On Monday, the team made four runs — just enough for Prock to earn his Top Fuel license. Never mind the fact that Prock never made it to the finish line; he shut off the engine at 600- or 800-feet every lap. However, Prock’s rookie year involved more positive results than negative, both on and off the track. And lastly, when all was said and done, Prock was awarded rookie-of-the-year honors. “I don’t think it could’ve gone much better,” Prock said.
