In Super Pro the final round came down to two of ESTA’s most seasoned competitors as Iggy Falcone was going for his second straight win in his ’65 GTO, but Gene Stankivitz driving his dragster was able to stop Iggy and claim the “Wally” and the $1,000 winners purse.
In an extremely close final round, Gene held a slight edge at the tree with a .0238 to .0299 advantage and ran a 4.886 at 134.38 on his 4.85 dial to turn back Iggy’s 6.435 at 107.61 mph run on his 6.40 dial. Gene’s winning margin was .0051.
