You’re looking at the latest record setter. The American Racing Headers and FARKS-Supercar sponsored 2010 Camaro laid down a world-record smashing 7.70-seconds in the quarter mile during a final-round appearance at the NMCA event at Summit Motorsports Park in Ohio.
The drivers, George Farkouh and Louis Flippides, knew the 2010 Camaro was capable of the time, but feared pushing the car on the hot, humid day at the track. But, Flippides had this to say about the run:
Overall the weekend went very smooth. We knew the car had the potential to set the record, but we wanted to make sure that we did not hurt any parts during the event. At our last race in Joliet, Illinois, we blew a head gasket and started to pump water. We did not want a repeat performance of that experience. The weather was hot and humid in Ohio, and we worked around some rain that washed out the track Saturday night. Regardless, the NMCA track workers did a great job making sure the track was in good shape for the final day of racing.
