As if the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro hasn’t been getting enough publicity, we just got word that the American sports car has been once again tapped to be the pace car for the Coke Zero 400 NASCAR race. The race, which will be held at the Daytona International Speedway on July 3, will also be the second time the Camaro has acted as pace car for the Coke Zero 400, having served the exact same purpose only a year ago.
As a matter of fact, the car has unofficially become the de facto pace car for a number of American races, including the two most celebrated races in US soil, the Daytona 500 (2009) and the Indianapolis 500 (2009 and 2010).
This year, the Camaro model that will serve as pace car will be a 2SS model that comes with an automatic transmission and a Red Jewel Tintcoat finish with the traditional pace car graphics attributed to the Coke Zero 400 race. And if we’re being honest, this car has been dressed up so well that we wouldn’t mind watching it on TV instead of all those stock cars.
