Weather conditions: air temperature 89 degrees, relative humidity 19 percent, barometer 29.74 inches, adjusted altitude 2,581 feet, track temperature 99 degrees.

Olivarez with the starting line advantage and the lead until just before half track and that was when Torrence blasted by him to take his fourth National event win. I think that Torrence has clinched the Championship with this win. This was a good drag race. Steve Torrence's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.021), 330 ft(-0.012), 660ft(0.008), 1,000ft(0.025). MOV: 0.0362 seconds (approximately 14 feet).
