Jerry Titus and Ronnie Bucknum took the victory with a fourth-overall finish in a Carroll Shelby Ford Mustang. Peter Gregg finished ninth overall and first in Trans Am under two liter, co-driving the Brumos Porche 911T with Sten Axelsson. Mark Donohue was the fastest qualifier of the 22 Trans Am entries, but Roger Penske-entered Chevrolet Camaro had two extended stops and finished second in class and 12th overall.
