Possible Camaro in NHRA Pro Stock in 2011
Posted by: admin In: Main ()
Looks like there may be some 2010 Camaro Pro Stock cars in NHRA next year
Chassis builder Jerry Bickel confirmed there’s a strong likelihood fans will see a Camaro in NHRA Pro Stock in 2011. At least that’s what he’s working towards.
Bickel confirmed his shop, along with Kirkman Composites, will manufacture the bodies which will eventually be sold to the leading chassis builders. GM has given Bickel and the NHRA permission to reproduce the bodies, which are currently legal for sportsman competition but using the Pro Stock guidelines. Final approval for the Pro Stock will come at a later date.
“We have GM’s blessing and they are working with us,” Bickel confirmed. “When GM dropped out of NHRA Pro Stock, I approached the NHRA about building one. I asked them if [GM] didn’t come back if they’d approve our Camaro body legal for Pro Stock, if I built it to the new NHRA Pro Stock standards.”
