Ray Evernham and Valvoline to Unveil “The Ghost” at 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas


Ray Evernham and Valvoline to Unveil “The Ghost” at 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas

Innovative Modified Retro Racecar Designed by Evernham Blends Advanced Technology, Racing History

Join TV host and NASCAR champion crew chief Ray Evernham as he unveils the wildest car he has ever built -- “The Ghost”. Designed and built by hand by Evernham and his team at Ray Evernham Enterprises’ Big Iron Garage in partnership with Valvoline, “The Ghost” combines his admiration for old school automotive styling and aesthetics with his knowledge and access to modern day technology and performance. The concept for this car was born out of Evernham’s passion for vintage race cars, respect for innovation and concern for safety.

Housed under a 1936 Chevrolet sedan body, this specialty-built racecar has the appearance of a retro modified that would have been raced during the 1960s, but features state-of-the-art mechanics and electronics. Evernham plans to drive the car himself, while also putting other professional drivers behind the wheel to test its limits. Initial events for the 2018 season include vintage races at Road Atlanta, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Pikes Peak and more. For a sneak peek at the build visit www.TeamValvoline.com.
