Notes: Ex Nelson Des Champs, Kenny Hahn car. Rumor was it was originally built to be a "MOPAR MISSLE." Leroy was probably the only pro stock racer to campaign Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and AMC entries during his career. He was runner-up to Joe Satmary in the Sunday portion of the 77 Olympics of Drag Racing. Car ran consistent 8.90s and low nines all weekend.

Notes: Photo from Columbus 1993. Ran this 5.11 at Winternats -- beating John Force -- except he hit the top end timing cones, negating the time & losing the race. | Whit qualified #12 with a 5.26-285.08 at the NHRA Winternationals, and as mentioned above, defeated Force with a career-best 5.11 but was disqualified for crossing the centerline while hitting the cones. At the second NHRA race of the season, the Arizona Nationals, Whit qualified #8 with a 5.26-276.83. He lost to Kenji Okazaki's 5.30-268 in the first round when he lost a motor and the car caught fire. Bazemore brought the car to a stop and he was OK. At Houston for the NHRA Supernationals, only 17 cars showed so qualifying was relatively easy. Whit qualified on the "bump" with a 9.97-81.54. Unfortunately, that meant that he had to run low qualifier John Force in round one. Whit ran a strong 5.24-261.32 but lost to Force's 5.18-282. Gainesville was the fourth stop on the NHRA schedule and Whit qualified #12 with a 5.40-248.20. He beat Del Worsham in the first round with a 5.26-262.31. In round two, an off pace 5.50-209.10 lost to Gary Bolger's 5.32-268. The non-points race, the NHRA Winston Invitational, was Bazemore's next stop. He ran a motor-blowing 5.53, 198.23 to qualify last in the eight-car field, but the resulting fire from the blown engine did too much damage to the car and he was unable to run in eliminations. The car was repaired and ready for Atlanta and the NHRA Southern Nationals in late April. A 5.24-280.28 qualified #8. In the first round, the motor let go while beating Jim Epler with a 5.33-236.71 and he was unable to return for round two. Mid-May found the Fast Orange team at Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals where they qualified #10 with a 5.51-272.14. Whit stepped it up to a 5.40-274.22 to beat Cruz Pedregon's 5.40-276 in the first round. A second round 5.43-269.62 lost to Wyatt Radke's 5.35-281. The following week (May 23), the NHRA tour was at Englishtown for the Mopar Parts Nationals. Whit ran 5.21-280.61 to qualify #7. In the first round, the car broke. The Probe's career came to an end at the NHRA Springnationals. There he had a bad fire and crash that left him with a mild concussion. He was out of a ride until July 10. That was when he first drove Johnny West's car.

Notes: Got the sponsor but no money ever changed hands. That is why Roland parked the car after this race. Switched between two beautiful bodies on this car in '93: a purple one, and the aqua, blue one pictured here at Columbus 1993. One half of quickest side by sider in history at Houston Slick 50 Nats with John Force, Gordie 5.131 and Force 5.156. This team made its NHRA debut at the Supernationals. Car owner Roland Leong turned the wrenches over to Leonard Hughes and he hired "240mph" Gordie Bonin to drive. Things started off slow when they failed to qualify at Huston but things went much better at the NHRA Gatornationals. Bonin qualified #9 with a 5.36-286.35. He improved to 5.28-281.86 in the first round but it wasn't enough to beat Chuck Etchells' 5.21-274. NHRA's next event was the non-points Winston Invitational at Rockingham. A 5.37-276.32 qualified #6 in the eight-car field and in round one his 5.42-268.01 advanced when Etchells broke. Gordie had a bit more luck in the semi-finals when Wyatt Radke broke against him and his 5.33-237.34 advanced into the final. There he met Al Hofmann and this time Bonin had problems and slowed to a 10.14-80.97 while Al got the victory with a 5.18-288. The team really picked up the pace at Atlanta for the NHRA Southern Nationals where Gordie's 5.14-286.53 qualified #3. Unfortunately, in the first round the throttle linkage broke and his 6.58-134.60 lost to Tom Hoover's 5.72-195. The next stop on the NHRA tour was at Memphis for the Mid-South Nationals. A 5.30-282.22 qualified #5. Bonin picked up to a 5.23-279.76 in the first round to beat Jim Epler and in round two his 5.26-285.89 got around Etchells close 5.27-274. In the semi-finals, Bonin slowed to 5.53-242.71 that lost to eventual winner, John Force's 5.27-284. At Englishtown for the Mopar Parts Nationals, a great 5.08 at 285.80 qualified #3. He beat Gordon Mineo in round one with a 5.23-277.60 but in the second round he lost to Hoover. It had been twelve years since Bonin's last NHRA victory, but at the Springnationals, he got another. A 5.23-289.48 (top speed) in qualifying had placed him #4 on the grid. A first round 5.27-282.39 took out Gary Densham while in round two his 5.24-288.73 beat Hofmann's 5.25-281 in a close one. In the semi-finals, Bonin had to do a bit of driving as his 5.31-284.90 beat Radke's slightly quicker 5.30-278. He beat Mineo in the final with a 5.60-194.34. He almost made it two in a row when he reached the final at the next NHRA race, the Western Nationals. There he qualified #2 with a 5.27-282.75. A first round 5.40-280.46 beat Densham. In round two, he lost a blower belt and the car slowed to 6.48-144.92 but it was still enough to beat a tire-smoking Hoover who registered a 9.80 in losing.Gordie had a close semi-final race with Cruz Pedregon where his 5.37-271.98 narrowly beat Pedregon's 5.39-268. This set up a final round meeting with Force. This was Force's race as he qualified first, set low ET and top speed and in the final his 5.25-283 got the victory over Bonin's troubled, shut off 9.97-82.16. Another final round appearance came at the NHRA Mile High Nationals in Denver. Hughes tuned the car to a 5.45-259.44 in qualifying #4 in the thin air. Bonin made his way to the finals by stopping Jerry Caminito in the first round with a 5.52-265.33 and a second round 5.45-273.55 beat Bruce Nilson. In the semi-finals, Etchells smoked his tires against him and Bonin's 5.60-240.96 got him into the final. There he faced Pedregon and Gordie's 5.71-253.23 was no match for Cruz at 5.48-263. After all those good runs,Sonoma was a bit of a disappointment. The team qualified #8 for the NHRA California Nationals with a 5.35-281.51 but Hofmann beat them in the first round.

