The Camaro was dominant in '68 and smoked everybody on the way to the Trans-Am championship but Motorcade
magazine gave the award of "Outstanding Performance in the Trans-Am Series" to Javelin. The Javelin team had an
outstanding year for never having been in racing before. They exceeded all expectations and threw a real scare into
Ford for the right to the runner-up 2nd place slot. However, the award should have gone to Penske, Donohue and
Camaro. (Jon Mello Collection)

A couple of items from the December 14, 1968 issue of Competition Press & Autoweek. Dick Lang won the A-Sedan National Championship
for himself and Camaro at the Riverside ARRC event beating out John Martin in one of the factory-prepared Javelins. (Jon Mello Collection)

I just added the 1968 Kent 300 Trans-Am program, entry form, entry lists, pit assignments, etc... in reply #155 in this thread.
All of it comes from the collection of Frank Dihartce. Thanks for sharing it with us, Frank!

Thanks Frank and Jon.  Great stuff.  I love all the cool ads, both regioinal and national!  I especially like the '69 Camaro ad on page 3 where it says "leader of the pack."
