Wilmington, NC- The 61st running of the Daytona 500 is quickly approaching just days away! One of the most sought out sporting events of all time,  the Daytona 500 will be held on February 17th.

In a unique start this year’s Daytona 500 will feature the 2019 Silverado 1500 as the official pace vehicle. This is the first time a pick-up truck will serve as the pace car in the Daytona 500, with two-time Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the driver’s seat.

Honored to pace the Daytona 500 in the Silverado 1500, Earnhardt Jr. said (as cited by Motor Authority, 2018) “Away from the track I’ve driven Chevy trucks all my life, and I’m excited to have this unique experience of pacing the Daytona 500 with the Silverado.” Earnhardt Jr. is a member of the Hendrick Motorsports family, and retired from racing in 2017. Earnhardt Jr. is now a race analyst for the NBCUniversal, and owner of JR Motorsports.

Under the Hood– Although the Silverado 1500 lacks the appearance of a traditional race car, under the hood it features a 6.2-litre V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, packing a punch close in line with the Chevy Camaro.

Our very own Jeff Gordon will be commentating the Daytona 500 on Fox Sports. Gordon has won three Daytona 500’s 1997, 1999 and 2005. In 2015 Gordon’s final year of racing he won the pole at the Daytona 500, then in 2017 Gordon was the honorary pace car driver for the Daytona 500.

Although this is the first time for a pick-up truck to pace the Daytona 500, Chevrolet has been in the spotlight before pacing the “Great American Race” a total of 12 times; 5 of those times were with a Corvette, and 7 with a Camaro.

Prepare Your Car For Your Road Trip

The least you need on your road trip is for something to go wrong with your car.

So here is the check list that make your drive is safe:

Road trip checklist

  • Check the car owner’s manual
  • Get any major repairs done
  • Get any scheduled maintenance done
  • Clean out your car: interior and exterior
  • Check under the hood
  • Check oil
  • Check engine coolant
  • Check car battery
  • Check filters: air, oil and transmission fluid (and change it if needed)
  • Check fuel pump
  • Fill the gas tank
  • Make sure you have some form of a map (GPS)

Walk-around inspection for a long trip

The simplest and cheapest way to check car for a long trip is the walk-around inspection. You should do it first by yourself:

  • Check wiper blades for cracks or separation from the blade retainer. Check out all the lights in the car the turn signals, headlights and brake lights.
  • Checking tires is important and you should check the tire pressure when the tires are cold. You can find the recommended tire pressure in the owners manual. Over-inflated tires would cause the tire to wear prematurely in the center. Driving in wet conditions (rain, snow etc) an over-inflated tire gives you less tread contact on the road, and under-inflation will result in bad handling and increased fuel consumption.

Under the hood inspection for a long trip

When you’re done with walk-around inspection of car, inspect under hood:

  • Check fluid levels by lifting the hood and check: engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, radiator coolant, and windshield washer fluid levels – and top off if necessary.
  • Inspect hoses for leaks, brittleness, loose clamps, and softness in the elbow areas.
  • Check belts for alignment, glazing, adjustment, and tearing and cracking – and replace if necessary.

Other items to check under the hood

  • Lights and mirrors
  • Windshield wipers
  • Tires
  • Steering, suspension and drive-train components
  • Spare tire, wheel wrench and the jack
  • Basic emergency kit

What’s the difference between a lease and a purchase?

We’ve found that a lot of people are skeptical or just don’t know too much about leasing a new vehicle. Of course, leasing isn’t for everybody, but it is something that could be beneficial to some.

Whether you lease or finance a vehicle, you will be making payments. In a lease, you only pay for a portion of the vehicle (plus taxes & fees), whereas, in a purchase, you are making payments for the entire price of the vehicle. At the end of the lease, you don’t have to worry about depreciation, negative equity, or trying to trade or sell your vehicle… You just give it back! And then you can just pick out a new vehicle.

Other advantages of leasing are:

  • You can select the lease term and mileage that meets your needs.
  • Boost your credit score.
  • Lower cost of ownership.
  • Always driving a vehicle with the most up-to-date technology.
  • Eliminates the risk of decreased value in case you get into an accident.

If you’re still not sure whether leasing a car, truck, SUV or crossover is right for you, we invite you come by and learn more about our Chevy SmartLease programs. We’ll help you compare the benefits of leasing to those of buying so that you can make the best possible decision to fulfill your vehicle needs.  Leasing isn’t for everyone, and we understand that.  But the more you know about leasing, the more you may decide that it’s time to lease your next new Chevrolet.
