2017 Chevy Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition Visits Indy for Brickyard 400
Yesterday’s race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway proved to be another letdown for the paltry few NASCAR fans in attendance.
There was reason for excitement going into the event, which promised to be Tony Stewart’s final Brickyard 400 and Jeff Gordon’s (uh, second consecutive) final Brickyard 400. In the end, though, neither of the two fan favorite Indiana drivers could do much to compete with Kyle Busch, who led 149 of 170 laps en route to a particularly uninspiring victory.
But while most of those in attendance were left disappointed by the cars speeding single-file around the track, they did at least get to enjoy the ones parked over at the Chevy Display. For many, including myself, it was the first time we got up close and personal with the new 2017 Chevy Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition.

Car Care: How often should I service my vehicle?
At last year’s Brickyard, Chevrolet brought along the then-new, sixth-generation 2016 Camaro. This year, the bowtie brand decided to show off its special 50th Anniversary Edition Camaro, which it’s touting as “the most epic Camaro yet.”
It certainly looks the part, with a Nightfall Grey paint job highlighted by orange and satin chrome accents, along with unique “FIFTY” badging throughout the exterior and interior.

Chevy has yet to put a price on the 50th Anniversary Camaro, but the automaker says that the commemorative vehicle will be going on sale sometime this summer.
If you missed its appearance at the Brickyard, you can see the anniversary Camaro when it makes another public appearance at next month’s Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit.
At Woodward, the 2017 Chevy Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition should be the highlight of a relatively straightforward parade—just like it was at yesterday’s Brickyard 400.

Patrick also enjoys old movies, shopping at thrift stores, going to ballgames, writing about those things, and watching Law & Order reruns. He just watches the original series, though, none of the spin-offs. And also only the ones they made before Jerry Orbach died. Season five was really the peak, in his opinion.
