Dale Armstrong

Inducted 1995 – Competitor – Drag Racing


One of the most innovative drag racers in the sport – and always under financed – Dale Armstrong still won 12 NHRA Nationals and 14 IHRA races. But his true genius came to light as crew of Kenny Bernstein’s Budweiser King Team. He directed his boss to four Winston Funny Car Titles in the 80’s, and, after a move to the top fuelers in 1990, engineered the cars in which Bernstein broke the 300-MPH barrier and set drag racing world records.
