Mark wrapped up the Trans-Am championship for Chevrolet by winning at Bryar. This was his 8th victory in a
row and he would end up winning 10 of the 13 Trans-Am races in '68. A dominant effort. Tony Adamowicz
won the under-2-liter class and also had a dominant 1968, helping Porsche win U-2 that year.

Thanks to Mr Lathrop and Jon for all these, they are like gold to those who love the T/A aspect of the Camaro HP development.

Glad you enjoyed this feature, James. Here is some more info from one of my issues of Competition Press.

This first tidbit says Donohue had the championship locked up prior to Bryar but Camaro
still needed three points so mathematically Javelin and Mustang were still in the running.
