6:23 p.m. The final features an old-style Camaro (Raftery) against a late-model Camaro (Gulitti). Both are high-tech, all-out racing machines that never saw the GM assembly line.

Raftery had a small edge at the green, but Gulitti was closer to his dial-in to take the win. Bob Gulitti's MOV: 0.0033 seconds (approximately 12 inches). Great race!
