Yes,

Dick Landy
* 1964 .... 64' Dodge A/FX
* 1965 .... 65' Dodge Coronet 'AWB' {Injected}
* 1966 .... 66' Dart Funny Car {Long Nose, Injected}

Sox & Martin
* 1964 ... 64' Comet A/FX
* 1965 ... 65' Plymouth Belvedere 'AWB' {Carburetor}
* 1966 ... 66' Barracuda Injected Funny Car

Bill Jenkins
* 1964 ... 64' Dodge A/FX
* 1965 ... 65' Plymouth Belvedere A-990 S/SA

Dover Drag Strip did try to get these guys back at the Track from 1967 thru 1969, but the Track was
'not' NHRA sanctioned and their appearance fee demands were never met.

In July 1967, Dick Landy and Bill Flynn were signed for a best 3-of-5 Match Race Event with their
1967 SS/B Dodge Coronet WO23 Hemi cars, but they opted out for a better deal.

Sox & Martin and Bill Jenkins were penciled in for a 'Dual-Car' Match Race Event in 1969, but it was rained out,
and no back-up date was logged.
* 1969 'Match Race' Barracuda 'Race Hemi' vs. 1968 'Match Race' Camaro 427
* 1968 SS/B Barracuda vs.1969 SS/C Camaro

Dover Drag Strip made numerous announcements from 1969 thru 1973 that Sox & Martin and Bill 'Grumpy' Jenkins
were appearing in the following weeks, but it was not to be.

Frank,

Dick Landy at Dover Drag Strip ~ June 27, 1965

Dick Landy vs. Bill Flynn and his 'Yankee Peddler'.

Dick ran several 9.90's @ 140 MPH to take all '3' runs.

I think the Dave Wren car was a 63' steel-nosed Max-wedge Plymouth car. Ram-air hood scoop, 415HP.
Sponsored by '93 Chrysler-Plymouth' out of Missoula. Montana.
Car was the SS/DA National Record holder, but I think was classed in SS/D for the Winternationals

Dave's 63 was/is a aluminum max wedge car, He still owns it and bring's it up to Mission Raceway sometimes. It run's 10.90s with a stocker engine in it.
In 1967, NHRA allowed the low comp 415hp cars to run the lightweight noses. They ran SS/C in 67, SS/D in 68. NO re-factoring either!

Arlen Vanke, Dave Wren and a couple of others had great success doing this.

With a factoring of 7.73, it put these right at the top of SS/D in 68 (7.70-8.69)

So to be clear, Dave Wren’s car was originally a steel nose, fitted with a lightweight front clip car and the 415hp engine.

The 425hp engine would have put the car in the middle of SS/C in 68 - 7.54 lbs/hp.
