2010 Camaro to pace the Kobalt Tools 500 race on Sunday
 
Looks like the Camaro pace cars from the Daytona 500 will be recycled with new decals and used again as pace cars on Sunday.

Confirmed as reason #36 to be at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the 100th NASCAR race held there. http://www.atlantamotorspeedway.com/...ws/544472.html

Cool:thumbsup:. I'm digging those Camaro-specific John Deere racing seats too lol! Heard they are very comfortable.

I would rather watch that Camaro run around the track by itself instead of listening to that idiot toyota-loving stroke Darrell Waltrip spew worthless drivel from his soup-cooler. That guy is a jackass. Reason # 3,457 not to watch nascar anymore.....unfortunately.

I hate nascar, bunch of rednecks racing in circles, but I might tune in with the sound turned off just so I can see the pace car ....

That is funny since the majority of Nascar drivers are no longer from the south.(California has more than any other state)... and most have college educations...So much for your Knowlege of Nascar...

(The eight who list California as their home state are AJ Allmendinger, David Gilliland, Jeff Gordon, Robby Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Casey Mears and Scott Speed.)

I'm in college and I like Nascar. :wave:

I am not a big fan of the graphics on the car, but its good to see a Camaro out there as the pace car.

Idk I think I kinda like the the Indy one better. I just think there is too much yellowish/orange graphics on the Daytona and Atlanta ones.

to me, it just looks like a 13 year old came up with the graphics the night before the car was supposed to be done.

All I can say to you guys is you have to go to a Nascar race before you die. It is that incredible. If you have only watched it on TV, you have no idea what it's like. Go.:chevy:

Argh, I almost bought tickets to this race too! :mad0259:

I don't mind Darrell, but his brother Michael is the worst driver in Nascar, it seemed like he wrecked in almost every race last season.

Aside from a small handfull of older drivers, there isn't any redneck left in Nascar. That's why I started watching a few years ago.
