Chevrolet has enlisted NASCAR driver Danica Patrick to help deliver the first 2016 Camaro.

The special event took place at the Texas Motor Speedway where Alican “Turk” Boyacioglu was given the keys to his new 2016 Camaro SS.  Besides meeting Patrick, Boyacioglu was treated to a ride with the professional race car driver who also signed his car's glove box.

In a statement, 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 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was unveiled earlier this year and it features an evolutionary design and a new lightweight platform that enables the car to weigh up to 200+ lbs (90 kg) less than its predecessor. Three different engines will be available including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 275 bhp (205 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque, a 3.6-liter V6 with 335 bhp (250 kW) and 284 lb-ft (385 Nm) of torque and a 6.2-liter V8 with 455 bhp (339 kW) and455 lb-ft (617 Nm) of torque. 

Pricing starts at $26,695 and LT and SS buyers can look forward to picking up their cars later this month.  Convertible and turbocharged variants will follow shortly thereafter with deliveries slated to begin early next year.
