Doorslammer drag racing superstar Steve Jackson and longtime racing partner and NHRA nitro crew chief Phil Shuler revealed to the world last week their brand new ‘Shadow 2.0’ Camaro that they’ll carry into battle in Radial vs The World at the upcoming Lights Out 8 in South Georgia. The duo, who left the South Georgia Motorsports Park last fall with their pride-and-joy Ford Mustang in a twisted and burned pile of steel after a wild top end incident, were thrust into a race against the clock during the offseason to acquire and prepare a new machine from the ground-up in order to make the season-opening event.

Jackson’s and Shuler’s fortunes took a positive turn when a deal was worked out with a team affiliated with Elite Motorsports that had a Pro Modified Camaro partially completed at Rick Jones Race Cars in Illinois to take over ownership of the chassis, thus making it possible for them to go racing by February.

Finished in a matte silver scheme similar to the look featured on the Mustang in years prior, the new Shadow is a certifiable game-changer in radial tire racing — a purpose-built, lightweight, Pro Modified car from nose to tail with all the makings of a 3.4-second Pro Extreme car.

Is this the first 3.6-second radial car? We wouldn’t bet against it, that’s for sure.
