Lee Adkins Jr., a former American Drag Racing League (ADRL) national-event winner in both Pro Nitrous and Pro Modified, will return to the all-eighth-mile series this weekend (Sep. 7-8) in the ADRL Memphis Drags III at Memphis International Raceway. This time, however, Adkins will get behind the wheel of a new Garret Race Cars-built 68 Camaro in the Top Sportsman class.
"This is a brand-new car we just finished for Tom Smith in Southhaven, Mississippi, which is basically part of Memphis, so this is a home-town debut for him," said Garret Livingston, founder and president of Garret Race Cars in Marble Hill, Missouri. "We decided to put Lee in the car first because hes a great, experienced driver who will be able to help us get it dialed in quickly for Tom."
The new, light-weight bodied Camaro is motivated by a nitrous-fed Reher & Morrison 665-cubic-inch engine thats backed up by a Powerglide transmission.
"Im really looking forward to getting out there again with this new car," said Adkins, who lives in Linden, Tennessee. "I've driven Garret cars before and theyve always been first-class all the way."