Notes: Ran 7.47 at Rockingham. | On March 16, Fritz raced at an eight-car show at Green Valley Raceway. He won his first round race with an 8.32 over Bob Manion's 8.61. In the semifinal, a 7.98-180 beat Gene Snow's ailing Charger. In the final, Henry Garcia's 8.12-181 beat his 8.47-178.21. In mid-April, he was at Indianapolis where four FCs were running. A 7.75-184 beat Terry Ivey in his first race while in his second race, a 7.82-182 lost to Pat Minick's 7.66-194 in the "Chi-Town Hustler." In his last race, he ran his best of the day, a 7.74-185 over Paul Stefansky. On April 26, Callier won an FC meet at Houston, setting a 7.86 track record. Late in May, he was at Gary, Indiana's, US 30 for the Drag News Invitationals. A first round 8.11-198 beat Arnie Beswick while in the semi-finals he picked up to a 7.66-204 to beat Don Schumacher's close 7.67-200. He was to face Minick in the final but it rained and the final never came off. Fritz had an interesting day on June 8 at the AHRA Springnationals. He ran well and was on his way to the finals but things didn't work out. He started by winning his first round race with a 9.96 when Shirl Greer fouled against him. In the second round, the impossible happened, Danny Ongais fouled away a 7.61 and Fritz won with a 7.89. In the semifinal, Callier was to face Dick Harrell but Dick lost fire and the backup car of Mickey Thompson/Danny Ongais was fired up to replace Harrell. Unfortunately, the starter failed to notice Ongais fire up and sent Callier on a single. During the mix-up, Harrell refired and he and Ongais raced down the track. Thompson, quite heated, demanded a rerun between the cars and Fritz agreed. On the rerun, Danny's 7.76 beat the Camaro's 7.93. During this time, Callier's car was known as the car to beat in Houston. He ran against Co-Go Eads' Mustang there in a best of three match race in June. Eads actually beat Fritz in the first race with an 8.12-176 winning over the Camaro's 8.41-175 but Fritz came back to win the next two races and the match with times of 8.13-178 and a solo when the Mustang broke a blower drive, 8.08-180. On Aug 24 at the AHRA World Championships at Green Valley, a first round 7.82 lost to Danny Ongais' 7.65. At Bristol for the AHRA All-American Championships, they held a race on Sept 6 during qualifying, their actual race was to be held the next day. But on the 6, Fritz ran 7.64-187.50 and 7.99 in the first two rounds before meeting Terry Hedrick in the semifinal. A 7.75 beat Terry's quicker 7.72. In the final, he had to shut off with no oil pressure giving Ronnie Runyan the win. The next day, for the real race, a 7.70 beat Tony Wahlay in the first round but Wahlay got back in on the break rule and met Fritz again in round two. Once again, Fritz beat the 'Cuda, this time with a 7.73. Unfortunately, the Camaro broke and was unable to make the semifinal, reinstating Mike Burkhart. He competed at an eight car show in Dallas on Sept 20, but a first round 7.69 lost to Kelly Chadwick's 7.52. At Tulsa for the AHRA Points Finals on Oct 19, he ran a first round 7.79 over Bob Manion but a 7.68 by Gene Snow in the second round beat him. He met Snow at Houston for a best of three match. Fritz lost the first two races and the match when he smoked the tires to an 8.25 loss to Gene's 7.88 and in the second race, he fouled away a 7.94. He did win the final race with a 7.97 beating Snow's 8.20.

