Jason Richards’ ’68 Camaro is the perfect example of what the Radial Revolution encourages. A 706ci big-block Chevy gets a heavy load of nitrous for its main power ingredient. The car attempts to hook on a pair of 315/60-15 drag radials. The leaf-spring suspension would hamper most but Richards had it tuned perfectly to help push the car to a best of 4.60 at this past October’s event. His consistency was impressive as he made it to the semifinals in the No Boost class with a 4.640 first round run, followed by a 4.600, and finally a 4.601. He lost to eventual class winner Richie Stine, who posted a 4.54 run in his Chevy-powered Mustang.
