Notes: T-Boned Frank Mancuso's funny car when Frank crossed the center line at Englishtown on July 30, 1978. Mike sez: the car was junk. Everything was tweaked, bent, or broken. It even destroyed the engine. During the tumbling and rolling over, the chute got sucked into the intake and ruined all the compressor blades. A funny side note: years later, while i was jet parts junking in an Oklahoma jet junk yard, I saw the engine with that chute still sticking out of the intake. After the crash, I built my streamliner and raced that for several years.

Notes: Bought original J46 jet dragster and trailer from Walt Arfons with a $2000 home improvement loan and by putting up some land in Florida that Mike had purchased as a teen. Took a year to build the car (Craig Arfons). First time out at Thompson in 1972. Made two test passes, then Walt got Mike Evegens a race at Epping, New Hampshire. Mike thought he would be racing in front of nobody, but it turned out to be a huge jet car show with all the stars of the jet car world. Made first pass, and only went as long as he could stand it. (Had never made a full pass). Shut off at about 700 feet, then went 1000 feet, and then ran out the end. Thought his head was gonna Explode at the hit and then was surprised again at the top end when that massive parachute hit and pulled the wheels up four feet in the air. Shut the car off and all of a sudden the chute hit and I'm looking at the moon. Mike Evegens, on the Wally Bell Show, 8-04-10
