In addition to the day of filming it was also time to get Phil Baglieri some seat time in the BG Oil Chevelle that he'll be driving at selected races for team Dalcorp. His first big outing will be at the Barona Drag Strip in North County San Diego where the 4th Annual BG Oil Manufacturer's Cup will be held on June 25-27th. Phil's been down the track a handful of times in the Chevelle and is already starting to put down some great numbers. There isn't any doubt that he'll be ready for competition by the end of June. For more info on The BG Oil MFC event go to: http://www.dragcorner.com/. It will be THE event of the summer.
Also slipping behind the wheel of the SS was Tom Calnon, long time friend of the family and who also did some drag racing back in the day. After making an easy check out run he put down a nice number on his second run and also provided some great GoPro footage for the demo reel. It was great having Tom out with the team and we really appreciated all of his help in the pits. He's no "arrive and drive" kinda' guy. Thanks Tom.

Check out this suction mount that comes with
the camera. Once it's locked down it's on for good!
