4th of July Corvette Gets 100th WinJuly 9, 2020
Corvette Racing’s 100th victory in IMSA racing
After shutdown, Pratt & Miller, had just a month to prepare the new C8.R for the 4th of July race. The Corvette team is known for their tenacity and never letting anything stop them. Working at both the Michigan shop and a North Carolina simulator, the team was ready to hit the track for the first time in months on July 3, just 24 hours before Saturday night’s green flag at the Rolex Daytona 24-Hour race.
Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor Piloted, in their No. 3 Corvette C8.R, their way to a first GTLM-class finish as the Weathertech IMSA Sportscar series returned to the track after being sidelined for months by the coronavirus. The win was made that much sweeter, as they beat the defending WeatherTech Champion No. 912 Porsche 911 RSR-19 by just 1.977 seconds.
But if that was not enough, this was Corvette Racing’s 100th victory in IMSA racing; the last win for the team came 2 years ago at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach in 2018.

What Mike likes about this Corvette:
“The ’69 Sharks were great cars! The growing pains of ’68 were pretty much all gone by then. But what I liked most was a very rare, one year only option, designated N14. This was the side mounted exhaust system. It consisted of 2 long insulated mufflers surrounded by chrome finned covers and was only available in ’69. To me, this was one of the coolest options ever offered on a Corvette. Add to it the L71, 427/435hp big block (like the car featured here) and you had an almost unbeatable combination of power and style!
And it sounds MEAN!!”
Check out our great financing options.
Apex • Exit • Accelerate!!
The beautiful and very correct Fathom Green example presented here is one of those that left St. Louis with the N14 exhaust. It’s also equipped with the L71 427/435hp big block, M21 close ratio 4-spd., K66 Transistorized Ignition, tinted glass, power brakes, headlight washers and more.
Thrill rides no!!!
