The nearest car is Joe Weis's hemi-powered Dodge Dart. The far car is John Skitsmas's hemi-powered Mercury Cougar.
Joe Weis (Jumping Joe) is the father of current NHRA Top Fuel driver Scott Weis.
This is from September 20, 1970 at Southeastern International Dragway. This was an injected fuel funny car show (A/FC - Tom 'Smoker' Smith's East Coast Fuel Funny Car Circuit).
Funny cars only ran 1000 ft. at Dallas due to the short shut-off area.
Jumping Joe won with a 7.30.
