Notes: This 7.520-186.01 run was originally listed as a 1985 time, but seems far too quick for that year. Need to confirm. Mark attempted to qualify at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, but his best of 7.57 failed to qualify.

Notes: Ran 7.657-183.09 at NHRA Grandnational Molson 87. At Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals,47 cars attempted to qualify for the sixteen car field. Don did well, qualifying #11 with a 7.53-183.48. He didn't reach the finals, but just qualifying was tough. It didn't get any easier at Gainesville where 45 cars showed for the NHRA Gatornationals.Coonce qualified #8 with a 7.50-183.82. He beat Scott Geoffrion in round one but in round two he got out of shape in his race with Bruce Allen and he slowed to a 7.88-175 loss. The Texas Motorplex hosted the NHRA Winston All-Star race. It was only eight car fields in the pro classes and once again Don was able to qualify. His 7.45-185.45 qualified #6. He lost to eventual winner Warren Johnson in the first round. The next stop on the NHRA tour was at Atlanta for the Southern Nationals. A 7.52-184.01 qualified in the dreaded #9 spot. That meant he had to run low qualifier Bob Glidden in the first round.Glidden beat him in their race. At the NHRA Cajun Nationals, a 7.61-184.01 qualified #10. Unfortunately, he lost to Allen in the first round.

Notes: Photo from 1986 U.S. Nationals. Time from Drag Racing List, Volume 1, Number 9. | Earl qualified #15 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.73-247.93. A 6.03 advanced past the first round when Dan Pastorini fouled. Unfortunately, he broke against Joe Amato in the second round. He did well at Gainesville, qualifying #12 with a 5.61-223.88. That was pretty good considering that there were 27 cars attempting to qualify for the NHRA Gatornationals sixteen car field. Whiting slowed to a 5.91-209.30 in the first round that lost to Dick LaHaie's 5.54-254. At the Bakersfield Meet in May, Earl ran 5.65-252.80 to qualify #4 in the eight car show. He lost his engine on a 5.91-226 single in the first round when Ralph Pearson broke. Earl was unable to make it to the line to face Pastorini in the semifinals.

Notes: One half of quickest side by side race in history at 86 Gators, Garlits' 5.409 to Dan's 5.491. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. | Dan started the season by running a career best (to this point) 5.52 at 256.41 to qualify #7 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He fouled away a 5.61 in the first round against Earl Whiting. He bettered his career best in qualifying for the next NHRA event, the Gatornationals. There he qualified #3 with a 5.48-254.09. A first round 5.73-251.81 beat Shirley Muldowney's quicker 5.65-250. He soloed in round two with a 7.29-118.73 when Chris Karamesines was unable to run. In the semifinals, he had a great race with Don Garlits with "Big Daddy's" 5.50-272 getting the win over Dan's 5.49-256.95. At Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals, Pastorini got his first big NHRA win. He qualified #8 for the show with a 5.67-252.38 and he advanced past round one with a 7.54-101 when Jack Revelle broke a transmission. In round two, both he and Dick LaHaie smoked the tires with Dan's 6.11-235.97 getting the win over Dick's 6.16-245. In the semifinals, a 5.75-248.34 beat Bill Mullins' 5.78-256 in John Carey's car. In the final, he was up against that cagey veteran Gene Snow. The two left together with Pastorini scoring the win with a 5.56-256.70 over the "Snowman's" 5.64-244. He got into another final at Famoso for the Bakersfield Meet in May. A 5.54-243.90 qualified #2 in the eight car show. He beat Bill Carter in round one with a 5.53 and in the semifinals he soloed when Whiting was unable to run after losing an engine in the first round. In the final, Dan came up against Garlits. Once again the "Old Man" got the win with a 5.40-271 over Pastorini's runner-up effort of 5.57-253. At Baton Rouge in early June for the NHRA Cajun Nationals, Dan didn't have a very productive outing. He qualified #12 with a 5.72-236.22 and in the first round his 5.62-250.00 lost to Muldowney's 5.57-250. National Trail had 27 cars show up to qualify for the sixteen car field. Dan qualified #11 with a 5.63-238.60 and in the first round got a measure of revenge over Garlits when his 5.69-234.31 beat Don's 5.73-251. In the second round, he beat Darrell Gwynn's 5.67-250 with a 5.60-242.39. Unfortunately, in the semifinals, he hazed his tires and shut off to a 6.89-127 that lost to eventual winner Connie Kalitta's 5.61-253.Pastorini made the trip to Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals where he qualified #9 with a 5.64-256.99. He lost to low qualifier Gwynn in the first round when his 5.92-254.09 finished second to Darrell's 5.43-265.

