take my Camaro around track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway?

Dealer asked today if on May 15th I'd like to take my Camaro, VictORia for a couple of laps around the track, I think it's going to be many Camaro's, hopefully anyone w/Camaro can drive it, I don't know much more, I just thanked her and went back to work when she said she'd have more details in a week or so, figure I'll learn more soon. Anyone else know anything about this? Is it gonna cost more than the gas???

At last--Dream HAS BECOME Reality....

Shouldn't. If you're invited, that usually means you get to do a parade lap or two.

The Hurst/Olds club (among others) goes to Indy every 5 years and part of the event is the parade lap thing. It was pretty fun. No getting squirrely though.

Here's a shot from driver's seat in my 84 Hurst/Olds from the 2004 meet:


2010 2SS/RS Auto, Sunroof, Engine Cover. Transformer Edition package.
2013 ZL1 ragtop #5478. 1 of 54 CRT M6 'verts.

A bunch of us did it 2 1/2 years ago when GM first showed us a few early 5th gens. It will be free but I think you cannot go faster than 40 mph. It was a neat experience and they take a picture of your car as it goes over the brick finish line.

I did that in my 2001 Z28 at the Indy 2008 event. That was COOL!

Definitely do it if you have the chance!

Definitely go do it! It's worth it just to say you've been on the track where so many greats have raced. I did it back in '04 with the Marauder club. It was great fun.

+1 to what was said above, though: don't goof off. One of our club members laid down a little rubber and the track officials pounced on him faster than I thought you could get a Colorado pickup to move.

Photographic evidence of him getting busted:
