Notes: Lisa & Rossi purchased this car as a dormant project initially commissioned by fuel pilot Fred Farndon. Roy Fjastad of Speed Products Engineering (SPE) built the car; he designed the rounded-wedge-shaped body (the story goes) with the input of Dan Gurney's aerodynamicists. Tom Hanna was responsible for the metalwork. A dramatic shot of the car dominated the cover of the May '72 issue of Car Craft, with a short one-page writeup inside. Known variously as The Wedge (and by others The Flying Doorstop) the car was raced by Lisa & Rossi from 1972-74, when it was sold. It eventually became a bracket racer. Drivers included Bill Tidwell and Danny Ongais. -- RT | 236.84 OCIR Nitro Champs. 6.400 ET at Orange County Nitro Champs

He sidestepped the NHRA schedule for running the IHRA Springnationals at Bristol, and while he failed to make the finals, Kalitta did set top speed of the meet at 271.05. At the NHRA Springnationals, he qualified #6 with a 5.10-281.77 but lost to Hank Endres in the first round. Connie traveled up to Canada for the Grandnationals where he qualified #14 with a 5.37-271.98. A first round 5.45-270.43 lost to Dennis Forcelle's 5.27-268. He had a bad outing at Englishtown for the Summernationals. His best of 5.33-280.72 failed to qualify only being good enough for the second alternate. At the tenth race of the season, the Mile High Nationals in Denver, Connie made the show with a 5.44-261.32 (#11). He lost to Ormsby in the first round. He picked it up at the California Nationals where he qualified #5 with a 5.10-284.99. But once again he lost early when he smoked the tires against Mike Brotherton in the first round. Connie qualified #5 again at the next meet, the Seafair Nationals at Seattle. A 5.06-281.25 gave him the spot. But it was a repeat of the last event when he smoked the tires and lost to Brotherton in the first round again. Kalitta finally made a few rounds at the Northstar Nationals. He used a 5.26-280.11 to qualify #10. He was fortunate in the first round when Ormsby crashed into the guardrail and his 5.19-281.25 advanced. In the second round, he nipped Lori John's 5.27-264 with a 5.26-278.37. In the semi-finals, he met Muldowney and both ran 5.25 at 277 with Shirley picking up the win. After that good run, it was hoped that it would continue at the U.S.Nationals. It didn't. A 5.12-282.66 qualified #15 and he lost to Eddie Hill in the first round. The next NHRA event was the Keystone Nationals at Maple Grove. Kalitta qualified #11 with a 5.08-277.77. He fouled against Ormsby with a 5.09-263.77 in the first round.

Notes: NHRA says that this was the fastest speed of 1969. We had Garlits at 240, but that was likely a match or AHRA time. Need to verify all and determine the facts. Ran 7.13 Riverside Hot Rod Magazine Championship and 6.80 at Dallas International Motor Speedway in 69. | James Warren and Roger Coburn didn't have one of their best seasons in '69 but it definitely wasn't one of their worst. If John Mulligan didn't claim top speed, this team probably did. James didn't make it very far in eliminations at the AHRA Winternationals but he did set top speed at 221.67. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, he ran a winning 7.19-205.47 in the first round but in round two a 7.14-214.49 lost to Mulligan's 6.86-222. The Warren and Coburn team failed to make the show at the second OCIR All-Pro race on Feb 9. That was a tough field to make with 35 cars trying for the eight open positions. The following week (Feb 16), they were in Las Vegas for the Stardust Open. Unfortunately, they lost to Hank Westmoreland in the first round. At their hometown track for the Bakersfield March Meet, the hometown hero's took a first round loss when Warren's 6.98-222.22 lost to Dwight Salisbury's 6.85-217. The team rebounded by winning the seventh annual Fresno Winter Race of Champions. James set top speed at 224.43 and in the final beat Gerry Glenn's 7.30-192 with a 7.21-217.90. At Riverside for the HRM Championships, James qualified #23 with a 7.13 in the 32 car field. He fouled in the first round giving Steve Carbone a freebie into round two. On March 29, they were at OCIR again for the final All-Pro race. James made up for his nonqualifier at the last OCIR race by qualifying first with a 6.90-221.66. But in the first round blues persisted when Kelly Brown, driving Lou Baney's car, beat him in the first round with a 7.01 while Warren shut off. James lost to Brown again, but this time in the final at OCIR's Fuel Tournament on April 26. The Warren and Coburn car was off at this meet running a 7.73-189 and a 7.27-215.82 to get to the final. In the final, his 7.25-162.45 lost to Brown's 6.84-205 Ford. Another runner-up finish followed at Irwindale on May 3. There James ran a 7.10-216.34 in the first round over Bob Williams and in the semi-finals, a 7.23-171.13 beat an out of shape Glenn. In the final, Warren fouled and handed the win to Gary Cochran. The following week (May 10), they were at Lions for an eight car show, but once again they lost in the first round when Ron Manke's 6.81-227 beat Warren's 7.02-213.27. On May 17, they got past round one when Sam Davis in Bill Martin's "400 Jr" fouled. But in round two, James fouled against Brown/Baney. A big win came their way on May 24 at Irwindale for the NHRA Division Seven race. James set low ET in the first round with a 6.86-225 over Jack Ewell. In round two he set top speed with a 6.87-225.56 beating Brown/Baney at 6.99-213. In the semi-finals, Warren advanced when Westmoreland failed to fire Don Johnson's "Beachcomber." Warren waltzed into the win in the final when his opponent Larry Dixon blew his engine on the line. At Dallas on June 15 for the NHRA Springnationals, James used a 6.91-218.44 to qualify 21 in the 32 car show. A first round 6.90-222.22 beat Tom McEwen and in round two a tire smoking 7.60-135.33 beat Dave Chenevert's 7.56-174. In the third round, James fouled against Don Prudhomme. At Irwindale's Fourth of July race, Warren qualified #6 in the eight-car show with a 6.98. He made it to the final after winning a coasting contest in the semi-finals with Butch Maas when both cars shut off. He had earlier set top speed of the meet at 226.70 but in the final, he lost to Cochran. The following day (July 5), the team was at OCIR for the Nitro Championships. Warren got beat by Maas in round two but Butch had blown his motor while winning, so James was reinstated for the semi-final where he fouled against Tommy Allen. One week later(July 12), he was at Irwindale for the second annual "Race with a Reason." He beat Billy Tidwell in the first round but lost before the finals. At the big 32 car show, PDA Championships at OCIR on July 19, James qualified #12 with a 6.94. He lasted until the second round when he fouled against Mulligan.

