For sale right now on AutoTrader.com is a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that once belonged to NASCAR championship winner Ron Hornaday, Jr.

Hornaday is a four-time winner of the NASCAR truck racing series (formerly the Craftsman Truck Series, now called the Camping World Truck Series), making him the most successful driver in NASCAR truck history.

Hornaday's current race vehicle is a 650-700 horsepower Chevrolet Silverado prepared by Joe Denette Motorsports.

According to Master Cars, Chevrolet gave this Corvette to Hornaday as a thank you for winning the series in a Chevy in 2007. The dealer says the original paperwork proves the car was delivered to the champion driver.

Even when compared to the NASCAR truck, the Corvette Z06 is no slouch. The car's 7.0-liter V8 engine puts out 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. That's enough for a 0-60 mph time in less than 4 seconds.

Power was obviously the main focus for Chevrolet when it built this car; the Corvette only gets 15 mpg in the city and 24 on the highway. That's not that great compared to other road cars, but compared to the NASCAR truck's roughly 5 mpg, it's practically a fuel-sipper.

Since the 'Vette was a gift, Chevrolet loaded the car up with a lot of optional extras. The car comes with a heated seat, polished wheels, a premium stereo system and navigation.

In spite of all that power and all the optional extras, Hornaday didn't really drive the car all that much. The car still has fewer than 2,000 miles on the odometer.

The car is painted in Velocity Yellow, possibly to match Hornaday's blue and yellow Kevin Harvick Incorporated truck from his championship winning 2007 season.

The dealer is asking just short of $60,000 for the racing driver's car, which is pretty close to the estimated Kelley Blue Book asking price.

While there is no shortage of hot Corvettes on the road right now, there will be very few that have mileage this low, and none with this car's history. Hornaday fans will love the Corvette's roaring V8 soundtrack, so this car seems like a natural fit for any NASCAR lover's garage.
