Johnny Brooks’ classic ’67 Chevy II attracted a lot of attention from the Bristol fans thanks to its clean lines and show-quality paint, and it also proved to be an effective race car by winning in Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs. Brooks got a huge head start in the final round against Dylan Stott’s six-second Mustang but was able to hold on for his first NHRA win by running 7.953 on his 7.95 dial. Stott was not far behind with a 6.714 against his 6.69 prediction. Brooks earned a bye in the semi’s but wouldn’t have gotten there if not for key wins against Tyler Caheely and Jackie Robison earlier in the day.