Notes: Tommy Grove's "Going Thing" 1969 Ford Mach I Mustang was one of the best Ford-powered funny cars of all time. Grove was loyal to the 427 SOHC engine and Ford. Logghe Stamping Company built the chassis and Paul Shedlik built and painted the Mach I Mustang body. Larry Shinoda designed the paint scheme. Master tin man Al Bergler did the aluminum work. Grove debuted the car in late 1968 and raced it through 1970. Tommy ran 7.28 at 203 in 1969 to become one of the first 200 MPH funny cars. Grove achieved notoriety for cracking 200 mph while at the same time rumored to be Experimenting with an Exotic fuel (hydrazine?) | Grove had a bad year in '69. At least in comparison to '68 and '70. He had lots of transmission problems and was also trying to sort out the Boss 429 as well as running the proven SOHC. He failed to qualify at both the Irwindale New Year's Day Race and the second OCIR All-Pro race on Feb. 9 where an 8.08 was only good for the eighth alternate. He also failed to qualify at Bakersfield for the March Meet. Grove was the Killer Car on the match race trail in '68 and was feared by everyone who matched against him, but '69 was not the same. On March 30, he was at Aquasco for a best of three match against Lew Arrington. He won the first race with a shut off 8.61-168.22 when Lew got out of shape but in the second race while coming to the line, it looked like a blower let go but it was actually his motor self-destructing. Lew soloed in the "Brutus" to two more wins for the match race win. He ran Fred Goeske at Capitol on April 12 and lost two straight even though he set Top Speed at 195. He ran better at Aquasco on May 4 for their fourth annual FC Invitational. A first round 7.91-191.08 beat Tom McEwen's off pace 8.23 and another 7.91-191.88 in the semis advanced over Frank Oglesby in the Don Nicholson Cougar. In the final, Tom fouled against Jim Liberman's 7.86-189. On May 27, Aquasco held another eight-car FC race. Grove's 8.10-188.66 in the first round lost to Leonard Hughes' 7.83-197. After his loss, Tommy came back out later and made two runs, an 8.12-189.86 and an 8.09-191.88. Liberman met Grove at York U.S. 30 on June 7 for another match race and JJ beat Grove three straight races. On June 21, Grove was at Lakeland for the Memphis FC Championships. He fouled against Dick Harrell in the first round and shut down to an 8.81-165. He had some more bad luck the next day at Kingston when he lost a best of three match to Paula Murphy. On July 3, Edgewater held an eight car FC show. Unfortunately, Charlie Allen strapped a 7.37 Low ET of the meet run on Tom in the first round, putting the Mustang on the trailer. He also lost in the first round at Capitol's King of King's FC event on July 16. This time, Oglesby's 7.98-178 beat Tom's ailing 8.71-187.88. He ran much better at the Cars Magazine Meet on July 20 where he set a 7.42 track record at 201 in the first round while beating Al Graeber. In round two a 7.74-197.36 beat Ron Rivero's out-of-shape pass. But then the rain came and the rest of the race was to be run on Sunday. Grove had prior commitments and could not run Sunday. Liberman had a rematch with Grove at Capitol on Sept 20 and once again JJ prevailed although the times were close. Jim ran a best of 7.28-199.10 to Grove's 7.29-203. The following day (Sept 21) he ran at the third annual New England FC Championships where he set a 7.30 Epping track record in the first round while losing to Roger Lindamood's 7.33-198. Tom's speed was 199.50. An interesting thing happened to Grove on Oct 11 when he showed up to run at the OCIR FC Invitational. He was informed that his competition license had expired back in Jan and he was unable to run. After straightening out the drivers license issue, he showed up at Irwindale on Oct 18 for the East/West Championships but lost to Liberman's 7.76-195 in the first round with an out-of-shape 8.23. All cars had run the first round with the losers going into a bracket two while the winners ran bracket one. So Tom then met Rich Siroonian in bracket two but his 8.02-184.80 lost to Rich's 7.53-199. He competed at Sears Point on Nov 2 but lost a blower early in the race. - Ron Howard

