SPORTSMAN WINNERS LEAD GOODYEAR'S EIGHT NORWALK WINNERS

NORWALK, Ohio (June 28, 2010) -- Nobody beats Ben Wenzel and his 1967 Chevrolet Camaro for 43 straight years.

Wenzel, driving the same car he raced to victory in the 1967 US Nationals at Indianapolis, won for the first time since that race when he won the Stock Eliminator category at the NHRA's Summit Racing Equipment Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park.

Wenzel was among eight drivers who raced to victory on Goodyear Eagles at Norwalk.

Goodyear's other winners at Norwalk included Larry Dixon (in Top Fuel), Tim Wilkerson (Funny Car), Greg Anderson (Pro Stock), Mike Walter (Super Stock), Bill Reichert (Top Alcohol Dragster), Al Ackerman (Competition Eliminator) and Pat Musi (Pro Mod).

Wenzel, 67, is "retired." He beat Stock Eliminator standouts Pete Biondo and David Rampy in his final two rounds at Norwalk.

Reichert won for the third time at Norwalk. Musi's win was his first in national event competition and it came in his first final round appearance since 1981.
