Competing in the popular SCCA racing series are first-year drivers Andy Lee, Harry Curtin, an Todd Napieralski, who all are enjoying highly impressive seasons.

The trio, all certified graduates from the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, campaign their Camaros within the SCCA's World Challenge GTS class category. The GTS class features cars that must use the stock body panels, but the rule book does allow for rear wing configurations. In the class, suspension and engine modifications can be extensive and the Camaros use LS3 motor programs.
