General Motors is currently in the midst of launching Chevy MyWay, a new online service that allows customers to speak to a Chevy sales representative and view its latest products through a live stream video chat. To promote the launch of Chevy MyWay, the automaker had representatives from the service host a stream during this past weekend’s Daytona 500, which provided viewers with background on Chevy’s history at Daytona, its current on-track NASCAR activities and, most importantly, an up-close look at the 2021 Daytona 500 pace car line up.
The 2021 Daytona 500 pace car is a C8 Corvette Stingray finished in Rapid Blue with unique black, white and red pace car graphics. A Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE pace car in an identical Rapid Blue livery led the field to green for the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, while a Chevy Silverado 1500 RST finished in the same eye-popping exterior hue served as the pace vehicle for Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event. This gave Chevy a huge on-track presence at the Daytona Speedweeks, even if a Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE driver didn’t win this year’s running of the Great American Race.
The replay of the Chevy MyWay live stream, which is embedded below, gives us a close-up look at the three-vehicle Daytona 500 pace car lineup and also includes some remarks from Kip Childress, assistant series director for the NASCAR Cup Series. Childress talks about the reasons why the series uses a pace car, the pace car driver’s responsibilities and what the pace car’s bright blinking safety lights mean, among other things.
Check out the stream below to learn more about the Chevy vehicles that helped pace this year’s season-opening NASCAR festivities at Daytona International Speedway.
