The Inaugural 1994 Brickyard 400 Corvettes !

1994 was the inaugural Brickyard 400 Nascar race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Chevrolet stepped up again this year and provided no less than 137 support vehicles for the race.

Although the Monte Carlo was awarded the rights to be the "Official Pace Car", twenty five 1994 Corvette convertibles served as support vehicles.

The Corvettes were primarily used to introduce the 43 Nascar drivers in a parade lap prior to the start of the race during driver introductions.

There were thirteen Red and twelve Black convertibles used, and most carried two drivers on the lap, with their names displayed on the hoods.

They also carried civic, Nascar, and Manufacturer dignitaries on other parade laps, people like "the King" Richard Petty and Bobby Allison, and Mayor Goldsmith of Indianapolis.

It is unknown how many of these cars still exist in "full dress" since many dealers just removed the graphics when they received the cars after the race.

Car number 76 was used to carry the race winner, Jeff Gordon on his victory lap.

For more detailed information on this year, we have a great story by noted Author Tom Commons posted in our Registry Documentation Library for our Members to enjoy.

We have also just added a link to a vintage video of these cars in action at the race!
