(Daytona Beach, FL) - Saturday Night's Checkered Flag in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway marked the thrilling conclusion of a grueling 26-week span known as NASCAR's "Regular Season" and signaled the green flag on NASCAR's 10-Week Playoff run. Once the smoke had cleared, five fire breathing Chevrolet Camaros emerged as the Championship Chariots among the sixteen formidable contenders gearing up to compete in NASCAR's Postseason.
Heading into the 2023 NASCAR Playoffs, Chevrolet's lineup is nothing short of stellar. An All-Star ensemble of Camaro drivers takes the stage, including illustrious former NASCAR Cup Champions, Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch. Sharing the limelight are titans like 2023 Daytona 500 Champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr., along with the upcoming talents of William Byron and Ross Chastain. In a spectacular display of prowess, the Team Chevy Camaros have masterfully clinched victory in an astonishing 14 out of the 26 races held during the 2023 campaign.
