Heavyt100, how fast did you go? I would've high-jacked the car from Johnson and really tested it!

It's extremely possible that the cyber grey just doesn't pop like it does on the corvette. Look at the traverse.... just doesn't get me going as well as the corvette. This is one of the concerns that I had with it. Just my opinion.

Yes there are flakes in it. This car is Graphite Grey(Evo), and it is metallic, you cannot see blue in all the time, it depends on lighting.

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

All you need to do is park! You do not need ticket to get to the outside the track displays. The Chevy display is outside the track. No cost if you can find a place to park for free. You could take your chances at the mall, but they will fine you they catch you lol.

Wait about 6 months and you'll be seeing them everywhere for free.
