Chevrolet is going to make a powerful landing this weekend at Daytona International Speedway with three models leading the grid in each of the NASCAR divisions, which this Sunday will experience its great celebration with the dispute of the Daytona 500.

It is the most-watched race in the United States and to lead the 40-participant platoon, Chevrolet has appointed its sports car par excellence, the Corvette Stingray Coupé, which will do the work of Pace Car for the sixth time in this test.

For its part, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will be the guide in the Xfinity Series while the Silverado 1500 RST pickup will do it in the Camping World Truck Series. All of them will share the classic 6.2-liter V8 engine from which the racing blocks are also derived.

Adding the performance of the three engines of the three models of the Detroit firm there will be no less than 1,388 hp at the front of the grills. Although Chevrolet will prefer to lead in the checkered flag and for this it will also make a great display in the Daytona 500, with 19 cards of the 44 entered, of which 40 will qualify for the race.

As is mandatory, the Pace Cars will be decorated specifically for this great event. In this case with Rapid Blue paint a color that will be offered as an option on the Camaro MY2022 with black as a contrasting tone and, of course, the Daytona 500 logos on its body.
