Last weekend, America’s favorite sports car stole the show at Corvettes at Carlisle and the Goodguys West Coast Nationals. From the show grounds to the Autocross track, Corvettes of all generations wowed the crowds and reminded fans young and old about why they’ve become high-performance legends.
Just like in years past, we made the trip to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, with our fully stocked Ridetech rig to soak in a weekend of Corvette fun. The historic event has established itself as a must-attend, and this year certainly didn’t disappoint.
Walking the Carlisle Fairgrounds, there were Corvettes as a far as the eye could see. From perfect restorations to track-ready hot rods, there was something for everyone out on the grass. When combined with the massive swap meet and Corvette seminars, it made for an action-packed weekend.
Scott Fraser’s Corvette Wins the Street Machine Class at Pleasanton
Over on the West Coast, Scott Fraser and his dark blue 1987 Corvette made waves the Goodguys West Coast Nationals. Scott’s C4 has been a labor of love; he’s spent countless nights and weekends prepping it for the Autocross course. The car features a freshly built LS6 backed by ZF 6-speed transmission, while Ridetech TQ triple adjustable suspension is used up front and in the rear.
Pleasanton was Scott’s second time running his Corvette in competition. After adjusting the gearing the night before, he was able to get the car running how he wanted. As the weekend progressed, he fine-tuned his suspension on-the-go to get the best grip in the corners.
When it was all said and done, Scott pushed the car to a best of 40.958. That earned him first place in the Street Machine class and third place overall. “It honestly drives 1000x better than a stock C4 Corvette,” he says.
