1966: Secret Weapon Jeep


In one of its first appearances, the Secret Weapon was beaten three straight by Lew Arrington in the Brutus GTO. That would not last for long. Soon, the car hit its stride. The Secret Weapon could run with any funny car of its era, which struck fear into the hearts of the other racers. NHRA decided in early 1967 to outlaw Jeeps and other truck based funny cars along with aluminum frames. The powers to be at NHRA were solicited heavily by the other factory camps to do this to the Jeeps. The Roger Wolford car did manage to run the '67 NHRA Winternationals at Pomona before the axe fell.
