Chevrolet Camaro makes its big-league NASCAR debut in 2018 Daytona 500


The days of stock cars sharing body stampings and engine blocks with those on the showroom floor are long gone, but Chevrolet is hoping that Camaro ZL1’s unique ties to its superspeedway counterpart will win the hearts of fans. While Toyota’s NASCAR entry assumes the visual cues of the Camry and Ford fields the Fusion, both of which are front-wheel-drive sedans powered by four- and six-cylinder power plants, the 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 shares the rear-wheel-drive V-8 layout of the NASCAR racer that makes its big-league debut at the Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 18.
