To honor John Lingenfelter and all of the company’s valued customers, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering hosted a memorial track day at Muncie Dragway where all Lingenfelter customers were treated to a free day at the drag strip. While we’re sure all of them had a ton of fun (we’re a bit jealous we didn’t get to attend), the highlight of the event had to have been Lingenfelter’s 2010 LS9 Chevy Camaro breaking into the 9 second mark.

Now obviously since this is Lingenfelter’s own demo vehicle, it’s been overhauled inside and out. It has been built with JE Pistons and stock GM LS9 crankshaft and titanium rods. Lingenfelter’s own CNC ported LS9 cylinder heads, camshaft, intercooler assembly and more helped take the supercharged Camaro to new heights.

The details on the passes as mentioned by Tim at Lingenfelter were 88 degrees Fahrenheit and around 75% humidity. In other words, not the best or ideal situations to go taking the car down the quarter mile, but not the worst either. Their quickest pass of the day was a 9.974 at 141.64 mph and backed it up with two additional 9 second passes.

So now it’s clear that more and more of today’s vehicles are very capable of hitting 9′s down the quarter mile while maintaining a great possibility in staying a reliable daily driver.

Make sure to check out the video after the break!
