One of our favorite days of the year is once again upon us! For the last 12 years, Mid America Motorworks Chief Cheerleader Mike Yager has urged Corvette enthusiasts to drive their Corvettes to work to show the popularity of America’s Sports Car. The annual holiday is always on the Friday closest to June 30th, which of course is the official birthday of the Corvette, and so that makes this Friday, June 29th as the official day to drive your Corvette to work!
Drive Your Corvette to Work Day
Today was the 11th annual National Drive your Corvette to Work Day. It’s the one day where we try to get as many Corvettes on the street as possible. The holiday gets people talking about Corvettes as well as the opportunity for Corvette owners to meet new Corvette owners. Did you drive your Corvette to work today? Send us a photo and well add it here to our growing collection.
For the last eleven years, the Friday closest to June 30th is chosen as the day to drive your Corvette to work. Mid America’s Mike Yager came up with the concept as a way to show just how popular Corvettes are. The date for this year’s National Drive Your Corvette to Work day is this Friday, June 24th.
Friday’s usually find me in downtown Tampa where I pay a weekly visit to my datacenter and since today was Drive Your Corvette to Work day, I drove my 1966 Corvette. So here is a quick video I put together of (drumroll) yes, me driving my Corvette to work!
The 10th annual Drive Your Corvette to Work Day will held on Friday, June 25th. In honor of this special day, Corvette enthusiasts across the United States are encouraged to make America’s sports car their commuter car for the day. Every year, the Friday closest to June 30th which is Corvette’s official birthday, is chosen as the day to drive your Corvette to work.
