TOO QUICK: A year af­ter an­nounc­ing Pure Hell’s re­tire­ment, leg­endary own­er­tuner Rich Guasco can’t seem to quit fuel al­tereds, and driver Brian Hope is en­joy­ing the ex­ten­sion. Af­ter qual­i­fy­ing with a safe 6.33, the old-school setup blasted through the six-flat AA/ FA index with a crowd-pleas­ing­but-dis­qual­i­fy­ing 5.98. Hope has proven a wor­thy suc­ces­sor to Pure Hell’s ace pi­lot of the 1960s and early ’70s, Dale Emery, who passed away the week af­ter the race.
