Super Street Outlaw
Hellion Power Systems main man John Urist can only wish that his Giants were trying to get one for the thumb. Instead, John cemented himself in the history books as one of the most dominant racers in Mustang racing lore by taking the Bowling Green win and earning his fifth Nitto Diamond Tree ring. This season hasn't been the cakewalk of year's past, however. John had plenty of worthy challengers, and he only qualified in the fifth spot with a 7.52/194 run. However, he would find his e.t. stride in eliminations running a bracket-like string of 7.30 passes every round. While a few racers actually beat John at the Tree, his closest challenger, Don Burton, only got within 0.2. The final round was an anti-climactic race that found John running a 7.31 when he could have coasted to the stripe for another win.
