“Chevrolet, Camaro and ZL1 are synonymous with victories both on and off the track,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of GM Global Product Development. He added: “We are excited to bring the Camaro to the Cup next year with the ZL1 badge and we are so excited about our drivers, teams, fans and customers.”
“The drivers relied on Camaro to win races and championships in sports and amateur and professional races, as well as in the NASCAR XFINITY Series,” said Jim Campbell, vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.
“The new ZL1 Camaro is a race car with a great heritage behind it, which will make it a big hit for fans,” said Johnson. “And as someone who has enjoyed the ZL1 on the street, I’m really looking forward to having this new race car.”
Chevrolet is the most successful brand in NASCAR history, winning a record 39 manufacturer titles, including 13 consecutive from 2003 to 2015.
