Notes: Ill Planned Streamliner. Photo from Indy 1987. Gwynn was first under 5.20 at the Ennis All Stars race in April 1987 with a 5.176 at 276.15 mph, then went nuts at the return to Ennis in October: Gwynn's Budweiser dragster qualified with a sizzling 5.13, 281.07, and then rattled off incredible times of 5.12, 281.42. 5.16, 278.29. 5.09, 281.95. And, in the final, a Low ET, new National Record 5.084 at 280.37 mph to win handily. Times took a precipitous drop in 1987. Gwynn set the national record at 5.220 low qualifying shot at the Gators, then went 5.174 at the All-Stars (no records recorded there), then set the record at 5.204 in Atlanta. At the Chiefs, set the record three times: 5.123, 5.092, and 5.084.

Notes: Fastest car in the sport in 1966 (faster than 221.12 record set by John Mulligan at Carlsbad in 10/66). Rivero's run was not backed up within 1 percent.

Ron qualified #3 at the HRM Championships at Riverside on June 19 with a 7.39-217.90. He went on to set Top Speed of the meet at 221.66 and got into the final by running a 7.43-217.38 in the semifinal over Ken Safford's 7.77-201. Tom McEwen's 7.39-202 put an end to the fun for Rivero in the final. Tulsa hosted the Division Four points race on July 3 and Ron ran a 7.68-203.32 Low ET of the meet in the first round but lost to Wayne Burt's 7.76-200 pass.

Notes: First car over 260 with a 262.39 National Record at Gainesville in March 1984 (backed up by 260.11). Just beat Kenny Bernstein to the mark. Did it partially by coming out with a much taller wing than normal. Later upped the mark at the Summernationals. Also ran 263.92 at the Cajun Nationals in June 1984. | Joe started the season with a runner-up finish at the season opening NHRA Winternationals at Pomona. He qualified #3 with a 5.59-254.23. In the first round his 5.61-243.90 beat Bill Carter's 5.71-245. In round two he ran a single when Chuck Haase broke behind the line. Unfortunately, Joe hurt an engine on the solo and had to replace it with a new "bullet" for the semifinals. There, he faced Don Garlits and Amato won easily with a 5.84-230.17 over "Big Daddy's" 6.01-240. In the final, he ran Gary Ormsby and the two ran a real close race with Gary taking the win with a 5.66-243 over Joe's hard charging 5.67-254.25. At Gainesville for the NHRA Gatornationals he made history with the sport's first 260 mph run. He started by qualifying #2 with a 5.53-259.36 behind Gary Beck's low ET of the meet 5.47. In the first round, a 5.55-257.87 beat Carter's off pace 6.28. In round two, a 5.61-259.36 beat Chris Karamesines' 5.80-243. He broke the 260 mph barrier in the semifinals with a 5.58-260.11 that defeated Winternationals winner Ormsby's 5.66-249. In the final he met with low qualifier Beck. Joe got the victory and improved his top speed to a 262.39 at 5.54 in defeating Gary's 5.68-245. A new era had arrived. At Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals, Joe grabbed another win. It was an eight car show and in the first round he beat an out of shape Gary Read with a 5.56-255.68. In the semifinals, a 5.62 beat Shirley Muldowney's 5.72. In the final, he ran 5.60-259.36 (top speed) to beat out Dick LaHaie's 5.64-249. In May, Amato upped his speed to 263.92 at State Capitol Raceway near Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals. He ran that speed while qualifying #2 with a 5.53 in the eight car show. In round one, he beat Danny Danell with a 5.65-257.87 but in the semifinals, he had a rear end break and he lost to Beck who went on to win the event.

Notes: During the 1967 season Beebe and Mulligan recorded three of the 13 quickest ET's with a best of 6.70, and one of the 14 best Top Speeds at 230.76. - Beebe-Mulligan.com. Confirmed by NHRA.com. | Listed 6.95-216 best on INDY entry form. | John was out to set Top Speed everywhere he went. The Tim Beebe prepared Chrysler Hemi made getting those speeds a little easier for John. He showed up at Carlsbad on Jan 1 for a TF show but only four cars showed. John set Top Speed with a 7.24-230.16 in his race against Dave Russell. Unfortunately, he hurt the motor and was unable to run in the final. At the AHRA Winternationals, Mulligan lasted until the semifinals before losing to Connie Kalitta's Ford. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he qualified #22 in the 32 car show with a 7.42-213.76 but he failed in his bid to make the final.

