Velocity’s Americarna returns to TV tonight for Season 3 and one of the segments will feature host Ray Evernham visiting the National Corvette Museum. The show will air tonight (Thursday, March 3rd) at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the Velocity channel.
Americarna will recap the National Corvette Museum’s infamous sinkhole disaster where eight Corvettes were swallowed up when the floor dropped out of the Museum’s Sky Dome just over two years ago. The feature will include exclusive original footage of the Corvettes being rescued, as well as interviews and behind the scenes planning with the team that performed the restoration of the 1 millionth Corvette.
“This new season of AMERICARNA offers more exclusive, captivating stories than ever before,” said Robert Scanlon, General Manager of Velocity and Automotive Content. “Ray picks up where he left off as one of the most knowledgeable car experts around. He has greater access to industry insiders and headline makers to bring extraordinary stories to the AMERICARNA series.”
Ray Evernham speaks with former GM Plant employee Angela Lamb, who signature was the only not saved on the 1-millionth Corvette restoration. Angela signed the replacement part at the car’s unveiling.
The Corvette Museum’s Skydone was restored and opened last year. Just this month, the NCM cut the ribbon on a new exhibit called the Sinkhole Experience which details and educates visitors about the unique geology which contributed to the sinkhole.
