For enthusiasts inspired by the on-track action featuring the Corvette C7.R, the display adjacent to the start-finish line featured a variety of vehicles and parts. As can be expected, it was anchored by all things Corvette.

As the world’s greatest sports cars roared by, individuals cold take an up-close look at Corvette Racing technology via the No. 3 show car and a display featuring the LT5.5 engine that powers it. Interestingly, the race car and Corvette Z06 were developed alongside one another, and share similar traits. The result is that enthusiasts are in many ways a part of Team Chevy.

Also in the display was a bright yellow Corvette ZR1 which drew large crowds, while for the most competitive folks, the opportunity exists to test their racing mettle with a simulator featuring a virtual version of Corvette Racing.

Other Chevrolet vehicles on hand in the prominent display included 2019 models of the Equinox, Blazer and Traverse, a 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss and 2019 Colorado (each with the Z71 off-road package), and a 2019 Malibu RS.

Chevrolet Performance parts and accessories made up a major part of the display, too. A Conect & Cruise crate powertrain system featuring a 460-horsepower, 6.2L LT1crate engine paired with a Supermatic 4L70-E four-speed automatic transmission was on hand, as were a variety of wheels for both truck and Corvette applications. Meanwhile, a display board showcased Corvette and Silverado parts on each side. Among the Corvette highlights were a 6.2L Cold Air Intake and High Wing Spoiler along with a number of dress-up accessories. The Silverado side included such new items as the 2-Inch Suspension Lift Kit and Cat-Back Exhaust Upgrade System.

A number of experts were on hand to answer questions, as was plenty of Chevrolet literature and the opportunity to sign-up for newsletters and other exclusive content.