Notes: Also 260.26 at Sanair 85. Photo from 85 Nationals. | Connie qualified #6 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.73-236.09. He beat Shannon Stuart in the first round before his 5.69-202 lost to Joe Amato's 5.49-264 in the second round. At the Gatornationals, he ran 5.68-230.65 to qualify #8. He beat Jack Revelle with a 5.63-212.36 but in the second round, his parachute released early and he lost to Dick LaHaie. Kalitta attempted to qualify for the eight car show in Atlanta for the Southern Nationals but his 5.75-250.97 best was only good enough for the first alternate. In May he was at Baton Rouge for the Cajun Nationals. It was another eight car show but this time he qualified. In the first round he ran Don Garlits and although they both ran 5.77's, "Big Daddy" got the win. The next stop for the NHRA tour was Columbus, Ohio, for the Springnationals at National Trail. Kalitta qualified with a 5.70 that put him in the dreaded #9 spot. That spot put him in a first round race with low qualifier Amato, a race that Joe won. At the end of June, NHRA went up to Canada for the Grandnationals where Kalitta ran 5.58-255.68 to qualify #4 in the eight car show. A first round 5.54-260.26 beat LaHaie's 5.60-259 and he made it past the semifinals to run against Garlits in the final. There, Conrad ran a good 5.62-256.41 but it wasn't good enough as Garlits took the victory with a 5.48-262. In qualifying for the Summernationals at Englishtown in July, Kalitta ran a career best (to this point) 5.52 at 254.09 to qualify #4. He beat Chris Karamesines in the first round and in round two, a 5.57-259 beat Amato. He lost to Darrell Gwynn in the semifinals. Conrad took a big win at the next event, the Mile High Nationals in Denver. He qualified #2 with a 5.63-259.36 and made his way to the finals of the eight car field. He faced Bill Mullins and beat him with a 5.62 to Mullins' 5.68. Things continued to go well when he racked up the win at the Northstar Nationals as well. At Brainerd, he qualified first in the eight car show with a 5.55-258.62. He ran career bests of 5.45-264.70 (track records) in beating Garlits' 5.57-259 in the first round. A semifinal 5.53-236.22 advanced when Gary Ormsby fouled. In the final, he met another long time racer, Gene Snow. Kalitta's 5.52-260.86 took the victory over Snow's 5.63-255. Kalitta was hoping to make it three in a row when they rolled into Indianapolis for the U.S. Nationals. A 5.61-261.62 qualified #7 for the show. He had second Low ET of the first round when his 5.60-259.06 beat Junior Kaiser. Unfortunately, a strong second round run of 5.65-257.28 lost to Garlits' 5.63-261. The next event of the NHRA schedule was the Keystone Nationals at Maple Grove. It was a tough show to make with the eight cars all qualified at 5.53 or better. Kalitta was in the middle of the pack with a 5.50-256.41 that qualified #5. He lost to low qualifier Gary Beck in the first round. At the Fallnationals, Connie qualified #4 with a 5.54-241.93.

