Since the C7 has an aluminum frame, as did the C6-Z06, I wonder how you would install a roll bar. You cannot weld the bar in, the preferred method, because of the metal mismatch. Is bolting acceptable?

It depends on the sanctioning body. I think NHRA you have to weld. GM will have, or already has, specs on how to do it. They have specs on the ZR1 / Z06 so it's certainly possible.
