Corvette Racers
Throughout the 1960s, Arkus-Duntov continued to support Corvette owners who wanted to race, supplying them with optional heavy-duty brakes and larger fuel tanks, as well as the L88 big-block engine program. Successful Corvette drivers in the late 1960s into the 1970s included John Greenwood, Tony DeLorenzo, Jerry Thompson and Bob Johnson, including GT Class wins at Sebring in 1968, 1970, 1971 and 1972.
