1969: Javelin 2 funny car


Dick Bourgeois had the second AMC in the Doug Thorley team. Bourgeois and super tuner Earl Wade had been running Doug Thorley's second Corvair and updated the car to this Javelin. The Javelin 2 ran the Coke circuit in 1969 and even won a special American Motors race at Irwindale. Bourgeois ran the Earl Wade built 427 and went 7.38 at 204 in 1969. In 1970, Bourgeois and Wade built a new Javelin to replace this one without Doug Thorley. (Photo by Mike Ditty; info from Dennis Doubleday, Bill Duke and Draglist files)
