[GALLERY] National Corvette Seller Mike Furman Drives the Corvette Z06 at Spring Mountain

Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.

Mike was out of the office this week so there will be no regular Delivery Dispatch. But he was still working if you call driving the Corvette Z06 at Spring Mountain work!

[VIDEO] Ron Fellows Talks About the Michelin Corvette Challenge

The big news in the air for Corvette fans at the SEMA show last week was the new Michelin Corvette Challenge racing series to be held at the Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club starting in February.

So to understand the series a bit more, we corralled Ron Fellows and Chevrolet’s Mark Dickens to talk about the series and the specific Z06 performance parts that Chevrolet was making available for the Challenge Corvettes as well as anyone else who wants to add performance to their Corvette Stingrays.

Go Racing in the Michelin Corvette Challenge at Spring Mountain

Calling all racers (with the means to buy an enhanced Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe)!

Like the days of old where Corvettes were so good at racing that they had their own Challenge series, Spring Mountain will be hosting a spec-Corvette racing series kicking off in early 2016.

The Michelin Corvette Challenge will feature 15 races over eight weekends in 2016 where participants will race identical track-ready Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupes on Spring Mountain’s 6.1 mile track.

Chevrolet showed off the Corvette Stingray Track Day Concept which features the Z06-based performance parts that will be used in the spec-racing series.

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.

[VIDEO] CorvetteBlogger Visits the Ron Fellows Driving School at Spring Mountain

This year was pretty remarkable for us here at CorvetteBlogger. Not only do we get to talk and write everyday about America’s favorite sports car – the Chevrolet Corvette – but occasionally we get to drive the new Corvettes on a race track as well!

After having the unique opportunity to drive a 2015 Corvette Stingray on GM’s Milford Road Course earlier in the year, I realized my skill level at driving the Corvette fast on the track was not something I was real comfortable with, so I took up an offer to attend a two-day Level 1 driving course at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada.

[VIDEO] Take a Ride with Danica Patrick in the Corvette Stingray at SEMA

It’s not every day that someone gets to ride in a high-performance sports car like a 2014 Corvette Stingray.

And it’s certainly not every day that someone gets to ride with the likes of former IndyCar and current NASCAR driver Danica Patrick behind the steering wheel.

But that’s exactly what Dustin Wilson of The Block.com got to do during the 2014 SEMA show held last week in Las Vegas.

The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain has been named the “Official Performance Driving School of the National Corvette Museum” and “Official Partner of the NCM Motorsports Park.”

The announcement came last week during the museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration that also featured thousands of participants in the National Corvette Caravan.
