This is a newer event -- looks to be a pretty good time for those in the area. I think I'll be there, with the new toy, hope to see others turn out and represent Camaro!!!

I agree, but if this picture is legitimate, then it will likely be AWD. RWD is out of the question here, unfortunately.

I doubt this car will be at the festival.

The 2014 Impala will be much bigger than the accord. Built on the same platform as Cadillac’s upcoming XTS sedan, the full-size Impala will actually be bigger than the current Impala. It will be built at GM’s Oshawa, Ontario assembly plant and at the automaker’s Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan, facility when it goes on sale next year.

Sorry, this will be a front wheel drive car with no AWD in the foreseeable future.

The car was debut at the NY auto show last week.

There is no Impala Coupe. A lot of Photoshops, but Impala will be sedan-only.

You don't need anything special to show off on your car. Just being a Camaro is quite special enough in a general auto show!

Yes. And access to the event, as well as a plaque saying you were there, and a lap around the speedway.

I don't believe this is any judged show - basically just a reserved parking area. The "Celebration of Automobiles" is the judged show.

Here is the schedule: http://www.indianapolismotorspeedway...5391-Schedule/


They are doing something similar for the Grand Am Race (Friday before the Brickyard). $50 for that as well and you get a general admission ticket to watch the Grand Am races!

I'll probably drive down Friday morning and then chill out that evening. It's about a 8 hour trip for me. Not bad...but I'd rather it be light out when I do it.

Does not look like I will make this car corral (or even opening day at this point).

I did however buy my ticket package for the 7/27 Grand Am Car Corral, maybe I will see some of you there
