Dave Drewitt and Wayne Huber campaign one of Eastern Canada's fastest Super Stock cars. The SS/AS classed 1989 Chevrolet Camaro, which was prepared at Smith Performance Specialties, features a 394 CID small block Chevrolet engine. That motor, which was also assembled by Smith Performance Specialties features Buick cylinder heads, a Lunati camshaft and Hooker Headers. A powerglide 196 automatic transmission built by Competition Transmissions delivers power to a Ford 9" rear end equipped with 5:86 gears.
Driver and team owner Dave Drewitt is a golf pro and instructor at Willow Valley Golf Course in Mt. Hope, Ontario. Drewitt has been a PGA Professional since 1974. Racing partner Wayne Huber (Lambeth, ON) has a colourful drag racing background that includes Jack Hyde's "The Green Stock" and Barry Poole & Sandy Elliott's Ford Mustang racing fame.
Dave Drewitt began his drag racing career in 1965 driving a 1966 Chevy equipped with a big block 427. That car, which ran as an A/Stocker, was in fact one of Canada's very first muscle cars. In 1992 he acquired his current 1989 Camaro from Canadian Rick Giles and ran that until 1998. During the 1999-2000 seasons Dave Drewitt drove FJ Smith's revolutionary Chevy S-10 Super Stock truck SS/TB. Drewitt's best finish ever in NHRA national event competition came while driving that truck -- he was runner-up in Super Stock eliminator at the NHRA Keystone Nationals near Reading PA. During the year 2000, Drewitt took Smith's truck to a third place finish in final UAP/Napa/Dana/Smith Performance Stock/Super Stock series points.
With continued support from backers Smith Performance Specialties, Dave Drewitt and Wayne Huber will run their Chevy Camaro at select IHRA and NHRA national event races.
