His best attempt yielded only a 9.56-87.89. That was nowhere near the 6.09 "bump spot." The team then went to Atlanta for an eight car show. Mark was still not running up to par, qualifying #7 with a 6.61-237.46. A first round 6.38-247.93 (top speed) beat Billy Meyer who shut off, but in the semifinals, he shut off and lost to Tom Hoover's 5.86 (low ET) at 236. Things went much better at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals where Mark ran a 5.70-263.00 (top speed) to qualify #2. An even better 5.65-259.36 in the first round beat a tire smoking John Lombardo in the "Blue Max." In the second round, it was Oswald who smoked the tires and shut off to a 13.96-49.71 that lost to Ed McCulloch. Due to a rain delay, the Gatornats was run the same weekend as the IHRA Winternationals so obviously they didn't run the Darlington race. But they did make IHRA's second event, the Bayou Nationals at Louisiana Raceway Park. Oswald qualified first and went on to beat McCulloch in the final for the victory.

Notes: Invented the lovely "cowcatcher" nose piece to answer Kenny Bernstein's 1985 long-nose Ford Tempo body. Photo from Martin, MI 1985. Was the quickest car in the sport for most of the 1985 season until Bernstein went 5.55 at Rockingham Fall. | Ran 5.985-235.60 in runner up effort at ADRL Kansas City International Raceway 8/85. | Rick started his '85 season by qualifying #8 with a 5.84-250.69 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He beat Jim Head in the first round with a 5.66-259.81 and in round two he set low ET and top speed with a 5.58-263.62 that beat Kenny Bernstein's 5.67-235. He failed to back up the ET for a new national record. In the semifinals, his 5.92-249 lost to eventual winner Al Segrini's 5.79-253. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he qualified #5 with a 5.72-255.82. But in round one he fouled against Tom Hoover. He qualified #3 at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals with a 5.81-256.99 (top speed), but bad luck hit him in the first round when he lost a blower belt against Ron Correnti. Things went good at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet where he dominated the eight car FC program. Rick set low ET and top speed in qualifying first with a 5.72-254.33. A 5.76-252 beat Jim Dunn in round one and in the semifinals, he beat Jim's son Mike with a 5.94-247 over the younger Dunn's 5.98-242. In the final, he took the victory with a 5.94-241.28 over Gary Densham's Daytona. At the end of May, he was at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals where he qualified #8 with a 5.89-251.81. He lost to John Force in the second round.

Notes: Gene Snow was one of the top '60s funny car stars in his "Rambunctious" Dodges. Snow went through the ranks of Super Stocks, F/Xs, and flip-top funny cars. Even though Gene won the U.S. Nationals twice in a row in '66 and '67 with his Dodge, it was his '69 Mini-Charger was considered one of the top ten funnies of the '60s. The second Charger, the mini-version, replaced the full sized one he debuted at the end of '68. Snow had been working on the direct drive Crowerglide setup and perfected it with the '69 Charger. Snow has never been known to shy away from a new idea. The Mini-Charger ran a best ET of 7.13 at 213.27 mph. With the Crowerglide direct drive unit, the car would leave the line behind the automatic transmission funny cars of the day and charge by them on the big end. The car was one of the first funny cars to top the 200 mph barrier and Snow did it on a regular basis. The chassis for Snow's killer top end direct drive Mini-Charger was built by R&B race Cars of Kenosha, Wisconsin (John Buttera and Dennis Rollain). NOTE: This photo is actually the '68 Logghe car with a new Fiberglass Ltd., molded in red metal flake, '69 Mini-Charger body that Gene ran throughout 1969. This is the car that ran 7.13 at Rockingham, NC. The R&B car was driven by Jake Johnston (see the photo in item 4013). Ran 213.78 at Rockingham NC on 9-69. | A 7.65-199.54 qualified third at the AHRA Springnationals at Bristol on June 8. He beat Malcolm Durham with an even better 7.55-202.24 in the first round but he burned two pistons doing it and was unable to return for the second round. He then went to Dallas on June 15 for the NHRA Springnationals where he made a 7.70-200 qualifying pass and was then told by NHRA officials that the car was disqualified for being too narrow. He ran a best of three match race against Jim Maybeck's Corvair at LaPlace on June 22. He won all three races with runs of 7.79-193.12, and 8.69-196.96 when Maybeck broke. He soloed in the final race, running 7.57 at a track speed record of 204.08. Snow won an eight car show in Dallas on Sept 20. He beat Mart Higginbotham in the first round with a 7.55-163. In the semifinal, a 7.29-204.54 beat Kelly Chadwick's 7.48-194. In the final, he set both ends of the track record with a 7.24-206.88 over Cogo Eads. The following week (Sept 28) came the AHRA U.S. Open at Rockingham. He won the event over Higginbotham with a 7.13 track record.

