They should show the actual pace car insted of a normal V6 RS

Chevyrocker 01-28-2009 11:34 AM

I agree, but at least we all know that it WILL in fact be the pace car for sure.

JJ#48Racing 01-28-2009 12:13 PM

WooHoo!! Now I'll be hoping for a few more cautions so I can see more of that beautiful machine! As long as Jimmie Johnson's not involved in a crash that is, lol.

That is great news. I am a big NASCAR fan so I always enjoy watching the Datona 500. With this news this years race will be more enjoyable that ever!

Probably wanting to hold the real one back and have a big unveiling for in the next week at the track...I bet it will have some special graphics. Who said the V6 RS was not going to be the pace car anyway? thats the one GM needs to promote if they want to keep the Camaro long term, besides the SS will sell without much help...

OK, I'm definately watching the 500 now. Anyone know what channel it will be on this year?

Your sig has a broken link

I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF ITS NAMED THE INDY 500 PACE CAR FOR THE 5TH TIME, BESIDES THE VETTE THAT IS SOME KIND OF ACHEIVEMENT.

GO #88

HERE IS ANOTHER THOUGHT, CAMARO PACE CAR REPLICAS? THEY'VE DONE SEVERAL IN THE PAST.

Based on past experience that is highly doubtful. Any time they have used a car thats not a corvette or other V8 powered car, they usually juice it up quite a bit. As well pace cars are almost always the top model available.

Its always on Fox.

MerlinZero 01-28-2009 01:43 PM

I want to see the saleable version....

mitchell87 01-28-2009 01:59 PM

Sorry this is a little of topic but i just need a yes or no answer so it is not worth starting a new thread. Im not a huge nascar buff:yikes: but was wondering if they are going to use the camaro body for the chevy cars since they no longer make monte carlos?

Well there hasn't ever been a 300 HP V6 before in an American car to do the Pace car duties... There hasn't been any"Juicing" of the Nascar pace cars in a very long time, they are not Indy cars and the pace speeds are never over 70.... they have even used pickup trucks in the past...and for several years before the V8 Monte SS and Impalas they have used the stock V6 models... nothing really special about the equipment on these pace cars.
If I can do 85 at Bristol in my 170HP Sky I think a 300HP V6 Camaro can handle the Pace car duties at Daytona very well....

Usually Indy Pace cars, Not the Daytona Pace cars...
I can see them using the V6 for Daytona and Using an SS for Indy....

no, the Impala in Cup and Monte Carlo still in Nationwide... I think they are looking into going to the Camaro for the Nationwide cars, but I haven't heard anything lately about it...

The Great KJ 01-28-2009 02:21 PM

That would be great to see a Camaro running around the track with a #88 on it

GM is using the Impala. The lower series (Nationwide Series), was proposed to use the Challenger, maybe the Camaro and Mustang, but toyota cried and whined 'cus those losers don't have a ponycar to run in said series. Sooooo, Brian France kissed toyota's azz once again and canned the idea, much to the dismay of the domestic automakers and old-school nascar fans alike. Since I was once a nascar fan for over 20 years, I can safely say Brian France and his toyota-loving contingent have screwed up the entire race series, but at least an AMERICAN make is pacing the Daytona 500. Surprised toyota didn't whine about that too. toyota sucks.
