Kenny Compton has gotten into a winning groove as of late with his Edelbrock Street Bandit coupe. Despite the outrageously hot weather conditions this naturally aspirated engine performed flawlessly. Compton ran his quickest time under the lights on the last round of qualifying. He ran 8.74. On Sunday he took out Adrian Duran in the first round, 8.82 to an 8.98. Then a bye run in the second round ensured him a spot in the finals. Compton rocked to the tune of 9.17, he was on a strong pass and dropped the chutes early as he did not want to show his hand. The speed on the run was a mere 136.90 mph. In the finals he ran 8.90 to beat Matt Jones who had run an 8.96.
