DETROIT (Nov. 5, 2007) – To help celebrate the 50th running of the Daytona 500, Chevrolet will be providing 50 race fans from 50 different states a once-in-a-lifetime weekend experience at the Daytona 500 on Feb. 17, 2008, while 10 of those individuals will win a brand new Chevy Impala.
“The Chevy Great American Race Experience was created to honor the golden anniversaries of two American icons,” said Ed Peper, general manager of Chevrolet. “Our long history in NASCAR and our valued partnership with Daytona International Speedway allows us to provide unique, first-hand experiences to 50 winners who will help celebrate these significant milestones at the ‘World Center of Racing.’”
Beginning on Oct. 16 and through Dec. 3, fans can visit Chevy.com/Daytona500 to enter.
“We’re excited to be able to host Chevrolet’s special guests at “The World Center of Racing” during this historic Daytona 500 weekend,” said Speedway President Robin Braig. “Chevrolet’s promotion is a great way to have fans take part in the most anticipated event in racing history.”
Each individual randomly chosen to represent their state will win a trip for two to the Daytona 500 weekend including two tickets for all three NASCAR events taking place that weekend—the Chevy Silverado 250 Craftsman Truck Series event, the Camping World 300 Busch Series race and the 50th running of the Daytona 500. The experience also includes VIP behind-the-scenes access to the Daytona 500, a lap around historic Daytona International Speedway, private Chevy parties, meet and greets with Team Chevy drivers as well as airfare and four nights of lodging.
Additionally, 10 of the winners will be selected during the race weekend to win a 2008 50th Anniversary Chevy Impala. After 50 years the Impala is one of America’s top 10 selling vehicles (during the 2006 model year) offering power and efficiency in an attractive package. From its legendary small-block V8 to Active Fuel Management and E85 capability on select 2008 models, the Impala is a proven winner on and off the race track.
