It was a dream of Chip Miller the founder of Corvettes at Carlisle to locate the number 3 Le Mans corvette it was lost over the years and he knew the anniversary of the race was coming and he thought being an avid corvette lover how cool it would to locate the car restore it to its once race day glory and return it to Le mans for the race. Well a few years ago Chip past away from Amyloidosis. And his son Lance took over his dads crusade to return number to Le Mans . This year at Corvettes at Carlisle they had The number 3 car right on main stage for the world to see. But for the icing on the cake they also had a racer from the great historic race there as well. John Fitch was one of the original drivers in the 1960 race. It looks like Chip Millers dream will come true after all. Thanks to Lance and the team that put it together number 3 will return...
