The final day of racing is upon us here at No Mercy 8. It’s going to be a mad dash to try and beat the weather and the racing is ready to begin.
Scotty Guadagno’s calling card for many years has been his fourth-generation Camaro known as “Jet Blue”, but things have changed. As a class racer, Guadagno was always a tough customer, but now he’s striking fear into the heart of the No Time racing world with his new car known as the “Party Wagon”. This Jerry Bickel built Camaro is already ruffling some feathers and Guadagno is okay with that because his team is all about having fun at the track.
Picking up this new car was actually not in the plans for Guadagno, but things fell into place and he rolled with the hand he was dealt. “I really wasn’t looking for a car, but found this one when a friend had it for sale and we struck a deal on the car. It has gotten to the point where my blue car really doesn’t fit in anywhere anymore so it made sense to try something new. We wanted to do some big tire and Pro Mod racing, so this car just fit that perfectly. We’re going to do local stuff with this car when it comes to Pro Mod, no PDRA or anything like that, it’s all about having fun for us,” Guadagno says.
The Camaro is powered by one a Scotty’s Racing Engines 904 cubic-inch engine and is set up to become a 940 cubic-inch monster with the swap of a crankshaft. Guadagno also plans on using either a two, or three-speed transmission after he starts to feel the car out. The plan is to have the Camaro ready to run multiple combinations depending on the conditions at the track.
The No Time racing came about for Guadagno as a way to get laps on the car, have fun shine getting ready for some serious racing in 2018. “The plan is after the New Year we’re going to start testing hard in January, but not for Radial vs The World in February, we will be preparing for the $101,000 race in March that we’ve already entered. We’re going to spend a few months really testing hard to see what the car wants and the goal is to run at the front of the pack at that race, even win it if things work out,” Guadagno explains.
You will see Guadagno’s Camaro in Pro Mod trim soon doing some testing at Orlando and Bradenton before he begins the process of getting ready for his shot at radial tire glory this March.
