Melvin Daniels, driving the Ray Barton 68 Hemi Dart, reset his own SS/AH NHRA National Record and once again in Hemi Super Stock competition ran in the 8.20s and over 160 on Saturday, November 28.
Facing stiff competition from other competitors such as Charlie Wescott, Daniels blistered the all-concrete South Georgia Motorsports Park quarter mile during the NHRA Southern National Open. He set the record with a 8.294 at 160.08 mph. His backup run was 8.313 at 159.31. Daniels sixty foot time was 1.153 on the record run.
The previous record was an 8.331.
Daniels ran three 8.20s during the Dutch Classic in Reading, Pa., but since those runs came after the first round of eliminations, they were not eligible for world record consideration. (Phil Hubbard Photo)
