Notes: Run at the first fuel car match race at the Motorplex (before the national event) on a green track in August no less. At the time, the fifth quickest run in Top Fuel history. Times from The Drag Racing List December 86/January 87, Volume 1, Number 9. | Eddie attempted to qualify at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals, but his 5.82-249.30 best was only good enough for the second alternate spot. He was in the same boat at Gainesville and Atlanta when his 6.00-245.36 failed to qualify for the NHRA Gatornationals and a best of 5.85-252.38 (first alternate) failed to make the show at the NHRA Southern Nationals. At Baton Rouge for the NHRA Cajun Nationals early in June, he qualified to the "bump" with a 5.78-249.72. Hill had problems in the first round and shut off to a 11.75-68.99 loss to Gene Snow's 5.71-228. That seemed to open the door for Eddie as he qualified #9 at the next NHRA race, the Springnationals, with a 5.61-248.20. He lost to low qualifier Gary Ormsby's 5.64-256 in the first round with a 5.66-217.97. He didn't go to Canada for the NHRA Grandnationals but he was back on the tour at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals where he qualified #9 with a 5.53-254.81.

Notes: Came out with this car at the New Year's race at Fremont 1970 (although had debuted at OCIR on 12/14/69). Note the flower print paint job. | | Dick qualified in the eight car field at the second OCIR All-Pro race on Jan 18. He fouled against eventual winner Gene Conway in the first round. He was at Irwindale a week later (Jan 26), where he ran 7.69-184.80 in the first round to beat a tire smoking Jim Liberman, but a second round 7.95-193.96 lost to Charlie Allen's 7.67-170. The team really opened some eyes at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals when they qualified first with a 7.53-194.38. This was at a show where Leroy Goldstein, Don Schumacher, Don Prudhomme, Pat Minick, Jim Liberman, and Charlie Allen, and other luminaries failed to qualify. Unfortunately, he lost to Kelly Chadwick in the first round. Lions held an eight car show on Feb 14 that had 30 cars trying to qualify. Bourgeois made the show but shut off against Pat Minick in the "Chi-Town Hustler" in the first round. The next day Dick was running at Fremont for the Northern Nationals. A first round 7.42-196.06 lost to Jake Johnston's 7.32 in the "Blue Max."

He lost to Al Hofmann in the first round. At the NHRA Arizona Nationals, a 5.44-256.99 qualified #8. Another 5.44-262.00 in the first round lost to eventual winner Tom Hoover's career best 5.26-273. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, he qualified #12 with a 5.43-266.27. A tire smoking 5.90-174.41 in the first round lost to Hofmann's 5.30-272. Gainesville saw him run 5.48-267.61 to qualify #15 for the NHRA Gatornationals. Gary stepped up to a career best (to this point) of 5.23-275.39 to beat Hofmann in the first round. In the second round, both he and Mark Oswald smoked the tires but Bolger recovered first to win with a 6.03-162.19. A strong 5.27-273.80 in the semi-finals lost to Jim Epler's 5.22-270. The fifth NHRA event of the season was the Southern Nationals at Atlanta. Gary ran 5.48-265.33 to qualify #15. Unfortunately, he smoked the tires in the first round and lost to Gary Densham's 5.57-265. After that it was off to Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals. Gary qualified #12 with a 5.57-265.87.

The trouble was terminal and he was unable to run Oswald in the second round. Englishtown hosted the NHRA Mopar Parts Nationals in July. Gary qualified #13 with a 5.59-245.56. In the first round, he broke a blower drive and lost to Chuck Etchells. The tenth race of the NHRA season was the Mile High Nationals in Denver.

Notes: Replaced converted 69 flip top Corvette gasser which was sold to George Kirby in 1971 who resumed its operation as a blown gasser. The Challenger was a legitimate flopper that ran in late 70 but was burned to the ground. It was replaced in 1971 with a Camaro featuring a horrid paint scheme depicting a black widow with the Isky logo adorning its abdomen. This car too burned up, but Lombardo suffered severe burns prompting a temporary surrendering of driving chores to Steve Plueger. | John was at Irwindale on July 17 for a sixteen car show (but only 14 cars showed). He qualified #12 with an easy 8.46-160.42. A first round 7.77 beat Dave Condit's 8.20 in the "L.A. Hooker" and in round two he got around Larry Fullerton's Maverick. Unfortunately, John's Challenger broke and was unable to run in the semi-finals. A week later (July 25), he was at OCIR for the PDA Championships. Once again he worked his way into the semi-finals before breakage took him out. A first round 7.50-169.81 advanced when Barry Kelly fouled against him. In round two, Ed McCulloch also fouled against him, throwing away a 7.26-193. But in the semi-finals, Lombardo lost a transmission against Condit. He was at the OCIR Anniversary Race on Aug 15, but his first round 7.57-192.30 lost to Arnie Behling's 7.19-208 in John Mazmanian's 'Cuda.

