Friday, June 29th, is the date of the 7th Annual Drive Your Corvette To Work Day, sponsored by Mid America Motorworks. In honor of Drive Your Corvette To Work Day, enthusiasts across the United States make "America’s Sports Car" their commuter car for the day. Every year, the Friday closest to June 30, Corvette’s official birthday, is chosen to observe Drive Your Corvette To Work Day.
The goal is to have as many Corvette owners as possible drive their car to work that day. Launched in 2001, Drive Your Corvette To Work Day is an annual event celebrated by thousands of Corvette owners.

"We understand why many owners consider their Corvette to be a special car and only drive it occasionally," said Mike Yager, founder and "Chief Cheerleader" of Mid America Motorworks, considered by many to be the world’s leading supplier of Corvette parts and accessories. "But we think driving your Corvette to work, at least one day a year, is an excellent way to demonstrate just how popular Corvettes are. And it is a chance for Corvette owners to meet new Corvette owners."
Corvette owners who observe Drive Your Corvette To Work Day are encouraged to send high resolution digital pictures of their car at work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
