When you enter to win this fabulous limited-edition 2022 Corvette Stingray, you are directly helping the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, the only non-profit museum dedicated to preserving the history and passion of sprint car racing.
The 2022 Corvette C8.R Edition commemorates Corvette Racing’s sweep of the GT Le Mans (GTLM) Championships by Corvette Racing’s mid-engine C8.R in its inaugural year of racing. During the 2020 campaign, the C8.R would win IMSA’s Manufacturers, Drivers, and Team Championships. Chevrolet is celebrating that trifecta of championships with the production of just 1,000 examples of the 2022 Corvette IMSA GTLM Championship Edition. For its grand prize, the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame has secured a Hypersonic Gray Coupe which will be given away next August.
These special edition C8 Corvettes include a number of specific features starting with the Corvette Racing-themed graphics. The Hypersonic Gray versions show off Accelerate Yellow full-length race stripes over the car and the “C8.R Edition” graphic under the fuel door. Also included are the Carbon Flash High Wing Spoiler, Black Trident wheels with Corvette Racing “Jake” center caps, and Yellow brake calipers. Rounding out the exterior content are Carbon Flash exterior mirrors, Black composite rocker extensions, and splash guards.
Inside the Corvette IMSA GTLM Championship Edition is a 3LT interior featuring the Strike Yellow/Sky Cool Gray GT2 seats, Yellow seat belts, and the C8.R special edition numbered interior plaque which shows the sequence number of build.
At the heart of the C8.R Edition is the award-winning 495-hp 6.2L LT2 V8 engine that is mated to the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Every C8.R Edition includes the track-capable Z51 Performance Package which adds more cooling for the engine and brakes, an upgraded suspension, unique aerodynamics kit, and better tires with the inclusion of Michelin’s Pilot Sport 4S summer rubber. The Z51 package allows for 0-60 mph sprints in 2.9 seconds and running the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds at 121 mph!
At of the beginning of September, GM announced that nearly half of the 1,000 Corvette C8.R Editions have already been sold, and with interest in the car high among Corvette Racing fans, there is no doubt that Chevrolet will sell out of the entire 1,000 run. Unless you are already on a dealer’s list for this special edition Corvette, this sweepstakes may be your only opportunity to get one!
We had the opportunity to see the C8.R Editions for ourselves at the National Corvette Museum and have included some of our photos here which are for reference only. We’ll announce the build sequence number and share any additional content items once the actual 2022 Corvette arrives at the National Sprint Car Museum 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 ongoing mission of promoting sprint car racing.
