“Project 899” will be built by Big 3 Racing and debut at this year’s LS Fest in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Temecula, CA — Power Automedia, the leader in automotive digital media, is excited to announce a partnership with Summit Racing to build a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro to make 899-rear wheel horsepower and go 8.99 or quicker in its first trip to the track.
The car’s transformation will take place at Big 3 Racing in Hinkley, Ohio. The build will be led by the Big 3 Racing team, with input from Power Automedia’s automotive experts including Jeremy Nichols of LSX Magazine, Brian Wagner of Street Muscle Magazine, Chris Friend of Power + Performance YouTube channel, and Brian Havins, Power Automedia’s Director of Content.
“We are ecstatic about ‘Project 899’ and the opportunity to work with the crew at Big 3 Racing and Summit Racing,” explained Brian Havins. “And while the idea behind this build is straightforward, assembling a car of this magnitude in only nine days is no easy feat. We will need to expect the unexpected to complete this ’69 Camaro in the given timeframe. With that said, I believe our team has the talent and experience to pull it off even with a few surprises along the way.”
The car will be built from the ground up using Summit Racing’s extensive catalog – exhaust, cooling, suspension, drivetrain – you name it. The team will even pay a visit or two to Summit’s nearby Tallmadge, Ohio retail location to pick up any missing parts.
The 9-day build process will be meticulously documented with 30 straight days of content. It will be showcased on Power Automedia’s Power + Performance YouTube channel, LSX Magazine, Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.
Upon completion, the Camaro will be dyno tested at Big 3 Racing and debut at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, during LS Fest taking place September 8th-10th, 2023.
