Chevrolet News:Chevrolet Sends The Camaro Into The NASCAR Nationwide Series

Ford and Dodge have stepped up to the plate for the NASCAR Nationwide Series, producing the Mustang and Challenger race cars. Now, its Chevrolet's turn at the plate.

Today, the bowtie showed off the new 2013 Camaro NASCAR Nationwide Series racecar. The Camaro race car does closely resembles the actual production mode - though it's still a long way from identical. Underneath, the Camaro isn't that much different from the Ford, Dodge and Toyota.

“Chevrolet is proud to bring the Camaro to the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2013. The Camaro Nationwide race car incorporates many of the distinctive styling elements of the production Camaro, including the unique power-bulge hood and deep recessed grille. In addition, the design incorporates the distinctive halo light rings and dual-port grille appearances, and the gold bowtie,” said Jim Campbell, vice president, Chevrolet Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.

The Camaro will make its debut at next year's Daytona race. For now, Chevrolet says the vehicle will be going through the wind tunnel and on-track testing to get it ready.

I wish they'd put the Camaro, mustang and Challenger into the Cup as well.

Yeah, yeah, I know, Fusion, Charger, Chevy SS, whatever. as great as all three of those cars are, I've been sick of sedans ever since the old Ford Tortoise was made into a Nascar in like '98.

I really don't care for the Camaro, Challanger and Mustang as it is as they really do not trasfer to NASCAR well. Lets face it the Mustang and Challanger only look like what they are if they are coming at you. The Camaro looks good in the nose but the rest of the car does not transfer well.

The reallity is that NASCAR is about the show and controling cost and the days of the body in white are long gone. Hell they are long gone from most racing accept for some road race series.

The Carmaro will be a better marketing tool vs the old Impala but I really do not see alot of value in increased sales here. It is still more a Chevy vs Ford vs what ever Chrysler has left. As for Toyota their fans tend to be more driver related than brand.

As for sedans vs coupes does it really matter?

I do hope we see the Super Sport on the touring cars in Texas when they run next year. All they need to do is change some badges and some stickers.

Agree with you completely, sir!

I watch too but then again you and I love road racing when the average race fan has little taste for it. With NASCAR it is the show where you see the car for ever second on the track and never miss a thing. It also is about the chance of anyone of 20 cars and a few long shots winning any week.

To be honest I was able to hang with the Camaro teams in the Continental Grand Am series. To me it was just like the old days of Trans Am. But even in this and the Pirelli Series the cars are far from stock in many respects too. The Pirelli cars have many changes and the Grand Am cars have restrictors on them and are not even as fast as the street cars. THe truth is the day of head to head racing is over as the MFG just got too crazy in their attempts of win at any cost. They complain now about not looking stock in stock cars but they were the ones who screwed it up.

It comes down to the point that is the same team wins week after week people would stop watching. [unless his name was Earnhardt]. Also if the same make were to win week after week many MFG would pull out. It is sad but the old days of wide open racing are over and it is now just for entertainment.

To me there is nothing better than SCCA or the old IMSA series at Mid Ohio but that is just me and I am in the minority.

Nascar exists for the Good Ol Boys to drink lots of cheap piss budwiezer beer and fondle their cousin.

Road Racing is way better. We need a true race track like Germany has so we can really test the actual cars and drivers.

Here is the bottom line. NASCAR is entertainment for the average American. No matter what the die hard race fan thinks it is a form of racing that keeps the average person interested from the Red Neck drunk , house wife and Wall Street broker. It appeals to most and many.

Road racing is for the true enthusiast but even it is tainted anymore as they too need to tinker with it to keep things close or it becomes another F! race where technology is the race.

Like NASCAR or not it is good for racing in general as with out it racing would not be seen as a accepted sport.

We don't need tracks like Germany as we have many natural race tracks here that are world class. The key is to get off the damn street tracks that are boring. But there again it is a necessary evil as that is where the money is for the rich fat old drunks in the hospitality areas. The difference is the Good old boy at least knows who is in the race where the corperate invite is there for the drinks and has no clue who is even in the race but he keeps his shirt on.

My problem is, Bubba might see this homemade looking thing and equate it with a real Camaro. And THAT would be a travesty, as the real thing is eleventy billion lightyears better looking.

Don't underestimate Bubba as he has learned how to get over 100,000 people to a race when you all city folk can only get 30,000 to a road race. He also is on national TV live when the road race is one ESPN Ocho at odd times.

Like it or not the technology compitition in racing has prevented stock racing and will keep it away. While stock bodied cars might be a grand Idea it's time was over by 1970. The MFG and Bubba advanced aerodynamics to the point of no return just to win on Sunday. I loved the old Escort Showroom stock challange races but so few people cared and the companies abused the rules too. The Nelson Ledges race was notorious for having a year newer car get into the race from GM or Porsche. In the end they all were cheating and it killed a series no one really watched.

