In 2010, NASCAR introduced a new car for their minor league Nationwide Series and encouraged the manufacturers to use muscle car bodies.

And the automakers kind of listened. Ford brought a Mustang and Dodge brought a Challenger. But Chevy and Toyota decided their "muscle cars" were the Impala and the Camry. Thankfully, that will change for 2013.

Chevy just showed off the brand new Camaro body they'll be using in Nationwide competition for 2013 this morning.
Does it have any relationship to the Camaro you can by for the street? None whatsoever.

Does it look more badass than an Impala or a Camry? Damn right it does. This is the first NASCAR racer that's made us drop our jaw in a while.

Hideous looking. Looks like a mockup for the forthcoming cars 3. I'm sure my daughters will love it.

If you want to see the Camaros battling out with Porsche and mustang. tomorrow at 4pm Eastern time on Speed they will show the Rolex Sports Car Series debut at the Indianapolis Speedway for the first time ever. I've been watching this series for a few years now and at every race when they ask the other teams about the Camaros, they all are always worried about the speed of those cars. most of the time they are battling each other.

My dad works for Katech Performance which built the engine for the Stevenson Camaro -- I think it's Rolex series? Not sure. Any case, whenever a car with their engine in it wins, the owner buys everyone lunch. Pretty cool!

It looks awful!!! What the hell happened to GM saying we're not going to run the Camaro in NASCAR because the proportions from street production car to race car around the green house won't fit properly. Good grief that thing in hideous!!! I'd rather see them run a covered wagon than trying to stretch the body all out of proportion to fit. It should have been the new Malibu. This is all kinds of wrong.
