The crown prince of the Joliet True Street shootout has to be Glen Hunter, who made the trip from Long Island, New York, with his '56 Chevy. After three back-to-back passes down the blacktop, Glen had an average time of 9.48 on nearly all three passes with a best top speed of 142.19 mph. He was only a tenth of a second off on his third run. Now that's some solid driving. Glen made the drive all the way from New York by his lonesome. One by one his friends and family all decided they had something better that weekend, and going racing in Illinois was not at the top of their list. Glen may have made the trip solo, but now everybody knows what his vehicle did that weekend. Hopefully after reading this he'll have some salt to rub in their wounds. Oh yeah, we also gave Glen an Editor's Choice Drag Race award as well. Double whammy!
