PRO STOCK TRUCK -- CHEVY S-10 PICKUP

PRESS NOTE NO. 6

FINAL ELIMINATION:

Jerry Haas (Chevy S-10), left lane:  7.899/172.91, .500 R/T
Darrell Alderman (Dodge Dakota), right lane:  7.797/172.21, .424 R/T -- Winner

* Alderman wins his third Pro Stock Truck Exhibition final and Dodge's fifth.

* The score following eight exhibition events is Chevy 3, Dodge 5. In driver victories it's Lingenfelter 3, Alderman 3, Geoffrion 2.

· 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."
