A Night of Drag Racing

A couple of my husband’s friends wanted to have a drag race to see whose car was faster. A local track, Kansas City International Raceway, has a night where anyone can bring their cars out to race. After a few reschedules, a grudge match was finally on.

The first car:

A red 1967 RS
Camaro convertible with a Muncie 4-speed transmission and 327 small block built by D. It was dyno tested at 400hp.


The second car:

A red 2000 TransAm WS6 with a 4-speed automatic transmission and a factory stock 5.7L V8 OHV 16V FI Engine rated at