Notes: Confirmed 265.48 at 86 Winters. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. Conrad started the season by qualifying #6 at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals with a 5.50-261.62. He improved to career bests (to this point) of 5.42-267.06 in the first round to beat Don Durbin's 5.73-233. In the second round, Gary Beck smoked the tires against him and Kalitta moved on with a 5.52-253.52. In the semi-finals, he took out Joe Amato with a 5.54-265.48 to Joe's 5.59-260. This put him into the final with Darrell Gwynn. Connie slowed to 5.72-209.79 while Gwynn got his first NHRA TF win with a 5.46-257. At the NHRA Gatornationals, he again qualified #6, this time a 5.57-263.62 got him the spot. A 5.50-257.58 beat Gary Ormsby's 5.69-215 in the first round but in round two his 5.60-255.24 lost to Gary Beck's holeshot,5.63-257. The next NHRA event was the Southern Nationals at Atlanta.Kalitta was a little of in qualifying when he ran 5.67-243.11 for the #9 spot. This set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Amato. Sure enough, Amato's 5.61-253 beat Kalitta's 5.69-256.41. He qualified much better at Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals where a 5.52-254.30 qualified #2. Unfortunately, he lost to Ormsby's 5.57-251 in the first round with an off-pace,6.00-182.77. Things all fell into place at the NHRA Springnationals. There he qualified #5 with a 5.56-248.75. He advanced past a fouling Chris Karamesines in round one with a5.76-212.86 while in round two his 5.70-243.90 got around Ormsby who smoked the tires. Dan Pastorini hazed the tires against him in the semi-finals and Conrad moved into the final with a 5.61-253.02. He was to run Amato for the title but Joe broke so Kalitta ran 5.65-217.91 to score the victory. At the end of June, the NHRA tour was in Canada for the Grandnationals. Once again Connie qualified in the top half of the field with a 5.60-253.80 to give him the #6 spot. An improved 5.51-261.32 in the first round beat Bob Simmons but in round two his engine gave up and he slowed to 6.25 that lost to Dick LaHaie's 5.43-257.

Notes: Segrini started the season the right way, by winning the NHRA Winternationals.Crew chief Bill Schultz tuned the car to a 6.04-244.56 to qualify #8. A 6.24-230.76 beat Tom Ridings' 6.26-233 in the first round while in round two, his 6.30-233.16 beat Gary Burgin's quicker 6.29-227. In the semifinals, he beat Doc Halladay's off-pace 7.92 with a 6.21-239.36. This put him in the final against Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max." Beadle was favored due to his times as he had run 5.97, 6.02, and another 5.97 en route to the final. But in the final, the "Max" slowed to a 6.32-226 that lost to Segrini's 6.26-238.09. Al got to Beadle again at the next NHRA race, the Gatornationals in March. Al qualified #9 with a 6.11-243.24 that set up a first round meeting with low qualifier Beadle. In their first round race Raymond got out of shape and hit the guardrail. The impact flipped the car onto its roof. He was OK but while all eyes were on the "Blue Max," Al was motoring to a first round win with a 6.18-223.32. Unfortunately, he lost to Paul Smith in round two. He failed to qualify for the eight car show at the Bakersfield March Meet. At Darlington for the IHRA Winternationals, he lost to eventual winner Dale Pulde in the first round. He competed at Atlanta's Spring FC race in April but failed to reach the finals. He was back at Atlanta on April 25 for the NHRA Southern Nationals but he was third alternate with a best of 6.18-231.95 for the eight car show.

