1970: Mr. Pickett Javelin


Bob Pickett debuted the new Mr. Pickett Javelin late in 1969. The chassis was built by Exhibition Engineering and featured a modern narrow chassis with a dragster roll cage. The Mr. Pickett ran 7.45 at 190.27 at Lions in 1969 and ran a 7.35 at 197.36 again at Lions in 1970. Bob Pickett suffered serious back injuries when the car flew into the air at OCIR's Big 4 race on May 2, 1970. Pickett built a new Mr. Pickett Cuda for the 1971 season.
