Feb 12 | Gerhart wins seventh Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 victory

SHARE

Bobby Gerhart captured his seventh career Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 victory on the new asphalt of historic Daytona International Speedway’s 2.5-mile tri-oval on Saturday afternoon.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Bobby Gerhart captured his seventh career Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 victory on the new asphalt of historic Daytona International Speedway’s 2.5-mile tri-oval on Saturday afternoon.

Gerhart, who now has back-to-back victories for the third time in the season-opener of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards’, led the last 61 laps of the 80-lap race. The No. 5 Lucas Oil Slick Mist Chevrolet team took a risk and made their sole pit stop on Lap 5 for fuel only.

“You have to put yourself in position to (win)," Gerhart said. "You have to take a gamble now and then. We knew we didn’t have the fastest car, but we had a good car. Had it gone green until the end, we wouldn’t have made it.

"It'll probably take a long time, maybe until even after I'm done racing until the meaning of what we've done sets in. It's a storybook deal. I'm so geared up to compete here and I have the privilege to do that. I'm already thinking about what we're going to do next year. It's a tremendous privilege for any race driver to come here and have the opportunity to compete at this level. I feel so lucky to do that right now."
 
Following the experienced Gerhart to the checkered flag was Chris Buescher, making his debut at the “World Center of Racing.”

“That was a lot of fun coming to Daytona for the first time,” said Buescher, driver of the No. 17 Roulo Brothers Racing Ford. “Especially to follow a guy like Bobby Gerhart around; he’s the best when it comes to these races and you learn so much from him. Just a great first speedway experience.”

Frank Kimmel, who was fastest in the final practice and was looking for his first win in 20 starts at DIS, finished 10th.

Daytona International Speedway and Chevrolet officials announced that the Chevrolet Camaro SS will serve as the official pace car for the 53rd running of the Daytona 500

Pace Car Unveil

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Daytona International Speedway and Chevrolet officials announced today that the Chevrolet Camaro SS will serve as the official pace car for the 53rd running of the Daytona 500 – the second time in the past three years that the iconic automobile has paced the field for the “The Great American Race.”

In addition, behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Camaro as the Honorary Pace Car driver will be Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year Brad Paisley, who is also performing the Daytona 500 Pre-Race show.

The Chevrolet Camaro has previously paced the field for the Daytona 500 – NASCAR’s signature event – three times beginning back in 1968 and 1969 and most recently in 2009.
 
“Chevrolet has been a great partner and supporter of Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona 500 for close to 40 years,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the most recognizable cars in the world and is a perfect fit to lead the stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series to the green flag in the Daytona 500.”

“Chevrolet is proud to serve as the “Official Pace Car” of the 53rd running of the Daytona 500” said Jeff Chew, Chevy Racing Marketing Manager. “The 400 hp 2011 Camaro SS was selected to pace the field to the green flag to showcase Camaro’s performance and styling on one of the most famous race tracks in the world.”  

The 2011 Daytona 500 Camaro SS pace cars are adorned in a vibrant “Red Hot” color accented with “Platinum Ice” stripes. GM Accessory 21” wheels and tires are installed along with body colored ground effects, heritage grill, and tall rear spoiler. The cars also have fully integrated safety strobe systems with custom light bars and amber taillights.

In the Daytona 500 Pre-Race Show, Paisley, who has 18 No. 1 hits, three Grammy awards, 14 CMA Awards and 13 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, will perform three songs prior to the start of the Daytona 500.
Paisley’s innovative and entertaining H20 World Tour played to over 879,000 fans in 2010 and placed #1 country tour for attendance by Pollstar.  Paisley’s next album, This Is Country Music will be in-stores this spring.
