Defending Super Street Outlaw champion John Urist says he did all that he could to beat Sam Vincent in the final, but ultimately, John's supercharged coupe simply didn't have the steam to stay with Sam's nitrous-powered notch. "At the weight we have to run with our combination, there's no way we could've gone 0.30-anything in these weather conditions (hot, humid)," says John. "It's not really the nitrous' effectiveness in the heat-it's just physics. We've got too much mass to move to run numbers like that."
