As Steve ask ; Out of curiosity - did you get the Henry J or did he get you ?
Well, its been 30 years and hundreds of races, so I don't remember. I do remember the Henry, I think it was a trailered race car so he probably won this race. It was just qualifying as I don't think we were in the same bracket. I raced at Carlsbad too, until it closed. My Camaro was a street car, but was pretty quick. Ran low 8's here and high 12's at Carlsbad. 355ci with 292 casting "Turbo" angle plug chevy heads and full port and polish (huge ports, had to custom cut intake gaskets and hogged out the Hooker Super Comp headers and had to weld them), 485" Crane cam 236* @.050", B&M turbo 350 and Super Hole Shot converter, 4:56 posi 12 bolt, Holley Strip Dominator with Holley 750 double pumper, Mallory Unilite and coil.
