Six-time champ Kenny Bernstein is back, this time in black. He’ll be driving a Funny Car sponsored by Monster energy drink and Lucas Oil, while Brandon continues to campaign the dragster. It will mark the first time father and son have competed together as pros, although they shared a historic moment of being the first father-son duo to win at the same national event, in 2001 at Las Vegas. The elder Bernstein, one of only two men to win championships in Top Fuel and Funny Car, retired following the 2002 season. An injury to Brandon in 2003 put him back on the circuit for the balance of the season, but he has since served only as a car owner. There was talk in 2005 he might return, but nothing bore fruit. Bernstein’s driving days appeared over until Budweiser and Monster struck an agreement late last year that put him back behind the wheel. “It was the right place, right time program,” said Bernstein on the eve of the season-opening Winternationals at Fairplex. “But I’ll tell you, the thing I enjoy the most is the driving, the competition.” It has not been an easy road for the 62-year-old from Lake Forest. In four months, he put a team together – but trying to catch up to technology was quite the other. “We shake, rattled and did everything but roll, including losing a few battles with the race track cones,” Bernstein said of the testing. “The shake was so severe it was blinding.” Bernstein, crew chief Ray Alley and his assistant Johnny West were perplexed as they tried to get the Funny Car down the track. Then, 14-time Funny Car champion John Force stepped in, and brought along his brain trust, mainly crew chiefs Austin Coil, Bernie Fedderely and John Medlen. “We owe John Force a tremendous amount of gratitude,” Bernstein said. “They helped us out. John Force is a great champion with a big heart and we are very appreciative.” Gary Scelzi, the other NHRA driver with Top Fuel and Funny Car titles, also aided the new team. “We received a lot of support from the drivers that were testing and we are truly humbled by the actions of the members of NHRA drag racing family that lent a helping hand,” Bernstein said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

POMONA – For the past three years, the competitive fire deep within retired Kenny Bernstein continued to burn, and not very quietly at times. “He definitely told me many times he missed the competition,” said Brandon Bernstein, Kenny’s son who replaced him behind the wheel of the Budweiser Top Fuel dragster. “You could see it, in his mannerisms and his facial expressions. “It didn’t appear he was having fun. He was kind of bored at the track.” Beginning today at Pomona Raceway, boredom will be replaced by all the elements faced by a driver in the NHRA Powerade Drag Racing Series. read more
