Last week we showed you some of the fine Corvettes in attendance at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN). In addition to those exceptional rides, a strong contingent of Corvette racers was also present at the show. The racecars were gathered into 2 separate groups in Chicago, but we’ve combined them into one stupendous gallery just beyond that Read More button below.
The first of the 2 groups consisted of Yenko-related Corvettes and were included in a special display with about 60 other Yenko supercars. The Corvettes present had either been driven by Don Yenko himself or had been delivered at his famous Chevrolet dealership. It was hard to pick a favorite in this crowd (even with 2 Sunray DX L88’s), but it’s pretty tough to beat a Daytona Yellow 1969 coupe with a Yenko badge mounted next to the menacing 4-2-7 on the high rise hood.
The 2nd group was partially comprised of several cars owned-by or created-by Corvette restoration guru Kevin Mackay including the C2 and C3 see-thru cars as well as the renowned Penske L88 racer (a CorvetteBlogger fave). Note that the earliest known Mark 4 427 engine sits inside that transparent C2. ProTeam Corvette displayed their recently completed Dick Lang 1963 Z06 as well as a 1953 Chevrolet Engineering car. The National Corvette Museum’s bright yellow Bethke racer completed the roster of cars in this section.
As you know we’re pretty big fan boys of Corvette racecars here. Enjoy our gallery some of the best competition Corvettes below.
