"Young Gun" Jeremy McGee of Limestone, Tennessee, took home honors for his '73 Dodge Challenger-a four-year project powered by a 360, with a .454 Crane cam, Edelbrock intake, and Dynomax headers.

Big Jack Callicoat came from Huntington, West Virginia, with his 12-second street Barracuda-a '72 model with a nasty Edelbrock-headed 440 under the hood.

Gene Egan, from nearby Kingsport, Tennessee, drove his "Scamp with an attitude"-a former six-cylinder machine now sporting wall-to-wall wedge power in the form of a 440 Magnum.
