After visiting I-40 Dragway three times so far this season, I’ve noticed a ton of new paint jobs and several complete rebuilds. It’s normal for a couple of racers to revamp their cars over the winter, but 2012 seems to be the year for the new paint job! And while there are several brand new builds that will be debuting soon, I just figured I’d showcase these racers who have obviously put in some serious hours in the off season.
–Mike Farley campaigned this Camaro in the Pro Street class last year, using a roots-blown big block, but this year it has taken on a whole new look. Now with a reliable all motor big block, the car is set up to run the 6.0 index class, and features a fresh Hugger Orange paint job.
The Preston family from Kentucky has been a regular at the Bounty Race for the past couple of years, and they always have killer machines. This LSX-powered Camaro raced last year with a plain white paint job, but Isaac debuted it with a wild new look.
There’s no doubt that this car has been around a while, but it’s sporting a fresh look for 2012, thanks to a full body wrap, as opposed to its previous red paint job. Heath Littrell continues to run in the 6.0 index class, but gave his Chevy Monza a new look with a vinyl wrap and new Holeshot wheels.
Ricky Millard is a diehard 7.0 index racer and has won his share of events with this third generation Camaro. Over the winter, he sent the car to Justin Dempsey for a new paint job, and the results are awesome. The new color combination and new Weld wheels look great.
One of drastic changes during the winter season was Brad Shultis’ Hemi-powered Plymouth Duster. It went from gray primer to Panther Pink. The Procharged Mopar runs in the Pro Street class at the Bounty Race.