Notes: Hughes attempted to qualify for the AHRA Winternationals, but he failed to make the show. At the NHRA Winternationals, Hughes qualified #8 with a 7.66 (low qualifier was 7.53). He beat Steve Bovan in the first round and a holeshot 7.71 in round two beat Larry Arnold's quicker 7.58. In the semifinals, he faced Larry Reyes in the "Hawaiian" and he fouled, advancing Reyes into the final. At the NHRA Gatornationals, Candies and Hughes debuted their new 'Cuda. They made a deal and had Reyes drive their '69 car at the race. In qualifying, the old car out qualified the new one. Leonard ran 7.28-202 for the #4 spot while the old car qualified one spot higher in #3 with a 7.21-208 (Top Speed). Both made their way to the final with the old cars times being much better than the new ones. Times for Hughes were 7.32 over Huston Platt in Tommy Smith's Dart and 7.34 in the semifinals over Bobby Rowe's 7.39 in the "Super Duster." By comparison, Reyes ran 7.15 and 7.10. In the final, the two staged and after the light turned green, Reyes waited a very long time before he left the line. Leonard took the victory with a 7.29-202.24, but Reyes still almost caught him and had to lift, running 7.12-191.08. In the semifinals, Reyes had run 206. LaPlace held a F/C vs T/F race on March 15. Hughes won all three of his races, running 7.55-187.11, 7.35-202.24, and 7.36-205.01. On April 12, the Candies and Hughes team was at Amarillo for a match race against Kelly Chadwick. Hughes won both the first two races to sew-up the match but they ran a final race and Chadwick won with an 8.07 to Hughes' 8.08. The team was tough to beat at the Super Stock Nationals. It was a two day affair and on the first day, Leonard qualified first with a 7.24-200.44. He beat Phil Castronovo with a 7.22-202.70, while in round two, a 7.19 (Low ET) at 200.44 beat Rowe. In the semifinals, Tom Sneden broke on the line in the Bob Banning Dodge and Hughes 7.22 went into the final. Once again he met his good friend Reyes. This time out, the outcome was reversed from the Gatornationals final. The "Hawaiian" took the win with a 7.35-201.34 over Leonard's 7.42-200.89. The following day (May 10), these two again worked their way to the final. This time Leonard got the victory with a 7.35. Later in May, LaPlace held a six car show that had all cars run three rounds with the two low ET cars meeting in the final. Leonard beat Kenny Bernstein in his first race with a 7.64-189.87. In his second race, Mart Higginbotham's 7.53-185 beat his 7.59-193.13. Hughes got all crossed up against Don Gay and lost his third race with a 7.95-147.70. His best ET did not advance to the final. At Dallas for the NHRA Springnationals, Hughes qualified #4 with a 7.26. A first round 7.30 beat John Dekker and in round two, a 7.29-200 beat Bernstein's ailing Cougar. He fell off to a 7.63-145 in the semi-finals that lost to eventual winner Leroy Goldstein's 7.07-207 in the "Ramchargers" Challenger.

Notes: Raced the Barracuda through mid year 1970 before converting to the Duster. Photo from 1969. | Ray Alley started the '70 season at Irwindale for their new year's day race. He qualified seventh with a 7.65 but got crossed-up in road one and lost to Johnny Wright. He qualified first with a 7.40 at the second OCIR All-Pro race on Jan 18 but broke in the first round. At Beeline, 52 cars attempted to qualify for the AHRA Winternationals. Alley was one of them who failed to make the show. At the third OCIR All-Pro on Feb 22, he failed to qualify. At the final All-Pro race on March 28, Alley's 7.89-193.54 got him into the second round where he had to shut off on the line with an oil leak. On April 18 at OCIR, Ray's 7.48-198.23 beat Mike Snively's quicker 7.44-200.00 in round one but lost to Gene Conway's 7.42-175 in the semis with a 7.74-191.08. At OCIR's Big Four Championships on May 2, he ran a 7.48-193.54 best before fouling in round three of the 32 car field. NHRA held its Division seven points race at Irwindale on May 23 and Ray Alley made it all the way to the final before losing to Mike Snively. Back at OCIR on May 30 for the Funny Car 500, he ran a first round 7.38-196.50, an easy 8.51-178 when Don Hampton fouled, and an out of shape, losing 7.90-191.89 in the semis. All these meets and times were done with the 'Cuda as I'm pretty sure he had the Duster at the Springnationals on June 14. - Ron Howard
