Arrow NEWS: Chevy Camaro NASCAR looks the business

Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Chevrolet, Racing



Chevrolet has stepped up to the NASCAR Nationwide Series plate with a racer that not only isn't an Impala, it isn't bad on the eyes. The junior series to the Sprint Cup big dogs had made concessions to allow cars that look more like their production counterparts. While some disagree, the cars still have nothing to do with their production counterparts, but hey, that's NASCAR. The new rules induced Ford to hop in with a Mustang, while Dodge opted to go with a Challenger. Chevy, on the other hand, stuck with its Impala.

No more: welcome the new Camaro to the NASCAR Nationwide Series. No, it won't be that much different than its Mustang, Challenger and Camry competition underneath its blue, blue skin, but from this angle that's all right. If they could run it just like this, with no sponsor stickers to get in the way, well, we think that would be epic.

Chevrolet will begin racing the Camaro next season, while the Impala will also be replaced in the Sprint Cup series when the new Chevrolet SS NASCAR racer makes it debut at the Daytona 500 next year.Chevy Camaro NASCAR looks the business originally appeared on Autoblog on Thu, 26 Jul 2012 12:32:00 EST.

No kidding? I thought they duct taped a factory Camaro body on a dragster and called it a "Funny car".




Of course, I meant Top Fuel Funny Car.

Re: NEWS: Chevy Camaro NASCAR looks the business

I'm actually torn. I'm a NASCAR fan and a Camaro fan.

Hmm.. It is what it is with their safety rules pertaining to the greenhouse construction so what can ya really do?

It looks more akin to a Camaro than the Nationwide Mustang does though! The Challenger is the best rendering though.

More photos posted in the Lounge thread. It doesn't make it look any better I'm afraid...

Here's a few photos I took at IMS Friday. I was surprised to see the grill recessed and not flush.

Didn't notice till you pointed them out. Too funny. Why bother with rear exhaust tip stickers though when the real outlet pipes are visible on the sides?

Ford started that on their Cup cars in the 2009 or 2010 season. Monkey see, monkey do.

The back end looks like it's made out of cardboard.
What a joke.
