The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Street Car Supernationals is in the record books. Taking a page from the 1962 epic, The Longest Day, the event was challenged by inclement weather and gusting winds. In the interest of safety, the track was shortened from the traditional quarter-mile strip to 1/8 mile due to the stubborn, swirling wind. When the smoke cleared, Rod Burbage of Redding, Calif., stood alone at the finish line, claiming the $20,000 winner’s check.

Burbage faced Giuseppe Gentile of Sun Valley, Calif. in the Pro Street finale. Although Giuseppe posted a better reaction time, Burbage’s Corvette beat him to the finish line, stopping the 1/8-mile clocks at 4.039 sec./186.72 mph.

Brad Personnett of Elkhart, Ind., set Pro Street top speed of the meet – 250.37 mph – before the track was shortened.

Mike Murillo of San Antonio, Tex. Defeated Doug Sikora of Barstow, Calif. in the Outlaw 10.5 class.
