Bringing the Heat

18 Chevys throw down in triple-digit temps and battle through our gauntlet of tests at the 2017 Classic Industries Super Chevy Muscle Car Challenge presented by Falken Tires

"OK, we confess, nothing gives us more joy than watching classic Chevys getting beat on at the track. Yeah, the roar of engines, the smell of abused brakes, and that unmistakable scent of melted rubber and fried clutch disc is nearly intoxicating. Given our love of objects in motion, we host an annual event where modified classic Chevys get put through a series of tests. Like last year, our event was held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. The 2017 Classic Industries Super Chevy Muscle Car Challenge presented by Falken Tires went off pretty smoothly even though the air temp got above 110 degrees. Even worse, surface temps on the track topped 150 degrees! Yeah, that’s hot and the heat was as hard on drivers as it was on the cars."
