Gary Riley’s lumbering ’74 Pontiac station wagon was one of the slowest cars in Stock, but the 13-second Poncho was also one of the most consistent. Riley downed Division 5 champ Chris Chaney early in eliminations and later stopped Randy Hyman to reach the final. Paired with Dwaine Davis’ ’74 Firebird in the final, Riley got a big lead at the start and was able to coast to the win with a 13.247 o his 13.17 dial for the victory. Riley opened eliminations with a pair of .010 lights to earn a bye in the quarterfinals, where he was perfect off the starting line with a .000 light. He missed the Tree in the semifinals but ran right on his 13.18 dial to make up for it.
