Darrian Arch Miss Teen USA and her ZL1 Camaro - Photo by Goyk PhotoEarly in May, I received an email from a person named Darrian who was interested in having their 2013 ZL1 Camaro featured on ShockerRacing.com.  I asked for some photos and some more details about the car and what mods had been done to the car.  Darrian sent me some pics of the black fifth generation ZL1 Camaro and explained that it was stock.  I thought to myself, where is the story here? Yes, the ZL1 Camaro is potent in stock form being powered by the supercharged and intercooled 6.2-liter overhead valve LSA V-8 from GM.  It's rocking 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque and will hit 0-60 in 4.2 seconds but you can read about that and see pics in any Road and Track or Motor Trend magazine.  I was then informed that Darrian had a photoshoot scheduled with none other than Goyk Photo and that SHE was a member of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Indy Girls Team!  I began to put the puzzle pieces together and found out that Darrian Arch was also Miss Indiana Teen USA for 2013.

Darrian, 19, is currently a college student majoring in Biology and tells us she has always been a car enthusiast.  Her parents raised her around sports cars and she spent plenty of time at the drag strip.  Her first car was a Blue 2011 C6 Corvette and this was the gateway to her love for speed!  Darrian special ordered this Black 2013 ZL1 Camaro late in 2012 and has kept it stock for the time being.  She has made 5 passes at Byron dragway in the ZL1 and she ran 12.2's and 12.3's. She tells us that she plans on upgrading the Camaro to a Lingenfelter 700hp package in the very near future.  The LPE package increases the power to 623 rear wheel horsepower and 617 pound-feet of torque and includes:
