Robert Yates Sells Davey Allison 92 Daytona Car
Davey Allisons T-Bird, Dale Earnhardt's Wheaties Car -- and Rusty Wallace's car sell at the 2010 Barrett Jackson Classic Car Auction. Statistically, 1992 was Davey Allison's best season in Winston Cup racing. And yet, it was also a very painful and heartwrenching season. Davey started sixth in the 1992 Daytona 500 but was probably not quite as fast as the Junior Johnson teammates of Bill Elliott and Sterling Marlin. But the race would change dramatically on lap 92 when Elliott, Marlin, and Ernie Irvan triggered a multi-car crash at the front of the pack. Fourteen cars were eliminated, but Allison—and eventual runner-up Morgan Shepherd—somehow made it through the mess. He would lead 127 laps to join his father as a Daytona 500 winner.

First 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray Sold To Rick Hendrick At Barrett-Jackson
Congratulations to Mr. Rick Hendrick for winning the first C7 Corvette Stingray, Vin #0001, at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona tonight. Details about the new 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray: (Copied from AOL Autos) Inside a ramshackle industrial facility in northern Detroit, Chevrolet unveiled the 2014 Corvette C7, the model's first overhaul in nine years. It contains a next-generation V8 engine, a small-block LT1 that combines several advanced technologies into one package and takes drivers from 0 to 60 in less than four seconds. But for Corvette, this isn't about statistics. "It's more than just a sports car," said GM design chief Ed Welburn. "It's an emotion. It's a passion. It is a vehicle that is larger than life." For those reasons, it was perhaps the perfect vehicle to headline the first night of the North American International Auto Show. After years of economic doldrums brought on by the Great Recession, the auto industry needed a larger-than-life icon to help celebrate more than 15 million units sold in 2012. Hundreds of sports-car enthusiasts hooted and hollered Sunday night as Chevrolet pulled curtains back and revealed the C7 inside the Russell Industrial Center, which felt more like a nightclub than a factory. They lingered around the bright-red specimen displayed for more than an hour after the reveal. Most of the hard-core already knew some specifics about the model, like it's 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Chevrolet added a twist, announcing the C7 will carry the Stingray name, a nod to the Corvette's early heritage throughout the 1960s. "It matches the concept they had a couple of years ago, and they really hit the nail on the head," said John Dunlap, a 27-year-old Corvette owner and enthusiast who scored a ticket to Sunday's unveiling through the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky. He drove his 2002 C5 from Minerva, Ohio to Detroit for the unveiling. Years ago, he was tempted to upgrade to the C6, but was instead glad he waited for the oft-delayed C7 model. "They needed to make it sexier and relate it to its heritage," Dunlap said. "And the interior is going to blow our minds. Hopefully, that's really up there, the quality of the materials. I'm a touchy-feeling kind of guy, and the interior, before, was something that everyone knocked on." Critics had panned the no-frills interior on the C6 model. But that was the least of Corvette's problems in recent years. There were few brands that symbolized the auto industry's crisis better. As General Motors teetered on the brink of bankruptcy, the sports-car market was ravaged by the economy, losing approximately 41 percent of its sales from its pre-recession high. Sales of the Corvette, which debuted in 1953, slumped to their lowest numbers in nearly a half-century, falling to 13,164 in 2011. Worse yet perhaps, the Corvette's more muscular sibling, the Chevy Camaro, gained a ton of attention after a mid-decade redesign that drove sales as high as 88,248 in 2011. But even as General Motors discarded sacred brands and models in the midst of its government-backed rescue, the Corvette endured. "The soul of our company is indeed in Corvette," Mark Reuss, GM's chairman of North America, said Sunday. "Since 1953, through good times and bad for this company, there was always the Corvette, demonstrating what it means to win." If there are nods to the Corvette's heritage in the new design, there are also subtle nods to the present competition. Gone are the car's trademark rounded tail lights, replaced with more boxy lights that resemble those found on the Camaro. That's not an update that sits well with many long-time Corvette owners. "Many individuals are concerned about the rear square lights," said Tommy DeLuca, who owns a 2005 Corvette. "My concern would be how to differentiate the tail lights from other GM cars. The tail lights should be different so that anyone looking at the car will know it is a Corvette." The C7 is one of 13 new Chevrolet products that will hit U.S. show rooms this year. Like many of the others, it arrives lighter than past models. Engineers said Sunday they had trimmed 90 pounds from the car, and used carbon fiber on even the base trim level. Pricing was not announced Sunday night, but it is expected the base model of the C7 will cost more than the $49,600 of the base C6 predecessor. Fuel economy is expected to reach 18 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. Combine the overhauled interior with the substantial exterior changes with the structural differences and drop in weight, and it's a dramatically different car. "It's a bigger departure from the C6 to the C7 than I think it was from the C5 to the C6," Dunlap said. "It has a more exotic look, a more sexy look. They're trying to get a lot of young people involved, and I think this is the car to do it."