Notes: On May 3, Bob ran at an eight car show at Irwindale. He qualified first with a 6.83-218.24. In the first round he lost to James Warren. A week later (May 10) he was at Lions for another eight car show. He fouled in the first round against Gary Cochran. OCIR held a sixteen car show on May 17 and Bob was there. He faced Tommy Allen in Larry Huff's car in the first round and lost when he shut off to a 7.95-166. On June 7, Bob was at Irwindale for an eight car show. A 7.26-210.76 beat Jim Davis' quicker 7.25-210 in the first round but in round two his car came to the line ailing and his 8.78-113.06 lost to Chuck Griffith's 7.13-218. At the NHRA Springnationals at Dallas, a 6.82-202.70 qualified eighth in the 32 car field. A first round 6.84-214.79 got around a fouling Jimmy Nix. He was late in round two when his 6.80-215.82 lost to Dwight Salisbury's 6.83-219. He won the OCIR Nitro Championships on July 5, beating Tommy Allen's 6.84-221 in the final with a 6.86-214.28. He had actually lost in the first round to Ron Goodsell's 6.79-222, but Ron hurt his motor on the pass and Bob was reinstated. He more than made up for the first round loss by dropping Gary Cochran's 7.03-222 in the second round with a 6.77-216.34. In the semifinals a 6.88-213.77 beat Jim Dunn's 7.10-221. Things didn't go as well the following week at Irwindale's Race with a Reason on July 12 when he fouled against Kelly Brown in the first round. Back at OCIR for their Anniversary Race on August 9, Bob shut off on the line with problems in the first round giving Brown a single.

Notes: Carl qualified #16 at the NHRA Winternationals with a 7.20-214.79. In the first round an off pace, 7.37 lost to Connie Kalitta's 7.13 in his Boss 429 powered car. He did have the satisfaction of setting Top Speed at 225.00. On Feb. 29, he and 34 others showed up at OCIR for the second All-Pro event. With only eight spots up for grabs, the qualifying was hectic and Carl failed to make the show. He ran a 7.07 to qualify #15 at the HRM Championships at Riverside on March 16. But a first round 7.35-222.22 was no match for Hank Clark's 6.99-220. On June 7, the team was at Irwindale for an eight car show. Twelve cars attempted to make the field and Olson qualified first with a 7.01-216.34. In round one he beat Glen Woolsey's 7.18-205 with a 7.02-220.58 (top speed of the meet). In the semi-finals,Olson ran low ET with a 6.99 at 217.38 to beat Tommy Allen. This put him into the final against Chuck Griffith in the Ford-powered "Starlite" dragster. Carl smoked the tires while Chuck got the win with a 7.16-220. He raced at an eight car show at Irwindale on Sept 13. The team had just switched to a 426 Hemi. A 7.06 qualified fifth but he improved to a 7.02-220.58 in the first round to beat low qualifier Dwight Salisbury's 7.10-197. In the semifinal, a 6.95-216.34 beat a shutting off Norm Wilcox. In the final, a 6.96-222.22 defeated Frank Pedregon's 7.21-210.

