One of the coolest displays at this year’s Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) in Chicago was the Corvette Race Car Invitational. Ten significant racers from Corvette’s early years made up this year’s display including a pair of 1963 Z06’s and several L88’s.
The MCACN team always assembles the best of the best when it comes to their invitational displays and 2014 was no exception. Six second generation Corvettes and four C3’s comprised the Corvette Race Car Invitational this year. Cars from all corners of the country were invited to participate.
Included in this year’s display were the famous blue and yellow Penske L88 and green and yellow Band Aid racers owned by restoration guru Kevin Mackay. Mid America’s Mike Yager showed his bright red #4 Rebel L88 convertible racer while collector Irwin Kroiz brought his red white and blue Sunray DX L88 car. The 2 1963 Z06’s – 1 blue and 1 black – were shown by The National Corvette Museum and collector Chris Piscitello respectively. Rounding out the bunch were Bill Skinner’s silver 1966 Daytona racer, Kent Hussey’s 1968 Yenko Widebody, Ed Foss’ see through C2 with the earliest known Mark IV big block power plant, and the 1966 Harold Whims L88 owned by Scott Freese.
This was easily one of the best Corvette race car displays we’ve seen in quite some time. The amount of history in that circle was second to none. If only those cars could talk!
