Following a near-double at the NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, where he posted a win in Super Stock and a runner-up finish in Stock, Monty Bogan returned to the winner’s circle in Bristol, where he claimed the Stock title in his D/SA ’67 Camaro by beating Mike Cotten. Not surprisingly, the final was decided by just a thousandth of a second with Bogan leaving first with a .010 light and turning on the win light with an 11.094 on his 11.10 dial. Cotten, a former AHRA series champ who raced in his first NHRA final in 1984 and has since appeared in six more, was sharp with a .019 light and an 11.173 on his 11.18 prediction.
