Mild-mannered in his personal demeanor but rather vicious on the race track, Wayne Gapp made some of the biggest headlines in 1974 with his controversial 4-door Maverick that took advantage of a wheelbase rule, allowing him to run 125 lbs. lighter than the competition. This advantage, coupled with the tremendous horsepower generated by Gapp & Roush-prepared engines, saw Gapp produce a tremendous record with a Grandnational-Molson victory and Summernationals runner-up along with the a new National Record of 8.84. Gapp also finished second in the Pro Point Standings at the end of the WCS season and is favored to fend off the challenge of Wally Booth’s AMC Hornet for the overall title at the Supernationals/World Finals
