Chevy Camaro Returns as Official Pace Car for 51st Daytona 500; Iconic 2010 Model Returns to the "Great American Race" After 40-Year Absence

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (Feb. 7, 2009) -- Daytona International Speedway officials announced the return of the Chevy Camaro as the Official Pace Car of the 51st running of the Daytona 500--the first Camaro to pace the field since 1969.

"Chevy has been a great partner of the Daytona 500 for more than 30 years, and the Camaro is an automotive icon,'" said Speedway President Robin Braig. "This 2010 model will set the tone for a 21st century sports car, and that's a perfect fit to lead the pack at the 'Great American Race.''

The 426-horsepower vehicle, powered by the 6.2-liter all-aluminum Chevy V-8, carries a PPG Cyber Grey paint scheme with a bold accent design befitting "The World Center of Racing." A Camaro has paced the field just twice in Dayton 500 history, in 1968 and '69, and this 2010 model is scheduled to hit showroom floors this spring.

Built on GM's new global rear-wheel drive architecture, the Camaro also will be offered in V-6-powered LS and LT models. Additional specs of the 2010 model pace car include:

* All-aluminum 6.2-liter V-8

* 426 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque

* Fully integrated strobe system, including a GM-designed custom light bar utilizing Whelen 500 series linear strobes

* 27-mpg estimated highway fuel economy

* Fuel-saving Tremec 6-speed manual transmission

* Top speed of xxx mph on the test track

They are doing some practice for the Daytona 500 today. I have no idea why they wouldn't show it and a lot more of it.

im getting Cyber Gray

bluecobaltkid 02-07-2009 12:55 PM

That is hot.. The cyber grey looks sick..

wlknthedog 02-07-2009 01:06 PM

Looks real nice.

I suspect the Cyber is working jast as planned, it will look lighter in the bright light and darker in the cloud cover/night time. One thing I noticed missing was the SS badging o n the rear.

Silver Streak 02-07-2009 01:11 PM

Man I have pictures too, but can't upload them, I think they are too large! This bums me out, I have pictures of the Pace car as well as the silver, black, and Jr's car! I am bummed. First time I seen the car though and pictures do not do it justice at all! It is gorgeous. Hopefully I will be able to post them somehow later on. I am glad I picked CGM, it is awesome in person.

Badger 02-07-2009 01:17 PM

Hey you got yellow on my Cyber Gray!:drool: :confused0068: finally!

camaroguy 02-07-2009 01:23 PM

No, it will not. Tonight is a Z06 Corvette. There was also a Malibu out there, but the Z06 will be the pace car.
