First: The BLOCK's Brenda Grubbs Reports On What it Was Like to Drive 2014 COPO #007 in Competition
Posted Jul 22, 2014

Continuing with the next installment in her racing season chronicles, this week, regular contributor Brenda Grubbs brings us the story of what it was like to be the very first member of the media to drive a 2014 COPO Camaro – and not just for some ol' test run – but for heads-up competition at the NHRA Southern Nationals in Atlanta.

Eight Short Weeks - Borla Performance’s 1966 Corvette - The BLOCK Feature Car
Posted Jul 21, 2014

What have you accomplished in the past eight weeks? Maybe you’ve checked off some projects that you’d been procrastinating on? Perhaps you got a promotion at work? That’s a big deal. Well, the boys from Borla Performance have definitely earned a promotion at work with today’s feature car project. These guys have been burning the midnight oil in preparation for this year’s HOT ROD Power Tour (HRPT) presented by Chevrolet Performance, and from the looks of this 1966 Corvette, it was well worth it.

Stingray Chevrolet Part 2: Florida Dealership Puts An Emphasis On Performance
Posted Jul 17, 2014

Picking up where we left off on Monday in Part 1, Part 2 of our interview with Steve Hurley, proprietor of performance-geared Central Florida dealership, Stingray Chevrolet, focuses on his approach to running a dealership and, of course, his passion for Chevrolet Performance parts.

The BLOCK Salutes, and Speaks with “The King” of the Kings Royal from Eldora Speedway
Posted Jul 14, 2014

This past weekend marked the 31st annual running of the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. The BLOCK had the chance to attend this historic race, as the World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series made their yearly trip to Rossburg, Ohio for the $50,000-to-win show, and as always, the crowd followed suit. 

Stingray Chevrolet Part 1: Florida Chevrolet Dealership Puts An Emphasis On Performance
Posted Jul 14, 2014

Steve Hurley is no stranger to performance. As a lifelong drag racing fan and the proud father of a seasoned gearhead, his son Matt, horsepower and performance are simply in the family bloodline. And, that’s precisely why it makes sense that his dealership maintains an emphasis on performance vehicles -- so much so that it drew its name, Stingray Chevrolet -- from one of the most distinguished and iconic performance monikers in automotive history, the Corvette Stingray.

Posted Jul 09, 2014

If you're going to have any Pro Stock driver for your computer's wallpaper, why not have the NHRA Pro Stock points leader Erica Enders?

The Camaro is Back in Funny Car Racing
Posted Jul 08, 2014

Replacing the Firebird, Monte Carlo and Impala body styles, the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will be the new body of choice for Chevy racers running in the NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car (TA/FC) class.  This will better align the Camaro as the car of Chevrolet drag racing as they are already prominently represented in NHRA Pro Stock competition, leading the points standings we might add.

Not for Sale: The 30th Chevrolet Mike Has Owned - The BLOCK Feature Car
Posted Jul 07, 2014

Mike Simpson approached our photographer, Lucas, at the 2014 HOT ROD Power Tour because he’s been seeing his work with The BLOCK. All he was asking for was one photo, what he got was a full photo shoot and our badge of honor sticker as a Feature Car on The BLOCK.

Frank Hawley
Posted Jul 01, 2014

Rathyna Gomer is no stranger to driving some seriously powerful – seriously fast cars. As a matter of fact, she's a veteran of the Southern California drifting scene, and with that experience, we recently nominated her to drive on behalf of TheBLOCK.com for a "Media Challenge" at Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California. How ironic that we threw her a curveball by asking her to drive in a straight line, eh? That's okay, though – because with her skills, we knew Rathyna was up to the task!

COPO Wins in Bristol
Posted Jun 30, 2014

We would like to wish hearty congratulations to the Gray Motorsports Team and Stock Eliminator Driver, Jeff Strickland, who powered the Gray Motorsports GMPartsNow.com COPO Camaro to victory in the NHRA Lucas Oil Division 2 event at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, Tennessee. Though Jeff is an accomplished racer on many levels, this was his first trophy while piloting the team's GMPartsNow.com COPO Camaro.

Ed's '55 Bel Air Feature Car
Posted Jun 30, 2014

The year is 1955, and Chevrolet has just released the first iteration of their legendary small block engine. In addition to the legacy this power plant would develop over time, worthy of an article of its very own, Chevrolet has placed the destined-to-be-iconic motor into the first year of what will go on to become the immensely popular “Tri-Five” series of cars.
