VIDEO from Medialink: 50 Years of Corvette Racing.

Corvette is celebrating 50 years of racing in 2006 -- a milestone highlighted by their winning their class for the fifth time in six years at Le Mans earlier this year.

It's been fifty years since Corvette's legendary engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov prodded Chevrolet to make the once-stylish roadster into a tough sports car -- one that could beat famous European brands in grueling endurance races like Sebring and Le Mans. His argument, "Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday," worked famously. Chevrolet still sells Corvettes, and Corvettes still win races.
