Notes: This 6.57 was originally listed in 1967, but seemed far too quick for that year. Moving it to 1968, but need confirmation of when the team ran it. 7.27 Lions confirmed

Notes: Name came from size of owner and crew (each over 300 lbs). These numbers were originally thought to be recorded in 1966, but seem to be much too quick and fast for that year. Need to confirm the year that these numbers were run.

Notes: The Shelby Super Snake dragster was a deal in 1968. Shelby sponsored the Prudhomme driven Baney Special. Don Prudhomme and Lou Baney entered into '68 with hopes to run as well as they had in '67. Ed Pink continued to build the SOHC engines for the team and Carroll Shelby stepped up with sponsorship. Things started out OK for the team when they went to Carlsbad on Jan 14 for a best two out of three match against Don Garlits. Prudhomme won the first race with a holeshot 7.01-223.86 over Garlits who lost a rod on the run and ran 6.95-209. Garlits was done for the day as the damage was too much to repair. Tom McEwen was the backup car for the match but he too had broken earlier so the "Snake" soloed to a tire smoking 7.21-226.70 to win the match. A week later (Jan 21), he was at Beeline in Arizona for the AHRA Winternationals. Traction was not at its best as Don qualified #10 with a 7.43. He ran a 7.56-210.28 in the first round to beat Bob Mayer's quicker 7.44-192. He beat Don Cook in round two and he had an easy win in round three (32 car field). In the semi-finals Chuck Kurzawa fouled against him in the "Ramchargers" car. This put him into the final against Pete Robinson but Robinson had broken. So Prudhomme got to single for the win. Prudhomme and Baney had a big decision to make as M&H were offering contingency money to racers winning using their tires. Baney was a Goodyear supporter so the team elected to remain on the Goodyears in the final. Don ran 7.25-221.12 for the victory. At the NHRA Winternationals at Pomona, he qualified #20 in the 32 car show with a 7.19-187.50. In the first round he picked up to 7.04-222.76 to beat Dave Powers 7.15-214. In the second round he advanced when Hank Westmoreland fouled. The "Snake" made a rare mistake in round three when he was on his way to a win over Dwight Salisbury but he pulled the 'chute early and his 7.14-186.32 lost to Dwight's 7.19. At the Stardust Open at Las Vegas, Prudhomme qualified #10 in the sixteen car field but he lost to a holeshot by Tom Larkin in the first round. On March 3 the team was at OCIR for the PDA Championships. Don qualified with a 7.07 and he lasted until round two when the dragster pulled two wheelies off the line and he shut off, losing to McEwen. He lost to McEwen at the next race as well. It was the Bakersfield March Meet and Don ran 7.11 to qualify #18 in the 32 car field. A first round 7.22-202.70 lost to Tom's 7.02-202.

Notes: 7.000 ET at Lions Drag Strip 68. | Cook had one of the best top ending cars in '68. He won an eight-car show at Lions on April 13. A 7.00-226.12 (Low ET and Top Speed) qualified first. A first round 7.07-225.00 beat Frank Martinez and in the semifinal, a 7.08-222.76 beat Dave Beebe. In the final, Don ran a 7.55-220.58 for the win over Ray Ayres. Don was at Lakeland for a best two out of three match race against Preston Davis on June 16. The "Southwind" won its first race with a 7.42-229.30 over Preston's 7.54-207 in the "Bo-Weevil." In the second race, Davis evened the score with a 7.34-208 solo when Cook was unable to repair his car in time. Cook proved that the 229 was no fluke by running a 7.27-227 to win the match race. Needless to say, the 229.30 was a track record.