I have road raced and driven stock cars and I love them both. If I had to choose which one to drive in full time it would be road racing. but It is to me like golf. great to do but boring to watch on TV.

If anyone wants the Trans AM series you already have it in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series. They have been running the Camaro and Mustang there for several years. The cars are based on production cars and stock engines. They do have to restrict the intakes to keep the races close on the Camaros and Mustangs but they put on a great race. In many ways these are one of the few stock type series left. THey are much more stock than the Austrailian touring cars. True racing fans would love it but the general public finds it a bore on TV which is a shame. I have hung out with the teams at Mid Ohio and they are great. It is a shame it takes a lot of money to run one of these teams and so little is paid out since so few come to the races.

By the way they have a lot of Bubbas working on the Continental cars since most are based in NC. Seems Bubba knows a thing or two about making cars go fast even left or right.Bubba is damn good at makeing all kinds of cars fast. Who did much of the GT40 work in the 60's? Holman and Moody a bunch of Bubba's did. .

I found that the Mustang and Challanger names and stickers to be a non factor last year. The only good thing here is the nose on the Camaro is nicer than the out going Impala sticker and the Camaro name will get more air time. . It is what it is and there is little way to go back and keep the crowds paying to ome in nation wide.

Seems like every good motorsport series gets RUINED by big money. Sad state of affairs for the everyday guy hot on speed but cold on cash.

It is not the money but the need and want to win. Even in my sons Soap Box Derby the rules are tight but the lenghts some go to win are crazy.

But I agree to a degree how How fast do you want to go is also related to how much do you want to spend. It has always been that way no matter the amounts. Those who were able to invest the most tend to come out on top. The fact is life is a compitition and always had a place in society and is what drives us all to become better than our station in life. Few people settle for just what they have.

In any racing there is little status quo and if there is that is the team or driver that is always in last place.

Lifes in general is a race and there are winners and loser. Often hard work and investment are rewarded and those who don't fade away. That is why I don't buy the crap about we don't keep score in kids soccer etc. We all have to learn how to compete. The sad part is the purity of it all is lost but that is the way it is.

This was the one thing I do enjoy much about Autocrosse. It is you vs the clock and it is where your driving matters and you see how you can improve on each run. I have done it in cars from Z06 to my old GMC ZQ8. It was cheap and easy to have fun and enjoy a form of motorsports.

Gee, what a wonderful assessment/indictment of NASCAR racing. You don't have to like it, but you could at least be a little tolerant and not make nasty (and I do mean nasty and uncalled for) comments about it.

      After countless months of speculation, spy photos, and someone leaking out the cover of this month's Car and Driver, Chevrolet has revealed the 2019 Corvette ZR1. This is the maddest Corvette that Chevrolet has ever built.
      Beginning under the hood, the ZR1 packs an LT5 V8 engine. While carrying the same name as the engine found in the original ZR-1, the new ZR1 skips the dual-overhead cams found in the original LT5. Instead, Corvette engineers took the supercharged 6.2L V8 found in the Z06 and installed a larger Eaton supercharger that pumps in 52 percent more air into the engine. The LT5 also features direct and port fuel injection, upgraded crankshaft, dry sump lubrication, and a 4-inch throttle body (the largest ever fitted to a Corvette). The end result is action with 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque. Chevrolet is keeping quiet the 0-60 mph time, but did say the ZR1 can reach a top speed of 210 mph.
      Like the Z06, the ZR1 will be available with the choice of a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. According to a report from Automobile, engineers tried to fit GM's new ten-speed automatic into the ZR1 but couldn't due to packaging issues with the Corvette's architecture.
      Polarizing is the best way to describe the Corvette ZR1's styling, especially in the front with large air ducts. This is to help maximize cooling with each duct featuring a radiator and intercooler. The front fenders are slightly wider to make space for wider tires. Unlike the previous ZR1 with a window on the hood showing off the supercharger assembly, the new model makes do with a carbon fiber “halo” hood featuring vents and a shaker piece covering the supercharger.
      The ZR1 shown in the photos provided by Chevrolet features the optional ZTK performance package which comes with an adjustable high-wing kit, front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and special tuning for the chassis and magnetic ride control system. The large rear wing is said to provide 60 percent more downforce than the Z06 with the optional Z07 package. The standard ZR1 sticks with a fixed, low wing that is said to deliver the highest top speed.
      Those wanting to stand out further with their ZR1 can order the Sebring Orange Design Package. It includes a Sebring Orange Tintcoat for the exterior, brake calipers finished in orange, rocker panels and splitter featuring orange stripes; orange seatbelts and stitching for the interior; and bronze aluminum trim.
      The Corvette ZR1 arrives at dealers next spring. No word on pricing, but we wouldn't be shocked if it begins over $100,000.

