There's quite a story behind last year's Stock eliminator winner at the season opening Division 6 Lucas Oil Drag Race Series at Firebird. Having sat out quite a number of seasons on the NHRA tour, Canadian Clarence Bidniak, the "Willington Flash", chose the Ignitor as the event and Firebird as the site of his return to the NHRA point's meet series. Amazingly enough, he toppled a strong field of Stock eliminator racers at the 39th Annual Ignitor, winning the entire event.
