The caption reads:

It came on the final race of the second round of eliminations for Pro Stock. A rematch of the Pro Stock final at the Amarillo World’s Finals. Wayne Gapp, consistently in the 8’s, had led all qualifiers the previous Sunday at 8.90 but Jenkins had also qualified in the 8’s at 8.99, and in the first round had cut a somewhat dubious but nonetheless mind-boggling 8.64!

An extremely close contest was virtually assured, with Jenkins seeming at that point to be Chevrolet’s best hope for upending the Ford domination of the class.

The result: Gapp – 8.91, Jenkins – 8.96, both turning top speeds of 151.77 and Gapp the winner by a scant five foot margin. With this run, Jenkins became the first 8-second Pro Stock loser!

SUPERNATIONALS – Yet another all-Ford final marked the money run into Pro Stock Eliminator, and the usual close race resulted as World Champion Wayne Gpp edged U.S. Nationals Champion Bob Glidden in a classic side-by-side battle as Gapp overcame Glidden’s slight hole shot lead to take the wino on the top end with 8.87, 152.02 mph charge to Glidden’s 8.96, 152.80. It was the fourth time that each driver had reached a Pro Stock final this year, with Gapp scoring 2 wins and 2 runner-ups and Glidden settling for 3 runner-ups along with his lone U.S. Nationals win. It was also the second year in a row that Glidden had been nipped in a Supernationals final.
