Corvette drivers Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia, and Mike Rockenfeller took their bright yellow America-on-wheels Chevrolet to fifth in the GTE Pro class, classified 21st overall. They didn’t win, but just surviving Le Mans is enough to warrant a big ‘ole smoke show. Nothing could make me prouder to have been born American than this picture. Upon seeing this photograph, every Fourth of July celebration I’ve ever had flashed before my eyes.
