ARH/Farks Supercars’ 10 Camaro Takes Camaro 5 Fest title

Recently, Camaro 5 Fest rolled into Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas for some Camaro fun.
The weekend event of all-things-Camaro is headlined by some of the quickest and fastest Camaro-only drag racing action you’ll find anywhere in this great nation. The on-track action was headlined by the Unlimited class, which gave fans a look at the quickest and fastest fifth Gen Camaros in the country.
It didn’t take long for a clear leader to emerge. Early in qualifying, the 2010 Camaro fielded by Farks Supercars and American Racing Headers, and driven by Louis Filippides took the top spot with a blistering 8.40-second pass at an even more impressive 163 mph trap speed. Filippides would go on to win the event with a string of mid-8.60 passes, capping it all off with an 8.46 at 163 in the final to take the win, laying down the quickest and fastest pass of eliminations in the process.
The late-model Camaro relies on a 430-cube RHS LSX with a F1C ProCharger for power, but components from BMR Suspension help Filippides get all that power hooked up. Harnessing 1,200 horsepower is no small feat. This is evident by the car’s best 60-foot time of 1.22 and a best pass of 8.39 at 163 mph. The Farks/ARH Camaro still utilizes the IRS rear suspension, but it has been upgraded with BMR’s Drag Racing Suspension Package, which consists of lower control arms, trailing arms, toe rods, upper coil-over mounts, and rear brake conversion for 15-inch wheels.
Be sure to keep an eye on the Farks/ARH 2010 Camaro in NMCA LSX Series competition in the Real Street class.