Always In Our Hearts - A Tribute to Ten
October 24, 2004. This will be a day that no NASCAR fan will ever forget, yet never want to remember. Nine members of Hendrick Motorsports and the pilot for Tony Stewart all lost their lives in a plane crash en route to the Subway 500 at Martinsville that same day. It would be a very diffucult week for the NASCAR community, but Jimmie Johnson helped the healing process with an emotional win at Atlanta that next week. I will pay tribute to these lost loved ones to the tune of Afterglow by INXS. "Always In Our Hearts," a saying that was on the HMS racecars for the rest of that year and a saying that still holds true to me today. In loving memory of John Hendrick, Kimberly Hendrick, Jennifer Hendrick, Ricky Hendrick, Jeff Turner, Randy Dorton, Scott Lathram, Dick Tracy, Liz Morrison, and Joe Jackson.





1968 Corvette L-88 #12 Owens/Corning FIA/SCCA Racecar Sold To Rick Hendrick At Barrett-Jackson
Congratulations to Mr. Rick Hendrick for winning a phenominal piece of Corvette history tonight at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mr. Hendrick also went on to win Vin #0001 of the new 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray. Details and info about the '68 L-88 Owens/Corning #12 Corvette Racecar: (Copied from RM Auctions) Est. 685 bhp at 6,600 rpm, 427 CID L-88 big block Chevrolet racing engine, Muncie M-22 "Rockcrusher" transmission, front and rear independent suspension, coil springs to the front, and transverse leaf to the rear with Koni adjustable shock absorbers. Wheelbase: 98" • Generally considered the most victorious racing Corvette in history • Ex-Tony DeLorenzo and Jerry Thompson • Multiple SCCA championships; NCRS American Heritage Award • Fresh Kevin MacKay restoration • Extensive documentation America's Star-Spangled Sports Car For nearly four decades, the Chevrolet Corvette was the only sports car designed and built in North America. Capable of taking on and beating the world's best production sports and GT cars on the international circuit, Corvettes roared on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, flew on the high banks at Daytona, and blazed their lights around Sebring. On amateur SCCA circuits, Corvettes won fourteen "A Production" and fifteen "B Production" divisional titles in the 1962 to 1976 period. SCCA Nationals saw Corvettes capturing no less than 25 Run-Off Championships in A, B, and C Production in the same time frame. A Russian born ex-race driver and engineer hired by GM's Ed Cole gets the credit for the almost unbelievable transformation that took place from 1954 to 1957. The '53 Corvette was thoroughly underpowered, but the 1957 V-8 version won its class at Sebring, as well as the Sports Car Club of America "B" Production National Championship. In fact, in 1960, a Cunningham Corvette placed First in GT at Le Mans! "Corvette -- The Real McCoy" trumpeted the full page ads in the national media and that really said it best. The classic, solid axle Corvette gave way to the beautiful Sting Ray coupes and convertibles with independent suspension in 1963, and four-wheel disc brakes became standard in 1965. In 1968, it emerged as the dramatic Stingray (one word) with a "Coke bottle" shape, inspired by the '67 Mako Shark Show Car. Corvette Big Block Bruisers: "The Fast and the Few" Only a few Corvettes can legitimately claim membership in this exclusive club. John Greenwood's "Stars & Stripes" L-88 cars of the 1968--1973 period, backed by BFG and often racing on that company's new radial tires, certainly qualify for this short list. Dave Heinz's two Corvettes, liveried as "Rebel Flag" cars in a competitive response to the BFG effort and driven by Heinz and Bob Johnson, often beat the Greenwood team due to better race strategy and superior reliability. However, the very best racing results were scored by the two Tony DeLorenzo/Jerry Thompson Corvette team cars, which contested both the SCCA Divisional and National circuit, as well as all of the important U.S.A.-based FIA distance races. One of these, 002/68, their 1968 Owens/Corning Fiberglas L-88 car, is the very same that we are privileged to present here. Impressive period results include the 1969 and 1972 SCCA National "A" Production Championships, 1968 and 1970 SCCA National "A" Production Runner-Up, Second Place in GT at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring, and the 1969 and 1970 GT Class wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona. In the 1970 event, it finished Sixth Overall, behind two Porsche 917s, a Ferrari 512, and two Ferrari 312s, but ahead of a Ferrari 250 LM in Seventh and a Ford GT40 in Eighth. This car, together with its team car, won 22 of 22 SCCA/FIA National Events during 1969--1971, with this car winning 11 of these! Observers will note that these two team cars changed numbers for each race entered, in order to give the perception of a large team effort. This car was always the highest numbered car and driven most often by Jerry Thompson.