Early in the year, ran 7.71, 198.22 at Lions 2/01/66. | Ran 7.73, 195.64 at Bakersfield March Meet 3/66. | Ran 7.30-212 at Pomona 4/66 beating the Surfers' 7.34. | Ran the first generally accepted 7.1-second time with a 7.16 at the AHRA Nationals at Lions in August, and two months later ripped the first six in a match-race at Carlsbad, Calif., with a 6.95. - Drag Racing Online | John ran six of the 20 quickest ETs in 1966 and three of the fastest 19 speeds. - NHRA | Runner-up AHRA Winternationals Irwindale. | John started the season by winning the Jackpot Circuit race at Carlsbad on Jan 9. He qualified second with a 7.62, 199.10. He beat Dick Lechien and Bill Leavitt before running a 7.59-205 in the final to beat Tommy Allen's 7.90-208. On Jan 23 he was at Pomona for its Jackpot race. John qualified fourth with a 7.80-204.08. That wasn't bad considering that there were 34 cars going for the 16 positions. In round two, John lost to Dave Beebe. At the AHRA Winternationals at Irwindale, the team ran well, beating Tom McEwen in the semifinals but losing an engine while winning. Unfortunately, they were unable to run in the final giving Bob Hightower a single for the win. John's 7.71, 198.22 qualified #14 in the 32 car field at Lions for the UDRA Winternationals on Feb 26. He failed to reach the finals. At the Bakersfield March Meet, he ran on Saturday, March 5, for the hoped for "sit out" position for Sunday. Unfortunately, he fouled away a 7.67, 195.22 in the first round. John had still qualified for Sunday's show but he got out of shape in the first round of eliminations against Mike Snively and lost. The team was at Lions for a sixteen car show on March 26 where a 7.89, 198.66 qualified #7. He beat Gary Casaday in the first round with a 7.96, 196.50 but lost in the next round. Another sixteen car show was run at Irwindale on April 2. Mulligan beat Dwight Salisbury in the first round with a 7.76, 199.54 before slowing to a 10.64-91.63 second round loss to Dave Beebe's 7.70-210. He won at Lions over an eight car field on April 9. He qualified #2 with a 7.37 and ran a 7.88-160.71 over Bivens and Fisher in the first round. In the semifinal, Connie Swingle fouled against him and he ended up winning by beating Roy Thode in the final with a 7.65-170. Another win came their way on April 17 at Riverside for a Jackpot Circuit event. John qualified first with a 7.67 and he set Low ET with a first round 7.61, beating Jack Ewell. In the semifinal, a 7.80 beat Tommy Allen who shut off early. In the final, a holeshot 7.95-205.00 beat Paul Sutherland's quicker 7.83-188. The following day (April 18) found them all Lions for an eight car show. Again John qualified first; this time, a Low ET of the meet 7.47 at 205.46 got him the spot. Nick Marshall fouled against him in the first round and Connie Swingle did the same in the semis. John's two runs were 8.05-138.46 and 9.37-106.00 but here he was in another TF final round. Unfortunately, a final round 8.03-146.34 was no match for James Warren's 7.72. John was runner-up at Lions again on April 23 when he fouled away a 7.57, 197.80 against Beebe in the final. Mulligan qualified second with a 7.68-181.08 and had run a 7.85-179.64 over an out of shape Warren and an 8.26-146.10 beat Krohn and Angeleri's Injected Chevy fueler in the semifinals. It was on April 24 that the drag racing world really started to notice the Adams-Warye-Mulligan team when they were at Pomona for a Jackpot Circuit race. In the first round, John soared to Low ET and Top Speed with a 7.30-219.50 drilling of Allen. In the second round, he faced Chuck Griffith but John's clutch was failing and the car pulled through the beams and fouled. He still ran a 7.43 in the loss. They ran at Beeline's Fuel and Gas Championships on April 30 and even though they beat Glenn Brown in the first round with a 7.66; the speed of 180.36 showed that they hurt their engine and were unable to run in the semifinal. Lions held a sixteen car show on May 14, and a 7.96 qualified in the middle of the field. John shut off early in the first round and his 8.08-142.65 lost to Larry Faust's engine blowing 8.14-182. Since Faust was unable to return, John got back in on the "break rule" but lost again with an ailing 9.58 losing to John Edmunds' 7.92-201. The team traveled to Sacramento on May 22 for the Division Seven points race and qualified with a 7.97 at only 159.50. They failed to reach the finals. John set Lions track records of 7.31-216.34 while qualifying first on May 28 for a sixteen car show. In the first round, he beat Ron Goodsell's 7.85-200 with a 7.39-213.76, but Beebe's 7.59-207 beat John's quicker 7.51-204.54 in the second round. Mulligan set low ET in qualifying first at a eight car show at Lions on June 11. His 7.42-203.16 led the field but in the first round his 7.51-187.50 beat Beebe but a cylinder wall collapsed and they had to withdraw from competition. John cracked off a Low ET 7.24 at 219.50 to lead qualifying at Riverside for the HRM Championships. Unfortunately, he lost to Mike Sorokin in the first round. He did better at Irwindale on July 9 where he set Low ET and Top Speed in qualifying at 7.44-214.00. Another 7.44 at 205.94 beat Allen and a 7.50-206.88 beat Ron Hampshire in the semifinals. In the final, he met Danny Ongais who lost a clutch on the line and Mulligan won with a 7.53-213.28. Another win came at Carlsbad on May 29 where he qualified first with a 7.49 at a track speed record of 221.12. He ran 7.87-215.30 and Low ET of the meet, 7.44 at 218.44 in the rounds leading up to the final where a 7.91-203.16 beat Tommy Allen's 8.27. On August 7, Mulligan ran 7.16 to qualify first at Lions for the AHRA World Championships. A first round 7.31-218.44 (Top Speed) beat Bob Brooks but in the second round, the car failed to fire. Dave Beebe met John at Irwindale on August 20 for a best of three match race. This was big as Dave was winning a lot of races at the time. John won the match two straight with times of 7.49-203.16 over Beebe's 7.68-208 and 7.30-206.88 to Beebe's early shut off 7.76-191.08.

Notes: Also 7.62-203.60 at Lions UDRA Winter Championships on 2/11/66 and 7.87 at Irwindale Dragway AHRA Winternationals. | For the NHRA Winternationals, Kalitta hit bests of 7.62-208.80 but lost in the first round. Connie qualified with a 7.51-208.32 at Famoso for the March Meet but lost in round two. He faced off against Bobby Langley for a best two out of three match race at Amarillo on March 27. Connie won all three races with a best of 7.67-205.57. Kalitta ran Bobby Vodnik at Atco on May 1 for a best two out of three match. In the first race he set both ends of the track record with a 7.67-215.30 but he had fouled and Bobby won the first race. In the second race, Kalitta lost a blower and the match when Bobby's 8.05, 197 gave him two wins in a row over the Ford. Kalitta bolted on another blower and soloed with a 7.76-208.80. Another big match race was run at Capitol on May 7 against the "Ramchargers" with Don Westerdale driving. Kalitta won the first race with a 7.35 at a track speed record of 221.12. In the second race he fouled away a 7.61-211 letting the "Rams" 7.80-206 have an easy win. In the final deciding race, Don fouled and Kalitta powered through with a 7.49-215.82 for the match race win. The following day (May 8), Connie was at Madison for a match race against Marvin Schwartz. He beat Marvin two straight setting track records of 7.92-200.88 to win the match. He was at Cecil County on May 15 for a best of three match against Don Prudhomme in the "B&M Torkmaster" car. Prudhomme won the first race with a 7.46-216 over the Ford's 7.80-210.76. In the second race, Kalitta took the win with a 7.48-183.28 over the "Snake" who fouled. The slow speed was the result of a blown engine however and Connie was unable to run the final race. Don soloed to win the match. Richmond hosted the NASCAR Springnationals on May 30 and Kalitta lost a blower during qualifying and suffered slight burns. He was unable to make eliminations. At the NHRA Springnationals on June 3, a 7.64 qualified him fifth, but he lost to a huge holeshot in round two when his 7.52-200.44 couldn't catch a 7.87. He faced Don Garlits for a best of three match at Detroit on June 11. He had some problems with his magneto in the first race and lost with an 8.67. After tearing the motor down and rebuilding it for the second race, it responded with a 7.99-201 but he still lost to Garlits' 7.65-209. A rematch between the two was run at New York on June 26, but once again Kalitta had problems, this time he blew a rear end in the first race and he was unable to repair so Garlits soloed to win the second race and the match. Another best of three match race was run at Connecticut on July 17 against Mike Snively in the "Hawaiian." Connie won the first race with an 8.02-187.88 beating Mike's quicker 7.89, 197. In the second race, Mike's 7.82-173 beat Connie's 7.99-189.46. In the last race, Snively lost a motor while Kalitta won the match with a track record 7.77 at 194.38. He won the Division Three race at Bluegrass Dragway on July 24 with little opposition. Kalitta faced another tough opponent in the way of Don Prudhomme for a best of three match at Detroit on July 30. Conrad won the first race with a (play with the clocks) 7.16-209.78 but Don's holeshot 7.83-200 beat his quicker 7.53-210 and in the final race, Don again proved why he was such a great driver with another holeshot win, 7.75-204 to Connie's much quicker 7.49-208. On Aug 21 at the NASCAR Nationals at Dragway 42, Connie qualified sixteenth with a 7.89 and ran a 7.59 best before Pete Robinson beat him in the semifinals. Connie set the Pittsburgh track record at 200.08. At the U.S. Nationals, Connie qualified with a 7.39-209.78 but lost in the second round with a 7.51-215.82 to a holeshot 7.55 by Don Prudhomme. Connie was one of eight fuel dragster drivers selected to race at Cecil County on Sept 24 for the Mr. USA Fuel Championships. Unfortunately, in the first round against Tommy Ivo, the big Ford failed to fire. This dragster's career came to a halt on Oct 9 at Connecticut. Kalitta was there to face Ivo in a best of three match race. In the first race, he beat Ivo with a 7.27 track record at 204.54 that beat Prudhomme's former 7.54 record. But the run came at a price as the big Ford blew and gave Connie an oil bath. He couldn't see through his oil covered goggles and he drove into a culvert. The car flipped three times and was totally destroyed. He was lucky enough to walk away with some bumps and bruises. Kalitta had to borrow a chassis to stuff his Cammer into for the NHRA World Finals on Oct 30, since he had wrecked his car. A best of 7.53 and a first round loss to Robinson were the results. - Ron Howard

He ran a strong 5.49-264.23 over Connie Kalitta in round two. In the semifinals, he fireballed a motor but still beat Don Garlits who also lost a motor. Amato installed a new "bullet" and went on to win the event by stopping Gary Ormsby in the final.

Notes: Photo from 1986 U.S. Nationals. Time from Drag Racing List, Volume 1, Number 9. | Earl qualified #15 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.73-247.93. A 6.03 advanced past the first round when Dan Pastorini fouled. Unfortunately, he broke against Joe Amato in the second round. He did well at Gainesville, qualifying #12 with a 5.61-223.88. That was pretty good considering that there were 27 cars attempting to qualify for the NHRA Gatornationals sixteen car field. Whiting slowed to a 5.91-209.30 in the first round that lost to Dick LaHaie's 5.54-254. At the Bakersfield Meet in May, Earl ran 5.65-252.80 to qualify #4 in the eight car show. He lost his engine on a 5.91-226 single in the first round when Ralph Pearson broke. Earl was unable to make it to the line to face Pastorini in the semifinals.
