Video: ARH/Farks 7.99 World Record Pass!

Okay guys.. I'm not gonna say this was easy or that we have the car totally figured out, because we still have some work to do. But, the learning curve seems to finally be heading in the right direction!

I really can't say enough about our sponsors and all those that help us out. So, on behalf of the American Racing Headers / Farks Supercars Team, I would like to give a HUGE Thank You to:

Matt and the Tune Time Performance crew
Rodney and the RPM Transmissions team
All those involved at Procharger
Joe from Jesel
Joe from ProTorque
Brian from Late Model Engines
All those from Mast Motorsports
John, Matt and Chris from JTM Motorsports
Kip from Cam Motion
Tom from Hendrix Engineering
Frank at the DriveShaft Shop
and Brian from F.A.S.T.



Enjoy, Camaro5 Family!
