I need to see more footage of these type races I found this on you tube pretty cool. Around 1:50 was awesome he almost overtook on the inside.

I'm amazed so many Camaro guys seem to be unaware of Rolex Grand-Am and the Continental Tire Series. Camaro has a very strong road racing heritage going back to the original Trans-Am. The Nationwide car looks alright - mostly just glad the name is in the series - but real Camaro racing happens on circuits with left and right turns.

i would take grand am over nascar any day of the week...driving in a circle...vs left right, increasing radius, decreasing radius, off camber, banked...banked changing to off camber while going over a rise etc etc etc....roadracing has it in spades over circle track.

and if you really wanna see where the men race, watch moto gp...nascar smaskar.....try 215mph with just a leather suit, and then having to brake very hard for a turn - and that turn might go right, lol. makes talladega look like a walk in the park.

of course this is all my opinion, obviously other feel different lol

No need to be arguing about which racing series is the best. This thread was not to start a war. Geese you can't even pass on good news without a bunch of complainers coming in and trying to take over the thread. I am just sick of you all . You all just need to get over it.

Thats the thing,they didn't want to use the Camaro because of the proportions,but a lot of people were bitching-moaning-groaning-complaining saying...."we want the Camaro on the track"
So here it is

When Ford and Chrysler announced it would be racing the Mustang and Challenger in the Nationwide series Many people on this forum called for Chevy to run the Camaro. The Malibu would have been a mistake because just as the Impala it does not compete with the Mustang or Challenger. NASCAR had asked for all the manufacturers to use a muscle car as their nationwide race car. Chevy at first didn't want to bastardized the shape of the Camaro. But since then the success of both the Mustang and Challanger in the Nationwide series and their popularity along with the fact the Impala will no longer be the Cup entry they felt the time was right to switch to the Camaro. In the long run I feel Toyota will be the loser since they do not make anything similar to the Camaro, Mustang or Challenger.

Is it a perfect rendition of of the Camaro, No. But just having the Camaro name in front of millions of race fans every week can't be bad.

FWIW, I prefer road racing, but I like NASCAR, too. The best NASCAR racing all year is at the road tracks, one of which - Sonoma - is 20 minutes from here, so I get both at the same time!

I honestly know nothing about Nascar, Until I saw this car, I honestly thought they were all the same shape but with different designs on them.

I'm glad they got a Camaro out there, its just funny looking to me. Can't help it.

Yeah but this thread is about the Camaro in NASCAR Nationwide Series, not Trans am or any other series...talking about those others is off topic. I started this thread I should have some say what is discussed in it, isn't that fair? If you want to talk about those others you can start another thread.
