It would have been a shame if a car as potent and as capable as the 2018 Camaro ZL1 didn’t have some sort of motorsport career. But that’s a problem you no longer have to worry about because Chevy has just announced the ZL1 NASCAR Cup Race Car, set to make its competition debut next February during Daytona Speedweeks.
Joining the Camaro SS, which has been Chevrolet’s entry in the NASCAR XFINITY Series since 2013, to bolster Chevrolet’s presence in this field of racing the 2018 Camaro ZL1 NASCAR Cup has been carefully engineered to ensure success. The car benefits from a 90-degree V8 motor which is closely related to 650 horsepower unit in the production model, and it has been fine-tuned with computational fluid dynamics analysis and reduced-scale and full-scale wind-tunnel testing to optimize aerodynamic performance.

“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, who was joined by seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson — driver of the #48 Lowe’s Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports — to reveal the car. “We are thrilled to run Camaro in NASCAR next year, with the time-honored and track-tested ZL1 badge, and we’re just as excited for our drivers, teams, fans and customers.”
