    Ok..this could take some digging..Probably in old National Dragsters (NHRA) and since records could change from record run to record run ..some might have held the record for only a short time .Also AHRA was a factor back then and had their own classes and records. Like Fred Egloff had lettered on his Wagon AHRA record Holder …Brezee, LaRegina, Egloff,Centolanza Bros.,Terenezio, …are a few that come to mind , Need Class, car ,name ,date….go for it

    I think Charlie boucher was the B or C/A record holder for a while.
    I also think Ronnie Morehead was the national record holder with his “Tiny Tim” Volvo.
    Of course going back to the first year I was at Dover, the “Fabulous Hudson Hornet” was at the end of it’s heyday, and I think it was still the record holder.
    I’ll think on some more, and dig up old EDN’s and Nat’l Dragster’s after PRI.

    I used to race D/S in 1965/1966. I recall a ’57 Chevy 2 door sedan from B&J Automotive in White Plains (Bob Dannewitz, spelling is probably wrong) campaigned until he finally broke the record for D/S. Very soon after, he sold the car (mission accomplished I guess), I beat the car with the new owner driving, but let me state I was not the quicker car, the new owner did not seem to know how to handle his national record holder.

    Yes, it said “B&J Automotive” on it, and I think Bob’s name was lettered over the doors.
