FOREVER A HOUSEHOLD NAME

   
February 15, 1948, on a beach, just south of Daytona Beach, Florida, the flag drops on the first National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing-sanctioned race.

And while the premise of NASCAR has been, as the name suggests, racing “stock cars,” the machines have progressed far beyond those vehicles you can buy in showrooms, with multiple modifications made to enhance performance, safety and dependability. Still, the Chevrolet SS we race in the top NASCAR series, Sprint Cup, is based on the exterior design of the SS you can buy, and like the racing version, the SS is rear-wheel-drive and powered by a Chevrolet fuel-injected V8 engine.

The NASCAR teams that race Chevrolet benefit from aerodynamics perfected in the wind tunnel and the latest developments in fuel efficiency and safety. In return, Chevrolet gains major insight about engine reliability and dependability over the course of a season that stretches from February to November on tracks ranging from superspeedways like Daytona International Speedway to tiny half-mile bullrings like Bristol Motor Speedway.

Over the course of its history, Chevrolet has won the Sprint Cup Manufacturers’ Championship 37 times, including the last 11 years straight. And no brand has powered more Sprint Cup champions, including Jimmie Johnson, who has won the title six times in the last eight years.