Notes: Confirmed 7.012-218.44 at Indy 1968. | Wayne was at Lions on June 22 for an eight-car show. He qualified on the pole with a 7.25-208.32. In the first round, he beat Joe Lee's 7.38-211 with a 7.20-211.76. In the semifinals, King advanced when Bill Alexander's car caught fire on the line and was shut off. In the final he raced John Mitchell in the "Red Mountain Boys" car. John had earlier set low ET and top speed so it would be a good race. Wayne won the race with a final round 7.36 that just nipped Mitchell's 7.37. Tony Waters and King were back at Lions a week later (June 29) for another eight-car show. This time they qualified #4 with a 7.19 and Wayne was a bit off in the first round when his 7.58-217.38 lost to Alexander's 7.74-213. OCIR held its Nitro Championships on July 6 and Wayne qualified #10 in the sixteen car field. An off-pace 7.77-156.79 in the first round lost to Kenny Safford's 7.29-207 in Ted Gotelli's car. The following weekend (July 14),the team was at San Fernando where only four cars showed up to race. Wayne ran 7.53-180.26 to advance to the final where he met Larry Dixon driving Bill Martin's car. King got the win, running 7.47-221.12 over Dixon's 7.62-193. At Lion's on July 20 for the PDA Meet, Wayne failed to qualify for the top sixteen but with 64 cars they held four sixteen car shows! He qualified #2 in the second sixteen with a run of 7.05-219.50. A first round 7.07-215.86 advanced but in round two the car developed problems and slowed to 8.85 that lost to Ron Rolstad's 7.21-183.

Confirmed 6.870 ET at Springnationals 68.

Notes: Kalitta's '68 season was nothing like his winning season of '67. He ran well, setting track records but the big wins eluded him. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, the race he won the previous year, he was hard pressed to qualify. 80 cars attempted to make the 32 car field and Conrad's 7.21-217.90 qualified #27. In the first round, a 7.46-218.96 beat Ray Ayres' 7.46-222. He advanced past round two with an 8.01 when Mike Snively fouled against him in the "Hawaiian." But in round three, his 7.23-219.50 lost to Ron Rolstad's 7.20-222. Early in March he was at OCIR for the PDA Championships. This was a crazy 64 car show. Once again he lasted until the third round before spinning a bearing and losing to Kenny Safford. Surprisingly, he did not make the trek to Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet (he didn't in '67 either). In May Kalitta ran 7.10 to set a Pittsburgh track record. At Englishtown for the NHRA Springnationals, Kalitta was embarrassed when his best of 7.13 failed to make the sixteen car field. Also set both ends of Tri-City Saginaw records at 7.06-226.21. On July 27, he had a best of three match race with Snively at York U.S. 30. Kalitta won the first race with a 7.21-212.26 when Mike fouled. In the second race, it was Connie's turn to red light and his 7.34-206.88 lost to the "Hawaiian's" 7.24. Connie won the match with a 6.89 in the third race. Back at Pittsburgh later in '68, he again set the track record, this time with a 7.02. On August 28, Kalitta debuted a new lightweight Logghe built car at Cecil County for the Mr. U.S.A Fuel Meet. He was having trouble getting the dragster to launch straight. In the first round he faced John Mulligan and he gambled on the tree and lost, fouling away a 7.42. John ran 7.14 for the win. After he failed to qualify at the Springnationals, it was nice to make the field easily at the U.S. Nationals. His 6.97-215.30 qualified #19 for the 32 car show. A first round 7.36-212.76 advanced past Mulligan but in round two he fouled against Bennie Osborn. - Ron Howard

