Thanks for sharing Rick. Seems a shame to just throw away all that serious drag racing equity. I gather the Pontiac bodied cars will still survive a few more active years since they're so competitive. Then the privateers will still campaign them well after their prime.

Pontiac Nirtofish wins the "BIG GO" w/ Greg Stanfield at the wheel



The wild, upset-filled nature of this year's U.S. Nationals definitely spilled over to Pro Stock where Stanfield upset low qualifier Mike Edwards on a final-round holeshot, 6.665 to 6.627, thanks to a .020 to .084 holeshot. The victory is Stanfield's fourth in the class and moved Stanfield to third place in points, 82 points behind Edwards.

"This is just a huge win for me, especially after coming so close here last year [in a.001-second loss to Jeg Coughlin in the final]," said Stanfield. "And it was really exciting for our Nitro Fish Gear team owner, Kenny Koretsky, who was the Pro Stock runner-up at the 2004 Indy [which was the 50th anniversary of the event].

"We came here with our first complete DRCE-3 engine, which makes more power than our old combination, and we also got the suspension straightened out to make good use of that extra power. We were struggling a lot earlier in the year, and I was beginning to doubt if I could get the job done. But I had promised Kenny that Id get him at least one Wally this season, and Im going to give him the trophy right after this race. I hope that we can win a few more."

Stanfield, a four-time Super Stock champion who was the runner-up here last year, drove the Nitro Fish Pontiac past an out-of-shape Allen Johnson in the semifinals with a 6.64 that earned him final-round lane choice. Prior to that, Stanfield had trailered Warren Johnson and Jason Line with a pair of 6.62s.

Talked with an a big Pro Stock fan last friday at Maple Grove, and
this class can race these cars for up to five years after the end of manufacturing of GTO / GXP models ... FYI.

Pontiac won its first national event title when Butch Leal won the Pro Stock class at the 1985 Southern Nationals in Atlanta. Jack Chrisman won the Top Eliminator crown (the largest prize in drag racing) at the 1962 NHRA Nationals in Indianapolis with a Pontiac powered dragster. Pontiac has 158 victories in NHRA Pro Stock competition; the most wins by any manufacturer in the history of the sport and has won 10 NHRA Manufacturers Cups.
