I got invited to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for parade lap in my camaro!

Hey everyone, I just got invited to take part in the pole day activities at the Brickyard on May 9th!!! The guy that sold me my car is the president of the Indiana Corvette club, and they are doing the parade lap on the 9th to open up the track, and he invited me to drive in the front of all of his club's Corvette's! After that, I get to hang out all day in the GM suite at the track and watch the fun! Before I get flamed for lying, I do have confirmation, but it's got too much sensitive info on it for me to post it here... I will most definitely post pics up here as soon as I take them next week though.... Are there any members of Corvette Indy on here that are also going to be there?

I hope I can... I am only allowed to bring one person and she will be in the passenger seat (same girl from the delivery thread I posted in case anyone is wondering)... Hopefully I can get someone from one of the cars behind me to do it... I will do all that I can to get you guys some pics at a minimum.

Richard, anyone that flames you should have to be your ammo carrier on your next tour. Go forth, enjoy the day and the attention and thanks 1000% for your service.

Is this a pic from the 400 in 2007? If it is, I was sitting about 200 feet to your right... I didnt go to last year's race though.

Thank you... I didnt think anyone would flame me, but I had to add that just in case. (I did come through on the last claim I made...) I really appreciate your support.

Plus you get to lead a lap at the "Brick" with some Vettes in your mirror. That's a moment you will never forget.

I still wanna be me though!

Mrs. Number 3 used to help with arranging such things for Corvette owners when she worked in Chevrolet Marketing. It was always a huge success with the owners.

This will be an awesome exerience. Make sure you have someone with a good camera in the stands and someone with a good camera riding shotgun if you can.

A lifetime memory for sure. I know you will enjoy it.
