Announcing: 2008 National Corvette Challenge May 9-10, 2008

10/21/07 - The National Corvette Challenge is back! We are happy to announce that the National Corvette Challenge will be returning for the 2008 year. The huge success we had in this year's race has helped up secure a date for 2008. We will be returning to Richmond Dragway where we had over 130 race entries and over 50 show entries in February! Steve Oyer will once again take the lead role in organizing this event with the help of Bill Wilson and myself, Edgar Perez. The Bracket Race will be the feature in this event that will include three heads-up classes and a people's choice Corvette show. Participation is open to all Corvettes. With racer participation and sponsorship, we hope to achieve, if not exceed, payouts from this year where our Bracket winner received $1,000 and our heads-up winners received $750. For those who choose not to race or race and show, you can enter a people's choice award show where you can earn a trophy for the cleanest, coolest Corvettes of the show while you watch the greatest all Corvette drag racing action in 2008.

We are also happy to announce the 2008 event will be a two day event. The Race Day will be Saturday, May 10, 2008 but we will also have a Corvette only Friday Test and Tune evening. That is right, we will be able to test on Friday and we have some plans in the works to maybe have a gamblers bracket race for those who wish to compete. Details will be forthcoming but for now, mark your calendars, May 9-10, 2008, National Corvette Challenge, be there!

We will begin contacting potential sponsors for the event shortly starting with this year's sponsors and will announce them as they come on board. If you would like to become a sponsor, we offer a great opportunity to put you business in front of large Corvette audience with national coverage for this event. Contact Steve Oyer or Edgar Perez for opportunities.

This is a Corvette Club, This is a Corvette event with a car show too. From Pa to this location would be a 4 to 4 1/2 hour drive. Not a bad drive on a Saturday or even on a Friday if you decide to come down early to play or even hang out and watch the SPECIAL VETTES ONLY TEST & TUNE on Friday from 1pm to 5pm.

This would most likely be the 1st car show for 2008, Correct me if I am wrong.

Time to clean the dust off the car and you if needed
From my house in Old Bridge NJ it is about 330 miles. Most Vettes can do that on 1 tank of fuel.

LETS GO PEOPLE, SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS GREAT EVENT. I MAY SHARE A ROOM WITH SOMEONE. MY WIFE CANNOT MAKE THE TRIP.
