After an absence from the class, nitrous maven Sam Vincent took advantage of the home-cooking to return to SSO racing at Bowling Green. Sam revamped his 450ci combo with twin Dominators, a one-off sheetmetal intake, and three blasts of Nitrous Express juice. The mods certainly paid off, as Sam was right in the thick of the qualifying action thanks to a 7.48/184 pass. In Round 2, Sam had his first test against fellow local Joel Greathouse. Joel got the jump, but Sam had a 0.2 upper hand at the stripe. Sam rode a bye into the finals against John Urist, but he spun the tires early in the run and it was all over.
