Michelin Named Official Tire of Motorsports Park and Museum

Michelin, a global tire manufacturer, has committed to a three-year sponsorship deal naming them as the official tire of the NCM Motorsports Park. The announcement was made this morning during the Museum's annual "NCM Bash" event.

"Michelin is pleased to extend our relationship with the Corvette community to include the exciting new NCM Motorsports Park," said Silvia Mammone, motorsports and sponsorship marketing manager, Michelin North America.

"The fact that every new Corvette C7 Stingray and Z06 Corvette now rolls out of Bowling Green exclusively on Michelin tires aligns perfectly with the launch of the NCM Motorsports Park and our growing relationship with the Corvette Nation."

To date, there are already more than 130 days booked at the track in the first year. "We look forward to also working with Michelin as a customer at the Park for possible product launches, testing and consumer activities," stated Mitch Wright, Motorsports Park General Manager.

Chevrolet Announces Two New Design Packages

Chevrolet announced today the 2015 Corvette Stingray will be available in two new design packages: the Atlantic luxury convertible and the Pacific performance coupe.

Luxury GT-focused Atlantic Convertible: inspired by the luxury and performance of private jets seen at European vacation destinations, offered exclusively on Z51-equipped convertibles and is available in 2LT or 3LT trims.

Track-focused Pacific Coupe: inspired by West Coast Drivers who attend weekend track events, offered exclusively as a Z51-equipped coupe, in 2LT or 3LT trims.

Both cars are on display this weekend during the Museum's NCM Bash event, giving an up close view of all the special touches GM has included in the packages. Read the full description of them on our blog here.

Country Music Star Jake Owen Visits

Rising Country Music star Jake Owen is the new owner of a 2014 Arctic White Convertible Stingray, so what better way to welcome him to the Corvette family than with a tour of the National Corvette Museum during our NCM Bash?

"Iíve always been a fan of the Corvette, but until you have a Corvette I donít think you realize the passion behind it. Itís like a club or almost like a cool cult of people that have them... they are so proud of these cars. Itís the pinnacle of American-made sports cars, and being an American and doing what I do, playing music for people around this beautiful country, itís just a staple of what America is. Thatís why I was excited to come here because itís one thing to drive down the highway in a car, I was excited as well to go to the factory and meet the people that are building these cars and say 'thanks... thanks for making me look cool.'"

Jake is sharing his Corvette passion with 1-year old daughter, Pearl. Pearl also visited the Museum, where dad purchased her very first Corvette - a pink Barbie Power Wheels Stingray.
