#FastFriday: How Competitive Will a Stock Camaro ZL1 1LE Be?

David Kramar is bringing a completely stock Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE to our Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge. Claiming sub-2-minute lap times, will the ZL1 1LE prove that a winning formula can be bought straight from the factory? 

Held during the HyperFest weekend, the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge is our annual no-holds-barred track competition. The rules are simple: Car and driver must pass a NASA safety inspection. Period.

Speaking of winning formulas, see what some of our third round of invitees are bringing to the fight:

Jeremy Boysen acknowledges that his 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 may not be the fastest, but with his only sponsor being "me and hard work," he knows the limits of his car—and how to push them. Will the hopped-up Cayman GT4 have just the right modifications to win?

On the opposite end of the spectrum from David Kramar's ZL1 1LE is David Pintaric's fully built, Trans Am-spec Cadillac CTS-V. Sure, 850 horsepower in a 2800-pound, full-tube-frame race car can do well in Trans Am, but will that prowess translate to Ultimate Track Car Challenge success?

Check out the rest of the accepted entries, and let us know if you think you have what it takes to win.

The Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge is presented by Tire Rack in association with Wilwood Disc Brakes and XClutch, with trophies from BimmerworldFalken TireHoosier TireSPA Technique, and Aeromotive.
