MCACN Triple Diamond Competition; For The Best of the Best
One of the most popular and certainly most prestigious parts of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show is our Triple Diamond Corvette display and competition, Sponsored by Corvette Central. You see, you can’t just sign up to be a Triple Diamond contender. First, you must not only compete, but achieve National Corvette Restorers Society (N.C.R.S.) Top Flight certification AND Bloomington Gold certification.
Knowing that the credibility of any award is only as good as what is behind it, we have assembled a team of experienced Judges that have literally hundreds of years of combined experience in the Corvette hobby. The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals judging team is led by Judging Chairman Bill Braun, who previously served as the Judging Chairman for Chicago's Chevy Vettefest for 30 years. Mr. Braun is an active collector who currently owns several of the country's finest restored Corvettes, and he is also the current Region V Director for N.C.R.S, a position he has held for over seven years, and he is a past Illinois. N.C.R.S. President.

As long time supporters of Bloomington Gold and N.C.R.S. events, including being an Official Sponsor for this years N.C.R.S. National event in Texas, we encourage owners to participate in all of these events. In addition to adding significant value to your car, it is also a whole lot of fun. Yes...it is a whole lot of work, which is another reason why our Triple Diamond award winners truly represent the best of the best, but it is worth it in more ways than one!
Last year we played host to our largest field ever of Corvette Central Triple Diamond contenders, and we are already off to a big start for 2017. If you are planning on getting your Corvette certified with both N.C.R.S. and Bloomington Gold this year, (or you have within the past five years), we encourage you to join us. In addition to the actual certificate, if you achieve MCACN Triple Diamond status you will also receive a beautiful personally engraved Crystal award that has your name and your cars serial number. There is no better way to have your hard work and effort acknowledged!
For our spectators, our Triple Diamond display is a definite must see. Set up in chronological order, you will see the history of the Corvette right before your eyes. Last year we had nearly 40 Corvettes from 1954-1990 from 24 states and Canada competing, and 34 competitors went home with the Triple Diamond award and certification.
