Chevrolet is currently involved in so many different racing series and ventures, it’s no surprise this past weekend was one of the most successful in its history in regards to motorsports. According to RACER, Chevy scored major victories in seven different race series this weekend, including racing’s headline event, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
In addition to Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Jordan Taylor’s GTE Pro class win at Le Mans in the Corvette C7.R, Chevy won races in NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA and more. Chevy’s Kurt Busch led a 1-2-3 Chevy podium in the Quicken Loans 400 at MIS, while Josef Newgarden, Luca Filippi and Helio Castroneves made it 1-2-3 at the Honda Indy Toronto for Chevy. On top of this, John Force won again in his NHRA Camaro Funny Car while Greg Anderson secured first place in Pro Stock in his Camaro.
It doesn’t stop there, as Chevy also won races in some of the lower-tier series. Cole Custer scored his first win in the NASCAR Camping World truck series Saturday night in his Silverado, while Ross Kenseth, son of Matt Kenseth, won the ARCA race at MIS.
“There have been weekends in the past where we won everything but we weren’t in as many categories, so this is probably the best in many years and obviously a special weekend,” Chevrolet race director Mark Kent told RACER. “I kept track of everything through the internet and emails so I knew things were going pretty good. I think it shows what strong teams we have and the fact we have a fantastic group of people up here.”
