Camaro at Vegas Sprint Cup Race?

After seeing the pictures of the great Chevy Display at Daytona I'm wondering if I may luck into seeing any Camaro's at the Vegas race in 3 weeks?

Hard to say.....if its a "500" Pace car, then no. If its an official "Nascar" Pace car, then maybe, but that will also depend on what deal certain tracks have with manufacturers and the vehicles they use. I hope to see it all year long!

I wouldn't be surprised if they started bringing one to have at the Chevy display outside the track, I got lucky and got to see the Dale Jr. Camaro out there at Pheonix last year.

The pace car will be a Shelby Supersnake. The race is sponsored by Shelby Automobiles and will be called the "2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Shelby 427". The race will even be extended from the original 400 miles to 427 miles. Shelby will also sell 427 replica pace car edition Supersnakes.

There should be some at the chevy display, along with Corvettes, and probably at least 3/5 of the follwing Impala SS, Cobalt SS, HHR SS's, Traverse, and Malibu. Thats what I'd expect anyway.

Yes, in fact its right by the track.

Inside, I do not think there would be any way you would see the Camaro. Outside may be a good possibility as they really seem to be getting out and about and one would think that all the big 3 automakers would have displays. I have went the past two years but think I am going to pass this year and opt for Taladega. My luck, they will have the Camaro at Vegas...

That wasn't a super snake, it was a regular 2010 GT500.
