As the story reads, Montecalvo was unable to attend a test session on Monday in Atlanta. Well, he got a pretty good replacement to test his 2012 RJ Race Cars Camaro, as Warren Johnson stepped in to provide some assistance.
Just reading about it was pretty amazing and the story said Johnson went 4.11 to 4.12 at about 175 mph on the test passes.
Here’s what both Johnson and Montecalvo had to say:
â€œThese mountain-motor cars are absolutely the easiest and smoothest cars to drive,â€ he stated. â€œWith the vast amount of power and torque that they have, combined with the Lenco transmission, you barely feel the gear changes in them. Itâ€™s just one, long, smooth application of power.
â€œI gave them some feedback and suggestions on what I would do, but theyâ€™re the ones who run that car all the time so whether itâ€™s helpful or not to them, I canâ€™t say. If they apply some of it I guess weâ€™ll find out at the next race theyâ€™re at,â€ Johnson said.
Montecalvo said thatâ€™s not even in question.
â€œThey said Warren was smiling, so he had fun, obviously. But he also gave us some good pointers on some things that weâ€™re going to take his advice on. I mean, the guyâ€™s probably forgotten more than weâ€™ll ever learn; so why wouldnâ€™t we?
â€œSeriously, could you have anyone better than Warren Johnson drive your car? I donâ€™t think so.â€
