I think it might be a "festival" car as you folks say but can not be 100% certain with out checking inside the car for more proof, Is their a way to find out for sure with out the papers you stated? was their any other record of origin? Still working on the car, I just have not had time to get back up to the dealer with work and the holidays.

Found this video don't know if you folks seen this yet?


I don't believe there was any indication other than what's
found with the car to show that is was a festival car. If
Autoguy is around, he maybe able to clarify that. You could
ask the dealer how many miles were on it when he got it.
If they say "none", then they may have been using it as a demo.

Here is the video that my salesman made for me at the Speedway before I picked up my car......


As far as I know, the only way to prove it is a Festival car is by the registration, plate and parking sticker. If none of these are present, it will be hard to prove it truly is a Festival Car down the road. To me, this is a detriment to the future value of the car.

Most of these Festival cars had in the neighborhood of 2,000 miles when they were distributed to the dealers after the race. I have seen some with as much as high 3k miles, and the dealer where I bought mine had one with only 329 miles in their shop when I picked mine up.

The car had 3,000 miles on it when it went to the dealer, I saw that on the car fax report, Also I do have the number off the windshield, PM me for it if you want. I have seen the video,very nice! if you looked at the parade video I posted I did not see a sticker on some of the cars above the number, unless it was the angle the person was shooting from?

All of those cars should have had a number. Like you said , it was probably just the angle of the camera.

PM me the car number and the dealer name where it is at. i will see what I can do to help authenticate it.
