We sound like a bit of a broken record by saying it again, but the 2010-12 Chevrolet Camaro’s are literally coming out of the woodwork these days; perhaps at even quicker pace now than their first-generation counterparts that are a dime a dozen at any Pro Modified or Top Sportsman race. NHRA Pro Stock competitors are also on the verge of adopting the new Camaro to replace their aging Cobalts and GXPs, with the Summit Racing teammates of Greg Anderson and Jason Line and Greg Stanfield all indicating the switch in the very near future.
The ADRL this week published some photos obtained of heavy-hitting NHRA Division 7 sportsman racer Gary Forkner’s brand spanking new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, fresh out of the Jerry Bickel Race Cars shop and with Steve Schmidt power under the hood. Forkner, who hails from Temecula, Calif., is said to be competing in the ADRL’s Top Sportsman class this season.

Another NHRA Top Sportsman competitor, Canyon, Tex. native Greg Lair, also recently took delivery of a brand new 2012 Camaro from the Jerry Haas shop, sporting an eye-catching paint scheme to match it’s menacing body lines. Lair is also slated to compete with the ADRL in the dial-in Top Sportsman category this season. The 2012 ADRL tour kicks off March 30-31 at the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Tex. with the CarSafe Dragpalooza VIII.
