The Junkman Rolls with the Camaros at Atlanta Motor Speedway!

Well folks, it's just as the title says. Corvettes Against Breast Cancer opened the event up this year to the Porsche and 5th generation Camaro owners. PLENTY of Camaros showed up too! You all were well represented! Since I was doing a detailing clinic at the track, I got to do all my runs back to back. Thus, I ended up on the track with the Vettes, the Camaros and I also did a run with a group of cars that consisted of a Challenger, Chargers and a Porsche (no offense, but that group was slow as hell!).

Anyway as you will see in the videos, most of the Camaro guys were new at this and the turns were scaring the crap out of them. I experienced the same thing my first time around 3 years ago so that by no means is a slam. That is a very real sensation when you do this for the first time so I was at an advantage.. Now that I have about 80 laps around that monster under my belt, I am a lot more comfortable with rolling that puppy!

So here is the video of my run around the track with the Camaros. This was by far the most fun ride I had that day. The run that I did at night with the lights on was by far my scariest! That run had all the maniacs on the track and there was a Camaro out there that was as wild as I was!

Oh by the way, the hottie you hear in the background with me stopped me just before I hit pit row and asked if she could roll with the Junkman. Needless to say, I couldn't say no to her fine self so I had company on this trip, and a few others!

If you missed out on this and live in the area, you are CRAZY!

Dang, that sucks! I was hit by a drunk motorcyclist. My car looked like crap but I drove it down anyway. Couldn't miss this for nothing. Car's in the shop now.

Mine wasn't that bad, although there was $4500.00 worth of damage!

Next year is supposed to be bigger! I guess I'll see you there!
