The question "why race a Chevette?" has come up on numerous occasions in my 11 year career. My answer... "because it's a challenge!"
Unlike many other divisions, you CAN'T order parts out of a cataloge, you CAN'T buy setup and engine building guides, the high school kid behind the parts counter hasnt ever seen a Chevette, and thinks you said Corvette...but you CAN be your own engineer and design the Chevette the way you think it should be. If it's slow, you know not to try that part again, if its fast, you try to find ways to make it faster. It's a never ending process. As technology advances, we find more and more ways to improve old, outdated, proceedures of engine and chassis building. Like i said, this makes 11 years ive been in Chevette racing, and i still learn something new every season. I've learned how important it is to pay attention to the details. "Every little bit adds up" is what i was taught at an early age, and i like to say from experience... it sure does!
