Check out the new sixth-generation 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series Camaro SS.
Chevrolet showed off the updated Camaro race car last week at Daytona International Speedway. We’ll have to wait until next February to see it make its official racing debut though, at the 2017 season’s NASCAR XFINITY Series kickoff race.
“For the past 50 years, Camaro has played a key role in Chevrolet’s racing success in winning races and championships,” said Mark Kent, director, Chevrolet Racing. “We look forward to further success with the new Camaro SS in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.”
The NASCAR XFINITY series is a stock car racing series showcasing some of the world’s best drivers. It’s considered a proving ground for drivers who want to step up to NASCAR’s top level circuit.
Chevy says it used computational fluid dynamics analysis, as well as traditional full- and reduced-scale wind-tunnel development, to refine the shapes of the upper nose and hood of the car.
“Racing improves the breed and helps us design better cars for the showroom,” said Kent. “That’s why Chevrolet is on the track week after week, year after year.”
The fifth-generation Camaro started racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series back in 2013. Chevrolet drivers have captured five NASCAR XFINITY Series checkered flags so far in 2016. In all, Chevy’s brought home 408 victories since 1982.
