Be one of 15 lucky people to take a victory lap in the very Corvette that Briggs Cunningham took to Le Mans in 1960, which won its class for the first time in history. During the 16th Anniversary Event September 2-4 at the National Corvette Museum, Lance Miller will be allowing a limited number of enthusiasts the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take the passenger seat for a victory lap around the National Corvette Museum in this historic race car.
For a donation of $100 to benefit the National Corvette Museum and the Chip Miller Foundation, participants will enjoy two laps around the Museum with professionally shot pictures capturing the experience. Afterward you’ll get a complimentary photo, special poster and a certificate signed by Lance Miller and Wendell Strode to commemorate the event and thank you for your support.
Sign up for these limited spots through the event registration online beginning Friday.

Insurance Offerings by NCM Agency
The National Corvette Museum has expanded our insurance offerings to fit just about any needs! Check out our coverage:
Collector Cars – any year collector car, yes even new Corvettes. We even insure ALL other types of Collector Cars, not just Corvettes. The Collector Car policy will not cover vehicles used for errands or daily use type activities.
Car Club Liability Coverage and Directors & Officers Coverage – Helps protect the club from being sued if something happens while at a club sponsored show, cruise in, car cruise, etc. We also offer separate coverage for the Board and Officers from being held liable for the decisions they may make for the club.
High Performance Driving School Physical Damage Coverage – Provides coverage for the driver's car while on a race track. Most insurance companies now have specific wording in their auto policies to not cover any vehicle while on the track. This policy provides the coverage you need.
