Notes: Photo taken at the 1974 NHRA Springnationals, National Trail Raceway, Columbus, Ohio. Jim qualified #7 at the AHRA Winternationals with a 6.44. He beat Gordie Bonin's 6.73 in the "Hawaiian" in the first round with a 6.49-225.00. He advanced past the second round when Sush Matsubara broke on the line. In the semifinal, a 6.37-230.17 beat Don Prudhomme's 6.41-230 but, unfortunately for Jim, he broke and was unable to make the final, reinstating Prudhomme.

Notes: First 280 mph run in history. Also 5.48 at 273.14 at Ennis All Stars 4-87 (no records set at that event). Set national record at 270.43 at 87 Summernationals. Then at Indy, ran 278.89, but did not back it up. However, did run 274.64, which the 278.89 backed up for the new record. Finally reset national record at 280.72 at Chief Nats. Ran 279.93 at Ennis 10/87 to back up record. Set ET record at 5.443 at Chief Nats. Did Mike run 5.375 this year, too? Photo from Indy 1987.

Notes: Alley literally tore the roof off his three-week-old Charger at Irwindale on Aug. 25. According to the 9/1/67 National Dragster, this occurred when his throttle stuck during a qualifying pass, resulting in a wide-open run that ended a full 1/8th mile past the finish line. He turned low ET of 8.19 of the event in the process and returned to participate in eliminations, topless. -- RT | Ran 8.62, 8.77 at OCIR Mfg. Meet, 11-25-67 8.19 Irwindale. -- DC | Ray was at Fontana on Jan 7 for an eight car show. It was a hard show to get into as 42 cars attempted to qualify for the eight positions. Ray beat the "Whinemaker" in the first round with an 8.11-180.72. In the semifinal, he ran an easy 9.08-146.57 when Marv Eldrige fouled. In the final, he was up against "Dyno" Don Nicholson. Ray ran an 8.52-178.21 for the runner-up money as Don's 8.08-172 took the win.

Notes: The 1969 Chi-Town Hustler Dodge Charger was legendary for its long smoking burnouts and its tough performance. The team claimed that the car had a 90 percent win-loss record in 1969. Minick did the driving, Austin Coil tuned the engine, and John Farkonas was the behind the scenes engineer. The car was built with an offset roll cage for the driver, one of the last funny cars to be built in that configuration. The Hustler ran a best of 6.96 in 1970 and ran 206 in 1969. US 30 ad claimed a 6.99, 219 in 1970. Previously listed 198.23 in 1970. As tough as the car was in 1969, it became outdated by 1971 and a new car had to be built. (Photo provided by Drag Racing Memories. Info from Draglist.com). | Minick failed to qualify at the NHRA Winternationals. But he rebounded nicely on Feb 14 where he competed at Lions. Thirty cars tried to make the eight car show. Pat not only made the show, he won the race with a final round 7.19-204.54 over Don Prudhomme. Earlier, he had beaten Dick Bourgeois in the first round with a 7.32-201.79, and a 7.37-200.88 beat Jim Liberman in the semifinals. The next day (Feb 15) Minick won the Fremont Northern Nationals. He ran 7.34-200.88 and 7.41-200.88 in the first two rounds before setting low et with a 7.18 in the semifinal over Bourgeois' 7.39. In the final, he defeated Liberman's 7.39-200 with a 7.27-205.46. In April, he met Bobby Rowe in the Super Duster for a best two out of three match race at Miami-Hollywood. He beat Rowe in the first two races with times of 7.42-199.55 and 7.38-199.55, but a broken blower drive in the final race kept him from taking a clean sweep. Another match race was run at Capitol on April 17 against Johnny Wright in Mickey Thompson's Mustang. In the first race, a track record 7.25-199.54 beat Wright who fouled on a 7.66-181 run. Minick reset the track record to a 7.19 in his second race and tied the track speed record of 203.60 held by Tommy Grove as Wright fouled again. In the final race, Johnny got a 7.85-175 win when Minick's transmission let go. In May, the team traveled way up North to Keystone Dragways near Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he ran a match race against Liberman. Pat beat Jim three straight, setting both ends of the track records with a 7.45-196.92. Minick beat Clare Sanders in the final at the UDRA Springnationals. He also won at Epping on June 30 over a 16 car field. He set low et and top speed at 7.39-199.10 before running an 8.48-180 in the final to win when Don Schumacher lost a trans. Pat competed at Capitol's King of King's FC Invitational on July 11 but he fouled away a 7.25-201.34 in the first round. He then won an eight car show at Edgewater. There he beat Sanders in the "Super Camaro" in the first round with a 7.40-194.80, and another 7.40 at 200.00 beat Randy Walls in the semifinal. He saved his best for last when he ran low et and top speed in the final with a 7.32-201.46 blast to beat Bryan Teal in Nelson Carter's Charger. Pat won his first race at the second annual Rockford Manufacturer's Meet by out driving Ron Rivero's quicker 7.48 with a 7.52-198.67 but he fouled out in his next two races. On August 2, Minick faced Leonard Hughes in a best two out of three match race at Atco. Pat won two straight with times of 7.44-195.65 and 7.18-199.11 to wrap up the match. The following weekend he was at Martin, Michigan, for the PHR Championships. All cars ran the first round with the eight lowest et's advancing to the second round. Pat's 7.16-200.44 was the lowest et in the first round and he ran 199.11 in the second round over Teal. He had some luck on his side in the semifinal when Gene Snow fouled away a low et and top speed 7.06-210.77. Still, Pat's 7.12-185.95 was strong. In the final, Larry Arnold lost fire and Pat motored to a 7.23-199.11 for the victory.

