Default 1968 Summer Nationals

Looking for results from the event for the 1968 NHRA Summer Nationals, specifically for the Pure Stock E/D classes, for my uncle.

He ran in his Oldsmobile 442. Appreciate any of you who can point me in the right direction.

I don't believe they ran Pure Stock at national events.

So granted I was a fuzzy headed HPHS Sophomore in the summer of 68 and I may now be just a little fuzzy period. But wasn’t the first Summer’s held at York in 69 and then the first one at E-town in 70. Also Mark correctly points out to my recollection pure stock was not contested at National events. I do recall a pristine medium gray 68 442 run out of the Codwise Esso station in New Brunswick by a guy named Big John in F/SA though…

The first NHRA Summernationals was held at York....1970

The next year was the start of the event being run at Englishtown....1971

The Springnationals were run at Englishtown in 1968 after previously being run at Bristol

There was no Pure Stock classes run in that era at any of those events

Stock yes but not pure stock....

My car was at the Bristol event in 1967...I was not there but my partner was with our sedan delivery
We had an entry for the 1968 Englishtown event but handed it off to some friends when our engine developed a cracked block
We raced the first 2 Summernational events at both York and E-town...
