Was wondering if Paul Jones, who was my boyhood hero, ever got any title shots at Harley Race for the NWA belt?  I know he got shots at Brisco and both Funk brothers.

How many times did they ever wrestle 1 on 1?  I am aware of one meeting in the US title tournament in November of 1975 where Jones pinned Race in the semi finals but wonder f they have any other history together?

I did a quick search to find a loss to Race on 02-17-77, one of Harley's first title defenses in his 2nd reign, and a draw on 11-02-78.   

Seems that Jones also got title shots in 1982 against Flair in Oklahoma.

Thanks guys, I would have loved to have seen those matches, Jones is my childhood hero and Race is my favorite NWA champ ever.
