Notes: Bruce Larson was one of the best Chevrolet funny car racers of all time. The "USA-1" 1967 Camaro was the second funny campaigned by Larson. It was one of the best in the northeast. The car featured a Logghe Stage II chassis and a 427 Chevrolet engine backed by an automatic transmission. The Camaro held the NHRA National record at 7.41 seconds in 1968 when he amazed everyone at SSDI Nats with the Low ET. That run hurt the motor and Bruce had to put in backup motor for the rest of the weekend (still went rounds). The "USA-1" 67 Camaro raced until 1969. Larson now makes exhibition runs with the restored car. (Photos provided by Mike Ditty. Info provided by James Ibusuki and draglist.com) | Won NE Dragway FC Nats in 68 at 7.71, 189.87. Bruce set both ends of Maple Grove track record with a 7.62-186.72 in Oct.

Notes: Gene Snow was one of 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,rn it was his '69 Mini-Charger that makes this list. 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 E.T. 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 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 metalflake, '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). 213.78 Rockingham NC, 9-69 A 7.65-199.54 qualified third at the AHRA Springnationals at Bristol on June 8.He beat Malcolm Durham with a ever better 7.55-202.24 in the first round but he burned two piston's 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 officals that the car was disqualified for being too narrow.Snow won an eight car show at Dallas on Sept 20.He beat Mart Higginbotham in the first round with a 7.55-163.In the semi-final,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 US 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 20 at the OCIR March of Dimes race. He set low et at 7.25-199.50 in his first round victory over Gene Conway's 7.74-195. In the semi-final,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 semi-final, 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 semi-final, 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 semi-final 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 semi-finals. 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 US 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. By the end of Sept, Rich Siroonian was back behind the wheel.

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 eve run 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.

Notes: Held Fremont track record at the end of 1969 with a 7.25, 202.54. -- DW | Won 1st Annual Manufacturers Championship at Rockford (Ill.) Dragway with three sequential 7.37-7.37-7.39 passes, setting a track record of 7.37-205.46. -- RT | Hughes started his season at the AHRA Winternationals. He beat Larry Arnold in the Super Ford in the first round but lost to Clare Sanders in round two. The team ran at the NHRA Winternationals on Feb 2 and due to the poor track surface ran an 8.31-187.89 that still qualified them #13. Hughes ran low et of the first round with an 8.01-193.96 that beat Randy Walls' 8.22. He again had low et of round two with a 7.86 that beat Marv Eldridge's 8.25. But in the semi-final, Leonard had trouble and shut down to an 11.30 while Clare Sanders motored on to a 7.80 for the win. On May 4, they raced at the fourth annual Aquasco FC Invitational but Leonard got out of shape and lost against Frank Oglesby in the first round. They set a track record of 197.63 at Miami-Hollywood's mid-May FC race but failed to get into the finals. Back at Aquasco on May 27 for an eight car show, Hughes' 7.83-197.36 (track speed record) beat Tommy Grove's 8.10-188 in the first round. Unfortunately, Hughes fouled against Jim Liberman in the semi-final. At Bristol for the AHRA Springnationals on June 8, a 7.65-201.78 qualified fourth. In the semi-final, a low et and top speed of the meet 7.52-202.70 put Tom McEwen on the trailer. In the final he faced Danny Ongais and fouled. He was not happy. A 7.89-203.61 (top speed) qualified the team sixth at the NHRA Springnationals on June 15. A first round 7.58-198.67 over Cogo Eads lead to a second round meeting with Ongais. Leonard was hoping to correct his loss from the week before by dumping the MT Mustang, but in a straight up and up race, Danny's 7.64-190 beat Hughes oh so close 7.65-201.79. The Candies and Hughes team was getting known for putting up the big numbers being one of the few cars to hit 200mph consistently. An eight car show was run on July 26 at Dallas. Hughes' 7.50-206.42 beat a blower-popping Mart Higginbotham. In the semi-final, a 7.47 (low et) at 204.84 beat Dick Harrell's 7.76-196. In the final, a 7.67-207 (top speed) beat Mike Burkhart. If there was any doubt about this team, it was erased at Indy where Hughes qualified first with a 7.24 and ran 7.28-207.37 in the first round over Dick Bourgeois' 7.45 Javelin. Another run of 7.25 beat Jack Chrisman's 7.72 in the second round, but a 7.28 in the semi-final lost to Rich Siroonian's 7.25. The team still left on a high note, setting low et and top speed at 208.81. Leonard showed up at Gainesville on Sept 14 gunning for the NHRA FC speed record of 190.26. He made a 7.15-201.34 pass but blew the blower off so was unable to make any other runs. Without a backup run within 2% of his speed the old record stood.
