Jay Broderick and his Gramatan Dodge tied the NHRA North East Division record with the very famous Tasca Ford in late May of 1965 probably in SS/A class. I was graduating from high school that weekend…! My neighbors were the Rickman brothers and I remember their celebration.
Just read a EDN on HAMB and Dave Daly beat Charlie Bouchers “Bad News” to win comp eliminater and in the process “squeaked by” Lagana and set the Track Record at 11.23 at 120MPH July 26,1964

Also in the 70’s I had 4 separate records with AHRA and UHRA……Et and Mph for C/HR F1 .( from different meets) Both these records were with the Pro Stock small block of Bob Ingles in my Camaro ..Et for D/HR F2…This was my motor with a set of Casey’s heads that he got from Fred…I’ll have to dig out the certificates…I’m thinking 1971-1973………………One more….C/HR F3 ET record…….This was the Ingles motor with a small carb on …..10:88..We were totally shocked and so were the tech inspectors…they checked the shit out of us 😆 …. 8-)It was an all legal 331 small block in pro stock form with a highly modified intake and a holley 2 barrel…Everything else was the same… I ran my mouth off for about a year for having a 3000 lb.small block car in the 10’s with a 2 barrel 😆 😆 😆 …Don..
