You may recall in January that NASCAR team owner and Chevrolet dealer Rick Hendrick was the winning bidder on the first retail 2019 ZR1 at Barrett-Jackson. The purchase was for $925,000 with the proceeds benefiting veterans charity Building for America’s Bravest through the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
On Wednesday, March 14 Hendrick visited the GM Corvette Assembly Plant to see his ZR1 ceremoniously roll off the line (which was built the first day of ZR1 production, Monday, March 5) and start the car. Afterwards, he visited the Museum for lunch and photo ops before taking some touring laps in a Stingray at the NCM Motorsports Park with other members of the HMS team, as well as a few friends from Nationwide Insurance.
Hendrick’s ZR1 is a black on black convertible with Jet Black and Adrenaline Red interior, Suede-Wrapped Upper Interior Trim Package, 3ZR Package, Competition Sport Bucket Seats, Red Seat Belts, Black Badge Package, 8-Speed Automatic Transmission with Paddle Shift, Carbon Fiber Hood, Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Package, ZR1 Carbon Flash-Painted Aluminum Wheels with Red Calipers, Track Performance Package, Performance Ride and Handling Suspension, NPP Performance Exhaust System, Performance Data & Video Recorder and more.
Thank you to Mr. Hendrick for his support of Corvette, the National Corvette Museum and NCM Motorsports Park!
