Veteran George Stassi stole the show at the NHRA Arizona Nationals with his win in Super Stock. Stassi has been racing in Division 7 events for the last 50 years, but he had never won a national event, or even advanced to a final round, until he stopped Jody Lang in the final.

Stassi broke an engine early in eliminations, but his many friends were quick to come to his aid, installing a replacement in time for Sunday’s final rounds. Stassi did his part with solid driving in his late-round wins against Abe Loewen and defending event champ Gary McGlasson. In the final, Stassi wheeled his SS/HA Camaro to a 10.62 on his 10.60 dial to earn his long-awaited first Wally.
