Edelbrock Goes to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
With 20 Teams of Local High Schools Participating in the Carburetor Challenge
On August 13-15 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Edelbrock will be showcasing a collection of vehicles dedicated to over 72 years of American Performance. An “Evolution of Power” starts with Vic Edelbrock Sr.’s original 1932 Ford Roadster, the TLC show Rides ‘32 Roadster, the Hot Rod Magazine 1967 Chevy Camaro and the line of Edelbrock E-Force Supercharged vehicles. This timeless dedication to improving automotive performance will be showcased in the Power Alley in the Yamaha Marketplace.
Edelbrock is also proud to welcome 20 teams of local high school auto shop students to participate in the Edelbrock Carburetor Challenge hosted by Ohio Technical College. The competition will include a written test, disassembly, assembly and tech inspection. Winners and top scoring teams will receive scholarships to Ohio Technical College.
The Edelbrock cars at the event include the original Vic Edelbrock Sr. 1932 Ford Roadster used to develop performance intake manifolds and cylinder heads for his Ford flathead engine. It is the car that helped launch the Edelbrock Company in 1938.
The 1932 Ford roadster built by Roy Brizio for The Learning Channel show Rides features an Edelbrock Chevy crate engine and suspension components. It will be displayed next to the 1963 split window Chevy Z06 Corvette raced by Bob Bondurant in 1962 thru 1964. This is one of the first Z06 models built especially for racing which featured a fuel-injected 327 V8 engine.
The 1966 Junior Johnson Ford Galaxie is also known as the Banana Car because of its unique re-styling done by Junior to get an edge at Stock Car races. This car was allowed to race only once in the day and will be back on track again.
The 1969 Bud Moore Trans Am Boss 302 Mustang will be racing and is one of only two surviving Boss 302 Trans-Am Mustangs. Originally driven by George Follmer in 1969, it featured Ford’s Boss 302 small-block V8 engine.
Also in the Power Alley will be famed roadster builder Roy Brizio with some of his cars on display and Dave Schaub’s “49-in-9″ ‘32 Ford. This roadster covered 9,856 miles and 49 states in nine days with all proceeds donated to charity.
Continuing their passion for performance, Vic and Christi Edelbrock will be competing on the track in the Trans-Am and GT sports racing groups and will be signing autographs throughout the weekend.
