Mark Nielsen’s new Pro Modified may not be ready for the PMRA opener in May, but
when it’s finished, the car will be a top contender.
“We’re getting there,” said Nielsen,
who will drive the new 1968 Chevrolet Camaro-bodied car. “We should be ready for
the second race at Cayuga (Toronto Motorsports Park).”
Nielsen said he is looking forward to the new car. G-Force
Race Cars in western New York was commissioned to build the car, which is
sporting a Cynergy Composites body from Pro Modified ace Murray Anderson and
Scott Jahren paint.
The new car is based on a 1968 Camaro, but as a Yenko
edition. These were semi-custom GM cars built by Don Yenko and the cars were
some of the fastest and most famous muscle cars of the 1960s.
