This is the beautiful ’86 Camaro of Phil Harnden of Spencerport, NY, competing at our home track, Empire Dragway. This photo was taken in September of 2013 by Empire Dragway’s official track photographer, Ron Rigby. Phil’s Camaro is powered by a 380 cid Chevrolet engine, and is coupled to Powerglide transmission with a 1.96 first gear and torque converter from BDR Torque Converters. The car was originally built by Jeff Hoyt Race Cars, but was updated last year by Torrelli Pro Cars.
The car is sponsored by BDR Torque Converters and McGuire Motorsports, though Phil also wanted to thank Chris Cipollone, KTR Racing Engines, DesignArt, Mark Herbold, Opie, Dan the Sign Man, and of course, his wife, Nancy.