Notes: A 5/10/74 National Dragster says this car ran 7.50s in 1969. Confirmed times are listed. Fiberglass Trends body. Dale qualified #8 out of forty cars attempting to make sixteen spots with a 7.89 at Irwindale's New Year's Day race. But in the first round, the car was ailing. He lost to a 10.38 by Clyde Morgan. At Beeline in Jan for the AHRA Winternationals, he lost to Dick Harrell's 7.83 in the first round. 35 cars showed do to battle for eight spots at the second OCIR All-Pro on Feb. 9 and Armstrong's 7.69-187.88 qualified #5, but again he lost early. Another first round loss came on Feb. 22 at Lions when Randy Walls beat him. A month later on March 22, he failed to qualify at Lions when 22 cars showed for the eight spots. On April 26 he qualified for a sixteen car show at Irwindale but a first round 8.20-191 by Ed Lenarth stopped his 8.29-170.77. On May 3 at OCIR's second annual Manufacturer's FC Open, Gas Ronda's 8.29-176 beat Dale in his first race and an 8.22-182.18 won his second race when Gordon Mineo fouled away a 7.92-182. He was at Lions for an eight car show on May 24 and his 7.85 qualified on the "bump." This was pretty good considering there were 19 cars attempting to qualify. He slowed to an 8.11-183.67 loss to eventual winner Dave Beebe in the first round. After the loss, he came back out to race Hank Clark in the Rebel SST in a consolation race. He beat the AMC with an 8.46-179.28. On June 8 at Seattle for the Travelon's Fuel Championships he again lost in the first round to Mike Miller's 8.17.

Notes: Larry qualified on the "bump spot" with an 8.13 at the HRM Championships at Riverside on March 16. The race was a sixteen car show. Unfortunately, he fouled against Mike Van Sant in the first round. He attempted to qualify for an eight-car show at Lions on March 22 but failed to get in. Larry competed at another sixteen car show at Irwindale on April 26. Unfortunately, a first round 7.93-184.42 lost to Randy Walls' 7.88-171. He then raced at the second annual Manufacturer's FC Open at OCIR on May 3. He qualified second on the four-car Ford team with a 7.97-189.86. In his first race, an off pace 8.54-181.08 lost to Ray Alley's 8.04-193. In his second race, he ran an 8.93-191.80 that beat an ailing Ron Runyan. In his third run, an ailing 10.14-94.53 lost to Clyde Morgan's 8.67-161. The following day (May 4), he finished runner-up to Van Sant at Carlsbad for an eight-car show. At Lions on May 10, the car showed up running Norm Cowdrey's 392 Hemi where the Cammer once was. He beat Rusty Delling in the first round with a 7.86-156.25 while a semi-final 8.00-149.75 beat the "Holy Toledo" Jeep drive by Ed Lenarth. The switch paid off as Larry won the race over Runyan with a final round 7.80-187.50 to take the title. Things went really bad for Larry on May 24 at Lions. He was there for an eight car show where he ran 7.69 to qualify #5. He improved to 7.66-194.80 in the first round to beat Bob Smith in Tom Sturm's Corvair. In the semi-finals, his 7.77-179.28 beat Lenarth but as his speed shows, he had troubles. The 392 blew at the top end of the track and the Mustang went up in flames. He got it stopped and he was OK but the car was badly damaged.

Notes: At the OCIR Manufacturers FC Open, Fisher attempted to qualify Sturm's new Corvair but his two runs of 8.50 and 8.71 failed to make the show. On May 17 he was at Irwindale for an eight car show. His first round 7.92-181.44 lost to Mike Van Sant's 7.71-190. At the end of May, the team was back at OCIR for the FC 500. In qualifying, they had a bad blower explosion that wrecked a lot of the interior tin. They were unable to run in competition. Joe qualified at OCIR's March of Dimes race on June 14 with a 8.08. Unfortunately, the run came at a price as a rod let go and went through the side of the engine block. They were unable to run eliminations. Joe drove Sturm's car at the PDA Championships at OCIR on July 19. He qualified third with a 7.67 and lasted until the second round before a 7.79 by Gene Conway beat his 8.00.

Jr. topped a four-car field of Gassers at U.S. 30 Gary, Indiana, on June 28. He beat K.S. Pittman in the first race with an 8.68-169. In his second race, he beat the Stone, Woods, and Cook Mustang Gasser with an 8.59-173. In the final race, Thompson faced off against George Montgomery's SOHC Mustang. It was quite a race with Thompson's 8.46-181.74 (first AA/GS run over 180) to George's quicker 8.43-177. Not sure we agree with these times since they were turned at a track notorious for giving false times. | Previously listed 181 with no associated track.
