A New Nameplate, Race Car for Chevrolet in 2013

Nascar

Chevrolet will unveil next year a new nameplate that will be raced in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup.

Chevrolet is going to introduce a new nameplate in the American market next year. The same name will also decorate Chevrolet's car at the Sprint Cup, the NASCAR elite championship. The racing car will make its debut in next year's Daytona 500 and later in the year the model bearing that name will be launched in the American market. "We are keeping the wraps on the new car for now and will continue to prepare for next season by testing camouflaged vehicles."

"We know that Chevrolet fans are eager to see the new racecar and we hope that the prospect of being able to own one just like it will make the wait a little more bearable," said Jim Campbell, vice president of Chevrolet Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. The current Chevrolet racecar is the Impala and its latest success came last Sunday when Tony Stewart won the NASCAR race in Las Vegas. Since 2007, the Impala has dominated the series, taking the checkered flag 79 times. However, the production road car is simply outdated when compared to the competition (even Chevy's own Malibu).

Chevrolet drivers have also won five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Manufacturers' Championships, and Jimmie Johnson (4) and Tony Stewart (1) have collected five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver's championships in the Impala. "The Impala has been a critical part of Chevrolet's success in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and we are confident the new racecar will allow us to remain the most successful name in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history," Campbell concluded.
