This 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Bracket car is for sale in our Louisville Kentucky Showroom. Bracket racing is a form of drag racing that allows for a handicap between predicted elapsed time of the two cars over a standard distance of drag racing. This Camaro has been set-up specifically for the 1/8 mile drag strips in the local area. The effect of the bracket racing rules is to place a premium on consistency of performance of the driver and car rather than on raw speed, which in turn makes victory much less dependent on large infusions of money, and more dependent on mechanical and driving skill, such as reaction times, shifting abilities, and ability to control the car. Therefore, bracket racing is popular with casual weekend racers. Some will even drive their vehicles to the track, race them, and then simply drive them home. While this Camaro could be driven on the street, it is not recommended. However if you are looking to get into a nice clean ready to run bracket car, that is both reliable and competitive, then this car is a great start! The engine is a 400 V8 with machine work performed by Kenny Grimes Racing & Performance. The same goes for the transmission. It is a Powerglide Trans and converter with a deep pan that has been built by Kenny Grimes Racing & Performance. The rear end is a GM 12 bolt that has been narrowed and filled with 5.57 gears! The drive train has less than 100 1/8 mile passes on it, so it is still very fresh and ready to go. Inside, you will find that this Camaro is all business. You will notice an 8 point racing cage from Jegs. The cage is needed because this bracket car will consistently run between 6.20 to 6.25 seconds, depending upon the track and conditions. A Painless Wiring toggle switch panel takes care of anything that is electrically powered. Weight savings consist of fiberglass front end with a fiberglass lift off hood. Actually the whole fiberglass can be removed for easy access to work on the engine when necessary. Not only is this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Bracket car fast, but it looks good doing it. This 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Bracket car includes; One Racing Seat with padded cover, 5 point Jegs Racing harness (Seat belts) and Aluminum Alloy wheels with racing tires. This 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Bracket car can be seen, including an HD video, at, call at 812-294-1555 or email for more information.
