NASCAR

The anatomy of a winning program

When you set out to reinvent your NASCAR cup program, you need a proper base to build from – it’s much more than developing the car you want and sticking a badge to it. We wanted to create the most authentic connection between track and showroom, so we started with Camaro ZL1. With rear-wheel drive, a 650-horsepower small-block fuel-injected V8 and manual transmission, it provides the perfect platform for racing success.

Chevrolet NASCAR

A digital approach to design

Engineers utilized driver in the loop simulators and input from our teams during development of the vehicle to help refine overall vehicle balance. The result? We were able to hit our rigid aerodynamic standards for this car. We also incorporated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis into development – more CFD than all previous cup programs combined. This allowed for an efficient, iterative design process.

Turning wind into wins

We then took things to the wind tunnel, where we tested a 40% scale model of the cup car based on what we learned from CFD analysis. This rolling road system allowed us to measure sensitivities to drag and downforce in less time. In fact, we did more scale model testing than any other previous Chevrolet cup program. From there, we tested a full-size model, utilizing clay and rapid-prototyped parts across hundreds of body variations until we hit aero targets.

A winning heritage

The Camaro name is synonymous with speed, making it the perfect foundation for our NASCAR program. From the original special order 1969 ZL1 with its all-aluminum 427-cu.-in. V8 to today’s high tech 650-horsepower monster, ZL1 has always been the most powerful, most advanced Camaro on the road or track.
