Cameron Adkins and his ’67 Chevy Camaro win the DragChamp February Car of the Month Contest!
For the February Car of the Month contest, we took nominations for the best race car transformation. Nominations included before and after pictures of the car. With hundreds of entires, the DragChamp nation has spoken and Cameron Adkins and his ’67 Chevy Camaro were chosen as DragChamp’s February Car of the Month winner.
Cameron won a $50 Summit Racing Equipment gift card and a DragChamp shirt and decals for winning the Car of the Month contest.
Cameron Adkins has always been around the sport of drag racing thanks to his dad, Greg. As soon as he was old enough, Cameron started racing a Junior Dragster and hasn’t looked back since. In 2011, he won a Junior track championship and then won the Jr. Race of Champions at the Pittsburgh IHRA bracket finals.
In 2013, Cameron made the switch into a big car. At first, he raced his friend, Kyle Freeman’s Camaro in Box and then jumped into his dad’s Nova. A couple years after that Cameron’s mom bought the Camaro as a Christmas present for his dad. Once Cameron drove it, he liked it so much that he eventually purchased it from his dad and started to make performance and cosmetic changes to it.
He has won various local bracket races with it and has been able to win a couple big checks from Norwalk’s 10 Grand Nationals in 2017 and Loose Rocker’s 2018 Liberty Classic and he has gone many rounds in other big money races.
Cameron runs Box and No Box with his Camaro and it runs 6.30s consistently with a best of 6.18 in the eighth mile.
Many people have contributed to where his car is today. In 2019, Damon Racing installed the new cage. The wiring was done by JP Schuster and James Davies. The paint was done by Chris Munici and the rest was done by him along with the help from his Dad, Mike Schiberl, Kyle Freeman, and many more. Without the help from them the car wouldn’t be where it is today.
