It’s not every day you get to compete against a NASCAR Cup car, so imagine how excited many of us were to see a Hendrick Performance-built NASCAR Cup Series Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 enter to compete in the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge Presented by Grassroots Motorsports last year.

Unfortunately, the Cup car wrecked early in the event–blame debris on the front straight cutting down the right-rear tire–and was unable to finish.

Now that it’s 2022 and the entire front end of the Cup car has been rebuilt, driver Patrick Kite is hoping for redemption and the chance to show off the car’s true capabilities on track–capabilities like an LSX V8 good for 680 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque.

What is the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge? It’s our annual no-holds-barred track competition. The only rule is that car and driver must pass a NASA safety inspection.

View this car, along with the rest of the field, on the UTCC website. If you think your car has what it takes to win, enter it here.

The 2022 UTCC returns to Virginia International Raceway May 13-14 in the center of NASA’s HyperFest weekend.

The Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge is presented by Grassroots Motorsports in association with Wilwood EngineeringCRC IndustriesDeatschWerksHP TunersSPA Technique and Volkswagen, with trophies from BimmerWorldXS Power BatteriesSensor ConnectionTrack Advantage and Stifflers.
