· This is the first victory for Dodge based on performance. · Dodge's four previous victories were on holeshots and one red light.
HAAS: "I let the clutch out and it brought the Chevy S-10 to its knees. It bogged, the motor just shut off, dropping rpm, then picked up again. It was all over by that time. He had me by a good car length. I had a little more speed, but I was a tenth (in reaction time) behind him. You can't cut a light bogging."
