Richie Pauley car is likely the highest prepared CJ in a stock class ever. In this video I think he was running about 10.40's . A 455 1970 Buick was  running about 10.10's  and a late model fuel injected Camaro with 376 cu in running from 9.91 to 10.07 times. The Camaro won.
Where NHRA factors the horsepower does create non competitive combinations.  The CJ and the Buick have been honed for all these years - it does appear to me the fuel injected Camaro should have the horsepower rating looked at.  Anyway - great racing - especially the 50 year old cars.
Thanks 4284spd for the video.
