[VIDEO] Go Behind the Scenes of the Rolex 24 at Daytona with Corvette Racing's Tommy Milner

Here’s a great video from Chevrolet featuring Corvette Racing and specifically American driver Tommy Milner as the team opened the 2015 season with the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Milner is now in his 5th season with the team and is paired with Oliver Gavin in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R. The duo, along with the addition of Simon Pagenaud, earned a third place finish in the GTLM class at Daytona.

In this video, we follow Tommy from waking up and arriving at the track to a podium finish 24 hours after the start of the race. It’s a rare glimpse of what it’s like to be a driver for the Corvette Racing team and how much of a toll a 24 hour endurance race can take on a driver.

Win Dale Jr.'s 2015 Corvette Stingray

Will you be the next person to shake Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s hand before he gives you the keys to his 2015 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe with the 3LT package?

You could become the latest in a small line of people who have won Dale Jr.’s Ride, a raffle entering its fifth year to raise money for The Dale Jr. Foundation, which is a charity dedicated to giving underprivileged individuals with a focus on youth, the resources to improve their confidence and education, and the opportunity to achieve extraordinary goals.

[PICS] 1966 Corvette Big Block Barn Find

To swing open the barn doors to find an iconic Corvette that has been stored inside for years is an amazing rush to those that have experienced it. While we can’t always be there in person to watch as an old Corvette that’s covered in a layer of fine dust is pulled from the barn to outdoors, perhaps for the first time in decades, we can relive that feeling though pictures.

The pictures of this 1966 Corvette barn find that were recently posted to Tumblr are amazing, but many questions still remain.

Last year we had some help upgrading a C6 Corvette with a new CORSA carbon fiber air intake and exhaust system as part of “Operation Air Flow” and the good folks at Smokey’s Dyno in Akron, OH served as our temporary installation headquarters.

Smokey’s recently had another visiting Corvette up on their dyno – a new 2015 Corvette Z06 with the Z07 performance package. Check out the dyno action as well as a little POV driving in the Corvette Z06 from the web magazine Winding Road.

Back in 2007 when this blog was still in its infancy, we attended one of our first live auctions as an official Corvette Blogger to cover some of the really cool Corvettes offered for sale. Hosted by RM Auctions, the December 2007 sale of the Al Wiseman Collection contained several prominent Corvettes including Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Harvest Gold 1955 Corvette Roadster.

But the real star of the auction, other than Val Kilmer’s Batmobile from Batman Forever, was a unique 1965 cut-away Corvette display created by General Motors to show off the inner-workings of the Corvette Sting Ray at its annual auto shows.

Comedian Jeff Dunham Drives the Corvette Stingray at Spring Mountain Motor Resort

When he was just 8 years old, Jeff Dunham got a dummy and an instructional record from his parents for Christmas.

Thus began his intense interest in ventriloquism, an interest that has turned him into one of the top comedians in the United States today.

In fact, Dunham’s latest gig is an impressive one, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Corvette's Manual Transmission Outsmarts Two Car Thieves in California

A writer on Corvette Forum played an April Fool’s prank on his readers last week when he jokingly said that Chevy was doing away with manual transmissions starting in 2017.

Two would-be thieves in California probably wish that hoax was true.

Apparently the bumbling criminals tried to steal a Corvette convertible on Wednesday, but the guy behind the wheel didn’t know how to drive a stick and ended up backing the sports car into a set of mailboxes.
