Russell Boyce of Greenwood, South Carolina, made his first PINKS appearance memorable as he made it to the best two out of three final rounds in this '70 Ford Maverick. Having never raced the quarter-mile before, the car ran high 9s with a 460 that was bored and stroked to 502 ci. With no time to cool down or charge in between rounds, he was unable to make it to the line after the heat got to his Powerglide. Once he was home, the cooled-off tranny worked fine. Boyce later said that putting three Chevys on the trailer at once was his best memory from the event.