Notes: Won Division 7 in 1969. Ran 6.753-214.97 at Dallas International Motor Speedway NHRA 69. | On Jan 12, sixteen cars vied for eights spots at Irwindale, Jim qualified first and ran a 7.40-201.34 over Wayne King's 8.20-190.66 in the first round but lost a supercharger and was out for the rest of the day. He qualified eleventh at the NHRA Winternationals with a 7.09-213.77. A first round 7.12-212.76 beat Ron Manke. In the second round, he improved to a 7.00-214.80 over Ken Safford's 7.22-211.76. A 6.97 beat Gerry Glenn in round three, but his 7.08-215.82 lost to Don Prudhomme's 6.93-217 in the semifinal. He failed to qualify on Feb. 9 at OCIR for the second All-Pro race where 35 top fuelers tried to get into the eight-car show. He took a big win on March 2 at the Bakersfield March Meet. A 7.10-214.28 beat a fouling Stan Shiroma in the first round, followed by a holeshot win over Ron Rivero when his 6.99-220.58 beat Ron's 6.98-215. He got back at Prudhomme for his semifinal loss to him at Pomona by beating Don in the third round, both ran 6.93 but Dunn's slower 210 speed beat the Snake's charging 218. Jim ran even quicker in the semifinal with a 6.87-221.67 that beat Larry Dixon. In the final, a 6.94-215.82 beat Dave Babler's 7.00-214 for the win. A 7.04 qualified #13 at the HRM Championships at Riverside on March 16. He lost power and the race to Norm Wilcox's 7.43-194 in the first round. He was at Lions for an eight car show on April 12, but his best of 6.97-224.42 failed to qualify. He qualified for a sixteen car show at OCIR on May 17 but he fouled in the first round after he ran over his crewman, Joe Medina. Joe had been pulling the dragster back to the starting line after Jim's burnout for his first round match with Leland Kolb. Joe lost his footing and the right rear slick ran him over. When Jim was asked if Medina was OK, Jim stated, "Hell Ya,Gave him a beer and he was OK." Irwindale hosted the NHRA Division Seven race on May 24. It was a sixteen car show and 25 cars failed to qualify (the good ol' days!) Jim qualified well and in the first round a 7.14 advanced, but he lost in the second round. At the NHRA Springnationals at Dallas on June 15, Dunn used a strong 6.75-214.79 to qualify #4. A first round 6.86-216.86 beat Dixon. In the second round, Tommy Larkin fouled against him and he cooled it to a 9.72 for the win. In the third round, Dwight Salisbury overstaged and fouled as well but Jim ripped to a 6.77-218.97 for the win. In the semifinals, he ran another strong 6.90-189.87 but lost to Hank Westmoreland's 6.80-210. Irwindale held its Fourth of July race and Jim qualified #7 in the eight-car field with a 6.98. Unfortunately, he lost in the first round. On August 17, he won the Division seven race at Bonneville Raceway with a final round 7.21-201.27 over Al Pehrson. At the U.S. Nationals, a 6.60-221.20 qualified sixth. But in the first round, he fouled against Butch Maas.

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 non-qualifier 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. On April 12, James ran a 6.87-225.00 to qualify #7 in an eight car show at Lions. He lost to Tom McEwen's 6.82-217 in the first round with a 7.05-221.12. 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 semifinals, 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 showed up at OCIR for a sixteen car show. A new reverser had been installed and the car got some looks when, after his burnout, James put the dragster in reverse and backed up to the line. He 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 semifinals, 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. Fremont hosted the NHRA Division Seven race and there were more than 40 cars that showed up to qualify for the sixteen spots. James set low ET at 6.83 and ran 6.8's in eliminations. A 6.89-222 beat Jim Dunn in round two while in the semi-finals a 6.85-214 beat Dennis Baca. He was to face Butch Maas in the final but as the two were fired up and staged to race it started raining and the race was canceled. Both teams got the full NHRA points. 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 semifinals 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 semifinal 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 car debuted in 1965 as an A/Gasser, then stepped up to AA/G in '66. Korney fielded the car as an Anglia until mid-1970. In '69, he was runner-up to Ohio George Montgomery in AA/GS Indy class runoffs, marking the end of dominance by a classic gasser-style bodied car in AA/GS. In '71, the Anglia shell was replaced by a Corvette shell and with the Stone, Woods & Cook logo went on tour with K.S. Pittman, Junior Thompson, and a few others, dubbed a traveling blown gas funny car circuit. As of mid-'80s, rumor had it that Korney still had the car, including the Anglia body. As an Anglia, ran 8.50s, as a Vette, 8.30s. | Lions held an eight car show on April 26 and Steve qualified #4 with an 8.88. An 8.82-157.61 advanced past round one when Mike Boosin's Corvette failed to fire. In the semifinals, the Anglia broke on it's burnout giving Ernie Nicholson a solo into the final. Steve was at OCIR on May 21 for an eight-car show. He qualified #2 with an 8.90-150.18 but picked up to an 8.81-155.97 in the first round while beating Danny Collins' 9.18-152. In the semifinals, he beat Ron Zeller's 8.68-167 with a holeshot 8.84-156.29. He saved his best for the last round where he ran an 8.71-156.25 to win the meet over Ron Bizio who had his fuel pump actually fall off onto the track during their final round run. Another AA/GS show took place at OCIR on July 26. It was hoped to be a sixteen car show but only fourteen cars showed. Steve qualified #8 with a 9.00. In the first round, he improved to an 8.72 to beat Steve Thomas. In round two he beat Gary Densham's 8.78 with an 8.66. Gary protested Korney's Anglia and the car was found to be legal, even weighing 100 pounds more than it had to at the 5 lbs. per CID minimum. Steve slept in the semifinal and ran a strong 8.73 but lost to Keith Bush's 8.83. -- RH