Notes: This is Don's first Buttera Cuda that made its debut in late 1970 replacing his Ron Scrima built car. This car was originally painted yellow using the same design that was on Don's first Hot Wheels car. Don was low qualifier at the 1970 NHRA Hot Wheels Supernationals with a 7.044, 200.00, losing to Richard Tharp in the first round (Don's Top Fuel car also qualified number 1 with Butch Maas at the wheel). At the 1970 OCIR Manufacturer's Championships Don ran consistent 6 second ETs (6.93-6.91-6.89) and had Top Speed of the meet (217.91 mph) while helping Plymouth win the overall team championship. Don also won the Toys for Tots race at Irwindale on 12-12-70, running a track record 6.92 ET at 192.70. This car was painted white with red flames for the start of the 1971 season and ran successfully for almost two years.

Notes: Arnie Behling drove this car for a short time in the summer of 1970. Qualified no. 3 at Indy. Four Funny Cars qualified in the sixes - Leonard Hughes 6.80, Ramchargers 6.84, Arnie's 6.89, and Jay Howell in the Snake's Cuda at 6.99. Schumacher's 7.0's outlasted them all. | Arnie started driving John's Cuda in competition on June 13 at Lions for its All-American series race. Arnie qualified low with a 7.39 but in the first round came up against the always tough Gene Conway. Sure enough, Conway set low ET at 7.26-202.70 while beating Behling's close 7.30-203.61 (top speed). Arnie got back into the show for the semifinals when Steve Bovan broke. He made good use of his second chance by running a 7.60-196.07 to beat Bob Smith's 7.95-163 in "Bad Bascomb's Ghost." That put him in the final where once again he faced Conway's Corvette. Arnie must have been a little nervous as he fouled away a 7.79-193.54 giving Gene the victory. At the OCIR March of Dimes race on June 20, he set Low ET at 7.25-199.50 in his first round victory over Conway's 7.74-195. In the semifinal, a 7.67-199.55 beat Ed Lenarth's 7.72-194. But against Mike Snively in the final, he got a little anxious and fouled running a 7.41-202.70. Snively ran a 7.26-203.61 for the win. On July 3 for the Nitro Championships at OCIR, he again set Low ET at 7.25, but this time, it came in the final while beating Ray Alley for the win. He ran an easy 7.64-190.67 in the first round when Jack Chrisman's Mustang broke. A 7.46-180.36 beat Dave Beebe's 7.48-195 in round two and in the semifinal, he set Top Speed with a 7.43-200.44 pass over Snively's 7.67-194. His final round numbers were 7.25-200.00 over Alley's 7.95-191. He went out and did it again the next day at Irwindale's Fourth of July race. He beat a troubled John Lombardo with a 7.81-190.26 in the first round. In the semifinal, he was to have met Ray Alley but Alley broke so Arnie soloed with a 7.59-186.32. In the final he set Low ET and Top Speed with a 7.53-191.88 beating Conway's off pace 8.36-111. On July 11 he ran at the AHRA All-American meet at Lions. Again he came away with Low ET and Top Speed when he won his first round race over Vic Morse with a 7.31-198.67. He beat Ray Alley in the semifinal with a rear-end breaking 8.02-133.13 but was unable to fix the car in time for the final so Alley returned to run with the break rule in effect. He qualified first on Aug 1 at Irwindale's Gold Cup Championships and beat Barry Kelly's Corvair in the first round with a 7.38 (Low ET) at 186.32 but in round two he won the race when Frank Rupert crossed the centerline but Behling's car caught fire and was unable to return for the semifinals. He was ok. On Aug 15, they were back at it at the OCIR Anniversary Race. Once again, Arnie had Low ET and Top Speed at 7.14-210.78 (track speed record). He beat John Lombardo's 7.57-192 in the first round with a 7.19-208.81. But the car came up ailing in round two and could only muster a 7.99-171.42, losing to Ed Lenarth's 7.64-181. At Indy for the U.S. Nationals, a 6.89 as mentioned above qualified well but he lost a blower belt on the line in the first round and Ken Safford advanced. On Sept 13, Behling was at Lions for an eight car All-American race. He qualified first with a 7.39 and in the first round his 7.30-203.61 (top speed) lost to Conway's 7.26-202. He got back into the show on the break rule and beat Bob Smith driving the "Bad Bascomb's Ghost" car in the semifinals with a 7.60-196.07. In the final, he ran Conway again, and once again the results were the same. Gene got the victory while Arnie's 7.79-193.54 finished runner-up. By the end of Sept, Rich Siroonian was back behind the wheel.

