Congrats! Nice car and great driving.

So is there W/L record for this show? Has anyone in a Camaro lost yet?

Woot! Well done Erik!

They should have let you drive both cars, it might have been a fair fight at that point

The one other Camaro5 show I saw, we won that too. Not sure if there are any others.

Very well said!!

Good job man; win or lose you looked like a pro...solid, consistent, under control. The car did well but the "driver mod" made the difference. Watching the video this looked like a blast. You not only represented C5, but both of you did an outstanding job of representing American muscle car racing with cool and class; no immature "fast and furious" type of crap. Huge grats on your win!

Were either of you running Royal Purple? I use it and it's great stuff.

First of all, I would like to thank all of you for the kind words! I did my best to represent you well and bring home the win, and luckily I did just that

Jeff was (and is) a great guy with an awesome car! If I did have Challenger, it would be done like his. He even bought me a beer after the event

Thank you Sir! I appreciate the kind words

I was running Royal Purple in my rear end (that sounds dirty...) but not in the motor that time.
