Here the George Cheyne/Dave Bean no. 88 Pinto dukes it out with the likes of Porsche, Corvette, and BMW on the road course. This car was a serious competitor; sponsored by Galpin Ford rentals, it sported racing improvements courtesy of Shankle Engineering and LeGrand Race Cars, two well respected race car teams at the time.
It finished 10th in the GTU class (ahead of some 911S DNFs) and 29th overall, 45 laps off the lead of Peter Gregg in the no. 59 Brumos Porsche Carrera.