Notes: Photo from Columbus 1989. | John set low ET while qualifying first at the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.32-277.26. He lost in round one with a 5.46-275.22 that finished second best to Tom Hoover's 5.39-260. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, his 5.26-277.52 qualified #2 behind Don Prudhomme's strong 5.19-265. Once again he lost to Hoover in the first round. Gainesville was NHRA's next stop for the Gatornationals. Force qualified #4 with a 5.36-276.92. This time Chuck Etchells stopped him in the first round. He finally got past round one at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals where he qualified #10 with a 5.57-255.75. He beat Art Hendey in the first round and in round two a 5.48-273.14 beat Hoover. His semifinal 5.55-268.01 lost to upstart Eric Reed's 5.51-259. At Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals, he broke in round two and lost to Mark Oswald. He ran well, qualifying #8 with a 5.42-274.72 and improved to a 5.41 first round win over Paul Smith. Oswald got him again at the next NHRA event, the Cajun Nationals, where Mark stopped John's tire smoking car in the first round. Force qualified #10 with a 5.57-267.61. By the seventh race of the NHRA season, the Springnationals, John was hoping his luck would turn around. It didn't. A 5.37-273.05 qualified #7. In the first round he lost to alternate Jim White. He was in Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals on June 25. A 5.55-268.17 qualified #6 in the field. He beat Etchells in the first round with a 6.06-177.97. But in round two, Oswald's 5.60-256 beat his 5.63-263.00. He qualified #7 with a 5.39-276.15 at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. He beat Tim Grose in the first round but a 5.54 in round two lost to Kenny Bernstein's 5.36. The next NHRA event was the Mile High Nationals in Denver. Crew chief Austin Coil tuned the car to a 5.70-250.00 in the thin air to qualify #7 in the show. John beat Richard Hartman in the first round but in round two his 5.70 lost to Oswald's 5.64. On July 30, John was running at Sonoma for the NHRA California Nationals. A 5.45-274.22 qualified #7 in the field and he improved to 5.42-273.72 to beat Jim Murphy in the first round. In round two, his 5.51-272.97 beat Tony McCallum's 5.57-258. Unfortunately, in the semifinals, he ran into a hard running Prudhomme who strapped a 5.35-268 on John's 5.50-271.65.

In the first round he was caught napping by Ron O'Donnell who put a 7.27-202 run on Jim's quicker but losing 7.23-202.70. He was at Fremont the next day for their FC Championships. Jim Dunn and JJ had a tire smoking battle in the first round with Liberman's 8.25-187.88 coming out on top over Dunn's 8.36-182. In round two, a 7.42-189.46 beat Rich Siroonian but he lost in the semifinals to Gene Snow. On Jan 10 he was at Lions for AHRA's first of ten Grand American races of '71. Jim qualified with a 7.01 and in the first round, ran his best ever (to this point) of 6.89 at 206.42. Unfortunately, even with that strong run, he was late off the line and lost to Leroy Goldstein's 6.96-207 in the "Ramchargers" car. At Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals, Jim qualified with a 7.47 and in the first round ran 7.39 over Tom Sturm but a second round 6.91-211.76 wasn't enough to beat Snow's 6.87-211.

