Well Done Erik!

Nice win!

I remember seeing your car at the first fest and was very impressed then... Obviously you've got it dialed in!

I must say, very impressive Erik. Looks like your car did very well and you represented C5 to the fullest.

I'd also like to tip my cap to Jeff. Not only was he very cool during the whole thing, but he also has a very nice Challenger. It's nice to see more mutual respect than the typical douchebaggery we come to expect these days.

The statement there is no replacement for displacement is all well and true.....but if you can't put the power down, it's meaningless...

We got 3 runs in, I ran 12.7, 12.8, 12.7 at the same mph each time. He was all over the place with traction issues and whatnot, so as in road racing, a consistent car will always be faster that a high power car.

Good job Erik. I was wandering what was up with his run. I was thinking that my stock V6 could almost run with that. Way to represent team Camaro!!!

Yeah, in the video, it looked like the Challenger just spun the entire way down the track. He had more HP but all three events were really up to driver skill.

Nice job and CONGRATS!
