GORDON BOVEN, CHRIS HALL, SUE REYNOLDS & MATT GIUSTI WIN ON SECOND DAY OF STINKER STORES SEASON OPENER

Gordon Boven may have been disappointed after a runner-up finish on the first day of the Stinker Stores Season Opener to Cody Hiatt, but day two proved to be different. For one thing, he was not only motivated, but also very focused. In convincing fashion, Boven won the Super Pro class, drilling a .011 tree and delivering a perfect 9.560 on a 9.56 dial at 134.77 mph with his `72 Cuda. The former Nightfire champ defeated the rear-engined Dragster of Wade Hansen who recorded a runner-up finish following an identical .011 tree and a 7.99 (under by .002)-160.31, in a race decided by a mere .002 of a second.

Reigning Classic Grand Champion and past national No Box champ Chris Hall from Brigham City, Utah delivered six strong round wins to garner the overall Pro division. Driving his `70 Camaro, Hall stopped Ken Windley who redlighted (with a -.034 foul start) in the final round.

The Season Opener double header weekend helped jumpstart the 41st season of the Boise Muffler Gold Cup Championship Series, which starts in April and ends during the NAPA Auto Parts Halloween Classic XIX in mid-October.