Notes: Photo from Milan, MI, 1989. Jim replaced Johnny West as the driver of Roland Leong's "Hawaiian" entry for '89. The team started the season by qualifying #10 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.43-258.24. Jim cut a good light in his first round race against Mike Dunn and his 5.46-258.10 beat Mike's better 5.42-269. In round two he beat Art Hendey with a 5.55-216.50 but as can be seen by his speed, he hurt some parts and was unable to make his semifinal race against Bruce Larson. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, the team qualified #13 and lost to Larson in the first round. White qualified #8 at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals, but once again he was on the trailer after the first round. Things went even worse at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals and Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals where the team failed to qualify. The "Hawaiian" was at Bristol in May for the IHRA Springnationals. Jim qualified #3 in the eight car field with a 5.54-251.32 but he smoked the tires to a 6.33-181.96 in the first round that lost to Tony McCallum's 5.76-247. The team continued to have trouble qualifying for NHRA fields. At the Springnationals, White was first alternate with a best of 5.58-260.11. He managed to get into the show when #15 qualifier McCallum had a blower explode and destroy his T-Bird. Jim beat John Force in the first round. In round two, Kenny Bernstein smoked the tires against him and Jim's 5.70-253 advanced. Unfortunately, he smoked the tires in the semifinals and lost to Tom Hoover. The NHRA tour then shifted to Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals. A 5.64-237.52 qualified #11. In the first round he smoked the tires and shut off to a 13.63-78.78 that lost to Larson's 5.49-265. After that, it was back to the U.S. at Milan, Michigan, for the IHRA Northern Nationals. The "Hawaiian" qualified #2. A 5.63-248.75 advanced past R.C. Sherman in the first round but the Daytona broke on the line in the semifinals against Doc Halladay. The following week (July 9), he was at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals where they again failed to qualify. White qualified well at Denver for the NHRA Mile High Nationals with a 5.68-255.53 for the #6 spot. He beat Gary Densham in the first round before losing to Larson's 5.65 with a 5.78. It seemed as though the team found something as at Sonoma they qualified #5 with a 5.40-268.41. He beat Dale Pulde in the first round with a 5.67-258.74. Jim then had problems and shut off to a 10.69 that lost to eventual winner Don Prudhomme's 5.38-268. The good runs continued when at Sonoma for the NHRA California Nationals. Jim qualified #3 with a great 5.33-266.98. A 5.48-253.16 beat a tire-smoking McCallum in the first round and in round two, his 5.50-258.77 beat Jim Murphy. He was in the semifinals at an NHRA national event for the third time this season but once again the gremlins stepped in and he broke against Larson. On August 13, he was at Martin, Michigan, for its Wolverine Nationals. It was an eight car show and all cars ran two runs with the two lowest ETs meeting in the final. Jim ran a 6.03-246.21 in his first race over Ronny Young but in his second race, he smoked the tires and shut off. His ETs were not good enough to advance to the final. His next stop was at Brainerd for the NHRA Northstar Nationals. He qualified #5 with a 5.45-267.69 but he slipped to an off pace 7.51-111.85 in the first round that lost to R.C. Sherman's 5.68-256.

Notes: This is the Snake's first Buttera car, first raced at '70 Ontario Supernationals. Painted yellow for the remainder of 1970, the white paint job followed in early '71. (This is the car that flew through the lights in Seattle on fire). The white car ran 6.62 at 226 at OCIR in early '71, all-time bests for FC's to that point. Also ran then second quickest ever ET at 6.67 at the Northwest National Open 71. Said to be trying for the sport's first 6.5 when he flew it through the lights on fire. | Don started the '71 season with a runner-up finish at Fremont's New Year's Day FC Championships. He worked his way to the final by beating Charlie Proite's "Telstar" in the first round with a 7.34-189.06. In round two, a 7.06-214.78 beat Paula Murphy's 7.40-204. In the semifinals, he dipped into the sixes with a 6.98-206.42 over Kenny Goodell. In the finals, he ran Gene Snow and Snow set Low ET with a 6.83-212 to take the victory over the "Snake's" 6.99-214.78. On Jan 10 he was at Lions for the AHRA Grand American. Over 30 cars attempted to qualify for the sixteen car show. Don's 6.78 was third among the "unseeded" entries. A first round 6.88-212.26 beat Mart Higginbotham's 7.19-205. Unfortunately, he broke a rear end in the second round and let Leroy Goldstein advance. Prudhomme was at the second OCIR All-Pro event and although he didn't win, he set Low ET in qualifying first with a 6.70. He came back and won the third OCIR All-Pro event on Feb 13, beating Jim Dunn in the final with Low ET and Top Speed at 6.62-226.13. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, Don qualified pretty far down the list with a 7.28 (#14). He broke in the first round and lost to Stan Shiroma in the "Midnight Skulker." Around this time, Prudhomme had been driving his TF car as well as the Funny. At a lot of meets he ran either one or the other. At Bakersfield for the March Meet he ran his dragster. On March 21 he was at Fresno for a best of three match race against the "Hawaiian" driven by Butch Maas. Butch won the first race with a 7.08-211 over Don's 7.23-214.28 but Prudhomme came back to even things up by winning the second race with a 6.93-211.26 over the "Hawaiian's" 6.99. In the deciding race, Maas won the match with a 6.88 over the "Snake's" quicker 6.85. Due to this match race being run on the same day as the Gatornationals, Prudhomme was obviously not at Gainesville. Everyone remembers the pictures of Don's 'Cuda on fire on two wheels going through the traps at Seattle. That was on April 11 for the Northwest National Open. Don qualified third behind Maas and Jerry Ruth. He blew a clutch in the semifinals while setting Low ET and Top Speed with a 6.67-221.66 over the "Hawaiian." In the final, he again had problems, to put it mildly, and went through the traps on fire to win with a 6.94 over Dave Condit's 6.98 in the "L. A. Hooker." In May, Prudhomme won the Continental Divide Spring FC race. He beat Art Ward in the final with a new track record 7.47.

