SAVE THE STINGRAYS!

Last night we learned about a strange incident at the Texas State Fair where a participant at the Chevy Ride and Drive event crashed into two Corvette Stingrays with the back of 2014 Impala. We now have some more details from someone that was at the event and saw the crash first hand and told us that isn’t entirely accurate.

We’re debuting a new tag tonight called “SAVE THE STINGRAYS”. We think it’s only proper given the fact that learned tonight about another two or three C7 Corvettes that were taken out in a case of Bow-tie on Bow-tie violence in Texas.

According to Jalopnik, things got interesting at the Chevy Ride and Drive event on Wednesday afternoon at the Texas State Fair after an unidentified driver in the 2014 Impala hit two or three 2014 Corvette Stingrays, damaging at least two of the C7s as well as the Impala.
