Anyone who has restored his father’s old car can understand exactly where Tony Meehan is coming from.

Corvette Racing fans were spoiled over the last few years with the “Track to Street” series that gave enthusiasts an upclose and personal look at the people and the cars over the course of the last two ALMS and Le Mans seasons. With three races having already been run in 2012, and no “Track to Street” videos, thinking was that the series was no more.
Well here is some good news. Pratt & Miller posted this new video called Corvette Racing ‘Flat Out’ on their Facebook page and is documents the season opener at the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Here is yet another case of a Corvette owner trying to show off and failing miserably but being very fortunate at the same time. This video comes from a Cars and Coffee get together in Dallas. Like many of these popular Cars and Coffee events that take place around the country, there is sometimes a show put on by attendees when they leave the premises. Unfortunately for our hero in this C5 Z06, it didn’t go quite as planned.

Team Penske driver Ryan Briscoe averaged 226.484 mph to win the pole for this Sunday’s 96th Annual Indianapolis 500.

There’s a little bit of Corvette in every Chevrolet product made, including the small-size Sonic.
That’s the word from John Buttermore, the lead development engineer for the Sonic, who also happens to be the defending SCCA Touring 1 Class champion in his No. 52 T1 Corvette.
We dropped the rumor last week that Guy Fieri is in contention to be the pace car driver at this year’s Indianapolis 500 and today we learned that its official. The celebrity chef and Corvette owner will be driving the 2013 Corvette ZR1 to start the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27th.
