The Street Bandit class combined EFI Renegade and Hot Street into one class. During eliminations, if an EFI Renegade raced a Hot Street car, the quickest e.t. from the Bradenton event served as an index. If cars from the same class raced, it would be heads-up. For Street Bandit, three racers showed up: EFI Renegade racers Alton Clements and Bart Tobener, and Hot Street racer Don Bowles. When the dust and confusion settled, Alton Clements was the winner. He had a first-round bye, and then ran closest to the EFI Renegade index e.t. of 8.38, albeit an 8.54 at 163 mph.
