Last year's winner and Super Chevy staffer Steven Rupp and his Bad Penny '68 Camaro came out to defend his title. The former cover car is powered by a stroked LS2 that puts out 480hp to the wheels. It uses C6 Corvette stuff up front and a 3-link with a Watt's linkage in the back. Steve had just recently upgraded to a set of Baer 6P brakes and Hoosier A6 tires in hopes to improve over last year. Unfortunately, Steve lost his power steering pump during the autocross, which slowed him down considerably and put him in fourth place overall.
