In recent memory, there are always a select few racers that personify a class. When it comes the high-rpm, naturally aspirated maniacs in Hot Street, the poster boy is Charlie Booze. Of course, being successful means you have a target on your car. Charlie is cool under the spotlight, however. He qualified at a familiar spot atop the sheet with an 8.469/154.18 crack, and he was hanging the hoops high on nearly every pass. After driving around the formidable Don Bowles in Round 1, Charlie rode a bye run into the finals against Tim Eichorn. Charlie chopped down the Tree and Tim lit the red bulb, so it was all over just as it started. Chalk up another one for Mr. Hot Street.
