Notes: In the new millennium, Don Schumacher has become the owner of the largest professional team in drag racing with eight cars. But at one time he was a driver himself with the "Stardust" series of AAA/Funny Cars that he raced from 1966 to 1974. The car is the "Stardust" '68 Barracuda. The car featured a late Chrysler engine inside a Logghe Stamping Co. frame. Schumacher bought the car from Butch Leal, who gave up funny cars to go doorslammer racing. This was a departure for Schumacher, who previously raced Romeo Palamides built cars, including a front-hinge fliptop funny car. The Barracuda ran a best of 7.22-205 in 1969 as No. 1 qualifier, low e.t. at NHRA Nationals, Indy. -- DW

Notes: In 1971 Henry Harrison was the number one qualifier, set low elapsed time and top speed at the U.S. Nationals in one of Mickey Thompson's cars. His 6.54 was the quickest run to date in a FC and his 226.70 mile per hour blast was simply unheard of. - Bob Frey

Notes: Photo from Martin, MI 1981. This one is wild, here it goes guys: old mag (I believe Hot Rod) had Jim driving for Mike very early in year at a match race in SoCal. It specifically mentioned that the 5.85 he ran was identical to Mike's 5.85 (within a month or so of each other). Both runs were considered suspect by their competitors. | Video shows the actual run, including the scoreboard and announcer claiming the run was the quickest in history. Raced against Prudhomme's yellow Pepsi Challenger.

Notes: Photo from the '68 OCIR mfg. meet. Ran 7.80's. 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. Best et in '68 was a 7.51.

Notes: McEwen ran this car twice during the first ten days of January 1971. At Irwindale Raceway's "New Years Day Funny Car Championship", where he was runner-up to Jim Dunn and at Lions during the first AHRA Grand American of the year. It was at Lions where the Goose had Low ET of the Meet with a questionable 6.55. This car was soon replaced with Tom's 1971 ride, a Ramchargers powered John Buttera Duster.

Notes: Blown fuel, Howell 109" tube steel chassis. A Feburary 3, 1967, Drag News booking ad says the car ran 8.30-175, probably in 1966. Car was run into 1967, then sold to Dick Stokes, who ran it as an injected funny car on the UDRA circuit as the "Blue Bandit" into 1969. Don Gay, like Arnie Beswick, was a tried and true Pontiac racer. Dubbed the "Texas Teenager" by the drag racing press, Gay started racing stockers and super stockers when he was barely legal to drive out his father's Pontiac dealership. Don Gay's father not only bought racecars for his sons Don and Roy, he also bought Houston International Dragway. In 1964, the Gays built their first funny car out of a GTO. That car was replaced by an all-new 1965 GTO for Don and the old car was passed on to Roy. The Gays contracted famed racer Jay Howell to build the new car, an all fiberglass machine with a full tube chassis. The 421 Pontiac in the "Infinity" GTO was built by James Osteen, who was hired to oversee the Gay's racing operation. Don match raced regularly at Houston International and toured across the country. The beautiful GTO ran deep into the eights. (Photo provided by Drag Racing Memories. info from Draglist.com)

Notes: Billy Meyer downed Raymond Beadle in the final at the Golden Gate Nationals, 5.75 to 5.78, in what was then the quickest side-by-side Funny Car race of all time. Meyer finished second to Frank Hawley in the 1982 points battle but had slumped badly in 1983, winning just one round of competition heading into the Baylands event. Meyer was not even ranked in the top 10, but after qualifying sixth with a 5.90, his Chief Auto Parts, 7-Eleven Pontiac came to life with a 5.84 in the semi's and a 5.75 in the final against low qualifier Beadle. - NHRA
