Previous Qualifiers: Back by popular demand (ok, we got one e-mail asking where this page went) a look back at different versions of cars and drivers we've already featured...  


Delaware's Joltin' Joe Jacono's ex-Mazmanian "Brief Encounter" Cuda pictured at Maple Grove, circa 1971. This car later went on to become an A/EA still running the Cuda body. Jacono's follow-on "Rollin' Stoned" flopper was featured in Round 1. (JW Last Photo)


Currently one of the top runners in the nitro funny car ranks thanks to his long association with John Force, Gary Densham is pictured in one of his early funny car efforts from the early 70s when he was confining his efforts to SoCal. The Mustang body Densham is currently using adds one more body style to the long list he has employed over the years; arguably holds the record for the most different styles utilized during the course of one's career. For more on Densham, see Round 9. (Photo courtesy of Tim Hannaseth)


Photographed in the fall of 75 at Lewiston Dragway in Montana is Bill Spevacek's Dart F/C sporting a "Just Married" message in the rear window. Spevacek lost a best-of-three match race to Twig Zeigler, ran a best of 7.16/205 which reset the track's MPH record. Zeigler's best was 7.11/198. Shortly after this photo was taken car burned at the NHRA Supernationals. Spevacek was featured in Round 16. (Photo by Rick Howard)


Pictured is the 78 version of the Chi-Town Hustler in a very uncharacteristic Ford, not Dodge, shell. Pete Williams drove the Chi-Town Hustler Mustang II as did Denny Savage. Car was sold at the end of the season, ran as Drastic Plastic through 79, early 80s, while the Hustler returned to a more appropriate Dodge body. In 1980 Frank Hawley took over reins of the Hustler, went on to win the 82 NHRA World Championship. To find out more about the Hustler, see Round 6. (Photo courtesy of Dave Milcarek)


From the early 70s comes the St. Louis based team of the Jokerst Bros. "Mr. Sinister" Rat motivated Camaro was later leased by Don Zoellner and campaigned as an all black no-name flopper through the mid-70s. Zoellner was featured on Round 13 of the site, the Jokerst Bros were highlighted in Round 12. (Photo courtesy of Don Eckert)


Larry Fullerton's last Trojan Horse Mustang, circa 1979. Story goes that the car was destroyed at an outlaw track in Alabama in 1980 when it hit a telephone pole that "blocked" a turnoff and burned to the ground because the track had no fire fighting equipment! Fullerton was highlighted in Round 2. (Photo and info courtesy of David Hapgood)


Pictured is Lew Arrington's last Brutus funny car, the ex-Nichols & Oxner Charger run out of Fred Forkner's Atlantic Speed Center in Delaware circa 1974. Arrington was one of the charter funny car members with a GTO in the mid-60s. Mustang bodied car followed in 71...  Capt America rocket F/C was Arrington's last effort in the mid-70s. Arrington was featured on Round 1. (Photo courtesy of Drag Racing Memories)


Probably the most photographed of the Pisano cars, this Camaro was involved in a well documented crash at Ontario in the fall of 1970 at the NHRA Supernationals. Photo in National Dragster of the car just before the crash probably stated it best: "The ill-fated Camaro was a crowd pleaser in it's short but exciting career." Pisano & Matsubara, while one of the most popular, competitive cars in SoCal, was also among the most crash prone through the mid-70s. For more on the Pisano entries see Round 10.
