Two-time national champion Sherman Adcock Jr. has appeared in more than 20 national event finals during his great career, but few were as meaningful as the Gatornationals Super Gas final, where he took on his longtime friend and fellow NHRA champion David Tatum III. Adcock, in his Peak-backed Corvette, grabbed a small lead at the start, and it was enough for the win, running a 9.908 that held off Tatum’s perfect 9.900 pass. For Tatum, who has six national event titles to his credit, just making it to the final round was rewarding; he has spent the last couple of years rebuilding his race team after his Chevy Nova Super Gasser was stolen.