Notes: Beat the Snake and won the 76 US Nationals. Ran 6.12-238.09 at NHRA Indy Nationals 9/76. | This had to be Gary's best season behind the wheel on a flopper. He ran at the AHRA Winternationals at Tucson where he qualified #3 with a 6.47-205.47. He lasted until the second round when his 7.02 lost to Tom McEwen's 6.99. The following week, he was at Beeline for the Phoenix Winter Classic. He set top speed at 236.84 and made it into the final against Don Prudhomme. Unfortunately, in the final he crossed the centerline and the "Snake" got the win. Burgin qualified first at the NHRA Gatornationals with a 6.29 but the car went into a wheelstand in his first round race and he lost to Tom Prock. At Miami-Hollywood for the IHRA Winternationals, Gary again made it into the final. Once again he raced Prock; this time he took a little nap and his 6.43-222.22 finished runner-up to Tom's 6.52-219. On May 23 he was at Atlanta for the IHRA Dixie Nationals. Burgin made it into the semifinal before losing to eventual winner Raymond Beadle's 6.49 in the "Blue Max" with a slightly quicker 6.48. Gary lost to Beadle at the NHRA Springnationals, as well. The two met in the second round and Burgin smoked the tires while Raymond went 6.60-219 for the win. The next week (June 20), he was at Bristol for the IHRA Springnationals. He won the race by beating R.C. Sherman's 6.58-226 in the final with a 6.29-233.32. Earlier in the day, Gary reset the IHRA ET record to 6.14. On July 4 he was at Union Grove for the IHRA Summernationals. Gary won this one as well, and he set low ET and top speed at 6.20-236.84. In the final he beat Kenny Safford in the "Mr. Norm" car. He ran well at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals as well. A 6.22 qualified #2 behind Prudhomme. A first round 6.18 beat Eddie Pauling in Johnny Loper's Monza. In round two, a 6.29 beat Pee Wee Wallace's "Virginian," but in the semifinals, he overpowered the track and smoked the tires. Opponent McEwen cruised into the final with a 6.62-202. He won Englishtown's FC and Halter Top Nationals later in July. He beat Jim Liberman in the final. In August, he competed at the IHRA U.S. Open. He qualified first with a 6.38-230.76, but failed to reach the finals. The next win is the one that makes the year. At Indy for the U.S. Nationals, Gary qualified #4 with a 6.12-233.73. A first round 6.12-221.67 beat John Lombardo, while in round two, a 6.21-238.09 (top speed) beat Prock's 6.52. In the semifinals, he advanced with a 6.21-231.95 when Beadle's car had fuel injector problems and shut off. In the final he faced Prudhomme's all conquering Monza. Gary was up to the task, beating the "Snake's" 6.46-226 with a 6.25-237.46. There was no love lost between Prudhomme and Burgin at this time, so the win was especially sweet. On Sept 26, he made the final at the IHRA All-American Championships at Bristol. Unfortunately, the car failed to fire and Larry LaDue soloed for the victory.

Notes: 1985 ADRA Champion. Confirmed 5.89-245.23, 5.89-248.61, and 5.87- 252.10 in winning ADRA Spokane. | John started the year by qualifying #3 at Pomona for the Winternationals with a 5.73-256.41. A first round 5.76-253 beat Jody Smart but another 5.76-258 lost to Dale Pulde's 5.74-252 in round two. He went to Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals, and while he failed to make the finals, he did set low ET at 5.76. At the Gatornationals, John again qualified #3, this time with a 5.71-254.66. In the first round he smoked the tires to a 6.55-204.26 loss to Don Prudhomme's 5.78-251. At Atlanta for the Southern Nationals, Force ran a 5.85-254.09 to qualify #5.

He ran at Maple Grove for the Super Stock Magazine Meet in June but in the first round against Joe Amato's Mustang, he had an oil pump break. Only 15 cars showed for the sixteen car show at the Grandnationals in Canada so Force didn't push it in qualifying, running a 6.02-239.36 for the last spot in the field. He failed to make the final. At the NHRA Summernationals, John qualified #3 with a 5.70-257.28. He beat Prudhomme and Jim Head in the first two rounds before smoking the tires in the semifinals and losing to Bernstein.

Notes: Became second funny car over 250 on July 17, 1982 with a 250.69 at the NHRA Summernationals (second entry in the Crane Cams 250 MPH Club for Funny Car). Subsequently ran amazing 254.95 (5.829) at that event, which was likely the fastest legit speed that year.

Notes: Prudhomme reset the track record at Fremont with a 6.24, but Neil Leffler and Jim Terry amazed all by snatching it from him with a 6.18. Neil was at the Irwindale Grand Premiere race in Jan. He qualified #3 in the sixteen car field but lost early. The team then went to Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals and qualified first with a 6.32 (low ET). In the first round, he beat a motor blowing Gordie Bonin with a 6.46-189.86. He got past a fouling Dale Pulde in the "Eastern Raider" in the second round and a semifinal 6.72-199.10 beat Billy Meyer in Gene Snow's Vega. In the final, he ran Shirl Greer and both had some traction problems but Greer's 7.03-218 beat Neil's 7.08-220.58 for the win. Jim Terry and Leffler were hoping for more good fortune at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. Once again they qualified well with a 6.33 taking the #6 position. In the first round, Neil slowed to a 6.88 that lost to Gary Burgin's 6.40. But Gary had crossed the centerline nd was disqualified and Leffler was back in the show. He didn't hang around for long, though, as in round two, he lost to a 6.37 pass by Don Prudhomme. At the AHRA Grand American West at OCIR in March, 17 cars attempted to qualify for the eight car show. Neil qualified but in the first round, he ran an off-pace 7.56 that lost to Jim Dunn's 7.08.
