Racecar driver Danica Patrick helped the team at Huffines Chevrolet deliver the first sixth-generation Camaro to a customer from Wichita, Kan., at the Texas Motor Speedway stop of Chevrolet’s Find New Roads Trip today.

Alican “Turk” Boyacioglu had been eagerly tracking the build of his 2016 Camaro SS and could not contain his excitement when Patrick emerged from the car and handed him the keys.

“This whole experience was surreal,” Boyacioglu said. “Coming to the race and getting the VIP treatment was amazing, and I still can’t believe I get to drive the first 2016 Camaro away.”

The first wave of Camaro production models has begun shipping from General Motors’ Lansing Grand River Assembly plant and should arrive at dealerships for customer delivery by mid-November.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro offers higher levels of performance, technology and refinement starting at $26,695 for the Camaro 1LT and $37,295 for the 1SS.

Six all-new powertrain combinations are offered, including a standard 2.0L Turbo and an available, all-new 3.6L V-6 in LT models, and the 455-hp LT1 6.2L V-8 in the SS – making it the most powerful Camaro SS ever. Each engine is available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

The first vehicles delivered to customers are coupes – SS or LT models with the 3.6L V-6. The Camaro Convertible and models with the 2.0L Turbo engine will begin shipping in early 2016.
