This was Carpenter's first attempt to qualify "The World's Fastest '55 Chevy" for an IHRA event since experiencing a devastating crash in May. Repairs to the Embee Performance and Doherty Motorsports sponsored Chevrolet were completed in a remarkable seven weeks.

Charles Carpenter Quote:

"We just don't have enough runs on the car since the wreck. We have changed to a 728 (cubic inch) engine, installed a full-floater axle, and rebuilt about half of the car. But we learned something of real value in the third qualifying round regarding our set-up. Now we'll take that to our next event at the Quick 8 race in Jacksonville (N.C.) next weekend and play it out."