Notes: Lions held an eight car show on April 26 and Nicholson qualified with an 8.95. He picked up a whole bunch in the first round as his 8.76-160.14 beat Skip Hess' 8.78-159. In the semifinals, he soloed with an 8.86-141.28 when Steve Korney's Anglia broke on his burnout. That put him in the final against Ron Bizio's Willys. Unfortunately, the Cuda had problems and Ernie shut down to a 9.44-109.57 while Ron went on to win with an 8.60-162. He was back at Lion's for another eight car show on May 17. An 8.99 qualified #7 but a first round 9.00-156.25 lost to Bizio's 8.74-160. Ernie failed to qualify for an eight car show at OCIR on May 24. The bump spot was a 9.27. One car was unable to run and Ernie's Cuda got into the show. In the first round he picked it up a whole bunch, running an 8.94-157.06 but still losing to Ron Zeller's Low ET blast of 8.63-167. Nicholson's 8.94 would have qualified for the field in the third spot. On July 26, he was back at OCIR for another AA/GS show. He qualified #6 with an 8.94 but he fouled against Gene Modlin in the first round and lost with a 9.35.

Notes: Chuck was at Lion's on May 17 for an eight car show. He qualified #2 with a 7.90 and in round one his 8.52-178.21 advanced over Errol Long. In the semi-finals, his 8.09-183.29 beat Sush Matsubara. This put him into the final against Willie Borsch. Willie had run two 7.75's to make the final. But in the final, Borsch's roadster went everywhere but straight. It was classic Willie at his best with a never say die 9.09 that finished runner-up to Chuck's 8.41-176.52.

Notes: Blown roadsters of this ilk surfaced in response to the very liberal rules being allowed by local So-Cal promoters wherein cars were being built with little regard to NHRA rules. A sort of compromise in that liberal engine set back, and light weight similar to the more radical bodied cars (think Mike Mitchell, John Lombardo Corvettes) yet retaining traditional body style. Cars were like an altered, and performed no better than the others. On occasion these roadsters qualified for a few open fuel altered shows when car turnout was light or weather conditions negated the advantages of a blown fuel motor, read no traction. They pretty much ceased to Exist by the end of 1970. Densham's car ran 8.60s at 160 plus on a good day. This Explanation and recorded performance pretty much holds true for all the roadsters of that era. -- BD | Driver's name given as "Bill" in several mentions in event coverage of the 8th Annual Vaca Valley Raceway (Calif.)

Notes: AKA Beaver Shot. Did this car go 8.435-166.35? | They said that Ron's '33 Willys couldn't compete with the new wave of late model cars competing in the class but Bizio proved them wrong. On April 26 he won an eight car show at Lions. An 8.76 qualified first and he soloed into the semifinals with a 9.70-163.40. In the semifinals he improved even better to a 8.63-163.63 (top speed) in beating Gary Densham. In the final, he set low ET with a 8.60 at 162.45 to beat Ernie Nicholson's 'Cuda. Ron was back at Lion's on May 17 for another Gasser show. He ran 8.75 to qualify #3 in the eight car field and a first round 8.74-160.42 beat Nicholson's 9.00-156. In the semi-finals, his 8.81-159.86 wasn't good enough to beat eventual winner Ron Zeller's 8.50-169. He was at an eight car show at OCIR on May 24. He qualified #3 with an 8.97-135.95. In the first round he beat Skip Hess' 9.12-155 with an 8.83-160.42. In the semifinals, an 8.82-157.34 advanced when Gary Burgin fouled. In the final, he faced off against Steve Korney's Anglia. Ron got the holeshot, but then he slowed as his fuel pump fell off the car and onto the track. He slowed to an 8.96-129.87 for the runner-up spot.
