GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) - Six-time NHRA champion Kenny Bernstein is retiring after 30 years of racing.
The 67-year-old said in a statement Tuesday that he's retiring to pursue other interests with his wife, Sheryl.
Bernstein was the first NHRA driver to eclipse the 300 mph barrier in Gainesville, Fla., in 1992 and won four straight Funny Car titles from 1985-88. He followed with Top Fuel titles in 1996 and 2001.
Bernstein also had success as a team owner, becoming the first to earn wins in NHRA, NASCAR and CART. He won 69 races as a driver and had 18 Top Fuel victories as an owner with his son Brandon driving.
Bernstein said he will work to find a new team for his son.