Notes: NHRA record holder. Vic Brown had his most successful year driving a fuel dragster in '68 driving for Bob Creitz and Ed Greer. He started the season by setting top speed at the AHRA Winternationals. AHRA used Fosdick timing equipment while most others tracks used Chrondek. The ETs and speeds were often different from what we were used to seeing on Chrondek timers. It was reported that Vic set top speed at 225.22 but yet in the first round he beat Dave Beebe with a 7.13-226.12. He lost before the finals but if any one knows the official top speed at the AHRA event, it would be good to know. Brown had some bad luck at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals and as a result he failed to qualify. In a qualifying pass he had the parachute fail and he ended up hitting the hay bales and bending the chassis. So with the Creitz and Greer car out of commission, he attempted to qualify the Nash and Williams car. Not three hours after he hit the hay bales he did it again in their car when once again the 'chute failed. At the Stardust Open in Las Vegas, Vic ran as well as a 7.04 on the way to the final where he met Tom McEwen. Unfortunately, he fouled, giving McEwen the win. He grabbed a big win at the PDA Championships on March 3 at OCIR. It was a 64 car show and Brown had a couple of easy rounds but in the semifinals, he ran a 6.80 to advance over a fouling Chris Karamesines. In the final, he was up against Don Garlits. He must have had "Big Daddy" on edge as Don fouled and Vic roared to victory. At the Bakersfield March Meet, a 7.16 qualified #23 in the 32 car field but he failed to make the late rounds. On March 24, he was at Riverside for the HRM Championships. It was another 32 car show and in round three he lost to McEwen. But McEwen broke so Brown was reinstated for the semifinals. It was Kelly Brown vs. Vic Brown (no relation), and Kelly's 7.42 beat Vic's sleepy 7.29. He was runner-up to Don Cook at the Texas Pro Circuit race at Green Valley Raceway on May 11. He qualified #2 with a 7.47-211.26 and he set a track record of 7.15 in the first round. In the semifinals, Vic ran another 7.15 at 192.70 to advance to the final. In the final, both cars had trouble with Cook blowing his clutch but still winning with a 7.89 when Brown shut down with problems. Vic won Oklahoma's Pro Circuit race on May 12 beating a sixteen car field. He set Top Speed at 221.12 on the way to the win. In the final he beat Don Cook. A week later (May 18), he was at another race at Oklahoma City. He had a good first round race with Cook which he won with a 7.18-220.00 over Don's 7.27-218. He won his semifinal race to advance into the final where he ran Bennie Osborn. Vic fouled away a 7.25-219.84 that gave Bennie a 7.21-220 victory. Also ran 6.945 at NHRA Englishtown 6/68.

Notes: Anderson engines in Bernstein's car (ex-McEwen chassis).| On June 9, the Texas Pro Fuel circuit held a race at Tulsa. Twenty-six cars tried to qualify for the sixteen spots. Bernstein made the show and in the first round advanced over Jimmy Nix who fouled. In round two, Kenny's 7.56, 198 lost to Dwight Salisbury's 7.27-202. The Texas Pro Fuel circuit held another eight-car show on June 15 at Odessa Raceway Park. Bernstein ran a 7.58-208.80 to qualify #7. He beat Larry Brown's 7.56 in the first round with a holeshot 7.61-208. In the semifinal, he used a 7.34 to beat Gary Bailey's 7.45. Kenny went on to win the event with a 7.76, 197.36 in the final when opponent George Cox lost a clutch on the line and was unable to run. Kenny made it two in a row at Amarillo on June 23 for an eight-car Pro Fuel circuit race. He qualified #2 with a 7.20-225.69. He beat Ray Whisenhunt in the first round and in the semifinals, he beat Bennie Osborn's 7.41 with a 7.37. In the final he raced and beat Larry Brown in the "Chaos Kids" fueler for the title. In July, Amarillo hosted the Texas Championships and Bernstein qualified first with a 7.39-214.28. In the first round his off-pace 7.73 lost to Osborn's 7.46 but Bennie had lost an engine while winning and was unable to run his semifinal race so Kenny was reinstated into the show. It did him little good as he lost to Larry Brown's 7.49 with a close 7.51-213.76.

Notes: Last front-engine dragster built by John Buttera at his shop R&B Automotive in Kenosha, Wis. He hauled the chassis to California with him and shortly after sold it to Ewald for $1,750, needing engine, wheels and tires. Restored in 2003 for Cacklefest.

Notes: Weird that on April 13, before Hightower started driving this car, James Warren drove it at a Lion's TF show. On May 4, Bob was driving for "Mr Ed" at a sixteen car show at Irwindale. He beat John Mulligan's 7.11-226 in the first round with a 7.09-223.32. In round two, he thought it was time for a little snooze and his 7.10-221.65 lost to Dwight Salisbury's slower 7.27-220. On May 25, the team was at OCIR for another sixteen car show. He got past the first round and in round two met up with James Warren. Bob won the race with a 7.18-215.3 over Warren's 7.57-166. In the semifinal, he ran a consistent 7.18-224.42 but lost to Dave Beebe's holeshot 7.20-214.
