With the 2016 Holley LS Fest on the way (Sept 9-11) Lingenfelter, a sponsor for the event, is calling out all COPO Camaro owners to compete in the “Battle at the Green” COPO Camaro drag race. Aside from bragging rights, the winner will also walk away with a $10,000 prize. A chance to win a pretty penny and put your COPO Camaro to use, what more could you ask for?
“Our goal for 2016 is to have the largest contingent of COPO cars ever to compete for the $10,000 prize at this prestigious event,” said Ken Lingenfelter, CEO of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “Lingenfelter has a long history in drag racing and the COPO Camaro is probably the best factory drag race vehicle ever made. We are proud to co-sponsor this race with SAM Tech (School of Automotive Machinists & Technology).”
The COPO Camaros will compete under NHRA rules for Stock and Super Stock eliminator with a qualified pro ladder, based on a 32 car field. Aside from the $10,000 first place prize, there will also be a $1,000 prize for the runner up.
“We are very excited about the first Lingenfelter and SAM Tech COPO “Battle at the Green”. So far, we have had a tremendous response from COPO drivers, many of whom had never considered attending Holley LS Fest,” said Jud Massingill, director of education for the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology. “The staff, facilities, competitors and sponsors make this a must attend race every year. SAM Tech is proud to have sponsored Holley LS Fest since its inaugural race and we have enjoyed watching the race grow each year.”
