Chris Lancaster of Warner Robbins, Georgia, had the SBSO field covered with his mod-motored Fox-body. Sporting a Four-Valve with a built bottom end and a pair of turbos, he laid down a 9.86-second shot in qualifying. While the elapsed time was great to see on the boards, it prevented Lancaster from running, as he needed to earn the equivalent NHRA license. On his final licensing pass, trans fluid got under the rear tires, causing him to abort the run and, ultimately, competing in the class for the event. He plans to be at Atlanta running in True Street, however.
