NASCAR's Rick Hendrick Visits NCM

The National Corvette Museum was abuzz on Tuesday when NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick arrived, taking delivery of not one but three Corvettes! In addition to the 2011 Inferno Orange Carbon Edition (VIN 001), 2011 Black Carbon Edition (only black carbon in existence, and the last one made) and the 2012 Centennial Edition Z06 (VIN 100), Mr. Hendrick brought along three cars from his collection for display and photo ops, including the 2011 Le Mans Tribute Corvette the Museum auctioned at Barrett-Jackson to raise funds for the Motorsports Park.

After touring the Museum and taking a test drive of the simulators, the group enjoyed lunch in the Museum's Conference Center, catered by the Corvette Cafe. "If there's a Corvette junkie in the world I'm it," said Hendrick at the luncheon. Hendrick presented the Museum with two checks for $2,500 - one from Hendrick Motorsports and the other from Hendrick Automotive Group. You can watch the video of Rick at the luncheon here on our You Tube channel, and there are a few other candid videos posted from that day. Also check out some photos we've shared online from the visit here.

100 Days Until the 100th Anniversary

We're just under 100 days from the 100th Anniversary of Chevrolet, and GM is celebrating in some unique ways!

Teaming up with Pandora Internet radio, GM has created a special "Chevy 100" channel to celebrate the milestone birthday. The station will play the top 100 songs that mention Chevrolet cars, including Prince's "Little Red Corvette." Check out the Pandora station here.

Other celebratory initiatives include the Centennial Edition Corvette which Bash attendees got to check out first-hand, a nationwide rollout of the Volt, sponsorship of this year's Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit and special website promotions at www.Chevy100.com - including the chance to vote for the BEST Chevy of all time.

The Museum has a few celebrations of our own, including a 100 Years of Chevrolet exhibit kicking off Monday and running thru the end of December. The exhibit includes a 1912 Little, 1939 Produce Truck, 1942 War Car and models such as the Impala, Bel Air, Corvair, Malibu, Chevelle and more!

See You at Carlisle!

We're just a month out from Corvettes at Carlisle and we hope you've been making plans to attend!

Participate in autocross, dyno testing, burnouts, and the parade through historic downtown Carlisle. Check-out the swap meet with a wide variety of vendors, an all-Corvette car corral, Manufacturers Midway and Installation Alley.

Corvette Racing Wins Grand Prix of Mosport

Corvette Racing returned to the winner's circle at the Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport as Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen scored the team's first American Le Mans Series victory of the season. Gavin and Magnussen won the GT class by 4.4 seconds in their No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R over the Ferrari 458 Italia of Jaime Melo and Toni Vilander. Tommy Milner and Olivier Beretta finished sixth in the No. 3 Compuware Corvette C6.R after contact with a backmarker cost them valuable time on the high-speed Canadian circuit.

The Museum was on hand at the race to cheer on the team, and even won the club participant award at the Corvette Corral. The visit to the race was part of the "Museum in Motion" series. You can experience a VIP "MiM" trip as we travel to the home of NASCAR August 15-18. Spots are still available. Learn more online here!
