NHL Goalie Craig Anderson Visits Ron Fellows Corvette Driving School

While visiting the NCM during the Bash, I was going through the different galleries when I came across a group of people watching a video of hockey highlights. One lady turned to me and said “What does hockey have to do with Corvettes?” I replied that the highlights are of Craig Anderson who wears Corvette Racing’s Jake on his goalie helmet. Of course the next question was “Who is Jake?” and that took some explaining as well, but I digress.

Goalie Craig Anderson, who plays for the Ottawa Senators, has been a lifelong Corvette enthusiast and has owned Corvettes since he was 18. His current ride is a 2007 Corvette Z06. His love of Corvettes comes from his father, NCM Board Member Richard Anderson, who has owned and raced the sports car in SCCA events.

I particularly liked the flaming skull in front of the massive Chevy 510. It’s more Ghost Rider than Jake, but when you’re on one of the fastest C4 Corvettes ever built, it’s only the graphics on the rear that will be seen. Make sure you check out the video, especially around the 3:20 mark.
