Gary Blair -- FordUnfortunately, Gary Blair from Blair Racing wasn't able to summon up any good luck during his first round of qualifying. His big Ford arrived at World Products without ever running on the dyno in its current configuration.

He choose to change his oil during his 30-minute tuning period, and when trying to restart the engine, found the distributor shaft seized. Blair, unable to find a replacement distributor in the 16 minutes of tuning time he had left, and had to withdrawal from competition as a DNQ.
