Camaro as a pace car.. There is a god.

But ya know, Toyota probably will whine as Rally said. And using the 'leverage' of being the 'worlds largest automaker' may get their way after slamming 20 million cash on Le Douche's desk.

Then we'll get a Camry as the pace and pace laps will no longer be able to exceed 40mph.. And the race no faster than 100MPH to 'save gas'. Now where did that Ice pick go..?

actually that is how most pace cars are done in nascar they are just loaner cars that are returned after their use and sold through a dealer...
It is part of the track sponsership deal. which ever manufacturer has the sponsership at that track provides cars and trucks to use during the race weeks and for general track use. later those are returned and sold.
Being the Camaro will not be an actual production car at that time I doubt that It will be sold....It may go on display in the "Daytona Experience"

I think this is the last year Chevy has the sponsership of the Daytona track, look for Toyota to be a pace car there next year...

And at the "Ladies start your engines!", all we'll hear are fart cans. And the race will be moved to late at night to show off the neon light up drivers numbers.. With names like Kenichi Nippynongi

And the race will become known as the Rice-a-roni 5.

Yup, I even found some pictures online of the test Challengers for the Nationwide series.



Would have been awesome to see Mustangs and Camaros too, can't believe Nascar got rid of the idea, the cars would look great.

Well, if they really want to be nostalgic, then the car will be white.

Hey everybody! I'm a brand new member but have been following this site and the 2010 camaro for a long time now. I am a big nascar fan and I'm making the trip from Indiana to Daytona in two weeks. I'll try to get all the pictures that I can. GM will not use a V6 as the pace car, last year the Z06 paced it and it was gold...Daytona usually has multicolored vehicles pace the race so it's hard telling what the car will look like. Can't wait to see it in person again. I saw the yellow RS at the brickyard 400 in july and didn't care for the color too much.

I was thinking the same thing, it seems like the Corvette pace cars normally get a special paint job BUT since Chevy is trying to show the Camaro to people who might not have seen it yet, they might want to just leave it in a normal paint scheme with maybe a couple Daytona 500 decals on it.

Question

Are these cars going to be pre production. I think a post I read here said that the production cars wouldn't start until March16th(after the race)
