After Pennington's Corvette smoked everything in sight, suspicious competitors were voicing doubts about its legitimacy. Immediately after its last run, Terry Pennington began a voluntary, on-the-spot teardown. Chief Tech Inspector Scott Tiemann broke out the micrometers and cc'ing gear. Competitors were present to see that the Corvette had no illegal parts, no porting anywhere, a 100 percent stock cam, legal bore, stroke, and compression. Naysayers smelled a rat, but instead, got whupped by one.
