On Thursday at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, Chevrolet unveiled the 2017 Camaro it will field in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition in 2017.
“For the past 40 years, Camaro has played a key role in Chevrolet’s racing success in winning races and championships,” Chevrolet Racing Director Mark Kent said. “We look forward to further success with the new Camaro SS in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.”
According to a press release from Chevrolet, “Computational fluid dynamics analysis, as well as traditional full and reduced-scale wind-tunnel development, was used to refine the shapes of the unique upper nose and hood of the new 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series Camaro SS.”
The 2017 Camaro that will hit the track in the 2017 Xfinity Series debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February ushers in the sixth generation of the Camaro. The fifth generation, currently used in Xfinity competition, was introduced to the series in 2013 when the manufacturer shifted its nameplate for series competition from the Impala to the Camaro, simultaneous to Ford’s move from the Fusion to the Mustang.
