PowerNation TV & PowerStop, LLC Team Up to Giveaway a Supercharged 2008 Z06 Corvette.
In 2014 PowerStop partnered with the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving to develop a better rotor and pad combination for the C7 Stingray platform, and the 2008 Z06 has become an extension of that development. It was outfitted with an extensive data logging system that has allowed the PowerStop team to analyze every aspect of the testing process. The results of this test process are a revolutionary new friction compound designed around the specific requirements of today’s high power muscle cars under the harshest of conditions.
Viewers will be able to sign up FREE to win as early as July, ahead of the episode airdates in August and September. The car will also be on display at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas inside the PowerStop booth.

PowerStop Product Manager John Niemiera commented, “After spending hundreds of hours testing on the stock C6 Z06, this car has pushed me to the limit of my skills and still had plenty of power left in the tank, the lucky sweepstakes winner is going to have a real beast of a car, the new Track Day brake system developed for this platform was designed to balance out that extra power and mechanical grip”
“When the Z06 came out, its 11-second quarter-mile capabilities and 198 mph top-speed were more than enough to take on all comers, but in an era of 707-horse Challenger Hellcats, 662-horsepower Shelby GT500s and, yes, new 650-horsepower Corvettes, it needs an infusion of forced induction to put it ahead of the pack,” said Jim Campisano, Editorial Director of PowerNation TV.
Said Mike Galley, “The C6 Z06 is still a world-class supercar, but the addition of PowerStop’s specially engineered brake kit will make it even better, plus the Hotchkis sway bars will help us improve its already incredible handling, especially at the limit on track.”
