Roaring into the New Year with Record-Matching Run, Coast Packing’s ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro Goes 3.67 at 200 Mph
When Coast Packing Company’s ’69 ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro queues up for a run, you best not blink.
During testing at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida on Wednesday, the modified Chevy matched the world record for the quickest centrifugal supercharger-powered door car, with a 3.67 elapsed time at 200.98 mph. This go-round, Pro Stock legend Larry Morgan was behind the wheel, spelling Coast Packing CEO Eric R. “Goose” Gustafson, who previously recorded a 3.755@200 mph at the Atlanta Dragway last April – then the quickest centrifugal supercharged Pro Charger-equipped door car in 1/8th mile drag racing.
As always, Jason Lee of PTP Racing handles the tuning with a Haltech Elite 2500. Improvements on the 2570-pound racecar for the 2019 race season include chassis updates, refinements and weight reduction by Tim Lyons at Lyon Custom Motorsports, with a Noonan Engineering 4.800 bore space 526 cubic-inch Hemi providing the power.
As recapped by Mike Galimi of RacePagesDigital, ”Coast Packing’s R&E Racing team made a big noise last year in NMCA competition with Gustafson behind the wheel. They scored a win during the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals and crushed the door-slammer record for centrifugal supercharged combinations for most of 2018 with a 3.755 at 200 mph run.”
Back in Bradenton, the 2019 season is just getting under way. Stay tuned for what figures to be, in Gustafson’s words, “an awesome year ahead.”
