Brian Waszak's 1968 Chevy Chevelle - Wasz Up!

By , Photography by , Scott Kileen

Brian Waszak's the name-"Wasz" to his friends and fans. Who is the guy? At 20, he's the youngest racer to campaign an NMCA EZ Street car. Before you ask, yes-he gets plenty of help from his dad, Paul, who's raced for 20 years and has a Super Gas Vega. But the '68 Chevelle is Brian's car, and he does plenty of wrenching and spending in between full-time school at ITT and a part-time job at Motorola.

With that schedule, we can't figure out how the Waszaks, plus key crew guy Joe Oplawski, manage to hit so many NMCA and NSCA races. Or how they finished sixth and fourth, respectively. Or how they keep the car so clean-and we mean show car clean. Not only could you lick the floorpans, but the 'Velle is EZ Street as EZ Street should be. Stuff like a real bench seat, no nitrous bottle in the interior, and minimal race car gee-gaws make this a streeter to contend with. And just try contending with 9.36 at 144 mph. No bet. Outta here. And, hey, Wasz...see ya next year.