Notes: Confirmed 5.337 at 277.00 at Seattle and Pomona Finals 88. Also 5.378 from Indy 88. Where was this 5.290-278 from? Photo from Milan, MI 1988. | Oswald started the '88 season at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals where he qualified #6 with a 5.45. He beat Chuck Etchells in the first round and in round two, a 5.49-262 beat a tire-smoking Kenny Bernstein. But in the semifinals, Mark got out of shape and shut off against Jim Head. The team then went to Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals where they promptly smoked the tires in the first round and lost to Ed McCulloch. A week later, on March 20, they were at Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals. Mark qualified #4 with a 5.37-275.98 and in round one defeated Bruce Larson. In the second round, a 5.78-264 beat Scott Kalitta. He moved into the finals by running a 5.44-270 over a tire smoking Don Prudhomme. But a final round 5.35-278 by Bernstein ended the day for Oswald. He made up for the loss by winning the IHRA Supernationals at DeSoto Dragway, Bradenton, on March 27. The race was originally slated to run on March 6 but it was rained out. Mark ran 5.62 and 5.66 to work his way into the final where his final round 5.67-249 took the victory over Kalitta's close 5.69-256. At IHRA's Texas Nationals, Mark ran well again. He ran 5.42-267 in the first round and in round two, a 5.40-267.06 beat Tim Grose. But a consistent 5.41-266.03 in the semifinals lost to Mike Dunn's 5.39-275. Oswald made it into the semifinals at the next event as well, the NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta. Mark advanced past the first round with a 5.67, and in round two, a 5.55-260 got around an out of shape Tom Hoover. But he lost to McCulloch's low ET of the meet 5.52 in the semis. On May 1st they were at Rockingham for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. Mark qualified #2 and in the first round he advanced with a 5.83-260.11 when Etchells broke. In the semifinals, he fouled against Head. Mark got his first NHRA victory of the year at Memphis for the Mid-South Nationals on May 15. A 5.59 qualified #4 and be beat Larson in round one. A 5.55-268.73 (top speed) beat Grose in round two and in the semifinals, a 5.62-268 beat Head. In the final, he out drove McCulloch by running a 5.55-267 to win over the "Ace's" 5.54-262. A week later (May 22) he was back in the winner's circle at Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. He stopped Hoover in the semifinals with a 5.64-261.17 and went on to win the event by running 5.65-259.51 in the final over Dale Pulde's 5.75-224 in Billy Meyer's car. On May 29, he made it as far as the semis at the NHRA Cajun Nationals. In his semifinal race, he hazed the tires and lost to Bernstein. At Columbus for the NHRA Springnationals, they went out early when Oswald smoked the tires and crossed the centerline in the first round against Pulde. Things went far better at the NHRA Grandnationals in Canada. Mark ran 5.47-266.98 to qualify #3, and then ran 5.59, 5.55-264, and a semifinal 5.49-267 over a fouling John Force to meet up with Prudhomme in the final. The "Snake" took the win with a 5.44-260 but it was still a good showing for the "Candies and Hughes" team. They followed it up with another runner-up finish at Milan, Michigan, for the IHRA Northern Nationals on July 10. Mark set low ET and a new track record with a 5.52 at 256.11 in the first round while beating R.C. Sherman and in the semifinal, he only needed a 6.00-178.64 to advanced over a tire smoking Pulde. In the final, it was Mark's turn to smoke the tires and he shut off to a 9.89-74.97 to lose to McCulloch's 5.54-265. A week later found the team at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. A 5.49-261.78 qualified #6. He beat Eric Reed in the first round but he lost to the race's eventual winner, Prudhomme, in round two.

He had a bit of a snooze in the first round and his 5.42-269.13 lost to Jim White's 5.46-258. They went on to the Supernationals where once again they lost in the first round. At the Gatornationals, Mike set track records of 5.28-280.19 in qualifying first but for the third straight race they lost in round one. This time to R.C. Sherman. Things went much better in Atlanta for the Southern Nationals. A 5.48-266.35 qualified #5. He beat Tony McCallum and low qualifier Bruce Larson in the first two rounds.

Notes: Photo from Indy 1987. Also 5.49 at Ennis All Stars race in April. Battle for FC ET record at Ennis 87 was amazing: John Force (5.453), Mark Oswald (5.449), Mike Dunn (5.443), and Force (5.396) all reset the mark, but Ed McCulloch finally landed the mark with the 5.366 (with a best speed of 271.73). Later went 272.06 at Pomona Finals 87.
