The finale of the 3-race Crower Cup series was held at Barona 1/8th Mile Dragstrip down in Lakeside, California on a sunny Saturday, November 23rd. Defending champion Rick Reynolds was already out of the running, with the top 3 in points going in being Jeff Martin, Todd Ferguson, and Rick's daughter, Remy Reynolds. Todd was eliminated early, while Jeff Martin would drop out in the quarterfinals. That'd leave Remy Reynolds with a path in front of her to take the championship.
The Crower Cup Finals would come down to her, in her 1971 Ford Pinto, going up against Richard Bowen and his 1969 Chevy Nova. Remy would get off to a good head start, her .047 reaction time giving her a good advantage over Richard's .080. She needed that advantage, as her 5.901 E/T on her 5.85 dial would be a little weaker than Richard's 5.977 E/T on a 5.95 dial. Remy's 0.098 total package would just edge out Richard's 0.107, giving her the Crower Cup bracket win, and the overall championship with her two overall Crower Cup win.
Remy's 71 Pinto (Near) up against Richard's 69 Nova (Far) in the Crower FinalsRemy would get her 9th overall Wally, her 4th outside the Junior's, and her second Crower Cup championship.
