Notes: 2nd World Record set at Bristol, Tennessee, Oct 11, 1981, 344 MPH, 4.22 ET, good for IHRA national records that will never be reset (still in effect as of 2012). Larry says that the car's rear tire came off the track midway. Chutes deployed at half track. Had this incident not occurred, this run could have been under 3 seconds at over 500 MPH. Ran Vega for first part of 1981, but started running EXP at Bristol. | UPDATE: David McGee found the following in the microfiche race reports of the time: Hey Bill, I'm working a new Bristol book and ran across something interesting today about the Larry Flickinger rocket record from 1981. IHRA, you all and his website report the times as 4.22-344.00. The 1981 Drag Review reports the run was 4.30-344.82. | UPDATE: 3/05/17, David provided photographic evidence of the scoreboard after the run: 4.30-344.82.
