Dean Cook, who won the Stock title in Englishtown in 1983, ended a long drought by driving his C/Stock ’71 Mustang to victory. Cook, who attributed his good fortune to a four-leaf clover he found at New England Dragway, defeated his son, Dean II, in the third round and later defeated Lenny Williams in a race decided by just .0007-second at the stripe. The final was also extremely close with just .007-second separating Cook from Angelo DiTocco, who was seeking his first national event win since 1998. DiTocco earned a spot in the final when he cooled off one of the hottest drivers in the sport, Joe Santangelo, who is ranked third in both Stock and Super Stock.
