CENTER MORICHES, N.Y. --

As the ADRL season opener quickly descends upon the drag racing world, 2010 Extreme Pro Stock World Champ, John Montecalvo, is already working toward another Championship run. His new 2012 Camaro has been broken in with a Florida test session, and although the session produced promising results, Montecalvo plans to come out swinging and is fitting in one more session at Dallas before the CarSafe Dragpalooza in Houston.

"I'm really pleased with our new Camaro," told Monte. "RJ Race Cars always builds a great ride and this car is certainly no exception. And thanks to Lois Anne's work with Eddie Hollon on the design, we've already received many compliments on the car's appearance before we've made it to the first event. We can't wait to see the fans' reactions at Houston.

"Tuesday and Wednesday we'll get one more test session in before the season begins. We've decided to test at Dallas for several reasons. It's convenient since it's on the way to Houston. Plus, the weather is very similar to Houston, so hopefully we can find a good race setup. Dallas is also one of our stops on the tour, and it's always good to gather more info for tracks where we compete."

The new car is not the only change in Montecalvo's operation as he's also quickly adjusting to a new shop, based in Georgia, and new crew members. "Even with just one time out of the trailer, this crew is already meshing. Justin and Wayne have blended well with the returning crew. It?s like they've been together forever. Fans see all the action happen on the track, but ninety percent of our battle is won or lost at the trailer. Having a crew that works well together is essential. I'm thrilled that our team is accomplishing that in such a short amount of time.

"We are extremely excited about this season and debuting our awesome looking new Camaro. Now if it runs as good as it looks and I am confident that it will we'll be in good shape this year."
