Running in Brian Mitchell's old Wizard 1 ride, engine-builder Dan Rawls strutted his stuff with a push-rod/nitrous combo. With 364 cubes built by his own hand, Dan is proud to pilot the quickest and fastest nitrous Renegade around. He gives lots of props to his nitrous sponsor, Induction Solutions, especially for that company's lightweight ADRL-style solenoids. While getting his ride to 60-foot was an issue, Dan still qualified in the top three, right behind Alton, with an 8.39/164 hit. After easing past Mike Catapano in Round 1 and having a close call with Bart Tobener in Round 2, the track got the best of Dan in the finals and Alton took the easy win (8.389 to 11.356).
