Bloomington Gold Corvettes USA, “The Granddaddy of Corvette Shows,” will make its inaugural appearance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from June 25-27, 2015. The longest-running all-Corvette show will include a display of Corvettes with many of the world’s most collectable Corvettes available for judging.
“Chevrolet Corvettes have served as the official Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500 a record 12 times, so it’s a perfect fit for the nation’s premiere all-Corvette show to be showcased at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president. “We’re looking forward to hosting Bloomington Gold Corvettes USA along with thousands of Corvette and automobile enthusiasts for a great three days at ‘The Racing Capital of the World.'”
Bloomington Gold began operations by hosting the Bloomington Corvette Corral in 1973 at the McLean County Fairgrounds in Bloomington, Illinois. The show became a hit when 1,500 people attended the event that featured 112 Corvettes. The event has grown substantially through the years, with 5,000 Corvettes expected to appear at the Bloomington Gold show at IMS.
“Corvette owners will be able to experience the thrill of driving laps on the oval, high speed rides on the road course and more thrilling events than any other car show has to offer,” said Guy Larsen, Bloomington Gold president. “By renting the entire facility, all aspects of this iconic venue will be offered to show attendees including the race garages, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum and Brickyard Crossing Golf Course.”
