NASCAR Fans Will See New-Look Chevy Camaro Race in 2020 at IMS

Chevrolet teams will feature a sleek new look in the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line on July 5, 2020 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as Chevy will switch to the Camaro ZL1 1LE in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2020.

The new Camaro replaces the Camaro ZL1, which made its series debut in 2018. 

Camaro ZL1 1LE -- based on the fastest, most track-capable production Camaro ever – will make its competition debut next February during Daytona Speedweeks, which opens the 2020 NASCAR season. 

“The ZL1 1LE is the highest performer within the Camaro production-car lineup,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “We took lessons from the production car and applied them to the new 2020 Cup car.”

Chevrolet engineers optimized aerodynamic performance by employing an array of tools, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD), simulation, and reduced-scale and full-scale wind-tunnel testing. 

In 2019, Camaro ZL1 has produced seven wins thus far and powered five Team Chevy drivers – Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch, Kyle Larson, Alex Bowman and William Byron – into the 2019 NASCAR playoffs.

Camaro ZL1 1LE builds on a winning legacy: Chevrolet has won a record 39 NASCAR manufacturer championships – including 13 consecutive titles from 2003-15. In addition, Chevrolet drivers have achieved a record 31 championships, including Jimmie Johnson’s seventh in 2016.

Chevrolet drivers and teams also have won the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard a record 17 times in 26 editions of the annual NASCAR classic.

The 27th annual NASCAR event at IMS is moving to the Fourth of July weekend in 2020, taking place July 1-5. Action will start with the Driven2SaveLives BC39 Powered by NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget race July 1-2 at The Dirt Track at IMS, followed by the NASCAR Xfinity Series Indiana 250 on Saturday, July 4 and the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line for the NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday, July 5.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Nov. 1 at IMS.com and the IMS Ticket Office for all three of those events.
