Stevenson Motorsports @ Watkins Glen

Once again the Stevenson Motorsports Racing Team has put on one hell of a show. The team once again greeted me and all other race fans with open arms. Andrea, who is one of the pit mechanic's had invited me into the pits to see the race from a perspective that I thought I would never get to see. I had the opportunity to chat with SMPDUDE a fellow Camaro5 Guy about the race at the glen, there practice laps and everyone on the team couldn't stop talking about how much they appreciate there fans, and all of the comments that have been posted here on Camaro5.com. From what I have been told that you will be seeing more of the team members popping up on here on various threads to get feedback from everyone here on Camaro5. One more bit of good news, and i might set up a seperate thread on this one. As a fan appreciation stevenson motorsports, would like to do a "meet and great" at the Mid-Ohio event. If they get enough interest they want to have a small event where our cars will be allowed out with there cars, for photo's and what ever else they have in mind. So contact Stevenson Motorsports or SMPDUDE about the Mid-Ohio event, and we'll get a motorcade out to the event!!!

Serious business. Can we see these races on Speed? I love watching *real* "stock cars" race. They should rename NASCAR from "stock car" racing to "absolutely nothing stock about them" racing.

Motorhead, first, I love the t-shirt! I wish I had pit access at one of those races. I'd be grinning like an idiot. I was thinking of making a signature banner that said something like "Support Camaro road racing" and have images of the Stevenson Camaros in it.

Oh yeah, one of the Camaros is making a move! They are interviewing the Stevenson team manager on TV as he is doing it!

Glad to see endurance racing supported here

IMHO, historically muscle car owners have eschewed road and endurance racing.

They did awesome I agree. From what i have been told the full race should be re-aired next week on speed. The Speed Channel Guys were in the Stevenson Pit alot, cause one of the lead pit crew members, used to be a commentator for speed channel. So they love to talk to the Stevenson Team. BTW glad you like the shirt, i get alot of comments at the track.

The Gentlemen standing to the left of me in the white shirt in one of the shots BTW is Mr. Stevenson himself, he too is a down to earth guy and loves to come right down to the pits and cheer on his team. Oh another gentlemen by the name of Mr. Lutz, I believe most of you know who he is, was also in the pits as well checking in with all of the camaro teams to get feedback on his car!

Seriously though if anyone is interested in participating in an event for the Mid-Ohio race this month please don't hesitate in letting the Stevenson Team know this. They really are interested in doing something special for us fans!!!!

Thanks. That's a long haul from where I live. About 34 hours of driving and $350 worth of gas round trip. I'll have to check into the cost of a flight, staying 2 nights and renting a car. Still won't be cheap but I'd sure love to see these cars on the track.

Unfortunately the idiot "developers" out here in southern California got rid of the Riverside International Raceway where the old Penske/Donohue cars and many many greats use to run. So what did the developers put in place of this legendary (and profitable) racetrack? Something extraordinary; something awesome; something so unlike anything anywhere it boggles the mind... they put... a SHOPPING MALL!!! Yes boys and girls, they built a K-Mart and that's what replaced this fabulous racetrack.

I remember that track; attended many races there. I still have race programs and memorabilia from it's heyday in the late 60's early 70's. I have a pit pass from the first International Race Of Champions the year they ran Porsche 911's; (they switched to Camaro's afterwards which produced the IROC version) and on that pit pass I have the signatures of Dan Gurney, Jackie Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi... and Mark Donohue.

I would love to see Mark's son driving a new Sunoco Camaro on a race course. Go team!

Thank you motorhead for dropping in. It was one heck of a race and I will not give any details as to not to spoil it for every one.
The gt cars put up a hard fight but again failed to make it to the podium due to tire issues. Grand am is going to have to do something about these tire problems so we can compete.
On another note so you will know the skill of our drivers and the potential of these cars. During the rain out 57 car was 8 seconds faster than the rest of the field and was faster than th dp's

This is so cool. A real no kidding race team who greets fans and actually likes talking with them. Wonder if I could get a wing for my camaro...just kidding. I would definitely go if it was closer but I do hope alot of C5 folks jump on this and show support to guys actually racing our car (sort of... minus all the hi performance parts LOL).

SURPRISE!!!! thse are built for race all out but I was dumbfounded to find that the drive train is very much stock....in fact at Limerock they had to run restrictor plates....More safety stuff and alot of "Makeing it light", brakes are better also. As some one said here in the forums..I like to watch real "stock" car racing, and this series is very very close.
Rock on Stevenson..see ya at Limerock later in the series.
