Making Camaro History

I am not trying to advertise here in this post. Just passing on some awsome info on a piece of Camaro History.

"In 1969, Roger Penske, Mark Donohue and Ronnie Bucknum teamed up to bring home the SCCA Trans-Am Championship for Chevrolet. They drove 1969 Camaros that year, with the dark blue cars sponsored by Sunoco. This year, exactly 40 years after that championship season, another pair of drivers named Donohue and Bucknum will once again race in a Camaro wearing Sunoco blue colors.

David Donohue is the son of Mark Donohue. Jeff Bucknum is the son of Ronnie Bucknum. Both sons have well established credentials in the world of racing and, at the October 4th final round of the 2009 Grand-Am KONI Challenge season, they will join forces at the wheel of a brand new Camaro, built by Riley Technologies of Mooresville, North Carolina.

With a paint scheme created by ESBG Designs, the new Camaro will look very much like the 1969 model, which is as Chevrolet intended with the introduction of their new street version of the car."

"The Grand-Am KONI Challenge Bosch Engineering Octoberfest race at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) will take place on Sunday, October 4."

Check out the complete article at

Pic's to come shortly as the car will be at the shop after the test session on the 28th.
