Battle for The Fastest Street Camaro in America. Ryan Martin VS Tom Bailey Grudge Race

The Chevrolet Camaro has been a popular muscle car since its introduction in the late 1960s. Over the years, many car enthusiasts have modified their Camaros for increased speed and performance. But who has the fastest street Camaro in America? Let's take a closer look.

In a recent YouTube video, a Camaro Pro Mod owned by Tom Bailey was crowned the owner of the fastest street-legal car in America. His "Your Mom" Camaro, a 1969 model travels across the country to challenge Ryan Martin's 2016 Camaro for the title of the fastest street driven Camaro in America.

For those unfamiliar with the name, Tom Bailey is a veteran competitor (and champion) of several drag-and-drive events. Not only does he own and drive the fastest street-legal car in America, he also manages Sick Week, a drag-and-drive event with a long waiting list, and publishes Sick the Magazine and a series of successful videos on YouTube.

Ryan Martin, who is the threepeat champion of the No Prep Kings series, is under hood of 504 cubic inch Proline motor, 98mm Twin Turbos, a factory wheelbase, meaning a full-fledged race car. On the other land, Tom Bailey and his street driven Pro Mod with 165 cubic inch of Steve Morris motor and 2 Twin 88m Turbos. The battle for title of the Fastest Street Camaro in America is going to be on fire!

Tom's Camaro is capable of running the quarter-mile in just 6.3 seconds at a speed of 249 miles per hour. To put that into perspective, a stock Camaro SS can run the quarter-mile in the mid-12-second range at around 115 miles per hour.

Of course, building a car like this is no easy feat. It takes a lot of time, money, and expertise to modify a Camaro to this level of performance. But for those who are willing to put in the work, the results can be truly impressive.

It's worth noting that there are likely other Camaro owners out there who have built similarly fast cars. But for now, Tom's Camaro can rightfully claim the title of the fastest street Camaro in America.

While building a car like this may not be practical or affordable for most people, it's still impressive to see what can be achieved with a little bit of ingenuity and a lot of dedication. And for those who are interested in drag racing, watching videos like this can be a thrilling experience.

Down in below video, you can see Tom Bailey's 1969 Camaro is a true testament to the potential of the Chevy Camaro. With its incredible 2,500 horsepower and lightning-fast quarter-mile times, it's easy to see why it's considered the fastest street Camaro in America. And who knows? Maybe Ryan Martin's Camaro is waiting to claim that title for itself.

There are several errors in the text: Tom Bailey's car already did the 1/4 mile in 5.7s. It's the quickest street legal CAR in the world (not just the quickest Camaro) and the name of the car is "Sick Seconds 2".
