The day started out rough for James Faria when a missing starter bolt almost took him out of the competition. Luckily, he was able to catch a ride into town and found a suitable replacement. He bought his '69 as a present to himself when he was getting out of the Air Force and, since then, has been steadily improving the Camaro. Right now the ride sports a 496 big-block Viper T-56 trans, DSE suspension, and Baer brakes on all four corners. Faria finished in the Top 10 overall with a 2:03.93 road course, 45.946 autocross, and 14.681 in the Speed-Stop Challenge.
