Old Camaro beats new and Boudreau takes care of the legendary Richardson.

 1352 Bill Hawk                             778 Jimmy DeFrank                
C4                   0.034 10.269 127.80     ****WINNER****  0.016 10.260 128.21

Hawk has been so strong in this Ford Shelby that even a racer with the creds of DeFrank has to be considered an underdog.

I hear barking as the Pace Car Camaro just edges the very rare Shelby. The underdog wins B/SA.

Jimmy DeFrank's MOV: 0.0276 seconds (approximately 5 feet).
