Jenkins Heads Winners List at Dragstock IX in ADRL’s Memorable Debut at zMAX Dragway
Shannon “Iceman” Jenkins has been a staple at the American Drag Racing League’s (ADRL) prestigious Dragstock race, first appearing at the event in 2005.
At the ninth rendition of the race on Saturday, Jenkins delivered another trademark performance in Pro Nitrous, this time at the ADRL’s first appearance at zMAX Dragway. “It’s a great feeling to win here and it’s great to see the sport healthy,” Jenkins said. “Racing at a track like this and being fortunate enough to win it is the greatest feeling you can ever have.”
Jenkins’ run on Saturday was one of the many highlights, as the Al-Anabi Racing driver was in classic form in the heart of doorslammer country. In picking up his 11th Pro Nitrous win in 12 final appearances, both ADRL bests, Jenkins got better as the day progressed. It started with taking the No. 1 spot in qualifying with a 3.934 in his 2012 RJ Race Cars Camaro, continued with a 3.893 in the semifinals and concluded in the finals, which was his sixth impressive run on Saturday.
“We’ve got a good hot rod now and it’s going to be good from here on out,” Jenkins said. “We got in that race mode today and I like it that way. We were able to get our rhythm going and we weren’t thinking about anything but going rounds.”

Five Star’s Camaro Body is RED HOT & SETTING RECORDS in 2012!
The recent results really speak for themselves. Teams running Five Star’s 2012 Camaro Drag Body have been winning and setting records:
In early 2012 the Five Star Camaro body was chosen to be the approved Chevrolet body for the NHRA Pro Stock competition by both Chevrolet Racing and NHRA due to its close factory styling and superior aerodynamics. The body was designed by the Five Star design team under the guidance of premier Pro Stock chassis builders Rick Jones from RJ Race Cars, Jerry Haas from Jerry Haas Race Cars and Don Ness who has been involved in Pro Stock body design since 1982. Teams are beginning to race their new cars with this new body and are finding early success, like Greg Anderson’s debut win at the Toyota NHRA Supernationals in Englishtown, NJ earlier this month. The success has prompted other teams upgrade their cars for competition.
Five Star Race Car Bodies’ all new 2012 Camaro Drag Body has done nothing but perform at the top since its debut. And it’s the first choice of top builders such as Rick Jones at RJ Race Cars, Jerry Haas at Jerry Haas Race Cars, Sinister Racing, Wally Stroup at Stroup Race Cars and many others.
Rick Jones from RJ Race Cars stated “I personally recommend and use the Five Star 2012 Camaro Ultra Lite Carbon Body on my son’s Rickie Jones Pro Nitrous car. Five Star’s quality and service is second to none and the performance on the new 2012 Camaro is better than any other body available, which is why I use it on my own personal car!!!”
“Maintaining proper factory identity in bodies is critical in order to retain the respect and dignity of the Pro Stock class. In order to keep this class alive, a single style body per manufacturer is essential,” Jerry Haas from Jerry Haas Race Cars stated. “Nobody can beat the turnaround time, delivery and quality of a Five Star Body. To me, it’s a win-win situation”
“The 2012 Five Star Camaro Body compiles the best of aero efficiency and styling while minimizing overall size! This design maintains adequate clearance for large (Pro-Mod) tires while holding to the Strict Pro-Stock guidelines.” Don Ness
“Due to its great looking factory styling and superior aero package, this is the popular choice of all the top teams. Body sales have been strong for both Pro Mod and Pro Stock styles,” states Carl Schultz, President, Five Star Race Car Bodies. “No other body manufacturer can proclaim the strongest, most durable composite construction while also being the lightest (the complete Ultra-Lite Carbon Body weighs ONLY 53 pounds). We are proud of our ability to provide consistently superior quality and on time deliveries. Additionally, almost all of the top professional race teams use our high optical quality polycarbonate windshields.”
