The majority of NASCAR fans will be playing close attention to the remaining four drivers left in the Chase for the Sprint Cup come Sunday, but the guys at Team Chevy will be glued to their seats as they aim for the 12th consecutive manufacturer’s trophy.
In order to lock down this season’s manufacturer’s cup, the top-finishing Chevrolet driver will have to come in 38th place or better. Coincidentally, if the bowtie wins, it will mark the brand’s 38th Cup Series manufacturers’ championship. It will also be the second championship for the SS nameplate, which replaced the Impala for the 2013 season.
According to Racer, the SS has racked up 35 wins with 10 different drivers since its debut at the Daytona 500 in February of 2013. Partially contributing to those wins was Kevin Harvick and Ryan Newman, who are still left in the Chase for the Sprint Cup and could score Chevy its 30th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver’s title since the series’ inception in 1949.
Watch as team Chevy attempts to earn the bowtie both the driver’s and manufacturer’s championships at Homestead Miami Speedway on Sunday at 3:00 p.m.
