For the first time in the history of the “Go or Blow” event, the car won. The 1990 Chev Lumina, donated by Carl Gilbert, ran at full throttle (max R.P.M. 5100) for a full hour with little more that an occasional puff of smoke from the wheel wells.

Winner of the Pit Crew Challenge, Greg Denbrok shows off his form on way to a one-minute 5.93 second time to jack up a car, take off the wheel, run to the finish line, run back, put the wheel back on and run to the finish line again.
