While Dave Friedman did not attend the round at Limerock he did take over a hundred photos of the next Trans Am race at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course, in Lexington, Ohio on June 11, 1967. 

The pictures are part of the Dave Friedman Collection at The Henry Ford.  You can see all of them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thehenryford/sets/72157632987770750/  Click on this link to see several pictures of the Mustangs, Cougars, Darts, Barracudas, Porsches, Alfas, Minis, BMWs and Cortinas that participated along with seven Camaros.

I am posting a few of the best pictures of each of the participating Camaros.  Enjoy!  Click on the corresponding link to see a larger and clearer version of each picture.

The first picture shows the pace lap along with the 1967 Camaro RS/SS convertible pace car (possibly one of the rare Indy Pace Car replicas).  The second picture also shows the pace lap.  You can see most of the Camaros that participated in this race in these two pictures.  The third picture shows the #1 Camaro of Roger West who finished in 8th, seven laps down and the #84 of Don Hamilton.  The fourth picture shows the #4 Camaro of John Moore who did not finish the race, completing only 21 laps before losing a wheel, as well as the #55 of Gary Morgan which DNF'd a few laps later with a blown engine.

Here are four pictures of the #16 Camaro driven by George Follmer to a 3rd place finish, 3 laps down to the winner.  George was driving the Penske Camaro for this race because Mark Donohue was at LeMans, France racing in the 24 hour race.

The first picture is another picture of the #16 Camaro of George Follmer.

The second picture shows the #55 Camaro of Gary Morgan.

The third and fourth pictures show the #71 Camaro of Craig Fisher who finished 6th, six laps behind the winner.  Notice that it says "Quiet Man" on the door.

Watkins Glen did not get an official SCCA Trans-Am race for 1967 so they created their own event which they called
the "Glen Challenge for Manufacturers". This race was added as a prelim for the USRRC event that same weekend (6-25-67).
Roger Penske had his Camaro entered, probably due to his friendship with the track owners, but when the Shelby and Bud
Moore teams did not show up, he bowed out and concentrated on the USRRC event with his Lola. Mark Donohue cleaned
house and dominated the USRRC events in '67, winning that championship. The pages below are gathered from Watkins
Glen press literature, Competition Press & Autoweek and SCCA's Sports Car magazine. (Jon Mello Collection)

Dave Friedman took some great photos of both the Glen Challenge for Manufacturers and the USRRC races at Watkins Glen International Raceway in Watkins Glen, New York on June 25, 1967.  The Henry Ford has not added his pictures to their Flickr page yet but you can see all 185 photos he took of both races here: http://thehenryford.artehouse.com/perl/collection.pl?collectionID=3096&productTypeID=62&ckon=leftNav   Click on this link to see several pictures of the Mustangs, Porsches, a Dart, a Fiat, an Alfa Romeo and a Renault that participated in the Glen Challenge for Manufacturers along with three Camaros.  They are interspersed with shots of the USRRC race.

I am posting the best pictures of the start of the race along with each of the participating Camaros.  Enjoy!  Click on the corresponding link to see a larger and clearer version of each picture.

These first four pictures of the start of the race were taken from the "Dunlop" flag stand that juts out above the start finish line.  What a neat perspective to see the standing start.
