There was a first-time winner in Stock after Mark Kirby turned on the win light in the final round against Jeff Jerome, who fouled. Kirby, in his F/SA ’73 Duster, had to feel good about his chances after opening eliminations with a .001 light against round-one opponent Cliff Hanson and then winning a tough round-two battle against five-time world champion Justin Lamb. Kirby also kept Super Stock champ Rizzoli from a possible double in the quarterfinals. A week before scoring his first national event victory, Kirby was a runner-up at the Division 7 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series doubleheader in Sonoma.
