CLERMONT, Ind. --

Charlie Westcott Jr.
Charlie Westcott Jr., isn't accustomed to being in the limelight, but that all changed in the blink of an eye after he won the $10,000 top prize for his victory in the Mopar Super Stock Hemi Challenge event at the NHRA Mac Tools U.S. Nationals on Friday night. Westcott, Jr., performed flawlessly en route the win, having fended off more than 25 of the best SS/AA division drivers in the country to earn the victory.

"Winning the Hemi Challenge is just awesome," Westcott, Jr., said. "Not only did we win one of the biggest events of the year, but we were able to beat the West Coast Hemis team, which was a real challenge. All day on Thursday they were better than we were, but today that turned around. We were able to put together some good runs, and that helped us get our first Hemi Challenge title."

Westcott, Jr., owns the War Fish entry that he piloted to the win. The 1968 Plymouth Barracuda features a Chrysler 426 Hemi engine. The Mopar Super Stock Hemi Challenge showcases the ultimate in heads-up, door-slammer sportsman competition between the limited production, factory-built Hemi-powered Plymouth Barracudas and Dodge Darts.
