Hash stripes on Camaro fenders?

Recently coming over to the 5th gen Camaro, I certainly remember the Rally stripes of the 70-80-90's on muscle cars. But I think the hash stripes are new? - I really like them. Does someone know the history on them? Were they on a specific race version or racing series?

Just wondering...certainly braced for smartA$$ answers.....

" When the original Grand Sports ran at Nassau in the fall of 1963, three different colors were used on tape on the front cowl of the cars to help identify them as they passed the pits at speed. Red is used on the 1996 Grand Sport on the left front fender as a styling enhancer to tie the two generations together."

From the Corvette legends website.
