Race fans visiting Daytona International Speedway for the season-opening Daytona 500 will have the opportunity to experience the Team Chevy Racing Display, filled with show cars, production vehicles, GM Performance Parts crate engines, parts and accessories, and participate in question-and-answer sessions with NASCAR champions Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon, and Daytona 500 winners Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray and Kevin Harvick, and Team Chevy drivers from all of NASCAR’s premier series.
“The Team Chevy Racing Display has something for the entire family,” said Jeff Chew, Marketing Manager, Chevy Racing. “Fans can ask questions of their favorite drivers during one of our several scheduled driver appearances, spend some time with one of our friendly product specialists and learn more about Chevy’s great 2012 vehicle lineup, and compete with other fans on our video race simulators. Also on display are Chevrolet Performance Parts crate engines and an assortment of accessories and performance parts for fans to purchase from their local Chevy dealer. There are NASCAR show cars, a Grand-Am GT Camaro, a Camaro ZL1, a Ricky Carmichael Sonic, and a couple of customized Chevy Sonics, too. We encourage everyone to stop by and see us.”
