Following in the footsteps of the Mustang Cobra Jet and Challenger Drag Pak, Chevrolet is reportedly considering a track-only Camaro to terrorize dragstrips across the nation.

The rumors came from Ford, surprisingly enough, in an effort to keep tabs on their rivals. Ford Racing’s drag racing manager Jesse Kershaw let this information slip during an interview, where he was discussing the efforts of others to compete with the Cobra Jet: “Dodge has produced a Challenger to compete with us…We know that General Motors is on track to release a Camaro version.”

If he’s right, then Chevrolet will most likely reveal this car at SEMA in November, just as Ford and Dodge did in previous years. And Kershaw is looking forward to some competition, which will pay off for fans: ”I think that the NHRA fans as well as the racers themselves are very excited to get out there and have this new era of horsepower war.”

    Chevy always comes out on top. The competition just cant compete with this all time Racing name. They win anything they build to race. Always have and always will. Cant keep this great racing champion down very long. That new Camaro will bury them all, cant wait.
