Canadians Bruce Boland and Larry Sinke met in the finals of the Super Chevy Show's Mickey Thompson Nitro Coupe Challenge Sunday at Maryland International Raceway and it was Sinke who blinked.
Boland benefitted from Sinke's red light foul, as Boland's 6.717 at 203.00 blast in his '33 Willys Nitro Coupe wouldn't have covered the 6.486 at 216.79 Sinke and his '67 Nova turned in after going red. Historians think it may have been the first all-Canadian Nitro Coupe final in the 26 years of the Super Chevy Show.
Even the exhibition jet dragster passes between another Canadian, Lou Pereira, and Jessica "Jessie" Harris were tight; each of the 8 jet passes made during the inaugural Super Chevy event at Maryland International Raceway were over 300 miles per hour, with one race being decided by only six hundredths of a second in Jessie Harris' favor (5.173 at 303.64 to 5.234 at 302.14).
