The fastest competitor out of the six regional pro heat winners will claim the ultimate title of "Rev It Up 2007 National Champion" - and receive a new 2007 Chevrolet Corvette.

Reaction and Traction Competition - New for 2007, this is a true test of the driver's acceleration and braking skills behind the wheel of a 303-horsepower Impala SS or 395-horsepower TrailBlazer SS. Without breaking traction, drivers will have to accelerate quickly and stop just as fast. Drivers will be able to take on their friends, and prizes will be given to those who prove their skills. Enduro Kart Challenge - Professional drivers around the world, competing in every type of motor competition from NASCAR to Formula One to sports car racing, have gotten their start in karts.

In this activity, participants ride in the passenger seat of a 505-horsepower Corvette Z06 piloted by an experienced racer, demonstrating how to attack a course to set the best possible time.

Camaro Concept Rev It Up: Beyond the Wheel In 2007 Rev It Up also introduces a full array of brand new non-driving experiences, providing automotive fun for competitors taking a break from driving instruction or competitions, and plenty to do for those whose focus isn't on the track but on the car culture lifestyle. A sample of the activities and experiences: Chevy Nation Pavilion - New for 2007 is a comprehensive display of the latest cars, trucks and performance parts, as well as a sneak peak into future technology and products - including the Camaro Concept. The Chevy Nation Pavilion will provide a place for participants to experience Chevy up close. Chevy Racing Experience - Also new for 2007 is a Chevrolet display of motorsports heritage and technology with a showcase of its latest racing machines and well-known display vehicles, including those from SEMA.

Rev It Up Partner Paddock - Rev It Up participants can shop for apparel, racing gear, and browse performance parts and accessories. Opportunities to Meet Pro Drivers - Participants will be able to chat with and get autographs from popular NASCAR, ALMS and SCCA Chevy Racing drivers.
