First Look: The 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series Chevy Camaro

By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor

Thursday, at Daytona International Speedway Chevrolet unveiled the new sixth-generation Camaro SS body style that will be on track for the 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

Simply stated, it’s beautiful.

“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.”

According to Chevrolet, computational fluid dynamics analysis as well as traditional full and reduced scale wind tunnel development was used to shape the new design.

If you fell asleep during all of those big words, it just means that the new Camaro is now shaped like a bullet, and should be much more aerodynamic than the current model on the racetrack this season.

Overall, Chevrolet has won 408 Xfinity Series events since the modern era began — 1982.
