Randy Parker claimed his first national event title when he won the Stock title in Bristol in 1999. Nearly two decades later, in Stock, Parker coasted to a second win in Richmond after opponent Eugene Monahan broke in the final round. Parker, in his unique I/SA ’80 Dodge Mirada, made his way to the final after wins over James Perrone, Daniel Lynch, Adam Keir, and Jeannie Linke. Parker’s key round was his semifinal race against Linke, which was a heads-up, no-breakout battle between similarly classed I/SA entries. Parker, the No. 2 qualifier in the field, easily powered to the win over Linke, 11.35 to 11.44.
