I wouldn't be surprised if it is the Dale Jr car as the pace car with a little extra badging on it...

i only watch big nascar races, but i hope they wind up using the 'maro in nascar a couple years down the road as a racecar. cuz i'm not much of a fan of the impala. [though in the end it's just a name sticker on the car]

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"
Yes a friend of mine has one of those Blue Monte's. The Chicago Race I went to in 05 had like 100 Chargers for the event, it was quite a show.

Thanks for the info

Yeah they definitely did. I will be pretty disgusted if they stick the CoT wing on the back of the Camaro like they did with the Impala.

Couldn't find a picture of the Impala but stumbled across this. Off topic, but I don't ever remember the batmobile being the pace car, its apparently real though.

Huge Nascar fan here! GREAT news! Cant wait to see it... And can't wait to watch Jr win his second 500! Or Mark Martin win his first!

I remember the Batmobile (or Tumbler as batman fans will recognize) leading the field. Cant remember which race it was though. It actually only lead the field prior to green flag. If you look in the picture, you can see the real Pace Car in front of the field in yellow.

Holding out Hope for a really Suprise. Hoping for something along these lines.

After many long hours and sleepless nights from our Camaro Team, We are proud to anncounce that the Camaro's Productoin Date is just a day away instead of a Month away. And How here is the 2010 Chevy Camaro Pace Car.

^^^
Wishful thinking I Know. Maybe It will come True.

Nice! I remember the Batmobile being on the track. That was at one of the Michigan races and it was just paraded around before the race. They did the same thing with the concept camaro at that same race I believe, but it only came out for like a lap. When the 03 Mach 1 Mustang came out it paced the last race of the season at Homestead and it was plain with the race logo on the door, I'm hoping IOM, I really wanna see it on the camaro in person.

Cool news. I'm a big Nascar fan and will be watching the race regardless. But now I have something to watch during the caution laps.

It was the Batman Begins 400 in June 2005 at Michigan. I was there and there was no Camaro.
