On Thursday, Chevrolet unveiled their new Camaro ZL1 stock car for next season. The SS, which replaced the Impala four years ago, has won 70 MENCS races for the manufacturer. Chevrolet has also run a Camaro in the Xfinity Series since 2013.

“Chevrolet, Camaro and ZL1 are all synonymous with winning, both on and off the track,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of GM Global Product Development. “We are thrilled to run Camaro in the NASCAR Cup Series next year, with the time-honored and track-tested ZL1 badge, and we’re just as excited for our drivers, teams, fans and customers.”

“Racers have long relied on Camaro to win races and championships in amateur and professional sports car and drag racing, as well as the NASCAR XFINITY Series,” added Jim Campbell, vice president, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “We look forward to racing the Camaro ZL1 in the premier Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.”

Seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson was on hand for the announcement, a driver that has raced for the bow tie since his Cup debut in 2001.

“The new Camaro ZL1 is a great-looking race car with a lot of heritage behind it, which will make it a big hit with fans,” said Johnson. “And as someone who’s enjoyed the ZL1 on the street, I’m really looking forward to getting this new race car on the track.”

Chevrolet is the most successful make in NASCAR history, winning a record 39 manufacturer titles, including 13 consecutive from 2003 to 2015. They lost their crown to Toyota in 2016 despite winning the driver's title with Johnson.

What's funny is that the nascar variant has windows that are about twice as big as the actual stock car. Guess they're not using the alpha platform or the changes are quite expensive ...but it definitely doesn't seem to ruin the look of the car as was the excuse GM gave about the very narrow door windows when the 6th gen was debuted.

At least it's very easily identifiable from the front compared to previous iterations that looked nothing like a Camaro. This was just plain depressing...

that was horrible! It looks like a challenger body with Camaro stickers on it.

Love it! I bet Ford debuts the Mustang in Cup for 2019. They can't stand to be 2nd to Chevrolet in NASCAR or on the street either!

That's hilarious, but absolutely true for me. It's rare I venture out of this section lol.

Well, until they start making ZL1 sections in each of the other areas so we can jump straight in to the relevant posts!

Love it. I've noticed a big showing of the ZL1 in NASCAR this year. From Gordon driving the silver ZL1 pace car at Daytona to other races hosting the ZL1 as the pace car. I was at Pocono this year and they had em there. I'd bet a hondo they'll be at Michigan this weekend for sure.

Oh and anything outside of ZL1 discussions is FAKE NEWS.
