Here's what he had to say...
NHRA's SAM Tech.edu Factory Stock Showdown class has a significant new player this season.
Ryan Priddy, who spent the last decade overseeing Nick Mitsos' Mountain View Racing Pro Stock team, has transferred to the driver's seat of Mountain View Racing's FS/XX 2019 COPO Camaro.
Delivered in September 2018, this race car made its initial runs last October as an FS/A car, running very deep under that index and resetting the national record. The Camaro was originally a 2018 model but has been converted to 2019 specs with front and rear trim face to take advantage of the new Magnuson supercharger introduced by Chevrolet for this season.
With the new supercharged 350ci engine, Ryan confirmed the Camaro will be 100 percent devoted to the NHRA's Factory Stock Showdown events going forward.
The COPO, which features associate sponsorship from both NAPA Auto Parts and Havoline, was credited with a super-quick 7.934 run during the record-setting first SAMTech.edu Factory Stock Showdown event of the season in Gainesville, Florida.
