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.

Notes: Arne Roberts body with covered roll cage. Kent Fuller built it for himself in 1963, but when Jeep crashed at Fresno in late '63, Kent sold his car to the team. This car is on everybody's short list of most beautiful dragsters ever. Third qualifier at 64 March Meet at 7.97, 189.06. Car was featured in the movie Bikini Beach. The 7.60, 204 numbers need to be confirmed. Seem very quick.

Notes: Booming 255.68 mph run at Summers, but records could not be set at this race. Garlits was in England, so Jerry drove his car at E-town. Ruth lost fire in eliminations. He did become the third driver in the NHRA 250 MPH Club for Top Fuel on the run.
