Speedvision GT driver Scotty B. White and his NayKid Racing team are rolling out the red carpet for Corvette fans at Road Atlanta during the Petit Le Mans weekend, Sept 27-30. The Corvette Fan Appreciation Station, located right next to the NayKid Racing Paddock, is a place for Corvette owners and fans to relax, enjoy complimentary lemonade, pick up hero cards, take pictures, get autographs and ask questions.
We started this concept at Texas Motor Speedway because of the extreme elements, explains White. It was an immediate success. We plan to continue this program because it gives Corvette fans a place to go, get out of the sun or rain, meet other Corvette owners and fans, and visit with us while we prepare for the race. We really enjoy meeting with Corvette owners wherever we go because they share our appreciation for the car and its history.
Scotty B. White will be joined in the Appreciation Station by DRM C500/R. builder Doug Rippie, Fikse Wheels founder Jim Fikse, and West Coast Corvettes representative Todd Wiley. The Corvette Fan Appreciation Station concept is not exclusive to NayKid Racings team members. The team also invites other Speedvision GT Series Corvette drivers at a special time to meet with the fans.
Although we are fierce competitors on the track, says White, we are unified under the Corvette Racing flag in the paddock. Other C5 drivers like Terry Lackey, J. Bob Taylor and Phil McClure visited with the fans at the station in Texas. The Vette fans loved it because it was one-stop shopping.
The Speedvision World Challenge GT race is Friday, Sept 29th at 5:15, when Scotty B. White will pilot his #97 black and screaming neon green DRM C500/R.
