5th Place
Upon seeing Jeff Schwartz's teal '49 Chevy for the first time, you'd probably think it's nothing more than a beautiful restored classic truck. Nevertheless, you'd be dead wrong, since this wolf-in-sheep's-clothing is packed with Schwartz Performance's cutting-edge G-Machine chassis and a modern LS engine. Jeff's many years of building and racing pro-touring muscle cars was obvious, as he immediately rose to the top of the leaderboard after taking Second Place in the autocross. However, after blowing a power steering hose during his second run, the truck was unable to regain the podium in the following events. Nevertheless, the gorgeous '49 won our show-and-shine contest by a landslide, leaving it with a solid Fifth Place finish.
