DETROIT, Jan. 27, 2011: Chevrolet will be more visible both on and off the track this year, as an official promotional partner of GRAND-AM Road Racing for the first time.

Chevrolet will supply the official pace vehicle and have a major at-track presence for the races at Elkhart Lake (Wisc.) in June and Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International in August.

"Being a partner with GRAND-AM is an exciting opportunity for Chevrolet," said Jeff Chew, marketing manager, Chevy Racing. "In addition to being the pace vehicle later this summer, Chevrolet also will bring its Team Chevy Racing Display trackside for the fans to enjoy. Chevy's display showcases its full lineup of award-winning cars and trucks."

Additionally, Chevrolet is offering a contingency program to support its teams competing in the Daytona Prototype and GT classes of the Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16, and the Grand Sport class of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

Chevrolet has three teams competing in both DP and GT, and five teams in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge GS class. The season opens this weekend at Daytona International Speedway with the 49th Rolex 24 At Daytona.
