Summit Racing: Craig’s 1973 Chevy K5 Blazer

Blaze Away

Attention to detail is evident both in Craig Artzner’s ’73 K5 Blazer and in his work at Summit Racing. Craig’s full-top K5 Blazer started coming together in 2006. Although the previous owner had already made some nice upgrades, Craig had to make it his own. He added Trick Flow cylinder heads, Summit intake, Summit M2008 carburetor, Summit multi-spark digital ignition, Summit HEI distributor, Howard’s roller cam and lifters, and Hedman headers. He even developed a homemade lift system to remove and re-install the top in his home garage.

Craig applies the same attention to detail, creativity, and automotive knowledge used to build his Blazer to his role at Summit Racing. He creates 360-degree images, videos, and other multimedia to help customers better understand products and make the right buying decisions for their projects.
