Joe Chamberlain's crew, along with the tire sponsor Firestone, perform a pit stop. Sears Point Trans Am, September 21, 1969.

The history of the Lennox / Arrow Heating Camaro begins before the Z/28 rolled off the Chevrolet assembly line in Los Angeles. In 1967 and 1968, Joe Chamberlain campaigned a 1965 Mustang in SCCA A/S and T/A races. Joe was competitive, and even won races in the Mustang. However, Joe knew that, for the 1969 season, he needed to change cars to remain competitive. Joe purchased a new 1969 Z/28 Camaro with Chevrolet’s “hugger orange” paint.

Early in 1969, Joe raced the Camaro in SCCA regional and national events in the A/S class. The Trans Am debut of the Camaro was at the Kent 300, at Seattle International Raceway, on September 7, 1969. Joe finished 11th, and won $200 in prize money. See complete History (4.6mb PDF).
