CHEVY CAMARO FINAL NOTES:
Kurt Johnson, AC Delco Camaro Z28, faces Mike Edwards in the Pro Stock Final.
* Today's Pro Stock final marks the first time this season that the Camaro Z28 has reached the final in an NHRA points event. Kurt Johnson did make it into the final at the non-points Winston Invitational in Rockingham this year.
* The last time a Camaro won in NHRA Pro Stock was in 1988. Harry Scribner was the last Camaro driver to win in this category. He defeated Don Beverley's Olds Ciera in the final round at the 1988 Autolite Nationals in Sonoma, Calif., on a holeshot, 7.498/184.50 to 7.493/183.59.
* Chevrolet returned to NHRA competition in 1997, and in 1998 Chevrolet entered the Pro Stock ranks with three Camaro Z28s: Kurt Johnson, Larry Morgan and Tom Hammonds. Hammonds will debut his Camaro Z28 Pro Stock later this season.
