Cameron Lawrence Racing Trans-Am Road Atlanta 2014
Cameron Lawrence driving the #1 Miller Racing Camaro in Trans-Am TA2 at Road
Atlanta 2014. Started 3rd and worked my way to the lead before being taken
out in Turn 10 which lead to a bent wheel and flat tire. After going a lap
down in the pits I worked my way past the leaders and back on the lead lap
to a 7th place finish. I was able to keep my points lead and set a track
record in the process. The car that hit me was penalized half of his points
for the avoidable contact.

Bill Bagshaw's NHRA Pro Stock "Red Light Bandit" 1970 Hemi Challenger
This 1970 Hemi Challenger was owned and raced by Bill Bagshaw in NHRA Pro
Stock drag racing from 1970 to 1973. The car made its debut in 1970 at the
NHRA U.S. Nationals, and won "Best Engineered" at the event. It was
featured in the November 1970 issue of Hot Rod magazine. John Gastman of
Roanoke Motors Chrysler/Dodge in Roanoke, IL owns the Red Light Bandit. He
purchased it from a private owner as part of a package deal back in 1994.
In January, 2011, Gastman called on Bucky Hess, and his son Travis Hess, at
Bucky's Ltd in Martinsburg, WV to restore this historic race car. Bill
Bagshaw, the original owner and racer, provided an enormous amount of
information to Gastman and Bucky during the restoration of the Challenger.
Bagshaw became part of the restoration team when he agreed to rebuild the
Red Light Bandit's 426 Hemi motor at Ron Shaver's Racing Engines in
Torrance, CA. Using pictures from magazine articles and build pics, Bucky's
fabricator, Cole McAllister, expertly returned the body to 1970 condition.
The talented artist Nelson Grimes re-created the lettering to "as raced"
appearance, using both gold leaf and white gold leaf materials. The final
product is stunning.
