Sunday at the Finals in Pomona will be the last race for the factory supported Pro Stock GTOs. The new P/S G6 is scheduled to debut at the 2008 Winternationals. The little GTO hit the ground running when Greg Anderson qualified #1 at its first race, Denver 2005. A P/S GTO has entered 56 races total and his won half - an amazing 28 races going into the Finals this weekend. Greg won the 2005 Championship and Jason Line the 2006 title. Tomorrow Greg has a chance to win the GTO's third and last title along with its 29th race. It's been an amazing run and I'll be sorry to see the car leave.

Good luck, Greg! Win that title!

Big D, you are correct. They'll probably be a number of privateer/non-factory supported GTOs out there. Plus, they'll be many running in the sportsman classes. Still kinda sad to see the little GTO being replaced. It's been a great car for the P/S guys... well... unless maybe not to the Mopar P/S guys. :D

+1. It's been great to watch the GTO win in P/S over the past few years. Hate to see it end.

Is there a rendering or a photo of the new G6 Pro Stock? Just curious how they will look.
No pics so far. There is one under construction at Don Ness Racecraft in MN. Not sure how far along they are or who it will be for. Testing begins in 8 weeks so something has to break between then and now.

I understand that some may be at odds with GM's decision to go with the G6 and continue to use the Colbalt to boot. It's all about the Corp and what they feel will help bring in the money.

Yes I would love to have seen another GTO championship, but good on Jeg FTW.
