Super Street Outlaw
We didn't actually see it, but we'd have to guess that even the melancholy Don "Burndown" Burton cracked a smile resulting from his opening-weekend success. After squeezing out a piston ring during testing and rebuilding his engine on Friday, he qualified in the third spot thanks to a 7.591/191.24 pass. Don easily dispatched Perry Santini and Jon McDonald before riding a bye run into the finals against John Urist. In the round that counts, Don must have known John's car was hurt, as the two had an epic starting-line duel before Don eventually took the tree and blasted the victory with a 7.591 at 192.06.
