If you’ve always wanted to see The General’s mighty American icon pony car that goes by the name of Chevy Camaro to race around the massive ovals that are NASCAR tracks, you might be in luck.
Currently, Ford and Dodge run the Mustang and Challenger nameplates, respectively, in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, giving the pony cars optimal product placement whereas Chevy still operates the Impala nameplate. Ford has also gone ahead and confirmed the Mustang for the NASCAR Sprint Cup series. However Chevrolet continues to sport the Impala, which is currently a completely docile full-sized FWD sedan that seems to be approaching its 100th year in its current product lifecycle. So — to spice things up a bit — GM Racing has not turned down the idea, but rather are looking for an optimal setup in what would best capture the Camaro’s striking features onto the canvas of a stock car. Speculation puts possible implementation of the Camaro somewhere in the ballpark of 2013.
After all, the tantalizing combination of the Chevy Camaro and NASCAR sounds about as good as Shake and Bake.