      2019 CORVETTE ZR1: RETURN OF THE KING
      The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever retakes its supercar crown DUBAI — The King is returning, stronger than ever.
      Chevrolet today introduced the 2019 Corvette ZR1, a supercar that pushes Corvette’s performance legacy with the highest power, greatest track performance and most advanced technology in its production history.
      “I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there’s never been one like this before,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.”
      The Corvette ZR1’s exclusive LT5 supercharged engine, which is rated at an SAE-certified 755 horsepower (563 kW) and 715 lb-ft of torque (969 Nm), is establishing a new benchmark in performance. Further, the ZR1 elevates Corvette’s track capability with two wind tunnel-honed aerodynamics packages, including an available High Wing that provides an estimated 950 pounds of downforce.
      Most powerful ever
      The ZR1’s LT5 6.2L V-8 engine advances Corvette’s supercharging legacy, which began with the 2009 sixth-generation ZR1 and continued with the 2015 seventh-generation Z06. The LT5 delivers the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Z06’s LT4 supercharger. GM’s first dual-fuel-injection system, which employs primary direct injection and supplemental port injection, helps the LT5 achieve its record output.
      Seven-speed manual and eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions are available with the LT5. It’s the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1.
      Fastest ever
      The 2019 Corvette ZR1’s aggressive appearance is driven by function, contributing to its distinction as the fastest production Corvette to date.
      An all-new front fascia is designed to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13. A special carbon-fiber “halo” hood is open in the middle to clear the LT5 engine’s supercharger/intercooler assembly. Additional features, including aero packages with stanchion-mounted wings, help push the ZR1 harder onto the track for more confident handling and faster lap times. Top speed of the ZR1 is over 210 mph.
      “As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1’s design supports its capability in every way,” said Kirk Bennion, Exterior Design manager. “The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed.”
      The ZR1 will offer two aero packages: a standard rear Low Wing, which delivers the highest top speed and helps generate up to 70 percent more downforce than the Z06’s base aero package, and an available two-way-adjustable High Wing that offers maximum downforce on the track for the quickest lap times — about 60 percent more downforce than the Z06 with the available Z07 Performance Package. All models also feature a Chevrolet-first, downforce-enhancing front underwing.
      The adjustable High Wing is part of the new ZTK Performance Package, which also includes a front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer-only tires, and specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for greater cornering grip.
      Both of the ZR1’s wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability.
      Sebring Orange Design Package
      The Corvette ZR1 introduced today also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package. Centered on its Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior color, the package also includes orange brake calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, orange seat belts, orange interior stitching and unique, bronze aluminum interior trim.
      The new design package complements the Corvette ZR1’s tradition of offering maximum performance with refinement and design distinction. The driver-focused, well-appointed cockpit includes standard leather-trimmed seats, with sueded microfiber inserts offered. Heated and vented Napa leather-trimmed seating is also available, as well as a carbon fiber-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, Performance Data Recorder, Bose premium audio system and more.
      The 2019 Corvette ZR1 goes on sale next spring, poised to take on the world’s best.
      It’s good to be the King.

      It is no secret that Chevrolet will be debuting a new Corvette ZR1. Numerous spy shots have revealed Chevrolet is going all out with a large rear wing, larger intakes, and distinctly shaped hood. We now have gotten our first look at the new ZR1 thanks to a leak.
      Corvette Blogger got their hands on a leaked image of Car and Driver's December issue which has the Corvette ZR1 front and center. The model matches up perfectly with spy photos with the various aero bits and large air intakes. The cover also reveals the ZR1 will be packing 750 horsepower, but we don't know what engine will be providing that power (our guess is a supercharged V8).
      Corvette Blogger also revealed that the ZR1 will likely debut in Dubai. A reader living in the UAE sent Corvette Blogger an invitation for a special celebratory event to mark the Corvette's 65th birthday on November 12th. A couple of outlets have confirmed this event by saying they will be going.
      After the cover leaked out, Chevrolet released a teaser video of the new Corvette with the November 12th date.

      A fresh stack of spy shots of the upcoming 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has arrived and we have gotten our first look at the interior.
      The picture reveals that the blocky dash design of the current truck is sticking around. The center stack design is similar to what you'll find in the GMC Acadia. It appears this mule is running a new version of Chevrolet's MyLink system with a new status bar along the bottom.
      We also got some new clues on the 2019 Silverado's exterior. It appears Chevrolet is keeping the blocky profile shape. The front end gets new headlights with LEDs and a revised bumper.
      We still don't know much about powertrains for the 2019 Silverado except that a 10-speed automatic that was jointly developed with Ford will be showing up.
