Atco Raceway Update
« on: April 30, 2010, 02:55:21 AM »
Just thought I'd let you all know that we thrashed the new '67 Z28 race car today.  Had clutch problems with the freshened up clutch and it slipped all the way down the track.  I aborted the run as not to ruin the new parts.  We pulled the trans and clutch at the track, took it all apart and made adjustments in my trailer on the work bench.  Put it all back together and ran quicker than the current NHRA national record both in ET and MPH.  10.51 @ 126.10 MPH.  The record is a 10.53 at 125.96.  We will go for the record tomorrow.  If we ice it down and can get the car hooked up at the starting line, it should run in the 10.40's.

More later,

Jerry

Nice job, Jerry!  10.45 is a nice round number for the record.  All that work and you get to tear the motor down as a reward!?!

I know the CRG site was down for a while.  Just wanted to let all know here that CHP got the new NHRA National record on April 30, 2010 and lowered it quite a bit.  10.45 @ 126.21.  This was with a corrected altitude of 1100 ft.  We went through tear down, and certified by NHRA.  Now NHRA documented as the fastest Stock Eliminator Z28 in the country.  I will have have the new national record holder '67 Z28 at the Camaro Nats for all to see next month.  Hope to see everyone at Carlise this coming June.

Thanks to our customer base for all your support.

Jerry

Jerry congrats on setting the all time ET record for the 302 Z-28. When i saw this posted i couldnt believe it. Your Z is sweet. I always loved the 302 motor and what these engines can do and compete against big engines and out run them. I followed your stories and its incredible. From a customer to you, keep up the great work.
