Brody Melton recently made a significant announcement on his Facebook page that took many fans by surprise. He revealed his decision to sell his beloved No Prep Kings Roots Blown Camaro.

For those interested in acquiring a competitive No Prep Kings car, Brody Melton's 2014 Camaro is a tempting proposition. Priced at $135,000, it represents a significant value in the world of professional drag racing. When compared to the cost of building a brand-new No Prep Kings car from scratch, which can easily range from $250,000 to $300,000 for the chassis alone, Brody's asking price seems like a bargain. Additionally, his Camaro comes equipped with a Roots blown 521 cubic inch Brad-based Hemi, a powerhouse engine that can hold its own on the No Prep Kings circuit. With the potential to install a screw blower, this car could become even faster, making it an enticing opportunity for aspiring racers looking to enter the Future Class of No Prep Kings world.
