Chevrolet celebrated the 50th birthday of its heralded Camaro model by unveiling on Thursday at Daytona the sixth generation of the car, which will compete in the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2017.
“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 2017 model features a refined shape to the upper nose and hood, the product of computational fluid dynamics analysis, as well as full- and reduced-scale wind tunnel development.
The fifth-generation Camaro has competed in the NASCAR XFINITY Series since 2013.
“Racing improves the breed and helps us design better cars for the showroom,” Kent said. “That’s why Chevrolet is on the track week after week, year after year.”