Notes: The Speed Sport modified roadster campaigned by Lyle Fisher, Gary "Red" Greth, and Don Maynard, one of the more popular cars of its era, produced record-setting performances from 1956 through the early 1960s. Powered by a 354-cid rear-mounted Chrysler Hemi, the 1,500-pound roadster stunned observers with a speed record of 160.14 mph at the 1957 ATAA World Series at Cordova, Ill., and finished the year with a clocking of 169.11 in Tucson, Ariz. Other records include an 8.03-175.78 in March 1960. An 180.72 backed up by a 179.28 on Oct. 2, 1960. and the Drag News 1320 Standard Modified Fuel Roadster speed mark of 183.67 eight days later in Alton, Ill. The Speed Sport roadster remained competitive well into the mid-1960s, qualifying for Top Fuel at the 1963 AHRA Winternationals and making its final appearance at the 1964 Bakersfield March Meet.

Notes: ET and speed confirmed by Jim Hawkins' DragStats. Photo from Columbus 1989. Also 4.967 and 290.32 at Maple Grove 89 and 4.996 low qualifier at 89 Houston Supernationals on March 3, 1989, which was the fourth entry in the Cragar 4-Second Club for Top Fuel. Amato waged a war with Gary Ormsby for the NHRA TF Championship that went down to the final race. It was wire to wire between the two the whole season. It started at the Winternationals where he set low ET in qualifying first with a 5.04-280.81. He lost to Frank Bradley in the first round. The Supernationals at Houston was the next race and once again Joe set low ET in qualifying first with a 4.99. He beat Dick LaHaie in the first round with a 5.11 and a 5.09-281 beat Jim Head in round two. In the semi-finals, he beat Frank Hawley with a 5.04-285 to go into the final against Ormsby. In the final, Amato took a nap at the line and lost to Gary's 5.09-278 with a quicker 5.03-288.63. Gainesville hosted the Gatornationals on March 19 and for the third straight event, Joe set low ET in qualifying first (5.05). Unfortunately for Amato, a 5.15 by Dennis Forcelle beat his 5.17 in the first round. He was father down the qualifying sheet at Atlanta for the Southern Nationals. A 5.20-275.81 gave him the #8 spot in the field. He picked it up to a 5.15-270.51 in the first round to beat Shirley Muldowney's 5.28-261. But in round two he fell to Ormsby. At Memphis for the Mid-South Nationals, a 5.06-278.12 qualified #4. In the first round against Eddie Hill, he smoked the tires and lost. At the sixth race of the season, the Cajun Nationals, he qualified well with a 5.15-277.77 for the #3 spot but he again lost in the first round, this time to Gene Snow. He broke through for his first win of '89 at the Springnationals. He had qualified #7 with a 5.10-278.98. Joe beat pat Dakin, Lori Johns (with a 5.08-284), and Ormsby in the semi-finals to set up a final round match-up with Hank Endres. In that final round race, Endres tried hard with a 5.22-266 but it was Amato's day and he won with a 5.12-280.72. The NHRA tour then traveled to Canada for the Grandnationals. Joe qualified #3 with a 5.17-272.31. In the first round, he dispatched Head's 5.32-267 with a 5.22-275.48. He beat Hill in round two with a 5.28-272.56 to Eddie's close 5.29-272. In the semi-final, Joe ran a 5.25-268.65 that lost to LaHaie's 5.14-279. Race number nine of the season was at Englishtown for the Summernationals. A 5.08-286.18 qualified #2 but he took a first round loss by Forcelle. Things went more his way at the Mile High Nationals. He qualified #2 with a 