The Stock final was a class racer’s dream with Larry Gilley taking on Darrel Steiger in a heads-up, no-breakout battle of E/SA Mopars. Gilley, in his ’69 Dart, took on Steiger, in his ’70 Challenger, in Thursday’s class final, and Steiger claimed a narrow win, but Gilley returned the favor on Monday afternoon with a holeshot win, 10.622 to 10.619. Gilley was just a hundredth of a second quicker off the starting line, .022 to .032, making the final margin of victory just .007-second. Both Gilley and Steiger had their work cut out for them just to reach the final, with Steiger taking out Dan Fletcher with a near-perfect light and Gilley taking out fellow Division 7 racer Steve Wann in another close battle.
