Team Cobalt : Updated

Recommended Posts

WARREN, Mich. (January 18, 2006) -- Coming off a successful debut racing season where the Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged entries challenged for the Manufacturer's Championship, Team Cobalt returns for its sophomore season with a trophy firmly in sight as the 2006 Grand-Am Cup season opens at Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 27.

"The Cobalt SS Supercharged won three races and a pole positon in 2005, and we finished third in Manufacturer's Championship points," said Ken Wasmer, small car program engineering manager for the GM Performance Division, which provides engineering technical support for the Cobalt entrants.

"We're pleased with our success, but for 2006, our sights are set much higher. This year we want to win the Manufacturer's Championship," Wasmer added.

The 200-mile Grand-Am Cup race on Daytona's 3.56-mile combination infield road course and high-banked oval layout, will take the green flag on Friday, Jan. 27 at 2:15 p.m. EST. The Cobalts will compete in the newly re-named Sport Tuner class.

It's great Chevy is involved in racing...any racing. It creates some excitement about the brand.....it's not just about conveyances from A-B...it's about passion, fun.

Chevy did the Cobalt right....giving it instant street cred via a kickass racing program. I think it's pretty safe to say that the Cobalt name isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

That's what I'm hoping...
