Texas is RideTech territory, and Goodguys’ 26th Summit Racing Lone Star Nationals was no exception. Scot Rods Garage took over the RideTech display to convert their Chevelle from a StreetGRIP suspension system to a Coilover suspension system. They raced the car before and after the swap and shaved 2 secods off their best times.
In the autocross the 70-car field, was refined into a 16 car shootout by Saturday afternoon with the RideTech Track 1 Camaro, driven by Chris Smith, qualifying 7th and the Gen-1 48 Hour Camaro, driven by Bret Voelkel, qualifying 9th. Bret was knocked out first round by eventual winner Jared Leisinger, while Chris survived until the second round losing to eventual runner up Josh Leisinger.
Ridetech president Bret Voelkel commented: “We LOVE coming to Texas…its hard to find a more enthusiastic group of hot rodders! The Track 1 Camaro continues to respond positively to our tweaks and refinements. The original 48 Hour Camaro continues to deliver top level competitive performance 8 years after its initial build. Both cars are using our Instinct Electronic Shock package and we continue to refine the calibrations on that system. I think the most fun for us is helping customers improve their cars. We had 6 cars in the 16 car Shootout and probably another 25 in the rest of the field. They continue to improve every event. THAT is why we love coming to Texas! “
The season is finishing on a strong note with events in Lexington, KY, the SEMA show AAPEX and Goodguys’ big finale in Scottsdale, AZ. For more information on Goodguys events, click HERE
