We are back at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana for another iteration of the Classic Industries Super Chevy Muscle Car Challenge Presented by Falken Tires. It’s going to be a hot one, the hottest day of the summer so far, but that won’t stop our competitors from tearing up the track. This morning has been full of last minute adjustments, checking fluids, and getting pressures just right on their Falken RT615K tires.

The Muscle Car Challenge is a combination of timed events that are sure to test any performance handling hot rod. This year we’ve got the same three events for our competitors which include a 100 yard dash where they will accelerate from a dead stop up through 100 yards to test the cars’ grip off the line. They will also be running through a slalom to test cars’ reflexes, and finally lapping the 1.8 mile CPP Road Course.

Stay tuned as we bring you more coverage from the event today and in future issues of Super Chevy!
