Corvette racecar driver Danny Kellermeyer accelerated through another fast start this season.
The effervescent Kellermeyer hopes to win his fourth straight Touring 1 Class Championship at Michigan’s Waterford Hills Road Racing (WHRRI). He’s already competed well in six races.
The T1 class is the ultimate in production-style racecars and Danny’s Matick Chevrolet/Corvette Central sponsored Corvettes battles against Porsches, BMWs, Vipers and other Corvettes.
“One of our racecars, the C5R Corvette, was built for Speedvision World Challenge,” says Danny. “It was one of 42 Chevrolet Corvettes that GM structured for race teams to race and debut the new Z06. In fact ours is #002.”
Danny, the owner of DJ Race Enterprise, is winning off the track as well. His Corvettes have been displayed recently at several metro Detroit Corvette events.
Kellermeyer talked about Detroit Grand Prix races during the Matick Chevy Corvette Caravan Experience
Two of the DJ Racing Corvettes were showcased at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Matick Chevy Corvette Caravan Experience on May 31. Danny was the event’s breakfast speaker in Matick Chevy’s new “largest in Michigan indoor show” and he provided the crowd of more than 150 Corvette enthusiasts an overview of the Detroit Grand Prix races.
“Our Corvette family is always exciting to see and I was privileged to discuss racing before the caravan left for Belle Isle” says Danny. “More than 70 Corvettes were in the caravan and it was impressive to see them all come into the Corvette Corral on Belle Isle in the middle of the Detroit River for the big race event."
Danny’s Corvette racecars also were part of the Corvettes in the “D” on June 14. The second annual event, hosted by the Michigan/Indiana/East Kentucky Captain of the 2014 National Corvette Caravan and Corvette lover Larry Courtney, drew more than 300 Corvettes as their owners and friends enjoyed a fantastic day along the Detroit River outside the GM World Headquarters. Racing was the theme as GM displayed the C7R racecar along with the newly announced 2015 Atlantic and Pacific versions of the C7.
“While the racecars were the center of attention, our C5R Pedal Corvette was the hit of the displays. It will be given away at the Matick Chevy Open House on Sept. 20," says Danny. “The car was first shown at the Matick Chevy Caravan breakfast, and then again at Corvettes in the D. Corvette owners registered at both locations and are excited about winning the pedal Corvette.”
Those attending any DJ Racing team events can register free of charge to win. “So be sure to stop by, say hi to our team and take your photo with the pedal car or you in our Corvette racecars,” he adds.
“Having sponsors like Matick Chevy in metro Detroit and Corvette Central helps me attend these events,” says Danny. “Corvettes and performance are in Matick Chevrolet’s DNA. It’s not being the brand's top 1 percent for sales volume or because of its 100-car showroom, high-volume Corvettes or massive new collision shop, it’s the Matick team of sales, service and parts employees they have put in place to serve their customers.”
