Hershel McGriff returned to race at Le Mans in 1982. After the not so successfull attempt with his son Doug in the Dodge Charger in 1976, Billy Hagan signed on Hershel to drive the Stratagraph 1979 Camaro with Dick Brooks.
That Camaro had already been entered by Hagan and driven by Cale Yarborough, who'd just retired from his active NASCAR career, at Le Mans in 1981. The next year, Hagan entered two cars: the 1979 and a 1982 Camaro that he drove himself with Gene Felton. Hershel remembers the car fine. He had quite a blast trying to outrun his teammate Felton during the Le Mans night. By the way, the crew chief of the two Camaros was the famous Tex Powell!