5.22-268.57. He beat Muldowney in the first round and in round two, a 5.28-264 beat Forcelle's 5.41. In the semi-finals, both he and LaHaie ran 5.22's with Joe coming out on top. In the final, he met Ormsby and a 5.21-266.11 covered Gary's 5.33-270. It was Joe's second win of the year. He almost got another win at the next event, the California Nationals. There he had qualified way down in the #12 spot with a 5.15-284.18. He advanced past the first round with a 5.13-270 when opponent Jack Ostrander broke. In round two he beat Hill with a 5.06-282.39 and in the semi-final, a 5.09-282.39 beat Head. In the final, he met low ET setter and low qualifier Frank Bradley who beat Joe for the title. He made his third final in a row at the Seafair Nationals at Seattle International. He qualified first with a 5.03-282.84 and another 5.03 at 280.72 in the first round beat Hill. In round two a 5.10-278.51 beat Mike Brotherton and in the semi-finals, he took a big win over Ormsby with a 5.07-273.88. In the final he ran LaHaie and even though Dick ran a strong 5.10-278, it was no match for Amato who set low ET with a 5.01-278.98 in winning his third race of the season. The fourth win came pretty quick, it was at the next event, the Northstar Nationals. He had his worst qualifying spot of the season there when he ran a 5.39-255.75 for the #15 position. In the first round, he picked up to a 5.14-279.15 to beat Bradley's identical 5.14-278. He beat a tire-smoking Darrell Gwynn in round two with a 5.20-275.73 and in the semi-finals, a 5.16-277 beat Snow's ailing car. In the final, he ran a 5.24-278.81 over Muldowney for the win. Things didn't go as well at Indy for the U.S. Nationals. Joe qualified #4 with a 5.02-286.16. He beat Frank Cook in the first round. In round two he caught Bradley napping and won with a 5.16-287.08 to Frank's 5.11-274. But in the semi-finals, he overpowered the track and smoked the tires to a 10.56-74.96 loss to LaHaie's 5.01-280. The next event was the Keystone Nationals at Maple Grove. A 5.01-283.82 qualified #5 and in the first round, Joe advanced with a 5.00-288.55 when John Carey fouled. He cracked into the fours in round two, running a 4.96-290.32 over Muldowney's 4.97-287. He stayed in the fours in the semi-finals with a 4.98-288.18 beating a tire-blazing Ormsby. But in the final, when he definitely needed to run a four, a 5.01-285.98 came in second best to Gwynn's 4.95-281. At the Texas Motorplex for the Chief Nationals, Joe ran a career best (to this point) of 4.95-288.18 to qualify #3. He beat Gene Snow in round one with a 5.02-286.18 and in round two, a 5.07-287.17 beat Hill. But a semi-final 5.01-291.26 lost to Ormsby's 4.98-289. The second last race of the year was the Fallnationals at Firebird raceway. Joe qualified #3 with a 5.07-280.81. He beat an engine blowing Ed Moore in round one and a 5.11-277 beat Lori Johns in round two. But a semi-final 5.14 lost to Muldowney's 5.16.

Notes: ET and speed confirmed by Jim Hawkins' DragStats. Also 305.18 national record at 94 Gators. Defeated dad Connie in then quickest side by side race ever, 4.748 to 4.789 at 94 Houston. Ran 302.52 at 94 Brainerd. | Dick and the team dialed in the new Mert Littlefield supercharger this year and took off. Dick designed a new chassis design and had Murf McKinney build it. That allowed the power to be put to the ground. Murf did not sell the design to other teams for one year. - Dick LaHaie, Racin & Rockin Radio, 2/24/14
