Another Denver champ who was blessed with a short tow was Super Street champ Troy Grant, of Golden, Colo. Grant’s final-round battle against John Bianco’s ’55 Chevy was a memorable race. Grant left first, .005 to .034, and held on for the win with an 11.553 after Bianco broke out by a thousandth with an 11.499 on the 11.50 Denver index. Grant had previously won the Denver event in 2002 and the fall Las Vegas race in 2015, but he also has a pair of final-round losses in Denver from 2005 and 2007.
