Bucknum and Sunoco had a lot to do with the colors and all that went on the car so I am pretty sure ours is close, but I am sure it is not spot on.
I am pretty sure the the colors were the colors of Sunoco at that time. But I will ask both Bucknam and Donohue when I get to the track tomorrow.

First practice session was something else.....found issues with the car, but believe we have them figured out, at least to be able to compete in the race and hopefully finish. Its something else bring a brand new car to a race and doing all of the very first setups and test before the race. I believe the car will perform well now for being the first time out at all.

Here is a clip from the track to day.



Tried many different setups. Seems to be a issue with the rear axles when the veh is lowered to the height that we would like for the race. It had an extremely bad vibration, raising the rear for the car helped a lot. So it will have to race that way tomorrow, until we can put out finger in the excite problem and then develop a fix. Other wise we qualified 13th. Not too bad for the very first time out on a track.

Looks just great. I'm amazed at how much David looks like his dad. I met Mark at Riverside Raceway in 1973 at the first International Race of Champions when they were running Porsche 911's, before they switched to Camaros. He was a really nice guy, very open and friendly and he signed my pit pass which I still have.

It's just fantastic to see the sons of these people carrying on the traditions and to see a Camaro with number 6 on the side running in races again. Absolute best of luck to the whole team!

Ok folks, we are back at VIR for some more testing of the #6 Camaro. After a strong showing at VIR in the last race of the Koni season we are back for a little more testing.
After making a few little changes in an effort to eliminate a drive line vibration, we will be testing on the track to see if the changes will hold in a rear world situation.
We will be here Tuesday and Wed testing the car and making changes. As far as I am know right now Burmos will be here testing also and the test sessions are open to the public.
