Brian Weddle’s main love is racing in itself. After a few years of long hard work, his latest project is now complete. The immaculate first generation Chevrolet is packed full of horsepower and destined to be a hitter in any class that he chooses to enter.
Brian kept to his guns, literally, and stuffed an 870 cubic inch, Gene Fulton prepped monster between the frame rails for horsepower. Oh, not to mention, it’s packing four huge systems of nitrous oxide. Weddle and his father, Jeff, decided on a three-speed Lenco transmission and a custom Pro Torque converter from Joe Rivera to cap off the driveline. Vanishing Point Race Cars was called upon to provide the chassis updates where all of that Fulton horsepower can be planted to the ground efficiently with a custom 4-link setup and Santhuff shocks on all four corners.
Richard Sexton and Chuck Ulsch, two of the biggest and most known names in Outlaw 10.5 history, are going to be behind the laptop tuning this beautiful piece of machinery for the Weddle family. Sexton and Ulsch have multiple championships between the two, amongst numerous event wins and years of experience in this game.
Mickey Thompson Performance Tires and Wheels stepped up to help the graphic designer with their custom wheels for drag racing purposes and a set of “sticky mickeys” for all four corners. Brent Beachley and Skip Barnhouse laid down the incredible fire engine red paint scheme on the Camaro which is destined for Outlaw 10.5 competition, mainly in the northeast region, including Cecil County Dragway’s Outlaw Street Car Shootouts.
Billy Leckliter from Chrome Finishes, Inc. provided the stellar front bumper to cap off the muscle car look. Brian wanted to give a huge thank you to his father, Jeff Weddle, because without him this project would have never happened. Also, Brian and Jeff want to thank Gil Mobley, Chuck Ulsch, Richard Sexton, Bruce Wolford, Skip’s Auto Repair, 187 Graphix, Pro Torque and Mickey Thompson as they all helped the family to get this gorgeous piece of machinery to race-ready condition.
Brian is going into the 2015 season planning mostly to hit Outlaw 10.5 races and is planning to slap on a set of Mickey Thompson 315 Drag Radials and coming after the best-of-the-best in the world of radial at the Outlaw Street Car Reunion II, featuring: Battle of the States in Memphis, TN in March.
One thing’s for sure – this first generation Camaro will raise some eyebrows and if you get too close, may burn those same eyebrows off with the massive candles soon to be igniting in the pipes!
