The first IROC Camaro was a street car with desire


Propelled by a racing image and the novelty of having a car that seemed to declare, “I rock,” the IROC-Z Camaro supplanted the Z28 as the line’s top dog from 1985–90. The Camaro, however, had become an IROC star long before that.

I searched for video of these 1974–75 IROC Camaros in action, and this is the best I could come up with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3qIM6Jqdp4. On the other hand, there is a lot of video from the first season (Porsche) in 1973–74, and those races are really worth watching. The commentary of legends Keith Jackson and Jackie Stewart really takes me back! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOvFEBkLXbA&list=PLEpOsC5QfSBD-TywSKG1YcvhzPKVhrxLL
