In convincing fashion, Kris Krabill collected his second straight major Firebird event title during the recently concluded NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor Nitro Opener.

Non-qualifiers were Jason Rupert (6.26), Tom Padilla (6.34), Chris Davis (6.48) and Wally Giavia (6.81).

During eliminations, Krabill ran 5.90, 5.87, and a final round 5.85-245.63 with the Bucky Austin and Mike O'Brien-owned `78 Trans Am. They defeated Dan Horan Jr., who finished at 5.91-246.64, red-lighting his chances away in the final. Horan recorded top speed of the weekend at 248.00 mph.

Both Dennis LaCharite with his "Back in Black" `69 GTO and Robert Overholser at the wheel of the Don Nelson "California Hustler" `77 Trans Am, which recorded the quickest elapsed time of the weekend in first round of eliminations at 5.82, were the two semi-finalists.
