Mike Philips of Automotive Machine and Performance came to the Xtreme Division competition with a conventional 466-cube Buick in a field of pure-race style engines. It was a thing of beauty to see this Buick spin to the required 8,000 rpm (with a 3.25-inch main bearing, no less) and make over 800 peak horsepower in the process. Phillips also won the Match The Field award as his qualifying score was closest to the average for the field. His prize: a SuperFlow/DTS SF-1600 valvespring tester.
