The popularity of the Chevrolet Corvette has never been higher as the new C8 mid-engine design has won over a new legion of fans. The first two model years of the award-winning American sports car were sold-out and by all accounts, next year’s model may sell out as well. But there are ways to get behind the wheel of a 2021 Corvette this summer like this Elkhart Lake Blue Z51 Coupe offered by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

We can imagine an improvement in our morning commute behind the wheel of this 2021 Corvette Stingray that’s equipped with the award-winning 6.2L LT2 V8 with 495-hp while the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission offers both manual and auto modes. The Z51 Performance Package adds larger brakes and suspension package and includes Michelin summer tires and the NPP Dual-Mode exhaust which offers the perfect soundtrack for your driving adventures.
As this car is offered by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, let’s talk about its sprint capabilities. With its improved mid-engine configuration with 60% of the car’s weight over the rear tires, the C8 Corvette rockets 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and runs the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds, making it the quickest base model Corvette ever produced. Yet the Stingray also gets incredible good gas mileage and it’s not uncommon for owners to achieve 30 mpg or higher while on the highway.
The Corvette designers were inspired by fighter jets so it’s no surprise that the interior of the Stingray is oriented totally to the driver like that of a cockpit. Inside is the Sky Cool Gray leather interior with GT1 seats, Bose 10-Speaker Sound System, and Chevrolet’s infotainment system on an 8-inch color touch screen.
The 2021 Corvette has the latest tech and features a new Driver Mode on-screen visualizer, new track digital tachometer, and wireless Apple CarPlay /Android Auto connectivity.
Located in Knoxville, Iowa, the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is the only museum dedicated to sprint car racing. This annual fundraiser helps to support their on-going mission of promoting sprint car racing. The Grand Prize drawing takes place on August 14th but you can’t win if you don’t have tickets.
