The NHRA Tech Department has approved a body design for the ’12 Camaro SS for use in NHRA competition. The new Camaro bodies were developed and will be constructed by Five Star Race Car Bodies, and they are tentatively scheduled to make their debut at the Tire Kingdom NHRA Gatornationals March 8-11.
The approval of the Camaro was the final step in the process of making the new body legal for NHRA competition. According to NHRA Tech Director Bob Blackwell, ”NHRA has an established set of standards regarding the minimum width, height, and other critical dimensions for all Pro Stock bodies, and the final version still has to retain the essential body lines and design features of the Camaro. All of these steps have been completed, and the various Pro Stock chassis builders are now taking orders from a number of the General Motors teams.”
