Wanted to share this with the CRG folks and people who hang out here.  I posted a new link on our CHP home page for all to read.  

In the terms of record breaking year, I didn't mean with the business.  What I'm saying is it was a spectacular 2010 racing season for Team Camaro Hi-Perfomance in both performance and competition.  Between setting a new NHRA "certified" national record and recording the quickest elapsed time & mph ever recorded by a stock 302 Z28 Camaro, we finished out the racing season in the "Top 10 Drivers" for Stock Eliminator.  Out of 233 competitors in division one's Stock Eliminator, we finished 9th in the point standings for the year.  That means a pay out for the "Top 10" drivers and some recognition at the NHRA awards banquet this Winter.

I want to thank all of our customer base, friends and family for your support this season.  Without you, this would not have been possible.  I am humbled by the whole experience this year, and it will be very hard to top this season in 2011.  We will give it our best effort though.

This new link is still in the building stages.  The paragraphs are not separated (they will be) and the software that runs it right now will not allow us to modify it.  It will be modified when time permits so that it's easier reading for everyone.  All of the photographs are posted in order for the season, starting top left to right and moving downward.  All photos are captioned too.  When you click on the photo, it will enlarge with the caption.  I hope that it gives everyone who hangs out here a better understanding of all that goes on at NHRA National Events and what is involved in setting an official NHRA National Record.

Thanks to everyone!

Jerry

Just one incredible ride both accomplishing a top 10 performance which is NO easy feat, and the national record performing runs. And I remember when these cars were new running S/Stock back then and look what they are doing today. Just incredible! Congratulatons Jerry!

What would you say was the main reason for the record time and MPH after all these years?

Great job,

Different piston ring combinations, data loggers allowed to monitor the clutch, gearing, engine and driveshaft, camshaft lobe seperation, duration and a lot of very hard work and never giving up.

Thanks for all the kind words. 

I also forgot to mention that I also get to share what we learn in Stock Eliminator with engines that we build for our customer base.  Every customer with a 302, 350, 396 and ZL1 engine has been more than satisified with our work.  And HP numbers have been impressive.  We can usually get a stock 302 that will run on pump gas to make in the 360-380 HP range.  And if we step it up with some minor mods, some of the 302's that we've done have made well over 425+ HP.

Have also learned a lot with exhaust EGT's and tuning Holley carbs on the dyno.........jetting, power valves, and more.  I use this knowledge too with the carbs that I restore for customers.  We can also thank NHRA's Stock Eliminator Class for all that we've leanred...........and having to work with the glass ceiling in this very competitive class.
