13.16 @ 108.64 Chevelle SS454, 13.53 @ 102.36 Monte Carlo SS454: This was a battle of the 454s, the 450hp LS6 in the Chevelle vs. the 365hp LS5 in the Monte Carlo. Both qualified in the 13.50 range. In Round 1, Mike Waligoria speed-shifted the Chevelle to a 13.222, far ahead of Eric Simpson's Monte Carlo. Round 2 had Eric out front with an early lead, but Mike was letting it all hang out to come from behind. It was his best run of the weekend-13.167 at 108.53-but was more than .350 quicker than his qualifying time, resulting in a DQ. Winning at the Pure Stock Drags isn't always about more power.
