Media Blasting: Camaro Engineering
Posted Apr 24, 2014

With all the excitement this week about the new Performance Car Lineup from Chevrolet, here’s a great video of the all-new Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 by Chevrolet Engineer Mark Stielow.  The Z/28 has so much power, such stellar brakes, and so much grip that the tires were actually rotating on the rim a full 360 degrees!

With the recent introduction of the all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 and Chevrolet's expanded performance car lineup, we thought it might be good to take things retro for this week's wallpaper and look back to how this groundbreaking Corvette appeared back in 1963.

Recap: NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMax Dragway Charlotte
Posted Apr 17, 2014

It was a beautiful Spring weekend in Charlotte, N.C., as the zMAX Dragway played host to the hugely popular NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, Friday-Sunday, April 11-13th. With the NHRA only running “four-wide” one time during each season, to win at zMAX in the spring race has become one of the most sought-after trophies of the year. 

Wallpaper Wednesday: Erica Enders Stevens' Pro Stock Camaro
Posted Apr 16, 2014

In case you missed it, the NHRA zMax 4 Wide Nationals were this past weekend, and The BLOCK team was lucky enough to spend the weekend hanging out with Pro Stock Camaro driver Erica Enders Stevens. Now, if the name didn't give it away, the race is "4 wide" because there are actually four lanes at the zMax Dragway, meaning you get twice the horsepower action per 1/4-mile pass. Instead of explaining to you just how awesome that is, we thought we'd show you with today's edition of Wallpaper Wednesday. Click below to download!
