Tim Nicholson’s ’67 Camaro is a unique Super Gas car in that it features a manually shifted four-speed Lenco transmission. The car is also equipped with a “reverse throttle stop” that limits it to top speeds of around 100 mph while still running the 9.90 index. That approach yielded big results for Nicholson, who defeated Mitch Withers in the Super Gas final round, 9.904 to a 9.856 breakout.
